While we were visiting Walt Disney World back in September, the Hubster and I were fortunate enough to get to attend Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for the second time, thanks to my Tina from Sugar Bean Bakers. She surprised me with tickets to the party just before we left for Florida, and I’m so happy she did!
I really wanted to go, but I wasn’t sure if we would, because last time we went, it wasn’t great. It was crowded, crowded, crowded, and frankly…boring. The lines for the trick-or-treat areas were ridiculously long – oftentimes filled with only adults…which always confuses me, because if you can afford MNSSHP tickets, you can definitely afford to go buy a bunch of Halloween candy, rather than tying up the lines for kids. But I digress…the lines were long, so we didn’t even trick-or-treat last time. It was no great loss, since we can get candy any old time, but I was looking forward to going trick-or-treating again! I haven’t been since I was a kid. Turns out, adults don’t like giving candy to other adults. There were also very few people – adults or children – dressed in costumes. In fact, the majority of them weren’t even dressed in Halloween-themed clothes. For me, half the fun is seeing people’s creativity shine through in their costumes/costume choices.
- white, off-white, or pale yellow short-sleeved button-down shirt or polo
- brown sweater vest
- khaki pants or shorts
- white socks, preferably slightly taller socks, pushed down (the Hubster only had ankle cut socks, but they still looked great)
- brown shoes, preferably a lace-up shoe, like low-cut boots (the Hubster wore brown boat shoes, for comfort in the Florida heat)
- black glasses
- grape soda pin, worn on the left side
- aviator hat
- blue helium balloon with “Spirit of Adventure” written on it (optional)
