My notes for this day tells me that Magic Kingdom felt like a very busy park – busier than when we’ve been in August. I don’t know if it was because I was lulled into thinking October would be a lot quieter, or because it was a Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party day. Either way, it was was busy!

Magic Kingdom had their Halloween decorations up, which we have seen before – in late August when they generally start appearing. Since I love Halloween, I really don’t mind! I don’t think I spotted anything different than what I’ve seen before – giant carved pumpkins, pumpkin scarecrows, Mickey pumpkin wreaths, and smaller carved pumpkins above the stores along Main Street USA. Actually, now that I look back through the photographs that I took, I am sure that the garlands hanging from the lights are new to me – I don’t think I have spotted them before.

This part for day 7 is mainly photos, as I don’t have much to add that I haven’t said before in previous trip reports:

Magic Kingdom - Goofy Statue

All visits to Magic Kingdom starts with a walk down Main Street USA. We take our time these days when visiting the Disney Parks, and don’t rush to see and do things – we always plan to return during our visits, and of course, try to visit Orlando as often as we can afford to! Plus this year, my body couldn’t cope with speed, so it was a very chilled holiday overall.

We stopped to take a look in the shops at the Halloween merchandise – not too much different from past years, but some of the jewellery was on sale, so I bought a necklace to match the bracelet I bought on a previous trip.

Magic Kingdom - Cinderella Castle

New for us this year were the additional towers to the sides of Cinderella Castle, as well as seeing the new hub in all its glory. Still some work going on, but not as much as our last visit.

Magic Kingdom - Walt & Mickey Statue

As we approached Cinderella Castle, the show Dream Along With Mickey was just about to get underway.

I ADORE this show, it’s my Disney Life in one performance… little did I know that this would be one of the last times I would ever see it, as it’s now been replaced with another. To say I’m sad about this is an understatement! I fell in love with Dream Along With Mickey in 2011 when we visited Magic Kingdom for the first time, and it has become my anthem for our holidays ever since! I can’t believe I’ll never be able to watch this awesome show live again… but do have the videos we’ve taken, which I never tire of watching!

So here is the last time we ever watched Dream Along With Mickey in October 2015… all the feels, and all the tears!
