Disney’s Grown Up: Special Halloween Announcement

Hello, readers and writers! Today I have a special announcement regarding my Halloween plans, something which I alluded to in my video post for Banned Books Week. Those of you who receive The Scrapbook, the newsletter for The Writer’s Scrap Bin, already know about my end-of-October plans, but I’m going to elaborate a little more here.

So, Banned Books Week is over and Halloween is almost here. What am I going to do next? I’m going to DISNEYLAND!

No joke, readers. I’m going to Disneyland for the end of October/beginning of November. Better yet, my mom and I have tickets to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party on none other than HALLOWEEN NIGHT.

In case you can’t tell by the all-caps, I’m pretty excited. I’ve wanted to go to this event for years, and my mom managed to wrangle tickets for the best night of the year for our first time attending. Sometimes the stars align just right, and that’s when you know you have to go for it.

Now, I teased in my Banned books Week video that I was preparing for some video posts at the end of this month. I’m going to be posting videos from Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party as well as the other festivities for the week that I’m down in SoCal, and readers of The Scrapbook will be able to access additional, videos after I’ve returned from my trip.

I’ll also be giving you tips about planning and executing an October/November Disneyland trip, telling you how to get around the park with the least hassle, and cluing you in on some of the big changes the Land is currently undergoing.

There’s still one part of the trip I’m keeping secret until the last minute: my costume for the big night. This is partly to have a little fun with it and partly because I’m still securing the last parts of my costume. For now, I can only leave you with this farewell: Au revoir!
