Myrna Litt’s 10/9/09 Photo Report

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

DLNT’s own Myrna Litt visited a very crowded Disneyland Resort yesterday, and she reports back to us with these photos:

A look around Big Thunder Ranch Halloween Roundup

Some of the props were moved outside the Ranch itself because of this year’s addition of Big Thunder Barbecue

The stage backdrop is different this year

The awesome menu that Cast Members at Big Thunder Barbecue carry around

Big Thunder Barbecue was full with guests eating with the new lower price, but there was no entertainment while Myrna was there

Some works of the pumpkin carvers

Jack Sparrow and the Pumpkin Quartet!

The master carver himself!

You can never have enough photos of Haunted Mansion Holiday at this time of the year!

Can you spot the difference?

This year’s Gingerbread House

Jack Skellington and Sally wandering around New Orleans Square

The Dapper Dans in their Halloween outfits, along with the Piano Man, at Coke Corner

A special Dapper Dans sign put up while they were performing

Now over to Disney’s California Adventure, where preparation for yesterday evenings’ Mickey’s Trick-or-Treat Party was underway

A special Pumpkin Spice Latte is available…

Along with these other Halloween Treats

Laod Bhang’s Pin Traders has returned to the open area of Paradise Park

Paradise Park appears to be progressing nicely

Scaffolding is now up around the future Silly Symphony Swings

Princess photo-ops in Paradise Pier for Mickey’s Trick-or-Treat Party

Can you spot the Hidden Mickey on the recently painted tower of the Jumpin’ Jellyfish

Light-posts and speakers were recently installed for World of Color

Hopefully Paradise Park will make its scheduled December 18th, 2009 re-opening date

Back over at Disneyland… Regular light-up balloons and Halloween light-up balloons

Here are a few pictures of the nighttime projections on Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy

This almost looks like a hand reaching out

You can see small holes forming as the ghosts attack and make some terrifying noises

I personally love the grid effect

But sadly, Myrna’s day at Disneyland has come to a close

The pumpkins on the turnstiles light up at night

As Myrna was leaving, Mickey’s Trick-or-Treat Party was going on over at DCA

For some reason, during the party they project a cat on the Tower of Terror

Thanks for your report Myrna!
