Thanks for the info.

I its totally with it would be subjective-whats worth it to one--might not be to another.

My grand daughter and her family are huge halloween people- so for us the halloween party is worth it. We are using this party as our park day.

For us rides will be secondary- except for Haunted Mansion and Pirates of Caribbean (as they fit in our halloween theme. )

They have free face painting. The villians show and hallowishes are MUSTS for us as this is the only time you see such shows.

Costume Question

We are going in mid-September and my son has the Captain Hook costume from the Pirate's League makeover. I'm assuming this will be too hot for him to wear, right? Would it look strange if he wore the hat, shirt, and jacket, but with black shorts instead of the pants?

I think that would be fine!

? ? ? ?



DH and I can't decide whether we should go to the Thurs, 9/30 MNSSHP or the Sunday, 10/2. I know that the W&D Weekend runners get tickets to the 10/2 party, but there's something of an uproar on the events thread about those folks not being able to take advantage of the "free" ticket that's factored into their race registration fee. So I'm not really sure how much that is going to influence the party crowd. Thurs., 9/30 is our first day, so DH isn't sure he'll enjoy it as much after driving 9 hours to WDW.

I just called DVC Member Svcs and they said no event nights (including 10/31) have sold out yet, and Halloween night is always the first to sell out, so that's not a factor.

Any thoughts??

Is anyone who is going early to the party willing to pick me up one? I can describe it. I would be so thankful

the shirt is ONLY available during the party. By the time we get there (Oct 17 this year) supplies are often skimpy. Last year I ended up with a tote bag...which is now pretty cool because I am going to cut the straps off, stuff it andmake it a throw pillow.

That sounds like it's perfectly big enough for us then! Thanks.

Does this mean Jessie and Woody won't be doing autographs/photopass?

Last year Jessie and Woody signed autographs and photopass was available too. Of course, Bullseye doesn't sign, but he is adorable and it's a rare treat to get to see him!

Does anyone have a photo of last year's shirt so we can get an idea of what it looks like.

They did sign last year, but since DH is the rumored Dance Party replacement for the Grotto, characters do not have photopass or sign autographs.

Has anyone been on Halloween?

If anyone has been to MNNSHP on Halloween I would love to hear about it. We are going on the 31st this year.

I know it will be crowded- but are we talking mire than "spring break" crowded?

Thanks!

Thanks so much for letting us know where the new dance party is being held! I wondered where it was moving.
