And Mickey and Minnie do have been different costumes in the parade.
Thank you for the info & for sharing your pics! I am surprised that they rotate costumes - that sort of makes me feel like I will miss out on something, since I will only have time to go through the line once. Oh well! Last year I was there for the pic at 7 pm sharp & they were wearing the purple & orange outfits (the same ones that they sell the plushes of). Hopefully this year I will get the princess/pirate combo - although I plan to go right at 7 again. Plus last year they were separate, and it seems this year they are together (which i like better!!).

Thanks again for the pics - they are fun to get a sneak preview of!!!

Timon and Rafiki

I see on the character list there is Timon and Rafiki. Does anyone know how long those lines have been for them?

Thanks for all the helpful information. This is mine and my husband's first time going to the party!!

I've been and I still have a question for those more knowledgeable on the subject.

I'm wanting to wear a half mask for my costume. Like you know, kitty cat eyes, etc. How strict is the rule on masks and if I wore a half one just over my eyes would that be against any policies?

Thank you lovelies!

Charactors

Does anyone no when the best time to see Mickey & Minnie is during the party. For the Seven Dwarfs would it be possible for one parent to line up at 6:00 or 6:30 to save a place and for the other parent to take a child on rides until about 6:45 or is this frowned on.

I got tickets for October 3, then made my vacation a little earlier, so I can do the October 1 party and use the 3rd to go see Fantasmic. Does anyone know if Disney will let me exchange my tickets for the 3rd for the 1st?

Last year in the area for the carriage which is where the dwarves are now they had a cm manning the line at the gate to check bracelets and there was really no way to get ahead in the line. There was a potty issue ahead of us and they had them leave and return through the exit. For the greets with very regulated lines like this I don't think it would work.

That's what I was hoping to be able to do as well. I was going to get in line 6:15ish and my family was going to do some rides in Fantasyland til it was time for the 7 Dwarfs to come out. During the MVMCP, Beauty and the Beast were in the same spot as the Dwarfs and I saw lots of people join their family in lines. Because the Dwarfs don't sign and they pose for pics quickly, hopefully the line moves fast if my family has to get at the end. <<<fingers crossed>>>

Popcorn buckets

Ok so I am in love with the popcorn buckets from Disney and I especially love the one this year. We use them at our house to put our change in to start saving for the next Disney trip. My question is does anyone know if I can call disney and order one of the halloween ones and get it shipped to my house. We are unable to go to the party this year because I had surgery on my brain stem 4 weeks ago. My son is 14 months and LOVES mickey and we are taking him to the party next year so I wanted one of the halloween buckets so he could start saving his money that his mamaw and papaw are giving him for his trip nesxt year. Right now we are just putting it in his regular piggy bank. I would greatly appreciate any info.

We are going to the party Tuesday!! After reading all the excellent advice here I am actually considering going the 30th as well! We will wait and see how much we get done at the first one, and how our funds are doing... So excited!

15 seconds.

On busy nights... it might push to 5 minutes... might!

I've been to the party for the last three years and have yet to see a line for these two characters, at most I've seen 2 families. It's probably because you can meet them both at DAK and they are not dressed any differently for the party. Also, they are kind of hidden because the Veranda is often ignored, so the lines are never too bad in there.

The line moves fairly quickly for the mice, nothing like the dreaded longs lines from past years.

I think it's fine to have someone hold a spot. A grandmother was holding a spot in front of us for her entire family and we had no problem with that. Since they only take pictures, it doesn't really matter if that picture is with one person or 5, so joining late doesn't really affect the timing (unlike those that sign).

I noticed in the official character line up they had Queen of Hearts listed for a meet and greet after Mix and Mingle and meeting by Tea Cups.


Last year Queen of Hearts and White Rabbit switched places with Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are they doing that this year?

I haven't had time to read through all the posts. I'm trying to help a family of Disney newbies. Can anyone post a list of all the rides and attractions that are open during the party? Thanks!!

I posted this elsewhere but didn't get any real response. Does anyone know why after the villains mix and mingle Maleficent stays behind the rope for her photo? We have a pic of DD with her last year, and we are going to MNSSHP this year with DD as Maleficent (thanks to mom2rtk!). I was just wondering if they would be separated by the rope again and if anyone knew why?

Thanks,
K

I just purchased my tickets for the party this Friday, Oct. 1st. We are driving down for the weekend. Hoping that the party won't be too packed! My question is the lady I spoke to on the phone told me we could not enter the park until 7 with our MNSSHP tickets since we didn't have regular park tickets. I heard we could start entering as early as 4??? Can anyone confirm this??? Thanks.
