Halloween picture gallery from Disney’s Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom picture gallery

I’ve been very busy with my Vermont vacation. Right after that I brought my sister down to enjoy the Disney theme parks. We went to Disney’s Magic Kingdom about a week before Halloween.

Of course that means they had the park decked out in Halloween decorations, with Mickey’s not so scary Halloween party going on at selected nights. I decided to take a bunch of pictures there and make a picture gallery.

I tried to get most of the Halloween decorations in the pictures. But I also took shots of the new fantasyland they are building, with some areas already done.

I also took shots of the newly re-done Mickey’s toon land, with the twin Dumbo rides and lots more. So there’s a bit of everything in here to see. So check out my Disney’s Magic Kingdom Halloween picture gallery page below, enjoy! :)

I’m back from my Vermont vacation!

Vermont vacation

I guess I never told anyone, but I went up to my home state of Vermont recently for a vacation of my own! The fall foliage was early this year and pretty good with lots of colors.

When I came back, I brought back my mom and sister so they can have their own little vacation. It’s my mom’s first time in Florida so I have lots to show her.

We will do Disney’s Magic Kingdom, SeaWorld, Universal Studios and lots of smaller attractions. We are going to take an airboat ride as my sister wants to do that.

So it’s been a very busy few weeks the past few weeks. Expensive too! But it’s nice to finally have my mom and sister down here at the same time so we can do that “family thing”.

Anyways I’ll try to make a picture gallery of the Vermont fall foliage pictures I took and put them on here soon. If you’ve never been to Vermont in the fall I highly suggest you do, just dress warm! :)
