We went last night (the 21st) and had a blast! A few notes...

-I'm not sure what everyone is talking about with Space Mountain - it was on the map I received when we arrived and was running all night.. usually with a 5-10 minute wait.

-Lots of characters! We waited less than 15 minutes for the Princesses with their Princes, and less than that for everyone else.

-Yes there IS free face painting in Toontown.. I know this because it had a line around the block with a FREE FACEPAINTING sign out in front of the booth.

Can't wait; we'll be going to our first party on the Oct. 17. I would like to have a balance of seeing characters, riding rides, trick or treating and of course seeing the parade and fireworks. We're traveling with a 12 year old boy and it's his first time to Disney. Do you have any suggestions of a schedule to follow for the night. The only must is a pic with the 7 dwarfs. So we're planning on being in line by 6:30.

What time did you go by to see them?? I'll be there (solo!) next Thurs., 9/30.

I'm not sure how I'm going to attack my character stalking plan... My must sees are 7 Dwarves, Hag, Princes/Princesses and although not a character, Cinderella's Carriage.

Went to the party last night for first time! Loved it.

Re the popcorn buckets. The headless horseman ones might be available all the time. The souvenir one is a ghost Mickey. Lots of signs saying he was souvenir. $7.75 with popcorn. I'll post a pic when I'm back home if one hasn't been

Sorry if this was already mentioned. I missed it if so!

There's discussion about Space Mountain because last week's parties (definitely 9/14) did not list it on the map. The scanned map posted by wdwinfo shows that too. (http://www.wdwinfo.com/holidays/photos/mnsshp-map2.htm). When I first picked up the map for 9/14 it seemed SM would be closed. But it definitely was open despite what the map said.

Sounds like they may have already reprinted the corrected map with Space Mountain listed. Oopsie!

Hag was awesome. We just wandered by and she had no line. My DD7 had a Snow White pen, so she made a big deal about that!

Fantastic! I've been looking all over the dining boards to find a picture! Thank you!

Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't seem to find specific information on the dance parties. Where is the Toy Story dance party? Does it go on all night, or by a certain schedule? I've tried reading everything I can find, but I'm a bit overwhelmed.

I believe the Toy Story Dance Party is in Frontierland at the Diamond Horseshoe Revue Theater

And where is a good place to view Hallowishes? When should we find a spot for that?
I'm not a pro but I have heard that on the 31st you would need to stake out a viewing spot for the first parade an hour before start time - or maybe even 90 minutes. I would suggest Frontierland through Liberty Square as an alternative to Main Street.

We will be there on Halloween too! Can't wait for the party...

We went to see the princesses with a 15 min wait as soon as we finished dinner.. maybe around 7:30 or so?

We also waited less than 10 or 15 minutes to get all 7 dwarfs.. we happened to walk over and check after the last villians show at 11:15, figuring they'd be gone, but they were just lining up for the last set and we got in line about 5 minutes before they closed it! Turned out perfectly! After that, we went to get a pic with the carriage and that was not even 5 minutes. I thought it was funny we did that just before midnight.. half expected it to turn back into a pumpkin
