I already have planns for 3 more costumes for next yea. A wolf, my black cat Suzy, and a Candy Corn colored cat.

Just left the party and a had a great time. The fireworks truly are spectacular. And the candy!! Wow!! Very disappointed in the "parade" err...cavalcade. I wouldn't even bother with that again.

Overall, we had a great time. I think MNSSHP is probably a better value. But with that said, I would do MHP again!!

I was really disappointed that almost all of the merchandise was gone on/by Halloween. It's the most expensive party. Couldn't they have set aside some for us?

Thanks for the thoughts. I did have my cousin's ticket and they gave me the $69 back as a gift card so I could spend the money in the parks That was some compensation for being by myself.

But, I have had a GREAT 3 days!!!! Except for the party, the parks have not been crowded at all!!! I rode all 3 new Carsland rides. RSR twice!!!! I walked right into the Plaza Inn's character breakfast! I've never even been in the Plaza Inn and I know it was Walt's favorite and I could just see him and Lillian eating there!!

The party was fun but...... VERY crowded. I waited about a half hour for the ONLY character I got a picture with!!!!



I did get a ton of good candy but, $69 worth of candy? The "cavalcade" was very short. Not sure it was worth the wait. The fireworks were great!!! And everyone's costumes were great!! Wow! People really got into the costumes!!!!

The MNSSHP in DW was much better but, I'm glad I did this. And - my cousin finally got here about 10:30 last night

I'm glad you had fun I agree with you on the party. I'm really glad we went last year, and I did enjoy it (loved seeing Zero fly ,) but I don't know that I would do it again.

Funny you mentioned that it wasn't $69 worth of candy, as I met a guy in line to see Jack Sparrow and he had a huge bag with him (said it was from comicon and the bag was about 3 1/2' high and 2' wide). I asked him why he brought such a big bag and his response was that he planned to get $69 worth of candy

I had to pay for tickets for my daughter and I. Bought the tickets early, for the cheaper days, but I don't think I got $92 worth of candy!

Does anyone have photos from the Halloween fireworks that they would be willing to let me use in my scrapbook? I wouldn't share the photo or do anything else with it I just want it for my scrapbook because not one single photo of mine from the fireworks or F! turned out We got a new camera in April and thought we'd figured out how to use it. Apparently not.

Hopefully someone is still reading this thread.

What camera did you use for those great shots? My firework pics never come out like that? Even on the firework setting.

Just got back and now thinking about a Halloween trip... Not sure if we can make it work for 2013... But I hope so... Need to do some research, would like to go early October I think, and make sure we can do a party night... But want to avoid the weekends, seems to me that it was super crowded all last October... Here's to planning again!

Canon 40D, on a tripod, these are probably 8-10 second exposures. Too much smoke though, should have used the remote and taken shorter exposure times.

Just booked 2 nights at the Grand CA (thank you DVC) for October. My little sister missed out this last year so I am taking her this year for her 1st time. Nice excuse, huh? Who is with me? Or have I missed Sherry E already starting a new thread?
Later,

Sue -

There won't be a new Halloween Time Superthread until we hit page 250. The Superthreads are general, year-round information threads for our forum - they don't change just because we're in a new year. It's the same thing for the GCH Superthread, the WoC Superthread, the Fantasmic Superthread, the DLH one, etc. Superthreads are a primary source of information (and discussion) on specific subjects until they hit the page limit, at which time a new one begins because we have to close threads at page 250. So this one will be in effect until that point!

Now the actual Mickey's Halloween Party check-in threads are new each year, and different people handle those. Same thing with the October check-in threads - those change every year.

I just have to remove last year's dates from the title and first page of this thread, but everyone is free to still post in it. I've been wrapped up with holiday stuff for a while!
