Going to Disneyland the day after Halloween has become a tradition for my son and me, and we usually end up meeting a few of our friends there, since it’s a no school day here in NB. November 1st is also “Día de los Muertos”, so we were in for an extra special Disney version of this holiday. Día de los Muertos is an annual Mexican celebration that remembers loved ones that have passed, while embracing an eternal connection. The colorful tribute is located in Frontierland right next to the Rancho del Zocalo Restaurant. Another HUGE attraction yesterday was the Haunted Mansion. Right now the Haunted Mansion is in holiday mode, which means Jack Skellington, from Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas hosts an extra special version of this Disneyalnd classic.

This cafe in New Orlean's Square is one of my favorite spots.
They've even got some Christmas decorations up!
The entrance of the park looked great too!
Our last ride of the day was floating through Storybook Land on a little canal boat. It’s a special little tour of miniature versions the adorable homes and villages from classic Disney movies. At the top of the hill is Cinderella's castle where she lost her glass slipper. Can you spot the pumpkin half-way down the hill? It was left on the road after the magic spell was broken at midnight!
And here I am with my friend Catherine on the Buzz Lightyear ride. Someone was busy chatting and didn’t pay attention during the shooting gallery game!
