Many locations have characters until 12, however, they will start cutting lines so you wouldn't be able to just hop in line at 11:59. Characters will start cutting out shortly before 12 depending on when their attendants cut the line. They will almost always leave earlier than 12 rather than later.

They do not sign. Please see this list to see which characters sign: 2010 MNSSHP CHARACTERS

went to the sept 14 party and had a blast! saw both parades, second one was less crowded but not THAT much less crowded. watched hallowishes, trick or treated till midnight and rode a few rides. weather was great! you can still take pics with the carriage, and the dwarfs, and we hung out at the dance party in tomorrowland for a bit, and saw a lot of characters with short lines (we didnt stop but for one) treat bags still small, we bring our own. we once again enjoyed it! I will post pics on my blog at some point, link is in my siggy!

Long time Disney traveler here, but first time to MNSSHP (Oct 19th). I love a good plan of attack. Below are our must-do items. I'm trying to figure out the best time to watch Villians. Any advice from you MNSSHP experts on the order and timing of things would be very appreciated!

Must Do:
7 Dwarves
Villians Show
Fireworks
Parade
Haunted Mansion

We will fit in trick or treating, other rides and characters as available.

Thanks!!

line for dwarfs stayed long all night, so I don't know if there is a good time for that,maybe during one of the parade times, then hit the other parade?

You need to learn to "disguise" the buckets at home. I use mine for storing things in like DD's hair accessories, my cookie cutters, picnic cutlery ... so instead of making it look like you buy too many buckets, it makes you look like you keep things tidy

Thank you so much for this. And thank you to everyone who has contributed in any way to this thread. I bought my tickets for our very first party on October 12th and I would go as far as to say that almost all the information I have been able to get has come from this thread. I hope to see some DISers. I have made a LGMH.

List?

Anyone have a list of the highlights of this thread? I've gotten behind and only read sections. I would love a copy to read on my roadtrip to Disney. Leaving next week!

Dinner before the party

Does anyone had a recommendation for where to eat before the party? I currently have reservations at The Plaza resturaunt at 4:10 or the Liberty Tavern at 4:30. I noticed the Liberty Tavern has a fixed menu for dinner so I am leaning towards the Plaza but would appreciate anyone's views.

If you have any other suggestions I am open to it and can try and make an ADR but there seems to be very limited availability.

Thanks.

Just back from orlando so sad!!
Had a brilliant time, the halloween party was great, the weather was brilliant aswell last year it rained the whole night so they didn't do the headless horseman but we got to see him this year.

I was dressed as snow white so had a great time with the dwarfs and when I met Snow White after I got my photo taken with her I asked her if I could have one just with the prince so that was fun!!! One of my sisters loves tinkerbell so she was dressed as tinkerbell and has a tinkerbell tattoo on her leg so was so happy when she met tink and she was even talking to her about her tattoo, my other sister and my husband were meant to be going as mr and mrs potato head but we ran out of time so they bought costumes at walmart when we got there my sister went as a purple fairy and my husband was a whoopie cushion which got a lot of laughs everywhere we went!!

Had a great time will upload some pics xxx
