We had fun at Disneyland with friends… again! This time during the Halloween celebration. We arrived and rode on Space Mountain- Ghost Galaxy. It is a Halloween-themed Space Mountain. The plot is you are in a spaceship and encounter a space demon. It attacks you, and you fly around to try and avoid the demon. The ship avoids the monster and makes it into the space station.
After that, we toured the galaxy in Star Tours. There are two planets you visit. The best experience I had was on the second planet. It was Coruscant. In that one you go straight down during the Battle of Coruscant. It isn’t a roller coaster but a simulator. The mechanism works by tilting you straight down to make it like you are free-falling because that’s what is shows on the video. You are in the wrong lane when you stop falling. All the spaceships are coming towards you. There are a lot of ships, too. The battered tour ship lands in a secret hangar and the ride is over.
After that, we went to find our friends at Steamboat Willie. We thought they meant the Main Street Theater because it shows Steamboat Willie which was the first Mickey Mouse cartoon. They meant the Mark Twain Steamboat, but we didn’t know it. When we couldn’t find them, we took a picture with the pumpkin Mickey head.
We found them outside the Golden Horseshoe. It is a restaurant in Frontierland. We didn’t eat there, but we met them there. All of us departed to The Haunted Mansion Holiday featuring The Nightmare Before Christmas. It is much more comical the normal one.
The stretching room shows paintings of people. They elongate to reveal they are in danger. For example, before it stretches there was a lady walking. After it stretches, that particular lady is in danger owing to the fact she is tightoping above an alligator. When it shows the skeleton on the top of that room in the normal Haunted Mansion, Jack Skellington appears on the ceiling. After the secret passage in the stretching room opens, you find a hallway with some busts. Their eyes seem to follow you. The busts are in alcoves in the wall, but you can’t tell that unless you look closely. A few of the details include a clock with 13 hours, a ghost whose head appears in his hatbox,
and a floating head encased in a ball. You exit the ride through a tomb.
Our family and friends then cruised over to California Adventure. While there, we enjoyed a milkshake at Ghirardelli Chocolate. After that, we went to Boudin Sourdough. Finally, we toured Monstropolis on Monster Inc. Before we left, the group went to an AP Days event and met Meeko the raccoon in Pocahontas. That was one of the best days at Disneyland
