More Halloween Time at Disneyland
Finally made it to Disneyland early enough in the day to get a fast past to ride Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy. A spooky soundtrack combined with projections of ghosts made the attraction feel quite a bit faster. Fun concept.
We spent some time in the shops and found some 'new' merchandise. Main Street's Disneyana shop had the Snow White fountain - it is from a series where each princess is sitting by a fountain. Snow White's fountain is the wishing well. If I am remembering correctly, it was $75.
There also were a few figures from the Walt Disney Collectors Collection that I hadn't seen before. Snow White about to bite the apple (I don't remember the retail on that) and the Dwarfs on their way home ($999). The Dwarfs are all walking across the fallen log bridge with Dopey lagging behind. It was really quite the piece.
While they are not new, the Hag and Snow White bust by Grand Jester Studio were also in the World of Disney shop for $65 and $60 respectively.
There were two books in the stores that I hadn't seen. Windows on Main Street Discover the Real Stories of the Talented People Featured on the Windows of Main Street, USA by Chuck Snyder and Disneyland Challenge; $6.95 and $12.95 respectively. Both are published by Disney Editions with a D23 logo.
Disney Gift Card had one of the Evil Queen - same logo that is used on the Halloween logos. Not sure if a Hag was available or not. Driving home I spotted several of the billboards for the park that featured that same artwork. Glad to see the Queen and the Hag taking center stage.
