11/25 was sold out. That was the one I went to, but it wasn't that bad actually. I got to meet all the characters I wanted to, and ride everything I wanted to ride.

Does anyone know when they ran out of MVMCP ornaments? Went looking for them the other night and was told they were sold out

Anyone have a picture of one? I'd love to torture myself by seeing one...better yet anyone have an extra they'd like to unload??? LOL

I was told normal park capacity is 70,000 and they only sell 20,000 tickets for the party. We had to wait no longer than 5 minutes for space mountain, big thunder or splash mountain on 11/9. During the first parade is your best time to do rides, and catch the second parade if you want to see it. Our kids favorite though was dancing at the diamond horshoe with woody, Jessie, and bullseye.

Not only are there far fewer guests in the park (though those numbers you were told are debatable), but many in the park during a party are doing party-specific things. Rides can be ridden 365 days a year, but there are only maybe 20 MVMCPs and a similar number of MNSSHPs to get in special parades and fireworks, unusual character M&Gs, trick-or-treat, or cookies and hot chocolate.

Seriously? Man why can't Disney plan to have merchandise available for all their parties. We don't go until the last few and the last party! They won't sell it before hand to you even if you have tickets yet they don't provide enough for people who come at the end.

Already disappointed in our first MVMCP and we haven't even gotten to Disney yet!!

Went to MVMCP on Sunday and was grossly disappointed in not only the lack of merchandise available, but also the lack of XL and XXL shirts and sweatshirts.

There is also a limited number of the usual Disney Christmas time merchandise.

what time did you look for them? They only bring that stuff out after a certain time--and its after 7pm.

Cant believe they are sold out of stuff with a few parties left.

Nope you did not need to. I used my Photopass+ card and got all of the special party borders as options for my MVMCP pics

We were at the party on Tuesday and I saw the photopass person taking pics at the dance party with Woody but then didn't see her when we left. Anyone know if I could get access to those pics and if so, how?


P.S.--We went to the party on Sunday and Tuesday and now this is the only way I want to go to MK in the future. It was great both nights!

1. You go to any of several locations around the park and they are given to you.

2. Parties are primarily a way of increasing park attendance when crowds are low. There are already extremely high crowds on Christmas Day.
