OK - this may be really strange - but the reason we're going to MNSSHP is for the short ride lines. We love seeing the characters, but don't have a passion to get our pictures taken with them (we're 4 adults).

I will take pix of the decorations and can't wait for the parade and the fireworks.

Looks like we're in the minority for our reasons for going to this party. Anyone else not stand in line to get pix with characters?...or are we the odd ones?

****we're going ON my birthday!!!****Oct 14!*****

I don't think yall are crazy! We do the exact same thing and we have 2 children DD 7 and DS 8. This year we decided to go 2 nights so we can enjoy the characters and then a night of just rides! We can't wait!

This will be our 3rd year at the Halloween party and we haven't even seen the parade. This year we will watch the parade.

If you're looking at the character list on the first post, please note that it is outdate. Pooh and Friends are meeting at the flag pole in Town Square.
Thanks for all your help and answers! You've given me loads of information!

Does anyone know how long the parade, fireworks, and Villains show are? Knowing would help in my planning.

Thanks!

The villains show is about 5-10 minutes long but the characters come down for meet and greets after the show so in all it's about 20 minutes. Fireworks are about 15 miuntes. The parade is 20-25 minutes not including the time the
parade takes to get to where you are viewing it from. The parade starts in Frontierland and ends on main street.

As I read the descriptions of what happens where, I'm getting confused. I'm so DisneyLAND oriented, that I am having trouble picturing the Magic Kindgom!

I guess I'll just have to wait and see!

Okay, here is likely a dumb question...do they still have the MNSSHP themed popcorn buckets during the parties?

For the Pirates and Princess Party they had a special boat ride with an eerie story, do they do anything like this for MNSSHP? Or a specially-themed train ride?

The map says character meet and greets will take place until 11:30 throughout the park. Does this mean at 11:30, all characters leave or the lines close??

They do have Halloween themed buckets. They have the headless horseman on them. I only saw them during the party though.
