Disneyland Halloween 2017

IMG_0457.jpgMy tradition of going to Disney at Halloween continued this year with an extra special trip in that I went with my Mother. We both like to vacation the same way and it had been a very, very long time since I went anywhere with her like this. Despite fears of the fires in California the trip turned out to be exactly what I wanted it to be, magical.

However, I do have concerns when it pertains to Disneyland (I tend to just lump California Adventure into “More Disneyland”) given the ever growing crowds. I made sure this year to avoid any special days, be far enough away from Halloween itself and it was still much busier than in 2015. I mean a lot busier.

What exactly can Disneyland do about this though? Star Wars Land is coming to Disneyland late 2018 possibly and that is going to be a complete mad house. Think of how busy Cars Land still is and then think of Star Wars having a larger appeal. The park was never designed for this many people and given how boxed in they are I’m not sure what they can even possibly do about it.

I have been obsessed with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild unlike I have since the early days of World of Warcraft. This is an open world game done right and when it comes to DLC they also know how to do it right. The game itself is complete, you get a full story if you choose not to buy the DLC.

EA suckered me into buying the first Star Wars: Battlefront but I’m not going to get involved with the second one. I’m doing my best to step away from any game which has a micro-transaction or “pay to finish the game” DLC.

How did I take the screenshot? (Wii-U version)

I use a service called postimg.org which makes it easy to screen capture from the Wii-U and send them to your computer. All you need to do is press the Home button, then click the Internet Browser (the globe) and go to https://postimg.org.

From there you can easily capture the image from your Wii-U. If you sign up on the site you can post directly to Facebook or copy the URL onto your computer.
