I think I will have to do that. I don't want to miss the start of the party. And yep, we paid for the tickets and it would be a waste.

I would have freaked. Glad they didn't hear..

So if I happen to get there and am the first person, where should I start the line? Do I wait by one of the two entrances, or the back wall?

Quick question - I read that Disney does not allow guests to wear costumes in the park except on the Party nights, so will they let you in the park in a costume if you arrive before the party starts i.e. before 7pm?
Thanks,
Matthew

they came out at 12:30- we were second in line with a 5 minute wait.
Heading into Adventureland-- ariel is there meeting with her Prince but around.
If you see Ariel-- you walked to far-- go back and turn left and Tiana and Naveen will be right there (unless it rains then they move elsewhere

We are unable to go to the party this year because I had surgery on my brain stem 4 weeks ago. My son is 14 months and LOVES mickey and we are taking him to the party next year so I wanted one of the halloween buckets so he could start saving his money that his mamaw and papaw are giving him for his trip nesxt year. Right now we are just putting it in his regular piggy bank. I would greatly appreciate any info.
Send me a message with your address and I will pick up one for you when we go to the party.

I hope you are okay. I am looking at having my pituitary gland out because of a tumor, but will not have surgery until after our trip. I will be taking pain killers while there, but plan on having a fantastic trip.

Put it in your suitcase and fill it with clothing to protect it! It will be safe. That's how I plan on bringing mine home and I have a lot of experience with that.

Got a ?

When you go get your wristbands for the party, do you just give them-in my case the cards? You don't have to give them the paper they came with or do you?

3. Do you have the list??? If not, I can help.
4. We did parade #2, showed up 20 minutes before and sat right in front of the castle, front row.
5. You shouldn't have trouble here either.
My wife booked it today, we will be going on the 19th, I am really excited about this. Now I have to figure out what I want to wear as a costume (something light in case it is hot).

I would love to get the list if you can help me with that, thank you so much for offering!!!

One more question for everyone.

Do you still plan a regular day at MK? (I know this is everyone's personal opinion). My thinking was if we get there at 4:00, I was hoping we could get the rides in while making sure to catch the parade, headless horseman, a character pic or two, and like I said, a few stops to trick or treat but not much.

If we dont get to hit the rides we want, I am sure we will head back for another full day at MK, but I am being a little selfish with this one I would actually like to do 2 days in EPCOT for the F&W Fest (and see two different bands). I just love the F&W fest, it is my absolute favorite event at WDW. I was hoping I could convince the family we should do 2 days there, but we will see.

Thanks everyone - we are really looking forward to MNSSHP, all the tips will certainly come in handy

You can get in at 4 in costume but your costume may be to warm for that long in the humidity. Mine was getting destroyed so I took it off and got back into shorts and t-shirt til I was lining up for the dwarves at 6.30

I don't know about when you're in the park already but if you're going at 4 they have a seperate entrance for people going to the party and when you go through the gates into the park they give you the wristband there and you don't have to show them anything



Also people that are planning on heading early and want to meet princesses and fairies party days might be a good day to do this if you don't particularly want the princes as well. I went to do the princesses while waiting for the party to start at about 5 and there was a ten minute wait for them and 45 minute for the fairies. The second day I was in magic kingdom on a non party day the wait for princesses was 45 minutes and fairies was 75 minutes.

It's between peter pan and small world rides and the night I was there they had a sign that said seven dwarves meet here!

For dwarfs you'll also see the backdrop which includes wagons or wheelbarrows of jewels.

Re Mickey ghost popcorn bucket. It's easy to pack. Ears come off. That's where opening is. And it's two pieces snapped together lengthwise down sides of Mickey so you can unhook them and it lays pretty flat. Mine actually started opening along bottom while it was full of popcorn. Quite a mess in front of Caseys. : )

You just need to use the cards at the gate to get in. You will not need the paper they came with. Have fun!!

Again THANK YOU ALL for all your party posts, tips and pictures. I cannot wait to go...rain or shine!!!!!
Not sure if this got posted already or not... but they are sold out already! I tried to get one at all four parks and was shut out. An employee said they MIGHT get mroe in Oct 17th but that was a big maybe.

I was so totally bummed as it was the one thing on my wishlist!
