I'm so glad we bought our tickets for Halloween Night and 10/28 last week!

I haven't been to MNSSHP since 2010. Does anyone think doing it twice is going to be over-kill?
Or was a good a move to go twice so that we're not trying to cram everything in in one night?

I knew 10/31 was going to be crowded, but can anyone offer any ideas as to how crowded it may be compared to a regular/ordinary crowded park day?

Villains’ Sinister Soiree: A Wicked Takeover of Cinderella Castle

Join Lady Tremaine and her villainous friends at the witching hour for the season’s most decadent dessert party. Taking place during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary-Halloween Party, it’s the Villains’ Sinister Soiree: A Wicked Takeover of Cinderella Castle!

Set within the majestic halls of Cinderella’s Royal Table, don’t miss your chance to meet a menagerie of malevolent special guests—all while you indulge in devilish desserts and wicked entertainment.

I would think anything that you could wear to the park on a regular day you can wear to MNSSHP. I saw a woman with those at HS when we went in June. I bought a pair online when we got home.

They're a little on the small side and heavy-ish for the headband, definitely why they have a child in the photo. It's really hard to get it to stay on my head. I need to put my hair back into a tight pony and tuck the sides into my hair to hold it. Even that is not going to last an entire evening. I was thinking of wearing mine but I'm not sure yet.

Oh I wish we could go. Not sure about dropping $400 for a dessert party, though.

I got to say that the idea of paying for a hard ticket event within a hard ticket event rubs me the wrong way. This Soiree makes me worry that I am going to get ripped off for the regular MNSSHP if I don't buy it. It feels like they plan to oversell this, as they did the Villain's Party this weekend, and then when I can't get near a character it will be justified because I didn't spend more money. I'm already dropping about $400 to get my family into the party and now I'm supposed to drop another $500 for preferred seating and desserts. I know this is not something Disney will ever consider, but how about you just not oversell the event so that people don't have to wait 3 hours in line for characters, food or parties? Sigh.

That concerns me, too. This is the first time we've ever been and I ordered my tickets yesterday.

Your concerns are justified...

But I think the dessert party is more "selling ice to Eskimos" by Disney than "planning for crowds"

Remember...they have about 30 of these over two months...and while attendance has increased, the cost scares most away.

I can buy as many tickets as I want for Halloween itself right now (actually considering it as plans may work out).

It's $100 a day for the morning...plus $62-70 for five hours at night...
Just tickets...that's a ton of throw away money for most travelers...even at disney world

I'm going to be honest and say that I'm not exactly understanding what it is that you are trying to say. Just wanted to point out that MNSSHP for Halloween night has been sold out for nearly a week.

Ridiculous, I'll bring my own cupcake, sit on the curb and enjoy the parade for a lot cheaper. Then go over to Shula for a nice steak.

Without a doubt I think this party is a way of dealing with expected crowds. We just saw this weekend that people are very eager to get close to the villains, who are generally rarely out and about. This event gives people who are most eager an opportunity to pay and guarantee they get to meet at least some villains. Of course it is also a cash grab. My main worry about this however is that this event helps bolster the feeling within Disney that they are justified in overselling the event because, if people really want to meet the villains they do have a chance to guarantee they can meet them.

I'm not even going to get into the issue that this party is catering to the wealthy (i.e. for most families this would bring one night's cost to attend in and around the $1000 range) or how this manages customer complaints. As I can only speculate about how this demographic complains about not getting their money's worth relative to any other demographic. But I would guess this will help decrease the complaints of a vocal group when the party ends up too crowded.

We know that Halloween is already sold out. I'd be curious to know exactly how many tickets that means. What is the max capacity for each party and how does that compare to max capacity in previous years.

Has it?

It was available for purchase a
Few days ago.

But even still...if it was for sale on say - August 15 - that is NOT a great amount of advance demand from a Disney perspective.

Many of these dates will more than likely not sell out.
