Do very many adults dress up for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

This is our first trip for the Halloween Party and it's three adults no kids. We're wondering if it's mostly for kids or do adults really dress up too?

I dressed up last year and will be doing so again this year. We are four adults and no kids and love MNSSHP and the fact that you are not out of place as a costumed adult only group. I got so much candy and the greatest balloon hat because of my efforts.

I was at 9/14 and 9/21 last year and will be at 9/16 this year. I saw plenty of adult only couples/groups that wore costumes even in September. Dress up and have a fab time.

Dressing up is the part that I'm looking forward to. I have even convinced BF to dress up and he doesn't really do things like that

I have never been to MNSSHP before, but having read some other reports etc i feel quite reassured that we (bf and myself) won't be out of place.

We dress up, we go without the kids to WDW each year for MNSSHP since they're all grown up and on their own. In fact if the grown kids go with us they don't want to dress up because "we" embarass them.

I've seen tons of adults in GREAT costumes. Cinderellas with Prince Charmings, some Donald Duck dads, the whole Peter Pan clan...

I sure hope so because I am! Long strapless red ball gown with a diamond tiara and earrings. I'll finally get to be a princess (did I mention I'm 44..ha!)

Wish I could find a comfy pair of shoes to go with the dress. I thought about my red crocs.

I'll be at MNSSHP Sept 9. It'll be my first and I'm soo excited!

My DBf and I went last year and dressed up.....it was awesome !!!!!! We had a blast. Walking around in costume, adds to the "excitement" of the evening.

GO FOR IT !!!!

I wore my ruby slippers (shoes that I covered in red glitter) for as long as I could atand and then changed into my red mary jane crocs. I say where your crocs if you want to, especially if you will have a more enjoyable evening.

I bet you'll look just as stunning as (if not more so than) any of the Disney princesses! rincess:
