I would also like to know about pins - specifically to confirm where they are available. Last year for MVMCP I purchased at the pin shop in Frontierland near the Country Bear Jamboree, wondering if the MNSSHP pins will be there as well? Anywhere else? Thanks!

clueless question...

Okay so having rebooked our trip to begin October 31st, my question is for those not attending the party and dressing up is it allowable to have a "normal" evening at the MK or is it best to avoid it altogether. If our flight arrives in the morning and we headed to MK at 3 PM , does our regular pass work for that? Can party guests go on rides? I would hope so given the xtra money being shelled out. If my travel party is childless is this a good night to ride Soarin 25 times in a row? Or TOT? Any suggestions?

I don't think you can stay in MK without party tickets actually so I would stick to planning fun in the other parks if you aren't planning to attend MNSSHP.

So the MK would "close" to all guests without party ticket? Starting at 7 or earlier? At this point I think we will do DHS anyway....

yes...if you don't have a ticket for the party you will be asked to exit the park at 7 pm

Only guests who have purchased a party ticket will be allowed in MK after 7pm and not all all (but a lot) of the rides are open to them and usually fairly quiet. AK closes at 5pm, Studio's at 7:30 and EPCOT 9pm. DTD have some Trick or treating early in the evening I believe, which is free for anyone. Does that answer any of your questions? Maybe your resort is doing something special?

I have been doing lots and LOTS of reading regarding MNSSHP because not only is this our 1st WDW trip, but our first Halloween there as well. I just want to confirm what I am reading: If I am going to be there for a week, then do everything ELSE (rides, shows, etc) at MK on a different day before the party so we can focus on the party and not other MK stuff, right? Also, with a 7 day park hopper (and also a 3 day PtoP at UO) I only need our tickets for the party, not in addition to my day pass (unless I was planning on going earlier and just staying), right? My thoughts are to not go to any of the WDW parks at all that day, maybe IOA early in the day, rest in the middle and then party at MK. Would this work? I don't want to waste a day's ticket if I don't need to, but if I have to have it anyway to use the party ticket, then I may as well stay on property and do another park that morning. Does that make any sense? lol

Also, I haven't bought the tickets for the MNSSHP yet, as we were still debating 9/21 or 9/23. Any past goers know if a Tuesday or Thursday is better? (There are still tickets, I am not worried about that...the AAA lady keeps me up to date. )

Yes this is a good idea, b/c the rides are there any other day but the activities are not, you should have time to ride a couple though b/c the lines will be short. i actually planned on riding the rides but once i got at the party there was so much to do that we didnt ride much at all. it is fun to ride Pirates and the haunted mansion but the HM had such a long line last time that we didnt ride it at the party, did it another day. Also, with a 7 day park hopper (and also a 3 day PtoP at UO) I only need our tickets for the party, not in addition to my day pass (unless I was planning on going earlier and just staying), right? You only need to use your party ticket to get into the party. if you want to get in sooner than 4pm you'd have to use a regular ticket. our plan is to go to the waterpark before the party or go to another park like Epcot and then go over to the MK at 4pmMy thoughts are to not go to any of the WDW parks at all that day, maybe IOA early in the day, rest in the middle and then party at MK. Would this work? SureI don't want to waste a day's ticket if I don't need to, but if I have to have it anyway to use the party ticket, then I may as well stay on property and do another park that morning. Does that make any sense? lol If you had to also use a park ticket then no one would care about when you can get in b/c the park tickets would get you in when the park opens. if you're already in the park you just go at a llittle before the party to show your ticket and get a wristband

Also, I haven't bought the tickets for the MNSSHP yet, as we were still debating 9/21 or 9/23. Any past goers know if a Tuesday or Thursday is better? both days should be good b/c its not a weekend and it's not October, go for it! I'll be there soon after you (There are still tickets, I am not worried about that...the AAA lady keeps me up to date. )
have a great trip!

Just looking at my itinerary and still pondering the party. Which night of these three would be the best and which would be the busiest .... or does it make any difference?

Oct 11th - Columbus Day. Would it be really busy?
Oct 12th - Would be great, but I will have to try and change our House of Blues ressie.
Oct 14th - we have a resort photo session at the Poly at 4.45 so that would get us to MK around 6 pm.

Oh decisions!!!

I've never been to the party, but I'm going to be there the same week as you. Since the 11th is an holiday, I would not risk to buy tickets for that day. There might still be a lot of people on a long weekend type of vacation. We bought tickets for the 12th, thinking that we might go the 14th as well if do not have the time to see everything we want to see on the first night.

See you there!

I only wanted to say that I would avoid the Columbus Day party as that one has sold out in the past. It will be busy.

Nothing wrong with getting to MK around 6p on a party night. Better than not going at all.

The two nights other than Columbus day are a toss up.

Good luck!
