Sherry, I appreciate all the work you do on this thread, and as moderator on the board. Thank you very much. I was just thinking that a small addition might make it more clear why wording from 2010 is there. You are absolutely right that you clearly say it is from 2010, but until you responded to my question, I didn't know why you used the 2010 information.

Again, thank you so much for this thread, and the previous one. I've read every single page and it's really helping me prepare for my first trip to Disneyland at Halloween.

revwog1974 -

Thank you for the kind words, and you're very welcome. In fact, I did tweak the big title/heading in the info post (post #3) a tiny bit after you asked the question (and I may tweak it again) because I totally agree that it could have been a bit more clear! I also took out the references to ticket prices and things like that which are not applicable to this year at all, so hopefully that will be a little bit better.

Actually I wish that the info from last year that Disney published in various places had been just as detailed, and I could have gotten rid of the 2010 stuff. I remember wondering why they were leaving some details out of the mix altogether, even though those things were still part of the season. Hopefully this year there will be something a little more extensive again. I would really rather have totally new info to add to that particular post each year as it comes out, just as long as it includes the specifics!

You a absolutely correct that the first thread was not a Superthread. That one got the Superthreads started like the Halloween, Christmas, F! And WoC Superthreads.

It would be nice to leave the thread as is. But it can only go till 250 pages which is a lot of posts. It is a lot of work to do all that work on the threads.

The Superthreads like WoC, F! etc. are great and very helpful. The two holiday Superthreads that you started do get a lot views and posts.

No question. So it looks like I will be posting my halloween pics on this new thread.

Here is my first Halloween pic on the new thread.

I have a costume question for all you regular MHP goers - how scary are costumes allowed to be? My 6 yr old is into zombies atm and wants to go as one, but I know in the guidelines it says "no offensive costumes". Are zombies considered offensive or too scary? We wouldn't have him covered in fake blood or anything, it would be a fairly mild version...

Should be fine with a mild zombie I think the main thing they focus on is masks and weapons

Thanks for the info, trying to look at planning a late Sept trip, Halloween so far has been our favorite time of year to visit!
My question is: Considering there is a date to the start of the Halloween season, is it safe to assume that the ride overlays will in fact be completed in time for start date?

We may push it to get in at the beginning of the time frame, but don't want to risk the rides with overlays to be down.

Also, two years ago they had expanded fireworks viewings and fantasmic viewings during the Halloween season.... was this also true last year? Wondering if it's safe to say there will be more nightly entertainment or if I need to stick to the weekend schedule for off season. Any thoughts??

Thanks for the insight!

Every year so far they've had fireworks every single night. During the parties there is the special Halloween Screams fireworks and then they had the Remember Dreams Come True fireworks show on every other night. Fantasmic was nightly except not on party nights

Back in 2009 during the Halloween season at DL, Halloween Screams made its debut and was running every night in the month of October. During that time there wasn't a MHP back in 2009. Then in 2010 for the first year of MHP, HS fireworks is a part of the party. The other days mostly on Saturday, Sunday or any holidays, DL ran RDCT fireworks while the weekdays they didn't show any fireworks. Just as iKristin said that F! is not running during MHP so you can only see it on the weekends.

Another pic for the new Halloween thread.

I ordered my party tickets on 7/1. I was told they would arrive in 7-10 days. They still haven't arrived. I'm starting to get a little nervous. For those of you who purchased tickets how long did they take to arrive. At what point should I follow-up? My credit card was charged on 7/2.

I would follow up. I think mine took 4 business days and I'm in your neck of the woods.

Hello! Just checking in on the new thread. 250 pages!
Continuing to mark time until we can buy the Ultimate Experience, and seriously hoping we don't have to wait until 30 days out. That would be Oct 1 for us!
