    I just got our MNSSHP tickets for 9/22! :cheer2::banana::woohoo::yay: I'm so excited! I've heard this party is an awesome time! I was thinking about dressing up but I don't think I have the time or patience to make a costume. I definitely want some Halloween themed Mickey ears though!

    On a completely different topic, has anyone ever eaten at Chefs de France? I'm not very big on French food (they eat snails for goodness sake!) but I'm a big fan of Ratatouille and really would like to see Remy. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

    EDIT: I just saw that Remy will only be there until September 5. I'm gonna just miss him! :(

    YAY!!! :yay: MNSSHP is a lot of fun. I went in 2006. I didn't dress up...just wore orange and black layered t's. :thumbsup2 You'll have so much fun. The parade is just so cute!

    Have you been to MVMCP or P&PP? I had a blast at both of those but I hear MNSSHP is the best of all 3. I'm planning on doing something like that too: making Halloween shirts or wearing Halloween colors. Plus my ears! :)

    I'm so excited you're going to MNSSHP!! We went 2 years ago and LOVED it. We made shirts because we didn't want to wear full blown costumes thinking that..
    1. We'd be really hot (we would've been)
    and
    2. That we'd be the only adults dressed up (uhh, we definitely weren't!).

    We made shirts that said Aurora (pink) and Phillip (blue) on them. And I wore a tiara. princess: We got so many compliments from the CMs saying that we had the right idea since it was so hot out. :thumbsup2 But, Jenny, you really should find a way to dress up. We will brainstorm shirt ideas! :banana:

    I ate Chefs de France a while ago but remember enough to know that I probably wouldn't eat there again. It's not that it wasn't good, it just wasn't for me. I am not a fan of French food at all (except crepes) and would've preferred to go to another place for the amount of $$ we spent. BUT, I would go just to see Remy but since he won't be there I think you're better off going somewhere you liked the food.

    Great update!! I wish the trip was like, tomorrow! :rotfl:

    That's a cute idea for shirts!! Do you have pictures? Joe loves Wall-E so I was thinking of making shirts that say Wall-E and Eve. You can help me design them. ;)

    Remy will be gone Sept 5 so it's not even worth going to Chefs de France if he's not there anymore. I don't think it would be my kind of place either. I looked at the menu and was just thinking 'what is this stuff?' :scared:

    I wish the trip were tomorrow too! It's like all I can think about.

    Thanks!! :) I love the Loft.

    Why is your DH against going?? What does he have against free candy?? :laughing: Would you go the 22nd if you do decide to go? Maybe I'll see you there!

    I love Halloween! I don't think we're going to dress up though because it will be too hot and the costume idea I had would have to be made, not bought. I wanted to go as Super Mario & Princess Daisy. I think I'm just going to make us t-shirts of them though or maybe Wall-E and Eve.

    No, I haven't been to either of those. But the Halloween party is SO CUTE! :thumbsup2 The "Boo To You" parade is awesome. And it's a lot of fun just walking around. The kids trick-or-treated and got TONS of characters' autographs. Be sure to stick around...later on the villians come out for pictures, etc. It was one of my favorite parts!

    I've heard the Headless Horseman at the beginning of the parade and the Haunted Mansion float are not to be missed! I'm planning on hitting every trick-or-treat spot. :) I can't wait!!!!

    We went to MNSSHP last year and it was awesome! You will have a great time! The kids dressed up for the evening and my husband and I each bought POTC tshirts, he bought a Jack Sparrow hat with dreads and I bought the pirate Minnie ears. It was silly but sooooo fun! The headless hoseman is very cool, but don't blink, you will miss him! I love Hallo Wishes. I thought it was amazing! We had so much candy last year that we left most of it behind! If we would have had room to bring it home I would not have had to buy candy for trick or treaters!

    There are a couple of DISigners on the Creative DISigns board that have designs for MNSSHP if you want to check those out for tshirts. Another easy costume that we thought about was Mouseketeers. White shirts with names, black shorts and mouse ears.

    I can't wait for MNSSHP! It's going to be so much fun and we're going to be on a sugar rush from all that candy. :rotfl: I'm definitely going to be picking up minnie pirate ears for the pirate night on DCL. I'm looking forward to that a lot too!

    Thanks for the suggestion! I will definitely go check that board out.

    Wall-E and Eve would be super cute!!! Mario and Daisy would be really cute as well but I feel like you'd have to be full blown dressed up and trust me, you wouldn't want to be all dressed up. :rotfl:

    I will try to find our MNSSHP pics and send them your way!!!

    Joe liked the Wall-E and Eve idea so we'll probably stick with that. He went shopping for summer clothes yesterday (for the first time in YEARS) and I tried to convince him to by a t-shirt with Grumpy on it and it read 'I'm Bringing Grumpy Back' but...no sale. Ah well.

    Thanks!

    Hey- do we share men? My DFiance refuses to shop for clothes!! :lmao:

    :laughing: Too good about that shirt.

    I am PMing you a picture of our MNSSHP shirts!! I'd share with the group but it's not a very flattering picture (it was raining, I look drunk and tired :cool2:).

    The best thing was, he was just picking up clothes and throwing them over his arm. He didn't even try anything on. I mean, shirts pretty much look the same on guys but he didn't try any of the pants or shorts on! :sad2:

    Hmm.. maybe we are dating the same man? Or is this just a common man theme?

    I'm pretty sure it's a common theme. He was so proud of himself for buying new clothes. :rotfl2: And of course, since we were already at the stores, I just had to buy something!
