I found that is was worth the extra time. The party has a different feel about it. The background music and the lighting is different and my children were so excited to trick or treat we did not get to do as much as we wanted. Certain places are closed and the candy lines run through them. You will want to experience it all. So i though it was worth it to try to fit it all in and absorb as much atmosphere as possible. Enjoy

Getting really excited now - just a couple more days and will be there! Also managed to pick up a costume (that doesn't take up too much luggage space) that will wear to MHP this coming Friday. Just hope won't be too jet-lagged so I can really enjoy the whole party (want to make it to 12am!)...

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.
We were at the halloween party on 10/19 and were in the park with the overlaping crowds. We got to the park about 5:30 and it was MAJOR crowded! Main Street was a mess to even walk. We immediately went to HM to ride. I noticed about half had wrist bands on and half did not. I would say its worth it but you have to keep in mind the crowds and plan accordingly After 7pm the crowds were much more manageable!

I'm not usually a costume person, but we all wore Incredibles costumes and I'm glad we did. It made the party more fun. We arrived about 5 pm and it was very crowded (could hardly move on main street), but we did a few things like Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln and a couple of the other time consuming not so popular things. Also you can shop or stand in line for photopass photos. And boy were there lines for the photopass photos!

For those that attended the 10/19 party, I have a photo request -

My friend and I were selected to ride in the firetruck (more like a firecar lol) in the 10PM parade. Does anyone happen to have a photo of that car? We would love love love a picture of us from the parade! Thank you in advance

We met friends inside the park today, with our annual passes, but NOT the MHP tickets. We were next to Haunted Mansion when they started handing out candy a little before 6:00. Even though we weren't planning on staying for the party, we were not forced out and even got a little candy before leaving a short time later.

It was so much fun last night!! I was there by myslef and to carry 20 + pounds of candy was bad. I will try to remeber to rent a locker next year. I was able to be the second person in for both Crullia and the Villan fron the Pricess and the Frog.

I'm starting to get excited. We are going on Halloween; I'm kind of surprised it hasn't sold out yet!

We went last night and had a great time! Some of the candy lines moved slowly but not too badly and we got a ridiculous amount of candy. Watched the fireworks from Small World since it was too crazy in front of the castle and it was still a good show. Ride lines were very short. Totally worth it!

I do remember seeing the firetruck in the 10pm parade, but alas we took no pictures of the parade. Sorry

Where you at the 10/19 MHP? I remember my kids pointing our a family with dresses as the Incredibles. Cute costumes!

That was probably us. The costumes weren't as impressive as most, but I think it worked well because there were the 5 of us . . . and Eda Mole to fix our costumes if need be
