Reading threads about how people are disappointed that they didn't get to do what they wanted to do at the special events like MNSSHP really makes me wonder what the different reasons are that people go the special events. Our family primarily likes to go for the atmosphere and the super short ride lines. We enjoy the special Wishes presentations as well. We like the candy at MNSSHP and the hot chocolate/cookies at MVMCP but they aren't the reason we go. Personally I'm surprised at the long wait times people will endure to see some of the characters. But that's just me/us - we don't wait to spend a few moments and a photo with a character - never have and most likely never will. We would much rather spend that time on the rides I'm not saying our reasons are the right reasons - they just happen to be the reasons we shell out so much to attend the special events (We have gone to the special events 5 times so far.) So - what are the reasons you go to the special events like MNSSHP or MVMCP?
