Hi everyone!

We went back to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort yesterday to see both the Halloween golf cart parade as well as to enjoy a Halloween version of Mickey’s Backyard BBQ! Our favorite golf cart was the Mad Tea Party from Alice in Wonderland (below, left). The guests said it took them 3 months to build! There were many unique and wonderful entries into the contest, including Peter Pan and Captain Hook (below, right) with a pirate ship – and more characters – behind them.
