I'm sure the fireworks got cancelled because of all of the wind warnings.

There was also a big power outage in parts of Anaheim yesterday (or overnight Thursday into Friday) - not sure if that would have had an effect.

Even though the wind was not heavy in certain areas and it was crazy in others, of course the weather people hyped it in advance. It didn't turn out to be bad last night - not as bad as predicted - but it may have been just windy enough to cancel fireworks.

Yesterday, when I made my December reservation for the PPH on the phone, the CM told me that "1000" tickets to the MHP had just been released to the 3 hotels for the few remaining party nights (including last night, I guess). In other words, the 1000 tickets were spread out between the 3 hotels and offered to guests - not sure how many were available for each night. She said that Guest Services had been telling people that tickets would not be available at all, not even at the hotels. If the 1000 tickets are not all snapped up and there are some left over, it's possible (though not definite) that the extras may be released to the ticket booths for last minute purchases - but the hotel guests have first crack at the 1000 tickets for the last couple of MHP's.

Maybe it's just me, but 1000 seems like an awfully high number since they already sell so many to the general public.

Winds apparently. They showed the Halloween fireworks last night though (instead of remember dreams come true). And last night was far more crowded than during the party on Friday - on Friday I turned up to (try to) catch the fireworks just about 5 minute before and the was still space at the hub; last night at about the same time people were backed up all the way down main street!

I'm so sorry to hear that. I'm sure you'll still have fun, it is Disneyland after all.

Sorry. One member of our party couldn't come due to illness and it's sad. You miss them. Take lots of photos and have fun and tell him all about it.

So I skimmed through the entire thread, and maybe I just missed it, so I'll just ask. Are there any party-exclusive characters out for MHP? We are going tomorrow, and I just feel so unprepared!!

Phineas and Ferb are in the Innovations building and the "Strom Troopers" as the map calls them are by the store at the exit of the Buzz Lightyear Astroblasters ride. Sally is with Jack by the HM and I'm not sure if she is out in the day.

We really didn't do many characters so I'm not sure of any others.

Am I allowed to post pics here that I will take on Halloween? I won't be going to Disneyland. I'm staying at home and passing out candy. I will be dressing up.
