The sky opened up and rained while we were on the tram and
contined off & on. The streets were wet!
-Town Square is all decked out for the fall & Hallowe'en season! Including the Omnibus
-Town Hall and the horse drawn trolley

. He was taking in
the decorations in his own time, as well.
-Here's the horse drawn trolley
it's way up Main Street. (we're waiting in line at this point).
-the decorations viewed toward Town Square
from our location near the camera shop.
Friend Denise came to DLR to hang out with Sean & myself while we
waited. We ended up walking around some, getting Sean coffe and a snack
for ourselves and then we rode the train!

about trick r treating

marching in" (I swear)

with the flowers forming the shape of
-at around 1230 SeanYoda finally got to the
front and was able to purchase a couple of his main street pieces
The sign in front of disneyana were slightly inaccurate, however.. and
they were a bit short-handed but we were glad to get what pieces we
could to add to Sean's growing collection.
(should be other pix from our visit
but they're on Sean's camera I think).
Around 1pm or so we were ready to eat! So we walked over to New
Orleans Square and checked out the decorations and food at French
