Have fun!
Maybe it is simply because she is so very Evil. Have you read the Kingdom Keepers book series? You will find out how evil she really is if you read the books . I can't wait to meet her in all of her Evil glory.

[QUOTE=Turtle31;37324265]



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 !


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.

Ah yes, the 2 hour time change. We are never at morning events, but those night time events are right up our alley!

And an extra suitcase? Do you know how much candy weighs? When we went to the Disneyland party a few years ago we ended up tossing a bunch of candy. We are going to the party on our last night, so may have to bring something to carry it on to the plane. I am not sure I could judge 50 pounds of candy

Last year we were at Disneyland for Halloween but skipped the party so I absolutely can't wait until we go to this party (which I have heard is far superior to the one at Disneyland.

On a side note we'll be traveling from Sept 27-Oct 8....the crowds are smaller than at spring break right? Are they considerably smaller? How are the MNSSHP crowds in Sept.? DH + Large crowds=
Where in Epcot? We will be spending a lot of time there this trip. If I could see her there, then I could see a different character after the Mingle.

Okay so on the extra suitcase thing... My DH travels for business and is a Summit member on Frontier, so we will be bringing 9 suitcases I know, I know..... so much luggage. Not to even mention the laptop carry-on,the kids 2 backpacks filled with crap for plane ride,my rolling duffel with swimsuits and things needed immediatly when we arrive. This will be our seventh Disney trip and everytime I tell myself I will not bring so much crap,but it never happens. We are there for 12 days, and not only do I bring 9 suitcases, I have to borrow from family to make sure we have enough large ones Thank goodness for the magical express. The 50 pound thing... this is where it gets really .... my DH makes me bring the digital scale - there must have been an incident once- but I can't remember it ! He stands on the scale, then grabs the bag, if it is more than 48 pounds I have to shuffle some junk.
Last year, I had to have Disney mail home one of those 80.00 dollar castles and a monorail (for my DH -- NOT my DS ) After all these trips, I would think we should have every souvenior known to man, but they still end up killing me at the giftshop .

DISCLAIMER : Although I am the original poster, for the packing list.. I promise I do not bring everything on it.... If you want to see the maddness... check out the packing list link in my signature.

When to go...

We are going to be there 10/2-10/10. We can either go 10/3-Sunday or 10/7.
Which day is going to be less crowded? We are thinking going on Sunday and not using park tickets for that day since we can get in at 4pm. Ds insist we are going to M&M World

Thanks!

This is our first MNNSHP. We took dd to MMVMCP when I was preg w/ds and it was cold and rainy, but we had a great time even though she missed Belle in her Christmas dress

Hi there! Your plan is exactly what we want to do during MNSSHP. We will see MNSSHP fireworks a couple of nights from the lagoon, so we can skip it but you are right, I too would like to hear the music. I love your site! 2 questions for ya:
1. If you mentioned it, I am sorry I missed it but what night were you going to MNSSHP? I want to be sure to read your report before we go in Oct.
2. You mentioned on your site characters don't sign? So, don't even bother bringing an autograph book and stick to the photopass?
Thank you! Love your pirate league thread!!
Sandy

Only one I know of is in Las Vegas Nevada. And in my mind it is really just a glorified retail store attached to a huge Game-works.
