Mom and I had the CRAZIEST run in with Push the talking trashcan. I haven't seen Push in action since I was like 14 so this was a huge deal for me. I whipped out my camera and video taped him talking to guests. Only, about 20 seconds after getting my camera out Push came right over and started talking to me. I have a video of him and I having a 5 minute conversation. Seriously was the best moment of the day.
Space Mountain was closed down for refurbishment at the time but they had just opened Tomorrowland Transit Authority to guests again so we rode that. Mom and I were able to see the inside of Space Mountain with the lights on. It just looked like a gray warehouse with a coaster inside.
After Tomorrowland we went and had lots of fun in Adventureland and Frontierland. Ran into Cowboy Goofy which was just adorable. I told Goofy that I have a crush on his son, Max. True story. Before leaving Magic Kingdom we stopped and got some ice cream. Mom got vanilla & chocolate and I got the amazing raspberry sorbet. Yummy in the tummy.
We went back to Pop Century to get around for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party later. After some down time and primping at the resort we went to Epcot for dinner. We had to do some rearranging with dinner because we decided to attend the Halloween Party that night. Had to cancel our previous reservation and the only thing that was available at the right time was Biergarten. I had a bad previous experience when I was 17 at Biergarten. Just didn't care for it other than the sweet German music.
We were seated at the back of the restaurant with this stuffy ass family from North Dakota. In order to make it through what I was already expecting to be an awful dinner, I ordered an Oktoberfest. Biergarten's speciality beer. Oh good Lord folks... I could have drank that stuff 'till the cows came home. Mom and I went up to the buffet and immediately started whispering to each other "What is that? It looks weird and has a German name." We decided to go balls out and just pile stuff onto our plates even if we weren't sure what it was. If it didn't have meat in it, I tried it. There were actually more options for vegetarians than I had expected. I was shocked! After sitting down and taking a few bites... I was in heaven!!! I take back everything bad I ever said about this restaurant. The salad was killer and so was the red cabbage. All around i'd say Biergarten is now a "don't miss" for me at WDW. Yay!
The rest of the night was spent meeting more characters along some "haunted" trails, watching the Villains show in front of Cinderella Castle, and enjoying the Halloween parade and fireworks. While I really liked the events going on, it just seemed really crowded because everyone was in the same spot at the same time. People weren't really spread out enough. I'm glad I did it once and i'd probably do it again but not for a few more trips. I'd also dress up more.
We could have stayed in the park longer but we had to get to bed at a decent time because I needed a good nights sleep. I had a big day ahead of me... American Idol Experience!
