That's great info in that link, thanks! Does anyone think that the photopass will be worth it? I've never had it, do you HAVE to purchase anything on it while you are there, or do you just choose when you get home on the site?

I'm so excited we are attending this year for the 1st time. My boys are 7 and 3 and they are so excited.

I was thinking about going on the day of arrival for us, we are staying at the Dolphin for 1 night and switching over to AKV.

My question is, does anyone think it makes sense to attend the party the 1st night? Our plane arrives in Orlando at 11:30 a.m., so I thought it would be enough time to eat lunch and take a nap then go to the party.

Or should we attend the party later in the week? We are staying 9 nights, so we should have enough time.


Thanks, I can use some help

Disney Visa Discount

Sorry if this has been mentioned already, but I was checking on the Disney Visa site for any offers and saw that the Halloween Party has prices of $44 for many dates in Oct with the Visa Card. Hope they do this for when we go for the Christmas Party. It's a better discount than the AP one.

If you pre purchase the photo pass can you include the pics from your MNSSHP?

Yes. You can include ANY photopass from your trip.

And lest anyone not know this....... take a digital photo of the back of ANY photopass you get. If you lose the card, all you need is the number from the back of the card to add them to your account.

I think it depends on what your plan for the next day will be. My niece didn't wake up until very late the day after the party. I'm going to guess it was after 10 am when I called to say there was no way we were making our 11:40 ADR at GG and she was still sound asleep.

The following year I made sure to pick a party night a few days into our vacation and left both the party night and the following day rest days. We hung out at the resort and DTD. She napped before leaving the resort on the party night.

posted this in another thread re MVMCP...from passporter newsletter.They're usually very reliable as to info & up until now i was discounted the rumors that 4 pm entry time wouldn't be allowed this year. hope they're wrong as i wasn't planning on using a MYW tix that day.

Odd re the comment as to being allowed in with confirmed ADR, i highlighted in red, since i have an ADR approx 5 pm maybe it means i'd still be permitted in early. Anybody else in the same boat might want to make an ADR ASAP.

Updates:
What's New and Changed


Here are a few items of relevant news:

No Early Entry for MNSSHP & MVMCP? It is being reported that guests attending Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP) will not be allowed to enter the park until the party begins at 7:00 pm unless they have either valid daytime admission to the park or a confirmed Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR). For the past few years guests without daytime admission were allowed to enter the park as early as 4:00 pm using the party ticket.

We are going on Oct. 21. We have Pirates League at 3:10. We are going to have to use a ticket to get in the park at 3, then go back and get our wrist bands. I don't have a problem with this. But my main goal this year is to get my picture with Snow white and the 7 dwarfs. Where do I need to be and when? Thanks.

Dwarfs will be in the Fantasyland Skyway area. Snow and her Prince in Toon Town. All 9 should be available all night, I would suggest lining up for the dwarfs at 6:30.

Here is the rumored list of 2010 MNSSHP Characters.

Ok, this might have been asked already - but we are planning on attending the party on the night of Sept. 18. We just cannot swing purchasing our tickets until August 27. Will we still be able to get tickets for that night??

You can purchase tickets at the resort or at any of the parks. I buy mine a day or two before the party I want to attend. If somehow the party is sold out, then I will be happy I didn't get tickets. I don't want to be at a sold out party.

The problem, though, is that all of this (everyone's info, not just Passporter's) is still just conjecture and speculation. We won't know for sure until the first parties happen.

Good point! - except we have ressies for Pirate's League for that evening just before the party. I wonder if they will let us in or if we will need to use one of our park ticket days??
