Question

This is PROBABLY a stupid question BUT -- if we pay for MNSSHP tickets - do we need to use our regular park ticket days to get in that evening? Or are our MNSSHP tickets all we need? We won't be going to the parks that day at all except for the party.

If you're arriving just for the party, yes, that's all you need. There's debate going around about 4pm entry, since the party technically starts at 7pm, but once the debate is answered on Sept 14, all you'll need is your party tickets

We do have reservations for Pirates League at 5:20 that evening I am hoping that we won't need to use one of our park days for an hour and a 1/2.

Which party are you going to? As long as you're going after Sept 14 (the first party), you'll know for sure if you need to reschedule at PL or not. The problem is that there's no definite answer thus far about 4pm entry. If you go based on years past, it looks likely, but there are rumors flying around, like every year, that Disney will put a stop to 4pm entry this year. So if you can, I'd wait and see what happens.

I knew they did PL later than 3! When I looked at the website, I could swear I saw something that said they didn't take appointments after 3! I had considered doing it for DS for the party as well... but he's not actually 3 years old yet, so I figured I would save it for later.

Anyone know how long the Halloween decorations stay up through Nov.? We're staying until Nov. 4th, a few days after the last MNSSHP but before the Christmas party and we were wondering if we would be able to see the park with no or Christmas decorations before we left.

AS SOON AS the party is over on November 1, they will take down the Halloween decorations and get all Christmas ready for the first MVMCP on November 8.

They are pretty FAST but I'm not sure what you'll see.

We went in August 2008, and the fall/halloween decorations were put up literally overnight. Since the last party is Nov 1st, I wouldn't be surprised if they are all down on Nov 2nd.

TPL is open late on MNSSHP dates, check out The Official The Pirates League Thread for more info.

We are going on Sept. 18, but I will be down there the 14th already. I wasn't planning on taking my laptop but I may have to in order to charge my camera (I don't know how otherwise, funny huh?) So I may or may not have Internet access in order to check the DIS to find out.
I will just play it by ear to find out I guess.

good idea, but if we have to wait until 7pm to enter MK, i don't want to 'waste' time eating during the party, would just cancel the ADR I have & book something @ one of the monorail resorts. Just don't want to cancel the ADR i do have currently booked in MK if not necessary.

Would I then have to leave after dinner and come back for the party? It just seems a little off to me. I still don't think we should necessarily trust anything until Disney itself revises the party page and ticket information (which won't happen) or the first party rolls around and we see what happens on the day.

As far as I know, Cheshire hasn't commented on it, but I'm sure you could send a PM or something to see what they say I don't know if they'll have any information, though, either.
it is odd, until you read the following; where it sounds as though they're trying to appease those who had thought making an ADR after 4 pm would be ok.

I do know that in the past when i've booked an ADR near the actual park closing time via phone the operator would indicate that it's a party night & special admission tix is required.

Maybe they will start to offer something along the lines of the Epcot CP dining package? (i hope not).

Question

If it would be your first time MNSSHP -- what would be your "plan of attack" for the evening? We know we want to see Mickey and Minnie and the fairies and the Seven Dwarfs for sure. We will probably wait to see the later parade but we want to be in front of the castle for the fireworks too... Will we be able to do it? Our party night is Sept. 18, if that helps.
Oh... since we will be a family of pirates, we want to ride the Pirate's of the Caribbean that night for sure. I also think doing the Haunted Mansion that night would also be way cool.
Looking for suggestions --- want to get the most "bang for our buck" I guess. My hubby kinda choked when I told him what the ticket prices were for that night. Ha ha!
It will be my DH and our DD (9) and I and we are planning on relaxing and playing at our resort most of the day before our appointment for Pirate's League at 5:20 that evening.
