That stinks about the carriage! I hope it isn't true.

We are thinking of going November 1st. Has anyone been to the last party before? How were the crowds? Is there a good or slim chance of it selling out?

In my experience, it's typically less crowded at the second parade and even less crowded in Liberty Square or Frontierland.
Three times -- YAY you !! Thanks for tip on the parade in liberty and frontierland - I have added that.

I am really hoping my DH will be willing to wait in line for a couple characters. At least snow white and the 7 dwarfs. We have done deluxe dining on two different 11 day trips so he is spoiled with the kids meeting them at meals and not waiting in any types of lines.

We haven't been to the party in three years, so we can't wait -- I am already busy making costumes! We are going as characters from the web comic When Curiosity Met Insanity (which is in turn based on the Disney Park characters). Hubby will be The Mad Hatter (Reginald Theophilus III), I’ll be an older/adult Alice and DD(8) will be Lorina Theophilus. We are such geeks! It was all DD's idea, I'm just running with it!
Your costumes sound really cute -- I am still trying to decided if I will try and talk DH and DS into dressing up for the party. I hope lots of students benefit from you being in a good mood while grading those papers

Can't wait to hear from other if we will be able to get in before 7pm.
You are very welcome - I think this is something a lot of people will be waiting to hear back on.

I am actually doing something that I hope I don't end up regretting -- We arrive at Disney World at 3:00pm on the 11th, we do not plan on going to a park at all on this day - just relax after the flight from Colorado and enjoy SAB. The next day Oct 12th - my daughter has an 11:00 appt. at BBB so I thought that would be the perfect night to do the party. I kept going back and forth on if we should do the party mid-trip but as we get deeper into the 12 day trip they start dying off So I am hoping the excitment - 2 hour time change and MK will keep them going until midnight - hope I don't regret this choice !

My DD and I are going to go to Pirate League that evening about 5:20pm for a pirate makeover. DH isn't really into the makeover thing so he will wear his pirate hat and whatever else I can talk him into wearing to go with it. Wish me luck on this one?
Anyway - thanks for all the tips and such, I really appreciate it.
Does anyone have pics from previous years by chance? Are the t-shirts pretty cool or are the pics we will take memory enough?
One more question - we aren't going to be able to buy our tickets until after our trip is paid in full. Will we still be able to buy tickets for MNSSHP in early September?
Have a Disney Day, Renee
I will totally wish you luck on getting your DH to dress up -- please do the same for me I will get the link to the previous years photos and link it to the first post very soon. As this is my first party I hope someone else will be able to answer all your questions

So glad to read I am not the only one crazy enough to do the party on our first full day at MK.

I actually removed the tip about Mickey and Minnie being in their houses because I thought I had read a thread about Mickey being evicted from his home because of construction of fantasyland. Is Minnie still in her house do anyone know? I thought the houses were becoming a thing of the past - but maybe it was only temporary. I do think I remember seeing pictures with them both together - but maybe that was DL - I look at so many pictures - my DH says I should try and keep it a surprise to myself - yeah right :rolleyes

One CM gathered up as much as she could in her arms & dumped it in! LOL It was the end of the night, so there's something to be said for that...

We didn't get many pics w/ characters...every line we got on closed, or they went on break, it seemed. We didn't want to waste all that time waiting...I plan on more characters this year.
Funny thing - today my DD (6) asked "Will we have to eat all the candy before we get on the plane to come home ?" Could you even imagine I told her I would bring an extra suitcase and she starts telling me about security at the airport - I then explained the liquid thing (again) - I have to say it is hysterical that at 6 she even knows such things about traveling. I really hope we have better luck with the characters - DH is not fond of waiting to meet characters to begin with.

I think we may see quite a few changes due to construction - but I hope the Cinderella Carriage being gone is not one of them

That would be way cool to be there for it on your b-day. I have never been but I would say from looking at pics - with all the villians and ghoulish goblins your son should enjoy himself -- didn't seem to little kidish to me at all

Can you please adjust the first post to reflect the following character information?

Thank you so much for giving us a correct list from 2009. It is great how you broke it into the lands - loved it. I have replaced the list on the first post with your info. Do you know are Mickey and Minnie's houses still in operation? I wasn't sure of this. And what would be the reason for not having the carriage ? I think this is a huge draw and could really be a let down for a lot of people. So I hope someone heard it from a bus driver

Is there a schedule? Do they come out more than once?

Maybe they'll add it to MVMCP??? A December Disney bound girl can dream, right?????
Don't get your hopes up about the MVMCP because we are hoping and wishing this is untrue

Nov 1st?

I'm thinking of going November 1st but get to WDW Oct 23 so I have a few options....is Nov 1st still fun or are the CM's just glad its almost over? Should I pick another day?

Does anyone know if the fireworks show is the same one shown last year at Disneyland? If it was - that is the BEST fireworks show I have ever seen. On non-paryt nites, do they show the same fireworks or is it exclusive to the party?

We went on Nov 1st a couple years ago and had a blast. The one and only time I went and man did we get the candy. It wasn't too busy IMO... And still had all the feel of Halloween Night!!

We are going September 30th, and we were so happy to read about the Military Discount tickets to MNSSHP! It will save a lot of money!!!

My tip for readers: Florida is hot, even at night. If you wear a lot of fabric over your regular clothes, you might be sweating like a you-know-what! Carefully think out your costumes.

I have read from a few other people who attended on Nov.1st that the party was awesome. The crowd was almost nothing and the candy was plentiful -- I mean at that point what else they going to do but give it away

I watched the halloween fireworks of Disneyland via youtube -- those fireworks were unreal But unfortunatly when I watched the ones posted on youtube of DW there was no big talking moon thing (not sure what to call that) and they did not seem as good to me. I did however read they got awesome feedback at DL so hopefully they will add this to DW (I can Dream !)
On the calendar of events for non-party nights at 9:00 "SpectroMagic" Parade and at 10:00 the fireworks are listed as Wishes™ Nighttime Spectacular. On the days of the party the park closes to guests who are not attending MNSSHP without any parade or fireworks.

No problem!! I know that other list has circulated a lot of threads (for a couple of years), so thank you for taking the time to update the first post!!

The carriage info is very much a rumor, but I'm a person that likes to plan for the worse and prefer to be informed of possible changes. Let's hope it doesn't pan out.

However, Snow and her dwarfs have to move as their former location is blocked by a giant wall. I think the Fantasyland Skyway is a beautiful option (it's the location Snow meets at during MVMCP), but then there is no where for the carriage to go.

As for Toon Town, it's still up and operational and all indicators point to Toon Town staying in place through 2010. Those meet and greets are expected to stay at the houses this year but next year (2011) they will certainly be different.

Joining the list of 1st timers and those who are going on Oct 28th!! Can't wait. We've been to MVMCP and really enjoyed that and have only heard great things about MNSSHP!! I've read/heard elsewhere that the party that has typical sold out in the past is Halloween night and maybe some others close to Halloween or weekends close to Halloween. People who can do trips just for the party will typical do Halloween night or the weekends.

Thanks for creating the thread. Can't wait to start hearing about the first parties!

A big thank you for getting this up and going!! The other thread was intimidating due to the length. I was thinking, how can I ever read all this . Anyway, we are going for our first MNSSHP on 10/24! SO glad to see so many DISers going that night. On the other thread that lists who is going when, there was only one other group last time I checked!

Last year the Snow schedule changed about a couple parties in...

It started with Snow and Dopey at the top of the hour, then they switched to the other 6 dwarfs the bottom of the hour.

A lot of Guests were upset they could not meet all dwarfs and Snow together so then it was changed.

It became Snow and her dwarfs at the bottom of the hour, out for 30 minutes.

Essentially, once they walked out the line was cut. So you could get into line as they were leaving, wait 30 minutes, then catch them again.

My husband and I went last year and had a blast! It rained after the fireworks, but we just dug out ponchos and finished out the night, and it was empty by midnight, so we rode everything we wanted, although the characters were hard to find as the rain kept them in corners. Don't forget to hit the Haunted Mansion early in the night- Madame Leona comes out and interacts with guests- it's hysterical!

This year, I get to go twice- once on October 1 with my mom (we're getting matching T-shirts from Zazzle that we're designing) and then again with my husband on October 26. We haven't figured out what we're dressing up as. We'll be in the World for Halloween, but it's a madhouse that night, and we have ressies for the Haunted Carriage ride instead...

This is going to be our first MNSSHP and only our 2nd trip to WDW! I am so excited! Our MNSSHP is Sept. 21st! I am really looking forward to meeting Snow White w/ all 7 dwarfs. What time should we get in line for her first meeting of the night? Also, do they have photopass photographers where Snow White and the 7 dwarfs are?
