I entered the Magic Kingdom about 5:30 PM and went to check out the old Mickey meet first. I noticed that Mickey is still supplying unconnected Fastpasses (you can get Mickey Fastpass and any other at the same time). The Princess FP machines were closed because they were moved to Fantasyland, as I discussed yesterday.

EuroRob and I wanted to be among the first to experience Fairytale Hall during a party, so we headed for the Rapunzel and Flynn Rider line. It was REALLY confusing. Previously, they allowed a standy by line to form off to the side and then after all the day guests were flushed from the line, the party guests would line up to meet the Princes with their Princesses. We knew Flynn would be super popular, so we lined for him first. After a few minutes of confusing, Melissa and Ryan worked through the line assisting day guests who wanted to meet Princesses while the rest of us stayed in line for the Princes. I like to see Disney respond when things aren’t working 100%. We ended up waiting like 25 minutes, but it didn’t bother us because we were there to have fun, not to try to meet every character imaginable.
There was a considerable line forming for Cinderella, so we decided to come back right after the fireworks, which we watched from Fantasyland. We headed over to meet Goofy at the Barnstormer because I like unique locations, even when the character is in a familiar costume. We passed Donald and Daisy, who looked like they were planning a football play. The Photopass person didn’t know football and the only photo I got was the 8th Wonder of the World…the backside of Donald.
After leaving the Scream o Ween Ball, we journey to Town Square to catch the Creepa Crew and try to get my first EVER decent photo of the Headless Horseman. We also wanted to see if the internet rumors that meeting Jack and Sally during parades would provide good, or not so good advice for party guests.
