SoundSational Annual Passholder Event

Before we begin, I want to give a big, big, BIG Thank You to Disneyland for this special event. It was so cool, so much fun and very much appreciated!!

I'm at the ticket booth and I've checked in but the castmember had to step away for a moment...

As I walk up to the entrance, I just had to take a little video, LOL.

Here are my goodies:  Show schedule and photo claim number. Which reminds me, I have to go get my photos!

I started my evening by getting a Pumpkin Spice Mocha and Matterhorn Macaroon. Sooooooooooo good!

Love that Mickey bat cookie.

So now I'm sitting in the Carnation Cafe area, enjoying my goodies and watching the regular guests leave the Park in droves. Ah...so relaxing!

It didn't take me long to devour this puppy!

Next, I took a seat on a bench near the hub to wait for the parade and snapped a couple of pics.

Then I got a text message from Myrna - she is the other photographer for The Disneyland Gazette - so I left the hub area to join Myrna and her friends by Pixie Hollow. We had a great viewing spot for the parade!

After the parade...

So after I followed the parade a bit, I ducked into Coke Corner to see if I had missed any new artwork the last time I was there and I did. So here they are for your enjoyment.

Unfortunately, the stores on Main Street were closed. Strange, isn't it???

What? We can't spend money??? Well phooey then...let's go to Tomorrowland.

Either they anticipated a LONG line for Star Tours or these were left from earlier in the day.

I love this new antenna ball that looks like a Mickey head ice cream on a stick!

For all you Michael Jackson fans, now you can purchase a hat and glove. It will look great when you do all of your dance moves in the breakroom at work. Trust me on this.

Cool shirt, no?

Even cooler Halloween stuff!

Some new mouse ear hats I had not noticed before...

What's next? Ghost Galaxy!! Woohoo!

I know it's hard to see but it said the wait time was only 15 minutes. Guess what? It was 10!

hee hee hee....

Time to go back to Main Street and check out the floats. Silly me, I thought they were going to have ALL of the floats out but no, only a select few. The lines were long to have your photo taken in front of the float so I decided to focus on a few details instead.

Look at that face!

The Mary Poppins float has the adorable penguins that I love.

For some reason, I took Aladdin's float with my phone.

And then I noticed the cool coffins in the window to my right...

Let's get back to the penguins, shall we?

Can you guess what this is? A pinata!

I decided to stand in line for this one...

...and here I am looking like a dufus.

Here's something you never see: City Hall is empty.

By this time it was 11:30 pm and I was cold and tired so I left and made my way to the tram...but not before taking one more picture!

Oh wait, when I got off the tram I took one more picture!

Hope you guys enjoyed this!

I really love how you 'peek' into store fronts. Really makes me feel that I am there.
Thanks Connie, you bring your fun to each post.
