I know I saw this questions before but I never saw the answer. Can anyone say if the SOTMK cards are available all night? Plan on being in line for the dwarves at 5:30 and not coming back to front of park until 2nd parade. Could I watch the 2nd parade and then get a card? Also, what time do they close Mickey and Minnie's line. I heard 11:30 and was wondering if that was right. Thanks!

1. Can anyone say if the SOTMK cards are available all night? Plan on being in line for the dwarves at 5:30 and not coming back to front of park until 2nd parade.

2. Could I watch the 2nd parade and then get a card?

3. Also, what time do they close Mickey and Minnie's line. I heard 11:30 and was wondering if that was right. Thanks!
1. Yes. There was an early report that they ran out, but every other report I've read said they were around all night. YMMV.

2. See #1.

3. Not a set time. When CMs working the queue estimate that they have enough guests to take M&M to midnight then they will close the line. You risk being shut out anytime after 11:00p in my opinion.

WE are contemplating going Nov 2nd. Since this is the last day AND on a Friday does it sell out?

I am setting expectations for big crowds and hoping we can ride rides and see the parade. We also want some candy, but if we can get some rides in with little waiting, that will make it worth it for us.

THANKS!

Julie

Not a lot, I most often hear Cosmic Ray's mentioned. But since I don't eat during the party, I'm not the best source of info.

Thanks for the info! At least this will occupy lots and lots of guests throughout the night so that they will not be competing with us for other activities at various times of the evening.
Maybe we can snap a pic of the Dwarfs from a distance while they are between guests. I can photoshop my kids in there

Has any of the NFL be open for the last few parties? I am just curious if I should add it to our touring plan because it would be a must!

Only Storybook Circus so far. I wouldn't expect any more until MVMCP, but you never know.

The firehouse was closed before the parade ended on Sept 30th. My DD and friend tried to get cards when goofy was rounding in front of the train station and it was closed.

If we enter the park at 4 with our regular tickets can we get the regular SOMK cards and then get party ones at 7 with our MNSSHP tix? Do we have to activate our party tickets at the gates again?
