The MK is completely decorated for Halloween that last week of August anyway! We would never go for Halloween time, maybe Christmas so I feel this is a two for one deal
Is it always decorated for Halloween?! When we left on the 22nd of August last year some Halloween merch was out but none of the decorations were up. Just having the decorations up would be exciting!

We've been to WDW during that week a few times, as it is our normal vacation week (this year, it's a cruise on the Fantasy ). The beginning of the week, there would be no decorations yet in MK. By the end of the week, there would be a lot of Halloween decorations up already. I supppose it's entirely possible that they could move the decorating schedule up a few days and start MNSSHP a couple of weeks earlier. If it is the case, I'm not sure how I feel about a Halloween party in August. Although, if true, it would give us the opportunity to try out the party, which really wasn't possible before.

I think what you meant to say is it's never to early to squeeze in a couple extra money grabs

This could happen.

1) Josh is pretty darn reliable.

2) They have just announced earlier this week that Food & Wine will be extended an extra week to November 10 which lets it overlap with the first Christmas Parties. Here.

3) They announced today (?) that Star Wars Weekends will go an extra week (and also there will be no Hyperspace Hoopla show). Here.

Oh, I agree. Definitely a money grab!

But it's one money grab my Halloween loving family who can only travel to Disney in August would happily pay for.

I'm not sure why they are closing the MK those dates early but I doubt it is for parade practice. In 2011 my DD had the opportunity, while in the DCP, to be in the MNSSHP & the practices were always held after the park closed at their normal time. The practices often started after MN. It did indeed make for a long night!

One quick thing, the end date for F&W is normal, they extended the festival at the start (Sept. 19 instead of Sept. 26).

I would be pretty excited...and I would definitely buy a ticket. We are scheduled for Animal Kingdom right now but would do this party in a heartbeat. We were originally scheduled to go in September but it changed and I was upset over missing this party. Fingers crossed!!

Take my money..I am more than happy to attend! I think I am more excited because it's on my birthday. One thing I was wondering if they would announce the dates earlier than the end of April/Beginning of May time. We need to plan!

I just checked park hours and now September 1st is also showing up as MK closing at 7 pm. It sure looks like MNSSHP is starting a week early this year.

I hope it's MNSSHP...

I changed our proposed schedule have us at MK that day. We used to go in Sept and did MNSSHP for a few years in a row-loved it! Started going in Aug so DD11 won't miss school, but we do miss the party! Also would be great to not have to buy regular tickets for that day, just rest and go later with the party tickets....
