On its special Halloween nights, Disney allows certain special characters out in the parks, Maleficent being one of them. Since I was cosplaying Riku, this photo was mandatory.
All I could think of was: “Come with me. I’ll help you find what you’re searching for.”
We also had a brief conversation:
Maleficent: Wearing my favorite color, I see…”
Me: Just for your Maleficent.
This is one of the many photos from the trip that inspired the Magic Kingdom Hearts event: http://www.magickingdomhearts.com/
