Happy Haunts Ball

Last night, Natasha and I attended the 3rd annual Happy Haunts Ball at the Magic Kingdom, thanks to our friends Tabby and Johnny. What a fun event and a perfect evening for it, thanks to the eclipse of the moon! Spooky!

Happy Haunts is a fun-filled event for pin-traders held every year around Halloween. The event celebrates the Haunted Mansion and all things spooky. Guests at the event got a wonderful buffet dinner, spooky attractions, fortune tellers, wine and other spirits, all in a silly, scary, fun atmosphere where they’re surrounded by zombies, ghosts, and other creatures of the night!

The night was horrifyingly enjoyable! Check out the pictures in the gallery, or, for those of you with more bravery, download the frightful video I posted here (YouTube link).

Guild Wars Preview Event

For those of you nutty enough to like MMORGs, check out the Guild Wars preview event coming up. Guild Wars is a fast-action MMORG in the vein of Blizzard’s Diablo series of games. As I understand it, it was crafted by some of the folks who used to run BattleNet for Blizzard, and it shows in the excellent quality of the game.

I got to play in the early beta during E3 and really was wowed at how good the game was then. Given the months since May, I bet the game will be even better now. So jump out, pick up the client and give it a try during the beta.

New Stitch Game on Disney.com

There’s a new Stitch game out on Disney.com!

The WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort web site has posted a new Stitch game to promote the opening of the “Stitch’s Great Escape” attraction, coming very soon to the Magic Kingdom®. The game is sorta corny, but very funny, and if you love Stitch as much as I do, you’ll enjoy playing it.

What’s really kewl is, if you play the game and print out the thing you get at the end, you can take the print-out to the Magic Kingdom with you to get a special Stitch sticker!

The game also installs one of the little pet Stitch onscreen toy thingies like the one that they had for the movie.

Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

Today, Natasha and I went to the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.

The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival (I keep almost writing “Food and Wind” and with all that great food you can certainly get a bad case of wind…but anyway….) is a great way to enjoy the international flavors of Epcot with food from all the countries represented there, as well as food from other nations as well. The food was really, really yummy, and professionally prepared. It was so good, I had to take some pictures of it. Enjoy! And try not to salivate on the keyboard.
