The Ft Wilderness
Resort has lots of evening activities set up to entertain families, and my
altogether 'mostest favorite' is this one.
The Haunted Hayride
is a ticketed event held during October
Tickets are sold on the day of the
ride at the Ft Wilderness Kennel... and - believe it or not - sell out even
with the amount of effort you have to go to getting them
And it became clear why as the ride proceeded.
We climbed aboard our wagon led by
these beauties and headed into the night. Soon, we were hailed and boarded
by this gent
who began telling
us the tale of Ichabod Crane...
who suprisingly joined us, too! When
we reached a fork in the road, he refused to follow us even though our
'gentleman' admonished him to stay close
The road became very dark with only these small lamps to light our way
We were all VERY
and when we saw the "remains" of
Icabod stuck to a tree...
we got plain
With good reaosn, it seems, because the next thing we knew
Horseman was upon us!
We just "barely"
made our escape; >)
and then our 'gentleman' disappeared
into the mists, and the ride ended... all of us wondering WHAT really
happened. It was a great Halloween ride done Disney style, imho, and I
hope to do it again and again and again!
