    Hello fellow Dis Peeps!!

    Here's the question for you MHP professionals, I have tickets to Friday night the 12th. I'll be there the Tuesday prior. Should we go twice or can we see everything we want to see in one night as long as we don't ride any rides?

    well...hmmm...personally i would have done it on Tuesday instead of Friday if I could...I honestly dont know what to say about doing it twice....I do it every year but I dont think Ive ever really felt the need to do it more than once a season...I know there are people that do so but I get in everything I want...now, you could do it and choose one night to go on all the rides and the other to do the fireworks and dance parties and meet & greets etc...and get candy on both nights...usually I have to choose between one or the other as far as my focus goes...

    Yep! I would have chose Tuesday first too, but our friends are meeting us and they won't be there until Thursdsy night, so we had to go with Friday night. Now, I'm just thinking....hmmmm....we could possibly do Tuesday night too, but would it be worth it...:confused3

    I think it depends on what you want to see and do, and what your budget is.

    If you want to do every meet-and-greet, fireworks, and the parade, and do every trick-or-treat trail, I don't see how you'd get that done in 1 night, even without rides. If you want to do a couple meet-and-greets, many trick-or-treat trails, and get an adequate view of fireworks and the parade, that should be very doable on just one night. If you want to take things slow, get photos of everything, etc. then 2 nights is probably a better choice.

    Is it realistic to expect that your friends will not want to go on any rides either? Or are you not really spending much time with them? If you (or they) go to the park less than 3 times a year, I personally find it hard to imagine being at Disneyland and not going on ANY rides, so if that's the case for them, you may have to factor that in.

    On a Friday in 2010, I felt it was very busy, but we managed to do many treat trails, one meet-and-greet, an adequate view of fireworks and the parade, and several rides. We had fun, though I would have had more fun if I'd realized just how crowded it would be and set my expectations accordingly.

    My feeling is that if you can afford it, and if you don't already have regular tickets for the parks Tuesday, and if you love villains, dressing up, special meet-and-greets, and/or Halloween, it could be a lot of fun to do 2 nights instead of 1. It's pricey but you're getting 7 hours in Disneyland (including 4 party hours) for what, $54? That's not awful.

    If you already have regular tickets for the parks for Tuesday, then I personally wouldn't spend the money to basically add on 4 hours of (party) time at Disneyland. But if you don't mind spending the money and you think it'd be fun, then have a great time and enjoy. :)

    Thank you for the feedback. Our friends will be there all day Friday with us and we agreed no rides during the party, so that's not a problem. I think I just need to figure out if it's really worth the money for the extra party night.

    Will you be in the parks besides the party? If yes, then I think two parties would be odd and expensive. If no, why not do a regular old 'park day' and a party day instead of two parties?

    That's what I was thinking. I just wanted to make sure, I can see the parade, see the fireworks, character meet n greets, trick or treat and anything else fun that there is different than the normal time at the park. We are going to be in the park all day.
