Watched the parade (2nd one) across from LTT area, and we were right at the ropes. hallowishes was awesome. walked onto MOST rides. Love how you can feel the excitement in the air!

I'm planning on going to the 1st party on the 14th so....Not sure if this question has been asked and answered but how will I know that we can enter the gate at 4:00pm. Will I be able to call and find out the day or morning before? Or will I not find out until I get to the gate at 4:00pm and I'm let in or turned away? I don't like the unknown...it scares me lol.

It says on booking website that you can enter park at four. I think they give you a wrist band so you don't have to leave when park closes

Ok, I think we are going on the 28th, and joy of joys my Grandma and Aunt are going to come along. They will be visiting the World while we are there, and while they won't have regular park tickets they felt this would be a better bargain for the evening plus they get to see the kiddos trick or treat and the parade.

I'm planning a trip for 2011 but I'm so excited already that I can't stop thinking about it. I do need some advice and clarification, though, if anyone could help?

1) What's all this talk about "wristbands"? DH and I have never done a Disney special event. Are you escorted from the park after a certain time unless you have one? How do you get one on the day?

2) I know WDW has rules on costumes. Starting at what time on a MNSSHP day are you allowed to don a costume?

3) We may not be able to go around this time for a while again. Should we pick up tickets for more than one day so we can really see everything, or do you think one night is enough?

4) I'm counting on being around from a Wednesday night to a Sunday morning at least. Is there one day that's better than another in October (for instance should I shoot for a Tuesday)?

5) I noticed another post here that I thought implied that you can't purchase MNSSHP tickets until you have paid in full for park tickets? Did I read too much into this?

Thanks! I just love planning our vacations, and this event sounds so awesome! My lack of knowledge has been driving me nuts!

1) After 4 PM you will get your wristband as you enter the park. If you are already in the park, there will be a sign in front of the castle directing you where to go to get them.

2) It may not be hard and fast. You should be fine after 4.

3) It is almost impossible to do it all in one night. If you want to do it all, 2 nights is great. We did this, and I was able to relax knowing I had extra time to fit it all in. So for us, it was a great approach.

4) Friday and Saturday nights are the busiest. The rest is a tossup.

5) I've never heard this and it's not true.

in order to be in the park for the party, you have to have a wristband. Cm's will clear out the park by flushing anyone without a wristband toward the front of the park. The wristband will be a different color for each party night of the week.

2) i know wdw has rules on costumes. Starting at what time on a mnsshp day are you allowed to don a costume?

i believe at 4, but i'm not entirely sure. When i was a cm, i saw people enter at 4 in costume on party nights.

3) we may not be able to go around this time for a while again. Should we pick up tickets for more than one day so we can really see everything, or do you think one night is enough?

well, i'm going three times, so you may not want to listen to me But i really don't think you can do it all in one night, though. There's just so much to do and see, even discounting the rides.

4) i'm counting on being around from a wednesday night to a sunday morning at least. Is there one day that's better than another in october (for instance should i shoot for a tuesday)?

i think they're all great

5) i noticed another post here that i thought implied that you can't purchase mnsshp tickets until you have paid in full for park tickets? Did i read too much into this?

i know people who are locals and don't have regular park tickets, but buy party tickets. I haven't paid in full for my package yet, but i've bought two of my three party tickets.

thanks! I just love planning our vacations, and this event sounds so awesome! My lack of knowledge has been driving me nuts!
hth!

I guess I read too much into something (or just read it plain wrong) but it's good to know there's not pre-req or anything to buying a MNSSHP ticket early! Thank you both so much for all the information! This will help me plan even MORE madness!

mom2rtk> Is that your daughter in the picture? She's adorable! If only I were still that tiny and cute. *sigh*

DisneyFirefly> Three nights? I'm pretty jealous. I'd shoot for the same if I thought the DH and I could get enough days off.

Thanks again! <3

Planning the madness is fun That's what these boards are here for, to help people plan

And, well, I'm going for a week on a solo trip. The first two party nights, I'm meeting up with other Disers and then on the third, I'm gonna try and meet up with old coworkers. My work schedule's a little crazy, so the way that my vacation days worked with my schedule, I actually have twelve days off

Have a great time at the parties!

Awwww.... many thanks! Yes, that's my daughter and Disney buddy! We did MNSSHP last year and are going back in December for this year's trip. So we'll be doing MVMCP again.

Have a ball at MNSSHP! I'm sure we'll be back some day for that one.... once I forget how hot it was last year when we went....... But after age 10, they really aren't supposed to wear costumes in the parks, so I'm sure MNSSHP will be come a favorite of ours for costume fun!

I actually think 3 parties is about what it takes to do it all. We did MVMCP twice in 08, but still missed a few things. Same thing with MNSSHP last year. We did a total of 3 Pirate & Princess parties in 07-08 between 3 separate trips. By the end of the last party, I finally felt like I had seen it all.

For all you awesome people who are attending the party on 9/14, how soon will you be able to post pics, or at the very least tell us about new meet and greets? We are leaving 9/20 and would love to be in the know for our party on 9/21. Thanks so much in advance!!
