I think I may be the only person who had fun last night. I lucked into being in the front of the line for the (very) limited T-shirt over at TOT. Then over at DL we accidentally got stuck in the NOS dance party line and went with it. We got in during a break and ended up on the train tracks at the front. There was fun club and Halloween music and tons of villains dancing on stage right in front of us. I just stayed there for nearly 2 hours and had a blast. I also walked on Pirates and Jungle Cruise. I could tell no-one at Disney was prepared for the event, and it was a mess, but I sorta ended up having fun despite the chaos.
I am sad to have missed Maleficent and Shan Yu, but I don't think there would have been any way to make it close enough to see. I am really glad you had a great time!!!!

I really do think a big part of the issue is the "surprise" factor Disney wants. But the challenge of not giving guests the information is just as bad as not giving the Cast Members information. They were literally being told information less than 2 hours before. I just don't see how that is helpful for anyone!

I arrived at Disneyland when the park opened and I only waited 20-minutes for Haunted Mansion. I then rode several other rides with only 15 minute wait for each. I was lucky to purchase two of the special Friday the 13th pins and two of the Friday the 13th shirts.
