Quick question about Mickey and Minnie. Are they in their Halloween outfits all day on party days or do they switch over at a certain time? I want to make sure we get a pic with them in their costumes (don't care which one) but I wasn't sure what time we should go. TIA!

I paid 60 dollars for two people, but I think its 60 per carriage.

I am going on the 18th as well but at 9:30! It has to do with the headless horse man and such.

Hi All,
Me and my family are going to MNSSHP the first time this year. I was thinking of doing this (amongst other things obviously):

9:30 Watch the fireworks
10:05 Watch the Villains show
10:30 Watch the parade

What is the best way to do this? Is there somewhere to stand that is good to watch all three from, i.e. that is a good place for the parade on its route? If so, where is it? Or maybe watch the fireworks on main Street and then move up near the castle and watch the show and parade from the same place? I just thought it would save standing 30 minutes plus just waiting for the parade.

Thanks,
Matthew

In years before, I've always ended up on the castle side of the hub for all three of those things. You get a pretty good view of the fireworks. You're close enough to the stage for the villains show, can go grab a spot in line afterward if you want to meet them, and you're already on the parade route. Essentially, you can just stay in one central area, and knock a few things out.

Funnily enough, I was talking about doing just that in another thread - http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2561282 a few days ago. I was attempting to figure out how to not stand around for 2 hours, but it's always worked for me in the past. How does that saying go? If it's not broken, don't fix it? LoL

The popcorn bucket is $7.75 and can be purchased at any of the popcorn carts throughout the park. It's not flavored popcorn but as earlier poster said can't imagine them not selling it to you empty if someone didn't want the popcorn. They were filling them as ordered so easy enough to do

I'm going back with family oct 28. Getting worried about crowds or selling out. How likely is that? Thought I'd read that Halloween is only night that consistently sells out. How crowded is it in busy nights? It's still better than a really busy day at MK right?

Would it be better to watch the fireworks further back (on Main Street) for a better view and then move to the place you describe above?

Mickey and Minnie are only in their Halloween costumes during MNSSHP. During the day, they are in regular clothes. They switch over at 7:00pm and rotate their costumes throughout the night.

Alright, so let me get this straight-- Space Mountain was left off of the map but it is open?

I read that someone rode it twice in one night.. what about from any of the later parties?

I just don't want to get my hopes up and it not be open!

From everything I have read it is open. It was left off the map possibly because they used a template from last years map and at that time Space was down for a refurb.
Others have also posted that the map has already been re-printed to reflect it being open.

Alright....now I'm getting frustrated. I called the above number three times, spoke to ticketing, and each time I was told by the CM that they cannot see the percentage/capacity at which the tickets for a specific date are sold to date. Even said there was no one they could transfer me to to get that info. Am I asking the wrong question?? Wondering if those who got answers were just given a "blow off" number like the above poster mentioned
