T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Fall Is OFFICIALLY Here!

A few weeks ago I wrote about how pumped I was for the Fall Season to begin at Walt Disney World – and while that might have been a bit premature with it barely being September and all – now I can say with certainty that fall is TRULY upon us (it officially started yesterday!) so that means all things FALL are HERE (whether you like it or not, ha!)

WDW’s Magic Kingdom is all dressed up for fall – and even if you aren’t a fall fan, you can surely appreciate the awesomeness of this photo – creepy, spooky, and full of fall flair! Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is in full swing, and let’s just say that fall is a great time to head to Walt Disney World – the food, décor, merchandise and overall spirit of autumn are all in the air!

T.G.I.F Pic Of The Week: A Closer Look At Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

One of my dreams is to someday spend Halloween at Walt Disney World – and to dress in costume to attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. WHY, you might be wondering? Well, it just sounds like too much fun to pass up!

For those not familiar with the event, it’s held on select evenings in September and October, and features trick or treating, a Halloween parade, special character appearances and more. Check it out:

Kids of all ages get into the Happy Halloween spirit while trick-or-treating during MickeyÕs Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. The family-friendly after-hours event also offers dance parties, meet and greets with favorite characters in costume, plus the must-see "Mickey's Boo-to-You Halloween Parade" and "Happy HalloWishes" fireworks display.

Ok so I know that maybe I am slightly biased because I love fall so much, but I just can’t imagine a more fun way to spend Halloween than at DISNEY WORLD – with candy, dressed up characters, and pumpkins galore!
I can just picture myself – dressed as Minnie Mouse, enjoying a delicious caramel apple as I take in the parade…#fallgoals #maybesomeday

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – #FallVibes

Personally – I am already into fall mode – I have decorations up, apples have been picked (and made into applesauce!), and pumpkin coffees and lattes have been obtained from various local baristas. And while many of you may think it’s too early for this, I can assure you – it’s NOT, and guess what – DISNEY AGREES WITH ME!

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party has already started this year, too believe it or not (including exclusive party snacks):

When Is The BEST Time To Go To WDW?

image8

I get asked this a lot – people always want to know when is the best time to travel to Walt Disney World – and let’s be real – what they are REALLY asking is when is the cheapest/least crowded time to go. I can’t blame them – Disney is expensive, and the crowds can really put a damper on your fun (that you paid so much for). So, in the interest of saving money and attempting to avoid the crowds, here are my top three best times to visit WDW:

Early December: The crowds won’t be super light at this time, so you might be wondering “why rank this as a top choice?” and that would be solely based on the Christmas decorations. That’s right – they are THAT amazing – the decorations, the live entertainment and Christmas music, the huge Christmas trees at each Park, the gingerbread displays, the Christmas/holiday themed food – it’s all amazing, and worth braving a bit of a crowd for. If you’re a huge Christmas fanatic (like me!) I highly recommend you consider an early December WDW trip. While going the week of Christmas may seem appealing – I advise you to resist the urge – as the Resort prices are higher, and the crowds are INSANE – so earlier in the month is generally a much better choice

Late September/Early October: This time of year at Disney World is great for a lot of reasons. The attendance numbers tend to be some of the lowest of the year, due in part to the return of most kids to school in September (and parents not wanting to take their kids out of classes so soon after they have just begun!). The weather is mild (still warm but not as painfully hot and humid as the summer months), and fall season is in full swing at the Parks! There are pumpkins everywhere you turn, plus seasonal fall foods are offered around the Parks too (pumpkin flavored items galore – yum!). If you’re a big Halloween fan, this is the perfect time for you to go to WDW – as Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party begins in late September and runs through October. The Party includes trick or treating, a special Halloween themed parade, and plenty of character meet and greets as well

Early May: Statistically this is one of the best times to go to WDW, as the attendance numbers tend to be some of the lowest of any other time of the year. And since it’s not a “peak” time – the prices to stay at WDW are lower, too! If crowds are your main concern when planning your Disney trip, then this is your time to go! The weather is great too – you might see some rain, but overall, spring at Disney is warm (but not hot!) and sunny, which means you’ll be able to get in plenty of pool and water park time

So there they are, my top 3 Best Times to travel to Disney World. Obviously, this is just my opinion and you might have a totally different experience or other thoughts on the matter – but from what I have seen, these are the best. I would love to know what YOU think thoughwhat’s your favorite time to travel to WDW (aside from ANYTIME, of course, ha!)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Why Halloween Is The PERFECT Time To Visit WDW

While every day at WDW is sure to be an amazing one, there are certain days/times of the year that are more magical than others. Personally, I LOVE Disney at Christmastime – the decorations, the food, the sounds, the smells – it’s all amazing! BUT – it is also one of the BUSIEST times of the year at the Parks, with crowds so thick that the wait time for Space Mountain is 2.5 hours or more…so understandably, not everyone would jump at the chance to head there in late December.

All things considered, the perfect time of year for visiting WDW is really around Halloween time – the crowds are lighter, the weather cooler, and the décor and atmosphere is just as amazing (if not more so!) than at Christmas! Check out these shots of Halloween at WDW:

Halloween 1

Trick or treat, meet and greet with characters, and enjoy an exclusive parade – all of this and more can be found at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

Halloween 3 Halloween 2 Halloween 5

The décor is really amazing at this time of year – they go all out with pumpkins and fall theming everywhere!

Halloween 9 Halloween 8 Halloween 6 Halloween 7

And what would a Halloween celebration be without themed treats? Decorated and delicious – these will delight those of all ages (not to mention make me drool all over my keyboard…)

I can’t WAIT to bring my son to experience Halloween at Walt Disney World – I just know he will find it as amazingly magical as I do!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween to everyone! Hope you enjoy this fun holiday as much as I do – I love scary movies and trick or treating and candy and costumes and decorating for it – it’s a great time for all, and now that I have a little guy of my own, it will be great to get to experience it all with him too!

20141023_112219

Here’s my little guy all ready to party! Ok well maybe not party – maybe take a nap. and poop. But still – he’s dressed for the occasion anyway! He also has a Mickey Mouse costume to rock out tonight when we hand out candy (what kind of Disney lover would I be if I didn’t have a Disney costume for him, right?!)

Speaking of Disney costumes, you can buy them pretty much everywhere now – costume stores, Target, Walmart, KMart – you name a store, they carry Disney Halloween gear! If you’re planning on heading to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at WDW’s Magic Kingdom, then you will definitely want to think about what to wear to it – costumes are encouraged and are a must for any trick or treating party! People really like to think outside the box when it comes to dressing for the party:

Halloween1

Toy Story Themed Toys – Love this as a family costume idea!

Halloween2

Haunted Mansion characters – so creative!

Halloween3

UP themed couple’s costume

Halloween4

These Mickey Bars look delicious, don’t they?!

Halloween5

Classic Couple Mickey And Minnie pose for a kiss!

So while you can buy premade Disney costumes anywhere, if you use your imagination you can probably come up with something even more unique and amazing to wear to the Party – whether it be at Disney or at home!

Enjoy your Halloween – and TGIF!
