I want to wait to buy tickets when we get closer to see what the weather is like. But my dh is upset that we haven't bought tickets yet. We're going the week of the 16th so I doubt they'll sell out. I can't decide, maybe it's worth buying them now to make sure dh doesn't loose his mind worrying about missing the party!

What do most of you do? Buy now or wait?

I would buy now - you won't know what the weather is until the day before - and even that is a little flakey sometimes. Long range forecasting is not reliable. I bought mine and keep my fingers crossed - you can go to guest services and change the date if there is a problem - before the party that is. I think they might give refunds for total washouts, but not if you can do most everything except see the parade and fireworks because of the weather.

If we're not dressed up, can we still trick or treat?

TIA!!!

I have to agree about the weather. In Feb we were in Orlando and every day the weather channel would say one thing and the weather would do something completely different. We bought ours already and will just keep our fingers crossed as well.

Thank you. I bought the tickets. The CM told me they were non-transferable so we'll cross our fingers! I feel fortunate we are able to go. Definitely not something we'll be able to do every time we visit Disney. it's certainly a lot of money but I'm excited to see the kids trick o treat Disney style .

That is AWESOME! DD was Yoda last year. Wish we'd thought of the "Dagobah Luke"! Have fun!

53 days here and eagerly awaiting reports from the first party!

I'm still working on our costumes. We're going as the Flynn-Fletchers. I've got to dye a pair of shorts purple for DH and I need to find a yellow sweatervest. The kid's outfits are all set. I even found a pair of Phineas shoes for DS!

We can't wait!

You certainly can! DH was not in a costume last year, but still collected a fair bit of candy.

72 days for us. DGF - DS and myself it is counting down.
48 days until DS learns he is going to WDW for his first time. Birthday Surprise.

Man, the suspense is a killer.

Good to know, because there is no way that DH will dress up and DS said he wouldn't up until yesterday, but after reading this thread he started talking like he might. We'll see, but I wasn't going to dress up by myself!
