You should do a trip report (BIG HINT) I'd love to see more of your photos and hear your experiences.

LOVED your pics especially the four pirates and the singers in the mist.

Bit of a long-time lurker here, but am finally posting as have finally booked everything for a trip next week!

I'll be at MHP 26 Oct by myself, and was wondering if it would be really odd for me (in my twenties) to turn up in street clothes and go through the trick or treat lines? I'm not sure I'll have space for a costume in my luggage...

I'm not sure if it'd be really odd--maybe boring (but maybe not). I'd wear (or buy) a weird hat (you can wear it on the plane if you dare), and/or a Halloween-ish shirt.

Lots of people go not in costume. I don't think it would be weird at all. But it is REALLY fun to go in costume. DBF and I are SO not costume people before we did MNSSHP, just did it just because. We loved it so much.

Thanks for the replies - it's reassuring to know that it wouldn't be odd going through treat lines without a costume! Will have a look around and see if I can find anything relatively simple that doesn't take up too much space/weight but if not then will hopefully still have a good time without a costume!

sky13 -

I've never worn a costume to the party, nor did the people I was with, and we had no problem with treat trails. There are many others who don't wear costumes of any kind. It seems to be about 50/50 - half in costume; half not in costume.

I did see some adults trick or treating without costumes with no problems. I had a great time last night. It might rain on Tusday, so I might not be in full costume for MHP. It is lightly raining now. If it dose rain I will have my wig, makeup and tail on. I didn't take as many pics as I wanted too. I will take pics of my candy haul before I upload the pics.

I may have missed the posts, but I was wondering about special food this Halloween? Two years ago, we got the Mickey ghost popcorn bucket. Last year, the kids got sandwiches in a Jack Skellington coffin. Is there something this year?

We leave in FOUR days!! WOOHOO!!!! Hitting up Mickey's Halloween Party on 10/26!!!

Maybe we'll see you there! Our family is also going to the 10/26 party. I'm going as the Cheshire Cat (original, not Tim Burton's version) and my girls (10, 6 1/2) will be dressed as a spiderweb ghost and a monster bride (think: girl Frankenstein). So excited!

Went to the Halloween party Friday (19th) had a great time. The crowds were much lighter after fireworks. Awesome display. Walked on rides after 10pm.
I don't know if it has been mentioned but we were able to buy tickets for the sold out party because we were guests at the DLH. The front desk said any DLR guest could buy tickets for a sold out party.

I have a question for anyone who has attended a party this year & used the extra 3 hrs... Did you find it "worth it" to be there 3 hrs early or were the overlapping crowds so bad that you wish you hadn't bothered? I hesitated to use the words "worth it" as usually ANY extra hours that we can spend in the park is welcomed but in this case with the parks being as busy as they are, I am wondering if we should just wait until closer to the party start time to head in? We are going to the party on the 31st.

I will see if I can get more photos uploaded this week (my time is never my own with 4 kids at home ).
