MNSSHP-What kinds of candy do they give out?

Let's hear it I want to get fat like a blimp.

Hoping for chocolate but expecting crappy smarties.

It's usually a blend, think 75% cheap candy (smartees, lollipops, jolly ranchers, sixlets, etc) and 25% good candy (snicker's milky way, reeses, etc). Some nights are better then others at getting good candy. I went twice last year and once got all cheap candy and the second time got a decent amount of good candy. Either way it's a fun time!

One year I went (a long time ago) and it was 90% snickers, but every year since has gotten to be less and less good candy. The last time I went (2009) I got 60% raisins, 35% misc, 4% chocolate, and 1% non-edible (paper rulers, stickers).

Go and enjoy the party, don't waste valuable time treat or treating, and just buy your own candy.

we have never gotten anything other than what you would consider crappy candy..think Smarties, Dum dums, Dots, Sugar Daddys etc..I think I might have gotten one piece of chocolate on the way out.Chocolate and HOT Florida do not exist well together..Don't go for the candy.

I've never been before, so I can't say for sure what kinds of candy you get, but to quote my brother, "You get so much candy, you could sell half of it to kids on the street and fund your next trip."

This is most of what we got on the night of the last MNSSHP last year (Nov. 1).....that's close to 8lbs. of candy and we didn't really make a concerted effort to trick-or-treat!

I agree. Do people really spend $60 on a ticket for the candy? Take $10 to Walgreens when you get home and go wild.

And honestly...... chocolate? In THAT heat?

I totally agree. The trick or treating is such a minor part of the party, why focus on how "good" (or "bad") the quality of the candy is? My philosophy is, go to the store and buy whatever kind of candy you want when you get home. Then you'll get exactly what you want!

While I totally agree with you guys for myself, my kids really DO enjoy the trick or treating.. call it a kid thing, but they were totally psyched about being able to trick or treat all over Disney World!

ITA. The trick-or-treating is a big part of the epxerience for my DD. She doesn't even eat the candy, so I have no idea why she likes so much, but she does. Honestly, it takes very little time to do. We just pop in to the lines on out way to other activities. A minute or two later we're on our way.

I agree with you guys. I mean.... trick or treating......... IN the MAGIC KINGDOM? It's very cool...... both for kids and kids at heart.

What I don't get is the fixation (and countless threads EVERY YEAR) about the low quality of the candy.

We had plenty of time to do all the trick or treat stops, go to one of the dance parties, see the parade, the fireworks, get tons of Photopass shots done and rode every ride that was open at least twice. I don't know why people talk about not having time to trick or treat? We didn't even feel rushed.

Telling people not to waste time trick or treating at MNSSHP is no different than telling people not to waste time standing in line to meet Snow White and all the dwarves but for some reason telling people THAT is crazy. I personally think THAT is a huge waste of time. THe trick or treating, we just hit each spot as we made our way around the park. It's not like you have to JUST get the candy and can't stop until you are done!
