We all dressed up last time-was fun. Dh, myself and my 12 year old already decided we are going to get a Disney Halloween shirt and she wants a head piece. My 9 year old and turning 3 year old will prob dress up but still on the fence there.

I love, love, love dressing up for the Halloween parties!

In the past, DH and I have been Captain Jack and Elizabeth, and dressed our son as a pirate. We've actually never been to a Halloween party as a family of four, and when we go with the kids we do like to do a group costume.

My older son came up with the idea of us all being characters from Star Wars. So far, he wants to be R2. He wants the little guy to be R4. For those who don't know, one's blue and one's green. My husband will be a Jedi, and I'm waffling as to whether or not to be a Jedi (in the brown cloak) or do a more complicated costume.

I can just picture us, light sabers "blazing" with our little droids in front of the castle.

I have a total party of 7 on our trip, so I'm thinking it'd be really fun to have everyone dress as a group theme but not sure if I'll be able to find something everyone will agree with! My idea is to pick a Disney movie & be characters from it, but not leading role. Ex: snow white - we'd be the 7 dwarfs. beauty & beast - we'd be clock, cup, beast, broom, etc but not belle. Reason being that we can dress up as supporting characters & then get a really great photo with the leading character to complete the group. Challenge would be to pick a movie everyone can find a character they want to be =/ And does anyone know which villians will be available for photos? It'd be equally as fun to dress up & get photo with leading characters & also get a photo with the accompanying bad guy

Toy Story has tons of characters to choose from. In 2011, we went as Toy Story 3 Ken, Barbie, Jessie and Woody. We had a blast. We were even given a task to complete by Woody.

I'm sitting anxious enough as it is without this, lol
Your dates are perfect! The crowds at the earlier MNSSHP are much lighter at earlier dates . We go every year around the beginning of October and the crowds are great. We arrive the Saturday before Columbus Day weekend for 10 nights and leave the day after Columbus Day. The whole trip is usually low crowds for almost the whole trip. Columbus Day weekend is busy, but not unmanageable. The weather will be perfect too. We will be there October 5-15 this year and I can't wait

Smitch, that's a good idea, thanks!! I hadn't even thought of toys story, there are alot of characters in those to choose from - definitely putting it on the list!

titansgal, that's great to hear, thanks! We made up our plans already & we have two full days at MK, only one each at HS & EP. On the day of MNSSHP we're doing AK in the morning, so crowd levels will be important to our success especially on that day. Good to know it should be low!

We are also planning to do AK the day that we do MNSSHP. Fingers crossed that there is a party on 10/4 which is the date I'm looking at.

They should be out now! (Stomps foot)

I guess it's good for me to be patient.
