Check out this Blog about Disney Ghosts, very interesting and spooky.
Reports of Ghosts at several places inside Walt Disney World.

I just finished reading The Canterville Ghost a short story by Oscar Wilde this week. I downloaded it for free on my Kindle.
One word…awesome. I was hooked from the start.
I confess I haven’t read any Oscar Wilde until now, but it’s so apparent from reading this story that he was so incredibly talented, witty, and clever. I am looking forward to reading more by Wilde. I know the story of Dorian Gray, but only through movies.
The story is quite humorous at the start and takes a more serious tone towards the end as you see the story unfold about the ghost Sir Simon.
When I have a chance I’m going to see if I can watch some movies based on the book to see how it translates to film versions.
My favorite quote from the book:
“It was his solemn duty to appear in the corridor once a week, and to gibber from the large oriel window on the first and third Wednesdays in every month…”
Unfortunately, I won’t be going to Magic Kingdom on Halloween. But I had the pleasure of attending Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party earlier this month and seeing the terrific HalloWishes Fireworks. It’s great that they do have these parties because in a way you are getting to celebrate Halloween ahead of time without having to brave the huge crowds that must be in attendance on the actual day, I’m sure they sold out early this year.
Hope you enjoy my “postcard”. Wishing you all a very Happy Halloween!
Finally got around to watching Maleficent. Yay! Finally a movie I wanted to watch from my Netflix DVD rentals! (Wow, has it really been that long since it came out…17 months?!)
I have to say that I was really impressed. My only criticisms were that I thought it started out a little slow (but it got much better). And second, I didn’t like the grown up Stefan’s accent and voice, it annoyed me.
Overall I think that Angelina Jolie did an excellent job in her role as Maleficent. The story itself was interesting and I liked the spin.
I think it’s worth watching if you haven’t seen it. I’d watch it again.
Love this ornament! I need to buy this. Bad news… it’s $21.95…for one! Holy Hell! I like to stick my finger in between his teeth.
Even though I didn’t buy it this time, I still enjoyed looking through the entire Christmas shop at the Magic Kingdom during the last Electrical Parade of the night, the place was practically empty.
Good news, it’s also available at the Disney Store online. Maybe it will go on sale or they may email some discount promo. Annual Pass only gets a 10% Discount anyways, same as the Disney Visa for the Disneystore.com
This is so cute. Love the colors and packaging. I didn’t ask about what flavors they used since I was only taking a photo. Because it is blue, I am guessing maybe blue raspberry or grape? I’m not sure if they have this all year round, this is something I saw when at Magic Kingdom for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
I love anything Haunted Mansion themed. Just an FYI for anyone who also loves the Haunted Mansion, there is some great merchandise in the Memento Mori Shop which is right outside the ride. (Used to be the Smucker’s Jelly Store).
Saw these Star Wars themed gingerbread pins in a gift shop in Epcot. The back of the box here, shows all the different collectible pins. The box is a mystery box, you don’t know what random pins will be inside.
These are so unbelievably cute.
How incredibly random, I managed to take a photo of two of the Pointer Sisters pointing. Gosh, I am nerdy sometimes.
They were putting on a great show at Epcot. Epcot has Eat to the Beat concerts all during the Food and Wine Festival with many talented and famous performers. And there is no additional cost to enjoy the concert of the day, it’s all included in your Epcot ticket price.
