Saturday Parties in September

I'm wondering if there's anyone who attended the Sept 18 party that could help me with a quick question?

We're going to our first ever MNSSHP this Saturday, Sept 25. We're two adults who's primary focus is the parade and HalloWishes (plus the HM enhanced photos and Cinderella's carriage).

I was wondering how early we should find a spot for the parade and HalloWishes? The forecast is sketchy, so I want to try for both parades (not risk waiting for the second and have weather be an issue).

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I am just wondering how late the 7 dwarfs are out, and if its better to wait until later in the night to see them or try to get in line for the first set (like at 6:30 or earlier). I don't want to spend a ton of time in line, but it seems that they are very popular. We are going on Oct 1st....yay!

Popcorn bucket pic

Here is a picture of the souvenir popcorn bucket during MNSSHP. Sorry I can only do this via link instead of having the picture show up itself!

Princesses

I'm not sure if this is a MNSSHP question but I read that during the party all the princesses are in the room and you wait in one line and you get to meet all of them. My question is during a regular day at the magic kingdom, is it the same way for the princesses or are there different times for the different princesses. If we could see them prior to the party that would save us time, We know that the princes are with them during the party but we are really after the princesses. If anyone has any information on this topic we would really appreciate it, Thanks.

So excited! Thanks for all the fabulous tips. This will be a surprise trip for DD, so I'm just bursting trying to keep this a secret! I know she'll have such a great time, thanks to everyone sharing their know-how!

So the party ends at 1200 - how long do they keep the shops open? Do they close them right at 1200 (I figure that is kind of late for folks working)? Looking at all the pictures there is some serious shopping I may want to do...

Does anyone know if they have any special pins they offer for the party? And is there only merchandise they put out during the party or is everything available all day?

Hello -
We just got back from Disney today actually but we did attend the party on the 18th. I would suggest getting a spot for the parade quite early - you can see most of the parade from a bit of a distance though. We were directly behind the front row and we were in place about a half hour before the parade. We were able to see all of the parade.
The fireworks were a bit of a mess up for us as we ended up behind the castle over in the Liberty Tree area. We lost track of time and had planned to get out front earlier but oops! Soo.. I'm hoping someone got video of the parade from in front of the castle as I would LOVE to see it.

I wanted to add my thanks for posting the popcorn bucket pic. We'll be eating several buckets I'm sure.

Yes, stores close at midnight so shop early there are special party pins - one for each night.

Does anyone know if these will typically sell out before the last parties? I don't want to get too excited but that popcorn bucket is CUTE.
