But, I think I'm in the minority when it comes to that.

In all the parties we've gone to, we've never been to a sold-out one, but I'm not too worried about it. I'd rather be at Disneyland than home, and as long as the weather is nice and we're all healthy and well, it should be fun. Hope you guys have a great time! Just enjoy being there and everything will fall into place.
I may try this for the fireworks as I would be seriously put out if I had waited for a long time and then someone came and stood right in front of me (I'm on the short side) and my kids.

I'm surprised that the Monday party sold out instead of Friday. There is a price difference but I thought most of the Utah crowd (like me) would be going to the Friday party.

I love your signature All American, I have that quote on my wall.

Yup. It is in Arizona, and between the holiday and the number of people over there for Gay Days, I am not surprised the park is packed.

Thanks, everyone, for the continued updates on the crowds and the parties and the merchandise (I was very pleased to see that the pumpkin-shaped bread is alive and well! Thank you, Jim, for posting that picture!)...and of course, thanks to everyone for the continued photos!

About that Mickey mug that has been asked about - I don't know if this is what's happening this year, but last year (as figment_jii indicated) the larger Mickey pumpkin mug was at some of the table service places like Carnation Cafe and Cafe Orleans (while the smaller Donald mug was at counter service places).

We went over Columbus Day weekend last year, and that was a mistake we will never make again. Good luck out there.

I know Mickey and friends were costumes, but do any other characters? I am especially curious about Pooh and the Hundred Acre Woods characters.

In the past I think I've seen them wearing masks at the actual party (and maybe something else that I'm forgetting), but not in the daytime hours.

Pooh had a costume on, but Rabbit, Eyeore, Tigger did not. They had a Meet and Greet in front of the Pooh ride, and they were there until at least 11:45 PM, when I left the area.
