    Does it make a difference where the parade starts and ends?

    Well, if it starts at 8:15 in Frontierland, it won't get to the Town Hall end of Main Street for about 20 minutes, at which point it is already DONE where it started....so depending on what else you want to do when, it CAN make a difference.

    Hi all,
    I have a weather question. What if you buy tickets for a certain night and it rains? Do they refund your money? Do they still have some of the party?
    Hope this hasn't been asked...thanks guys!

    Yeah cuz that would reallllly stink...I mean many of us are building our entire trips around this party---imagine going down there for this, and its cancelled due to rain!! I mean you'd have fun any way but the reason I'm going this particular time is for the Halloween party! Anyone know what happens when it rains? Thanks guys :)

    Since no-one else has chimed in, here is what I have gleaned about this...

    100 % Sure of this:
    - The party won't be canceled because of rain.(Exception would I suppose be a hurricane hitting central FL that closes all the parks.)
    - Some events during the party (fireworks / parade) can be cancelled if it rains badly enough (like monsoon levels), but that doesn't mean you get a refund.


    NOT 100% sure of this:
    -I have read here on the boards that if you decide you don't want to go to the party due to weather, you can go to guest services BEFORE you enter the park and exchange your tickets for a different night (if they are still available on the given night you want). From what I understood, you can't get a refund, only exchange.
    - Once you enter the party, you cannot get a rain-check for the night, no matter how bad it rains.

    Can anyone out there confirm the last bits for me?

    Hi,
    Does anyone know - is it true that in the Villain's mix and mingel show before the Parade that they don't mingle?

    Just that I was thinking of watching that show and then keep the same spot for the Parade but maybe not if this is the case?

    Thanks!

    They were doing some mingling after the show when we were there last year. It was right in front of the castle and they came down off the stage afterward. I'm not sure how long they mingled.

    I believe it's the Villan's Mix and Mingle before HalloWishes that they don't come down for photos.

    Me and my wife are going on the 28th, are adults allowed to get candy or is it frowned upon as poor form?

    It will be the most crowded and likely to sell out. Not sure how the level compares w/ a busy dat at MK, but keep in mind a lot of people may be dispersed better than an average day at MK b/c of all the extra characters out and trick or treating, so i doubt it would be that bad. If it is, atleast you are going on Halloween night, which is awesome! I'd love to do that on the actual day. You'll have a great time, just remember your ponchos.;)

    Brilliant thanks, we'll be dressing up for sure, we don't do Halloween big in the UK so its a good chance to have fun and act like a kid.

    I'm going to use that excuse at Disney as long as I'm still standing :wizard:

    Update: Cinderella's Carriage is now expected to be available (Disney must be following this thread). It's expected to be in the Castle Courtyard.
