I"ve read reviews of WDW's Christmas parties, usually they say do it once but not a "every trip" event.
I am in agreement!!!
This is our first Halloween party (our usual visits are at christmastime). A couple years ago we visited WDW at Christmas and I was shocked that you had to pay for the holiday atmosphere. We were there a couple weeks before Christmas and it was business as usual. Next to no decor, no holiday parades, no "snow" on main street. Everything that makes Christmas at Disney so special.
The talk of dwindling Halloween decor, only holiday fireworks and parades during paid events. Is this a sign of what's to come with Christmas? The only way to truly enjoy the holidays above and beyond already expensive entry?

So I am at a loss for what to do about the top to my costume. I posted a picture the other day of how I wore it to WDW, but that top was cheap and ripped a bit, so I was trying to replace it. I though, I'll buy a real corset (the other one was more like a top). Well, it turns out my shape is not made for corsets. So do I just buy that same cheap one again? Or look for something different all together? *sigh* at least I have 2 weeks I guess...

I don't know, that top from last time is really cute! And it looks great with the green skirt. Looks like it fits perfectly too. How bad did it rip? It only has to last 8 hours.

It kind of shredded right at the seam right in the front in two places. At least it happened when the party was over. lol It's only like $25 and still available on amazon...maybe I'll just click it. Thanks for the compliment!

If you can sew (even with a needle and thread), do you think you could fix it by sewing some trim in front? Maybe some sparkling lace or something? I'd reinforce/patch where it shredded first, but then lace could cover the "fix."

It looked good to me too, but there are so many Halloween options out there I'd like to think you could get something for $25 that would last more than 8 hours. I might add some poofy short sleeves (no shirt needed unless you want it) to give it a bit more of a Victorian-ish style. But that's certainly not necessary; it was a good look as you had it too.

Cheap corsets aren't really made to be compressing... the grommets don't take the tension and the buck isn't as strong as a real one. I'm curious why you think you don't have the body.

To be honest, no filling up top. I couldn't tie it up tight enough to put them away. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong....either way, the color wasn't as bright as the one in the picture.

I am hoping that by being in DLR until Nov. 5th, I might get to see some of the Christmas decorations too.

We are going to be at the party. I am going as a jedi knight (I am going to build a lightsaber there. DH is going as an original Star Trek science officer (with tricoder).

Some of the Christmas stuff will be up before the end of the Halloween season (like snow on the castle) and the day after Halloween, you will see some Christmas decorations popping up. They have a lot to do before the 12th.

Try either one with molded cups or pulling them up as you tighten. I always have better luck with bi-directional lacers. Getting them tight enough on yourself takes a bit of practice. You could always do a blouse with an underbust one as well... then you don't have to worry about filling it! The other thing that comes to mind is that maybe it was too big?

Look in the bridal dept or lingerie dept of a store, you can easily dye it to your preferred color. I see quite a few of them listed on Craigslist LA, including a gold one for $3.http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv...319666717.html

Has anyone ever done a opposite Halloween party trip. Do Disneyland from opening to party time. Then go to dca during the party. I did it last year and.it was the best. I did more that day than any other day ever. Everything was a walk on including the Peter Pan ride. It was Halloween day last year. I'm trying that this year too but on the 29. Just wondering everyone's experience with it.
