Happy Halloween! Reverse Trick-or-Treating again at Disney World! Giving out 350+ bags of candy to Disney Cast Members!

It's Halloween! A day that the Alli and Ian really look forward to, but it might not be the reason that you think. For them, they do like getting candy, but they LOVE giving away candy! Disney World gives us so many good memories, thanks in large part to the amazing cast members. Halloween is a great time for us to give back!

Earlier in the week, we put together an assembly line and filled over 350 bags with Snickers, Reeses, Twix, 100 Grand, and 3 Musketeers. That's a lot of candy! 

Back in April, before we left Florida for a summer of travel, I made a reservation to the Magic Kingdom on October 31st. I know where we're going to be going when we get back! 

When coming up with ideas for costumes, a group costume is always fun! We all love Nightmare Before Christmas and both kids were very happy to be Jack Skellington and Sally. Perfect for handing out candy on Halloween. Even better, Jacob is able to celebrate with us this year! He's opted to be the Mayor, Theresa is Zero, and I'm Sandy Claws Santa Claus!

Halloween Pumpkin Carving and candy prep for Disney

What a beautiful October day here in Florida! It sunny and warm, which is the perfect weather to be outside and carving Halloween pumpkins! And look who is here! Uncle Jacob! We've been carving pumpkins with him for years and he's out here in Florida nearby so he can come carve pumpkins with us!

Tasting the Pumpkin Spice Frosty and Pumpkin Spice Frosty Cream Cold Brew from Wendy's

It's Fall Y'all! That means all the delicious fall treats are back in season, including a new one this year from Wendy's! The Pumpkin Spice Frosty!

Of course we love the Chocolate Frosty, and even the Vanilla. The limited time Strawberry Frosty was okay, but didn't have a strong flavor. Same with the seasonal Peppermint Frosty we tried. Very light on the peppermint flavor. How will the Pumpkin Spice Frosty turn out? We'll try it and see! (sorry kids, I know it's super sunny)

Mystery Mountain Dew 2023 - Mtn Dew VooDew 5

Happy Halloween! 
In what has become an annual tradition, Mountain Dew has released another version of their mystery flavor VooDew! What will 2023 bring? 

In their very first year, 2019, Mountain Dew released VooDew that tasted like Candy Corn

In 2020, VooDew2 was said to be a Fruit Candy Explosion, which was a generic term to mean it was flavored like Skittles

Then 2021 brought VooDew3 flavored like Fruit Candy Chews, so Starbursts.

Last year 2022, VooDew4 tasted like melted Bomb Pops to us, but we found out later it was supposed to be Sour Candy Flavor aka Sour Patch Kids.  

What could this year be? 

It's the same cloudy white color as always, so no hints there.
