    Love the thread!!

    CHARACTERS -

    I've seen this character information listed in several threads. Unfortunately, all of that information is old and incorrect!!

    Can you please adjust the first post to reflect the following character information?

    Character Meet and Greet Locations as reported from 2009 *Subject to change due to Fantasyland construction.

    ADVENTURELAND
    *Tarzan, Jane, Terk, Rafiki, Timon, Baloo, and King Louie are located in the Verando next to the Dole Whip stand. It's located on your right as soon as you cross over the bridge to Adventureland and there is a small sign identifying the area. The characters are on a 30 minute rotation, so be sure to visit more than once!

    *Aladdin and Jasmine rotate with Abu and Genie in a covered area to the right before reaching the Magic Carpet attraction.

    *Captain Hook and Mr. Smee greet under a light near the PotC attraction.

    FRONTIERLAND
    *Woody, Jessie and Bullseye rotate among each other inside the Diamond Horseshoe.

    LIBERTY SQUARE
    *Captain Decay will stop for photos on the candy trail next to the Liberty Square Riverboat.

    FANTASYLAND
    *Donald and Daisy appear at the Ariel Grotto dance party.

    *Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs meet just north of the teacups. Get there early- the line gets long and closes quickly.

    *Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet meet at Pooh's Playground.

    *Stepsisters and Lady Tremaine meet in Storytime Garden.

    *Tweedle Dee and Dum, the White Rabbit, and the Queen of Hearts meet next to the Tea Cups.

    TOON TOWN
    *Alice and Mad Hatter meet at the entrance of the candy trail between Toontown and Tommorrowland.

    *Minnie meets in the gazebo at the back of her house.

    *Mickey meets in the garden at the back of his house.

    *Cinderella, Prince Charming, Aurora and Prince Philip meet in County Bounty in the Princess Room.

    *Tinker Bell and her fairy friends also meet in County Bounty in Pixie Hollow.

    TOMORROWLAND
    *Buzz Lightyear meets just outside the exit of his attraction.

    *Goofy, Stitch, Chip, and Dale appear at the Rockettower Stage dance party. at Barnstormer

    VILLAINS MIX AND MINGLE
    The following characters will pose for pictures (no autographs) after the Villains Mix and Mingle in front of the Castle Stage. NOTE: Posing does not follow the show that immediately precedes the fireworks.

    Maleficent (stage left)
    Cruella deVil (center)
    Snow Queen (stage right)
    Queen of Hearts
    Captain Hook
    Jafar
    Frollo

    PICTURES OF CHARACTERS FROM 2009

    Rumored Changes for 2010
    Cinderella's Carriage will not be available.

    Snow and her dwarfs may be relocating to the Fantasyland Skyway area (aka day time stroller parking).

    Pooh and friends may be meeting at the Tour Guides Garden (their current day time location).

    No word on the new locations for the Ariel Grotto dance party or Tremaines' meet and greet location.

    Man, I'm glad we went last year. I'd be devastated if they didn't have the carriage out! (OK, so maybe DEVASTATED is the wrong word, but man I LOVE that photo op!) But they DO need a prettier spot for Snow and her group.

    Maybe they'll add it to MVMCP??? A December Disney bound girl can dream, right?????

    Thanks for compiling all the info!! :thumbsup2 We went to our first MNSSHP last year on 10/1 and had a blast! We never saw the Mickey white ghost photo opp. :confused3. I completely forgot about it until I saw other pictures. I thought I just read it's near The Crystal Palace - is this correct?

    We'll likely go on 10/28 this year and we can't wait!!! :cool1:

    That stinks about the carriage! I hope it isn't true.

    We are thinking of going November 1st. Has anyone been to the last party before? How were the crowds? Is there a good or slim chance of it selling out?

    Three times -- YAY you !! Thanks for tip on the parade in liberty and frontierland - I have added that.

    I am really hoping my DH will be willing to wait in line for a couple characters. At least snow white and the 7 dwarfs. We have done deluxe dining on two different 11 day trips so he is spoiled with the kids meeting them at meals and not waiting in any types of lines.

    Welcome to the list of people who will be attending for the first time :woohoo:


    Your costumes sound really cute -- I am still trying to decided if I will try and talk DH and DS into dressing up for the party. I hope lots of students benefit from you being in a good mood while grading those papers ;)

    You are very welcome - I think this is something a lot of people will be waiting to hear back on.

    I am actually doing something that I hope I don't end up regretting -- We arrive at Disney World at 3:00pm on the 11th, we do not plan on going to a park at all on this day - just relax after the flight from Colorado and enjoy SAB. The next day Oct 12th - my daughter has an 11:00 appt. at BBB so I thought that would be the perfect night to do the party. I kept going back and forth on if we should do the party mid-trip but as we get deeper into the 12 day trip they start dying off :rotfl: So I am hoping the excitment - 2 hour time change and MK will keep them going until midnight - hope I don't regret this choice !

    Same night as us --- only 94 more days :yay:

    I will totally wish you luck on getting your DH to dress up -- please do the same for me :laughing: I will get the link to the previous years photos and link it to the first post very soon. As this is my first party I hope someone else will be able to answer all your questions :wizard:

    :wizard::wizard:

    So glad to read I am not the only one crazy enough to do the party on our first full day at MK. :rotfl:

    I actually removed the tip about Mickey and Minnie being in their houses because I thought I had read a thread about Mickey being evicted from his home because of construction of fantasyland. Is Minnie still in her house do anyone know? I thought the houses were becoming a thing of the past - but maybe it was only temporary. I do think I remember seeing pictures with them both together - but maybe that was DL - I look at so many pictures - my DH says I should try and keep it a surprise to myself - yeah right :rolleyes

    Welcome-- seem like a lot of first timers here :wizard: Hope we can learn tons from the vetern party-goers !

    :banana: The first night -- lucky you !! We will be waiting to here a full report when you return -- take notes please :lmao:

    :wizard: I don't want the summer to be over to fast - but I would like October to get here - doesn't make any sense - I know :upsidedow

    Funny thing - today my DD (6) asked "Will we have to eat all the candy before we get on the plane to come home ?" Could you even imagine :scared1: I told her I would bring an extra suitcase and she starts telling me about security at the airport :rotfl2: - I then explained the liquid thing (again) - I have to say it is hysterical that at 6 she even knows such things about traveling. I really hope we have better luck with the characters - DH is not fond of waiting to meet characters to begin with.

    I think we may see quite a few changes due to construction - but I hope the Cinderella Carriage being gone is not one of them :eek:

    Welcome :grouphug:

    That would be way cool to be there for it on your b-day. I have never been but I would say from looking at pics - with all the villians and ghoulish goblins your son should enjoy himself -- didn't seem to little kidish to me at all


    Thank you so much for giving us a correct list from 2009. It is great how you broke it into the lands - loved it. I have replaced the list on the first post with your info. Do you know are Mickey and Minnie's houses still in operation? I wasn't sure of this. And what would be the reason for not having the carriage ? I think this is a huge draw and could really be a let down for a lot of people. So I hope someone heard it from a bus driver :lmao:

    I'm thinking of going November 1st but get to WDW Oct 23 so I have a few options....is Nov 1st still fun or are the CM's just glad its almost over? Should I pick another day?

    Does anyone know if the fireworks show is the same one shown last year at Disneyland? If it was - that is the BEST fireworks show I have ever seen. On non-paryt nites, do they show the same fireworks or is it exclusive to the party?

    We went on Nov 1st a couple years ago and had a blast. The one and only time I went and man did we get the candy. It wasn't too busy IMO... And still had all the feel of Halloween Night!!

    We are going September 30th, and we were so happy to read about the Military Discount tickets to MNSSHP! It will save a lot of money!!!

    My tip for readers: Florida is hot, even at night. If you wear a lot of fabric over your regular clothes, you might be sweating like a you-know-what! Carefully think out your costumes. :)

    I have read from a few other people who attended on Nov.1st that the party was awesome. The crowd was almost nothing and the candy was plentiful -- I mean at that point what else they going to do but give it away :banana:

    I watched the halloween fireworks of Disneyland via youtube -- those fireworks were unreal :goodvibes But unfortunatly when I watched the ones posted on youtube of DW there was no big talking moon thing (not sure what to call that) and they did not seem as good to me. I did however read they got awesome feedback at DL so hopefully they will add this to DW (I can Dream !)
    On the calendar of events for non-party nights at 9:00 "SpectroMagic" Parade and at 10:00 the fireworks are listed as Wishes™ Nighttime Spectacular. On the days of the party the park closes to guests who are not attending MNSSHP without any parade or fireworks.

    No problem!! I know that other list has circulated a lot of threads (for a couple of years), so thank you for taking the time to update the first post!!

    The carriage info is very much a rumor, but I'm a person that likes to plan for the worse and prefer to be informed of possible changes. Let's hope it doesn't pan out.

    However, Snow and her dwarfs have to move as their former location is blocked by a giant wall. I think the Fantasyland Skyway is a beautiful option (it's the location Snow meets at during MVMCP), but then there is no where for the carriage to go.

    As for Toon Town, it's still up and operational and all indicators point to Toon Town staying in place through 2010. Those meet and greets are expected to stay at the houses this year but next year (2011) they will certainly be different.

    Joining the list of 1st timers and those who are going on Oct 28th!! Can't wait. We've been to MVMCP and really enjoyed that and have only heard great things about MNSSHP!! I've read/heard elsewhere that the party that has typical sold out in the past is Halloween night and maybe some others close to Halloween or weekends close to Halloween. People who can do trips just for the party will typical do Halloween night or the weekends.

    Thanks for creating the thread. Can't wait to start hearing about the first parties!
