Go around the Rivers of America and you can listen to the Cadaver Dans while getting your treats. Continue toward Critter Country and there are a few more stops but with less crowds.

We did this! It worked very well and it was a great atmosphere with all the fog and decor. We then went up and had some food at Hungry Bear, headed towards Splash, hit a couple more treat stations and then rode Splash b2b.

A little vent here...and I am sure this happens every year. Since this is my first year on these boards, I find myself trying to refrain from posting in the threads people create because they didn't get their MHP tickets in time and now their date is sold out...So they post a thread looking for tickets.
I hold back from posting, "That is what you get for poor planning"...but I digress.
OK...rant over.

Cool!!! I went to the MNSSHP in WDW last year. It was lots of fun!!!

A Mad Hatress!! That sounds like fun! Do you have any pictures of your costumes? I'm going as Dopey and my cousin will be Grumpy.

I'm starting to wonder if DL trips are bad luck for us. We should have all our bad luck done with right? Nothing will happen on the trip? We already know where CHOC is but I'm starting to wonder if we shouldn't print directions to the local hospital just in case.
Wow! I'm glad your Dad is doing okay! I hope you have a better trip this time!!!

You know, that there are some people that are not quite sure they can work it out.
And the tickets are non refundable.
So for them I understand. Especially if you have to buy for a big family.
So if I see someone posting on here looking for tickets, no big deal.
Also, it gives someone else a chance to sell theirs, if they can't make it.
Just trying to see both sides of the issue.

I understand that as well. However, they come here asking for tickets or help, when clearly you cannot buy or sell things on this forums. Most if not all of these threads get locked or deleted all together.
And tickets went on sale in July...a good amount of time to plan/budget for most.

I see what you're saying, but there are a couple of issues involved here.

First - Disney tickets are not supposed to be for resale - either at face value or for a profit - unless they are sold by authorized Disney ticket sellers. So anyone who sells tickets they already bought to someone else is technically doing something illegal. Yes, of course, people likely sell their tickets behind the scenes all the time - and I'm sure many of those transactions go off without a hitch and it works out fine. But because it's against Disney's policies to resell tickets, we can't encourage/allow any discussion of it here on the DIS.

Secondly - There are no sales of any kind on the DIS, of any items - we can't sell our Disney collectibles, our purses, our cars, our clothes, or whatever. Other boards allow For Sale posts in their forums but this board does not. So if someone tries to sell their tickets here, not only are they going against Disney's policy but also against this board's rules.

If people want to give their tickets away, free of charge, they can start a thread.

Girimama33 is correct - there have been several "I need tickets" posts lately - actually more so than I ever recall seeing in the past, believe it or not.

I know all too well that a lot of folks are not in the position of being able to get tickets right away. The price is high, and a lot of people have to wait for the money to come in, or they have to wait on other people to decide what they want to do. Heck, I have been so wishy washy about picking the date I wanted to attend the party that all of my first choices for dates are sold out. I may not end up at the MHP this year at all because I waited too long to figure out a date based on the ticket sell-out patterns in the past. I simply did not think that more than a few nights would totally sell out. There is even one extra party night added into the roster this year (11 nights instead of the usual 10 nights) and almost all the nights are still sold out!!

But I'm not going to post a thread about needing tickets! If I miss out, I miss out. It's just bad timing and bad luck on my part and I'll catch the MHP next year!

This thread is so helpful.

Can't believe this trip is finaly coming!

Sherry I see your point too. And I do know about selling stuff here on the Dis. Just forgot again.

Actually, I do. We went to MNSSHP last year too, so these are our costumes from then. I'm changing my top, but other than that, it's the same.

For those that have been to MHP so far, are the Fantasy Land rides crowded once the party starts? My kids will want some candy, but don't like the characters so I'm hoping for some good ride time.

I have a question. I had a CM mess with my cat wig on the 9th. She asked me if it was real. I didn't like that but, I didn't want to be rude. Should I tell another cast member next time if it happens again? This was at the treat trail where the Monorail is.
