Over the past few years, we’ve been able to share a number of adventures with Root Photography blog stars Carrie and Patrick. Last October when they invited us to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, I knew it was going to be like no other MNSSHP I’d attended in the past! I was right.

The Magic Kingdom looks glorious in the fall. :)

Nope, that’s not a Disney character…

… It’s my Carrie. I mean… The late Constance Hatchaway. Constance resides in the Haunted Mansion along with 998 happy haunts (But there’s room for 1000- Any volunteers?) We spent the evening with her and her most recent husband/ victim…

Harrison Hightower! If you’re like me and haven’t been to Tokyo Disneyland, Harrison is who the Tower of Terror there is centered around. He’s an explorer, and the little green guy is Shiriki Utundu, an idol Harrison brought back from Africa.  Patrick made this costume (as well as Shiriki!), and the costume was so believable, guests thought he and Carrie were Disney Cast Members. :)

This is seriously just a small handful of all the guests (and Cast Members) that posed for photos with Constance and Harrison. A crowd actually formed around them in the photo on the bottom left of the collage- They just stood around waiting for a show, and of course, Patrick/Harrison happily obliged. :)


I’m constantly trying to convince friends to go to Not-So-Scary… I think it’s worth the admission just for the parade- It’s my all time favorite. :)

I don’t know what I love more- The Headless Horseman or Haunted Mansion dancers and grave yard diggers!

  1. We had SO much fun at MNSSHP with you guys—it wouldn’t have been half as cool without you. Thanks so much for showing us the ropes!

  3. We actually saw Carrie & Patrick leaving the Beach Club that night! Patrick’s costume was outstanding. And I agree about the Boo to You Parade being worth the price of admission to the Halloween Party :D The grave diggers are my favorite part, closely followed by the Headless Horseman!

  7. Jensey-we are long lost BFF’s. I am convinced. We love all the same things about Disney. Carrie and Patrick-your costumes are OUTSTANDING. Since I looooove Haunted Mansion, I may just have to borrow the Constance idea for next year…may I borrow your costume? =)
