In the 7 dwarves line now. Got in line at 600 and two families in front. At 635 almost 20 families in line. Not as bad as I thought it would be. Beautiful weather for sure.

That's awesome! We tried to get in line last night around 630 and the line was HUGE! We sadly had to pass it up for other things.

I went to Thursday's party and I have to say I thought some of you that are going twice, were nuts. After going to the party I've realized, you do need atleast 2 days to do it all. We never even left Adventureland and Frontierland and we got there at 7pm and closed the place down!! It is rather eery walking through Adventureland with noone else around LOL and everything closed!!!

Thanks so much for all of the info! We had such a great time that we went a second time last week. There is so much to do/see, once is not enough.

Thanks for your help. Meeting the characters and seeing the parade/fireworks once during out two parties are what my kids have pushed for.

6:00 Line up for 7 Dwarfs

Cinderella's Carriage

Meet Hag

7:45 Villian Show Line up to meet Maleficent also meet Snow Queen

8:15 Head to Toon Town, do Minnie/Mickey and Princesses do Treat Trail

9:15 Head to Town Square to try to see Pooh Characters

Try to watch Hallowishes while we wait for Pooh Characters

10:05 Get Spot for Parade in Frontierland

Ride Haunted Mansion do Photo

11:15 Adventureland Veranda characters
We just got back....We got a spot on main street right in front for the 2nd parade. Not crowded. Then we went to dwarfs around 11:15 p.m...25 mins wait. That was the shortest the line had been all night.

Good luck. It was lots of fun again!

We had no luck with the Mickey Ghost Buckets. Keot our eyes out and no luck. Only the ToT and Fab Five as Villians. My DW asked around and found a solitary Headless Horseman Bucket at Sleepy Hollow, so we considered that a score.

Halloween Glow in the dark Gift Card

Are the Halloween glow in the dark gift cards available at all the WDW & DTD stores or only certain locations? Appreciate any info on where I find them!

Thanks to this board I got the best pictures ever! We went on Friday the 22nd. We did the Haunted mansion ghost picture right when the party started and waited about 5 minutes. Then we went immediately to the 7 Dwarves and did that picture in about 10 to 15 minutes. Had no trouble getting a great spot for the 1st parade and the fireworks.

We even did the 2nd parade, but sat right by the Maingate exit. There were plenty of places for anyone who wanted to sit to do so.

The longest wait was about 30 minutes to do the Mickey picture in Toontown, which turned out to be our least favorite picture. There is something wrong with the lighting in there. There were large shadows in our pictures, and our faces look kind of washed out.

We skipped the trick or treating, and a couple times the CMs just threw stuff in our bags as we walked by. I honestly do not know why people wait in line for candy if they don't have kids. Later in the night there were long lines for candy, and its really not good candy. :-)

I could put up a couple from when we gave our camera to the Photopass CM, but I can't figure out how? I went to the FAQ and I don't see how to do it there.

You need to post somewhere else, like Photobucket, then include the link [IMG] to your photo in your post.
