Could it have been that the early parade went from Frontierland to Main St and then just did the parade in reverse? I'm sure you know from working there how it is handled now. They always keep us guessing LOL

I'm definitely a walking information desk when it comes to MK

Well, I worked there in 2008, and I've heard that it was the same in 2009, so it would make sense to me that they'd do the same in 2010. I honestly have no clue how it was handled in years prior, as I only worked at MK from May 2008 to January 2009. Every video I've seen of the 2009 parties had it going Frontierland to Main Street, though. We'll find out for sure when the parties start.

Does it make a difference where the parade starts and ends?

Well, if it starts at 8:15 in Frontierland, it won't get to the Town Hall end of Main Street for about 20 minutes, at which point it is already DONE where it started....so depending on what else you want to do when, it CAN make a difference.

Hi all,
I have a weather question. What if you buy tickets for a certain night and it rains? Do they refund your money? Do they still have some of the party?
Hope this hasn't been asked...thanks guys!

I'm wondering the same thing. I'm about to buy our tickets next month.

Since no-one else has chimed in, here is what I have gleaned about this...

100 % Sure of this:
- The party won't be canceled because of rain.(Exception would I suppose be a hurricane hitting central FL that closes all the parks.)
- Some events during the party (fireworks / parade) can be cancelled if it rains badly enough (like monsoon levels), but that doesn't mean you get a refund.


NOT 100% sure of this:
-I have read here on the boards that if you decide you don't want to go to the party due to weather, you can go to guest services BEFORE you enter the park and exchange your tickets for a different night (if they are still available on the given night you want). From what I understood, you can't get a refund, only exchange.
- Once you enter the party, you cannot get a rain-check for the night, no matter how bad it rains.

Can anyone out there confirm the last bits for me?

Hi,
Does anyone know - is it true that in the Villain's mix and mingel show before the Parade that they don't mingle?

Just that I was thinking of watching that show and then keep the same spot for the Parade but maybe not if this is the case?

Thanks!

They were doing some mingling after the show when we were there last year. It was right in front of the castle and they came down off the stage afterward. I'm not sure how long they mingled.
