I will be setting up a Photobucket in the next couple days of the trip.

Oh boy, I hope the tour is more than a five ride fastpass. We have three people in our group that do not do rollercoasters either. Where does the tour start and end? Which ride is HTH? Do they give you time to add the ride photos to your photopass plus? Is the tour only in DL or is some of it in DCA like previous years?

I hope you had a fabulous time! (love the photos!)

I did the HH tour a week and a half ago with my 12 yr old DD. We had a blast!!!

It was a fun quest/adventure centered around 5 rides. I won't give away too much as it was fun let it unfold.

It started in DL and ended in CA. If roller coasters are a no-go then it might be a bit of an issue, but some people sat out a ride or two. I am not giving any spoilers as this is available on the DIS boards and the Disney site. The tour includes Haunted Mansion, BTMRR, Matterhorn, Ghost Galaxy (space mountain) and TOT.

I was allowed to get the photos onto my FP... But had to be quick about it. I took a pic of the number with my phone in case I needed to go back.

I knew what to expect by reading trip reports and calling Disney. It was so much fun!!!!!! There were families with children ranging in age of about 9 being the youngest in our group to older teens/young adults with their parents. There were a couple singles and couples sans children. The group was small... 18. I think they take 20 max. I was so impressed and had so much fun I signed DH and DS(8) up for the Discover The Magic Tour the next day. They had a great time on that too!

I have locker question for MHP. How many times are you allowed to get into your locker? Me and a friend of mine are going to rent a locker for the 19th. We are planning on getting there before the party starts. We are renting the locker for putting a larger soft bag w/ wheels to use after the to take our candy out of there. I know we'll at least do one candy drop. I'm going to try to rent a locker again for the 23rd.

Awesome! We are a group of 13 ranging in age from 4 to 70. We are doing the Ultimate Experience so I am wondering if we will still end in DCA. Would be odd to end there when the Halloween party will be starting in DL. I will have to wait and see I guess! Glad to hear I can get the ride photos. Thanks so much!

No worries! It was a lot of fun!
I just did the tour... Not during the party so I am not sure if you would still end in CA.

The one ride that a couple people skipped was ghost galaxy... It may be a bit intense for the younger kids.

Take glow sticks for your group. Give them to the tour guide and other people in the group. When it started to get dark it was harder to see the group. I was afraid of losing them. Your tour will probably start later than ours did too. They used to give out glow necklaces as part of the tour.... They really should still do this IMHO! It was an oversight on my part as we took a ton of the glow sticks from Michael's for the nights we stayed for fireworks and WOC. I should have taken them for the tour.

Have fun!!!!!!!

Locker entry is unlimited; just save your code. I take a photo of it just to be certain I won't lose it. I've not heard of wheeled luggage was allowed in the parks (even a soft bag) but maybe someone else can chime in for sure.

Are Jack and Sally just during MHP? I'm confused as to if the character pairs (Jack and Sally, Captain Hook and Smee, etc.) are available during the day at Halloween time or only during the party.

And if anyone has any information on Star Wars character appearances either in the day or during the party I'd appreciate it. That's something my boys (including DH ) would actually stand in line for.

For last year's party I took the soft sided insulated bag with wheels and stored it in a locker, no questions asked. We made numerous candy drops throughout the night. it was so full, we put an extra, filled bag, on top of it to wheel it out of the park.

Last year, I believe Jack and/or Sally were meetable not just for the Halloween season, but also during Christmastime. I met them as a pair on the morning of (I believe) the Monday after Thanksgiving. The line filled and was closed off VERY quickly, but that was a year ago. Not sure how the line runs now, if they might let folks wait for Jack and Sally to return to the area (like when Rapunzel takes a break), or if they cut off the line for breaks.

This year Jack and Sally were reported as doing meet-and-greets in the area with the (currently inoperable) Haunted Mansion Fastpass machines. I haven't heard how you see them during the parties this year.

With Disney seriously cutting back on villains this year, I don't think Captain Hook and Smee are out at all before the party.

I don't know much about Star Wars so I'll defer to others there.

I stand corrected. Good to know and thanks for the info! I wish I didn't have to transport all my delicious chocolate candy in a warm car to get home.

If you're looking for a Disneyland Halloween ringtone I posted a few right here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3000833

There are a couple Haunted Mansion tones and I will be making more over the next two days so watch out for even more including "grim grinning ghosts"

BTW does anyone know if the rock version of Grim Grinning Ghosts from the fire works is available?

Thanks,
Jim

Jim -

Thank you so, so much for posting the fabulous photos for us! I love seeing the merchandise pictures - and I'm so glad to see that you found some good pins!





Happy October 1st, everyone!! We have now begun my favorite 3-month phase of the year: October-November-December!

Even though Summer refuses to leave and is threatening to pack us with a 100+ degree wallop today and tomorrow, I still love me some October!! Fall weather is coming sooner or later - I just know it is!

Count me in as another one who is tempted by the sweet siren song of that Holiday Cookbook! I love cookbooks! I love holidays! I love Disney cookbooks! I love Disney merchandise and Disney parks! What's not to love about a holiday cookbook?
