Disneyland In October BEAUTIFUL

My husband and I had the luck and the opportunity to take a trip to Disneyland with our daughter, Kirstin, her husband Pepe and their twin boys. We had such a great time and as you can see, the park was decorated for fall, my favorite season of all.
Pumpkins were everywhere, Pluto pumpkins, Mickey pumpkins, Donald and Goofy too.

This was at the entrance to the park, just behind the train station and the start of Main Street. Yoohoo! We can't wait to get started.

A giant Mickey Mouse welcomes everyone as they enter. What a photo opt.

Main Street was decorated with fall banners and pumpkins.

As many times as I have visited Disneyland, I don't think I have ever gone in October. I will go again during this time of year, it's just too pretty not to.

Outside of Mr. Toads wild ride was Kirstin and the boys, Jack and Kyler. This was their first trip to the magic kingdom.......but it won't be their last!!! :)

I think they would rather be "riding the ride" then having their picture taken. What child wouldn't??!!

Ahhhh, hanging spanish moss outside the Haunted Mansion. This attraction was made for Halloween and decorated through out. It was a site to see and I prefered it much better than during the year. If you are no stranger to Jack and Sally from a Nightmare Before Christmas, then you would love this attraction now.
The roof top of the mansion had pumpkins, skulls, candles and so much more.

The candles come on in the evening, just imagine how fantastic is looks at night.
Now, I would love one of these wreaths on my front door. Notice the spider webs behind the wreaths.


Vines painted black were wrapped all around the lamps, mini pumpkins too.

Jack is there to greet you.

Lots of pumpkins at the base of Jack.
Here he is at the entrance gate to the mansion. I want one!!

Quite the center piece, so sorry for the blur, I was moving in line.

Pumpkins on the hill around the mansion, they have candles in them that lite up at night after dark.......so cool.
A little bit of what they look like lite up. You need to use your imagination, ok?

Is Christmas here yet???

Hi Char! Thank you so much for your very sweet comments on my blog. I decided a long time ago I wasn't going to let my geographic location dictate what the inside of my house looks like. (Or the outside if I can help it!) I was born and raised here, but really long for more green! I think I've been through Queen Creek once or twice. Do you live on one of those farms? I think I would like living in a smaller town.

I really enjoyed looking at your pics of Disneyland. I haven't been there since I was a kid. I'm sure you and your family had a fabulous time!!
Have a wonderful weekend sweetie!!!

Now that is a lot of pumpkins! I've been to Disneyland a few times, but never in the fall . . . perhaps I should put that on my 'to do list'!

Thanks for sharing!
