Candy Trails

Newbie to MNSSHP here. What are these "trails" people speak of when talking about trick-or-treating at the party? Are any of them better to see/take than others?

Thanks!

Take them all - you will get a map when you get there - I'm guessing the trail most refer to runs between Storybook Circus and Space Mountain.

Have fun! We love the Halloween party!

The trail running by the Fantasyland train station and Space Mountain gave the best candy in my opinion. Lots of good name brand chocolate. There is also a trail by Splash Mountain but we found that candy to be pretty weak. Lots of suckers and such. We went through each trail a couple of times in a row when there were no lines during the first parade. After the parade; look out! Crowds start piling through.

If you can resist the temptation, hold off on the trails until later in the evening. It takes away a lot time for all the other activities. Plus they usually give away larger hand fulls of candy closer to the end of the party.

So the map will be specific for MNSSHP? Will it show candy trails, character meets, and dance parties? Anything else like the special places for picture opportunities like the hitch hiking ghosts? Did I miss anything?

It's been a few years since we went, but yo'll get a full bag regardless. THey have full bins right at the turnstyles at the end of the night and fill you up as as you leave.

Thanks for the map link! So are the trails decorated or something? Do they get crowded?

Using a certain word brings out a special kind of cray-cray

Both have some decorations befitting their respective themes. The Splash trail has pumpkins carved to some of the Brers, the Storybook one has some Alice-themed props. We did the Alice one near the end of the night, last 40 minutes or so, and it took about 10 minutes all told.
