You only need the TOT party tickets at the park for the Halloween party, they're not linked to your entry ticket, regardless if it's AP or not.

But tickets never sold out before the general sale opened (at least not since I am going), so no need to be afraid.

Yes, the park closes early for TOT.

We were there Halloween weekend last year and it was a lot quieter than the previous weekends. It wasn't "dead" but very manageable (and the weather was beautiful!). The only things that will remove their overlay between Halloween and Xmas is Space Mountain (only closed for a day, monday after Halloween weekend last year) and Big Thunder Ranch to switch from Halloween to Xmas. Small World will be down your dates to add the Xmas overlay (it usually goes down that week before Halloween).

I really am enjoying this thread so many great ideas and pictures! Can't wait to see the diferences between WDW and DL! I have not been to DL since my 20s!!!
It wasn't crowded last year, busy yes, but we got almost all of both parks done in less than 3 days including the TOT party. I'd guess the party will be on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights of Halloween weekend.

I think if we are able, we want to do the MTOT twice in this trip if we can, depending. It is half the cost of the MNSSHP.. and since the park closes early for the TOT (right?) I am guessing it has to be worth it.

Oh yes please!! The tour looks really really awesome. Pictures would be very helpful since it costs more than the MTOT!
Halloween didn't sell out until mid-late September last year I believe. And there is no AP discount (or buy ahead discount) for parties on Halloween weekend. It is definitely worth it and we are hoping to go again this year.

Does DCA do the TOT party more than once during the season?

Please forgive me if this has been answered in the thread...

WDW Halloween parties run from 7-12pm. You are allowed to enter the part at 4pm though. Does DL allow the same?

If I recall correctly (although I did not attend the TOTP at DLR last year, but I went in 2008), the TOTP started (in DCA) at 7:30 p.m. and ran until 11:00 or so...maybe midnight. I don't remember what time it ended because we didn't stay until closing, but I didn't think it was midnight, although it could be.

In any case, DCA shuts down to the general public at around 6 p.m., I think. Then they do the quick transformation for the TOTP party and then it reopens to the TOTP ticket holders at 7:30 (at least, that's what happened in 2008).

No one is sure yet what will happen this year with the TOTP hours/schedule, as World of Color is opening soon, and I would think that Disney would want as many folks to see that as possible in its early months. If they shut down DCA for the TOTP on the usual designated nights, I am not sure if they would run WoC specifically for the TOTP guests only, or just not run it at all on party nights.

Yep. It generally runs at least 2 nights a week all through October. Based on the previous patterns, this year it should begin on Friday, October 1. Then, the following week it would run on Thursday and Friday. And then the week after that, it would run on Wed., Thursday & Friday. And I would imagine that they will have the TOTP going on Halloween night, which is a Sunday, as well as the Friday before it. Maybe even that Saturday the 30th too. We should find out the complete TOTP & Halloweentime schedule in June or July.

I've learned to NOT stand in line and wait for it to start lol. This year I'm gonna take my time walking across the esplanade since you have to wait for the rope drop after you wait in line and finally get inside.

Thought I would share some pics from the TOTP of 08. You guys were soo helpful when I planned that trip and I never got around to writing a trip report...so this will be my contribution. I am planning for another trip the last week of Sept...getting excited and I hope the Halloween stuff is up!! Then I will post more pics of the decorations this year!!! Although probably not going to the TOTP again









I am sure I have more of just Halloween decorations at DL...if I find that file I will post more

Please forgive me if this has already been answered. I have glanced through this thread (will read in lots of detail this weekend!).

I am from New Zealand and we don't really celebrate Halloween but I am really excited to see what it is all about. We will be in DLR from October 4-8 (arrive in Anaheim October 3 following our cruise and fly out October 8). If, from what everyone has posted, the dates work out, I am hoping we could do a party on Thursday October 7. I just wondered what you actually got for the ticket price and approx. how much would the ticket be?

It depends on the day. Some days have 6.30 to 11 PM openings, other times the party is 7.30 to midnight.

Different dates had different prices last year. The tickets for Halloween itsself were most expensive, those were $ 42 - and unfortunately that's the only price I remember.

What you got for the ticket price... trick or treating, a character cavalcade, photo stops with rare characters... I think the photos on here give a pretty good impression of what to expect. A picture says more than 1000 words, and we do have lots of them. LOL

Thanks for the information.

I'm thinking we could go late Monday, October 18th and stay until Friday morning. Then we would have full park days Tues and Wed at DL. Then do DCA on Thursday with the TOTP.

Would this be the best week to go in October? TIA
