We were at the party on September 28th. It was awesome. The weather was AWFUL all day but at 7 on the dot it cleared up and we were able to take our ponchos off. I will post pics as soon as I can get them up.

We did not see the headless horseman that night. We thought maybe we just missed him but I heard a lot of people around the park asking about him so maybe he didn't ride b/c of how wet the ground was?

Oh my! I had never planned on getting the popcorn bucket until you showed the picture. That is absolutely adorable and a total must for me!

He rode the 2nd parade. 1st one was too wet.

We are going on our trip this year, just trying to decide on what date to pick. I think we are going with Tuesday Oct 19th.

We are taking our DD6 as a surprise. Not sure what myself and the wife will be dressed up as, but we are always looking for something new to do at WDW, and since we have never done this event - we are pretty psyched!

Here is our plan - let us know if it makes sense :

1. Get there @ 4:00 and do some rides. I know the park will still have many people there with the day pass, but thought this would give us time to get a few rides in early
2. We wont do much trick or treating. Our DD6 is not big on candy (really), so I am sure we will hit a few spots.
3. Not sure what characters she really wants to see, we will have to figure that out
4. Definitely the late parade
5. Good spot for the fireworks

I think that is about all we really want out of the evening. Looking forward to this - sounds like a blast

Thanks for all the tips, I have plenty of reading before the trip

1. That was our plan. We were delayed an hour due to rain, I was so worried they'd call it with the lightening (9/28). We got everything done that we planned to.
2. Neither did we. I think we hit up 3-4 spots and still had enough candy for both kids.
3. Do you have the list??? If not, I can help.
4. We did parade #2, showed up 20 minutes before and sat right in front of the castle, front row.
5. You shouldn't have trouble here either.

Im going ON Halloween. Do you think getting there at 5 would be too late...would the line already be really long to get in? Or would that be okay?

We were at the MK two years ago on Halloween when people were coming in for the party -- we were leaving to trick or treat at the Fort - and there was a steady stream of partygoers coming in on Main Street! We sat for awhile on the curb and watched folks come by in their costumes. I would say you will be fine coming in at 5pm, there will be people in line but it shouldn't be too bad as you will be plenty early, have fun!

We need to make sure our DD2 gets a nap before the party so we're not going to make it to MK until at least 5:30pm...maybe closer to 6pm. We're going to be up early for our 8:15am ADR at CM and then we're going to tour CR for a little bit and try to get back to the resort around 11am or noon for naps and to get ready for MNSSHP. I hope we can get her napping on time and then up on time to get to the party. We're going on the 31st! I can't wait!

If we get there around 5ish we're going to spend most of our time at Adventurland and Liberty Square...we have an ADR for LTT at 6:50pm which I may cancel because it's just too close to party time and we take a long time to eat. I'm not able to get anything earlier unfortunately so we may just have to do CS for dinner. *shrugz*

I would cancel, and just eat CS. I would not want to spend that much to go to the party, and then spend that time eating.

I just returned from the party on October 3 and had a great time! The lines for the characters were long all night, but the ride lines were super short. One of the highlights that I have not seen mentioned in this thread is Cruella deVil. She is hilariously funny while she is taking photos after the Villians Mix and Mingle. People were just standing listening to her commentary.

One question, what is the name of the character at the Haunted Mansion who sits on a bench and heckles the people entering the ride? She was also very funny!

Did anyone see Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen at the party anywhere?

I was at the Studios that day. That storm was horrible.
