    We went last night (the 21st) and had a blast! A few notes...

    -I'm not sure what everyone is talking about with Space Mountain - it was on the map I received when we arrived and was running all night.. usually with a 5-10 minute wait.

    -Lots of characters! We waited less than 15 minutes for the Princesses with their Princes, and less than that for everyone else.

    -Yes there IS free face painting in Toontown.. I know this because it had a line around the block with a FREE FACEPAINTING sign out in front of the booth.

    Can't wait; we'll be going to our first party on the Oct. 17. I would like to have a balance of seeing characters, riding rides, trick or treating and of course seeing the parade and fireworks. We're traveling with a 12 year old boy and it's his first time to Disney. Do you have any suggestions of a schedule to follow for the night. The only must is a pic with the 7 dwarfs. So we're planning on being in line by 6:30. pirate:

    What time did you go by to see them?? I'll be there (solo!) next Thurs., 9/30.

    I'm not sure how I'm going to attack my character stalking plan... My must sees are 7 Dwarves, Hag, Princes/Princesses and although not a character, Cinderella's Carriage.

    Went to the party last night for first time! Loved it.

    Re the popcorn buckets. The headless horseman ones might be available all the time. The souvenir one is a ghost Mickey. Lots of signs saying he was souvenir. $7.75 with popcorn. I'll post a pic when I'm back home if one hasn't been

    Sorry if this was already mentioned. I missed it if so!

    There's discussion about Space Mountain because last week's parties (definitely 9/14) did not list it on the map. The scanned map posted by wdwinfo shows that too. (http://www.wdwinfo.com/holidays/photos/mnsshp-map2.htm). When I first picked up the map for 9/14 it seemed SM would be closed. But it definitely was open despite what the map said.

    Sounds like they may have already reprinted the corrected map with Space Mountain listed. Oopsie!

    Hag was awesome. We just wandered by and she had no line. My DD7 had a Snow White pen, so she made a big deal about that!

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't seem to find specific information on the dance parties. Where is the Toy Story dance party? Does it go on all night, or by a certain schedule? I've tried reading everything I can find, but I'm a bit overwhelmed.

    I believe the Toy Story Dance Party is in Frontierland at the Diamond Horseshoe Revue Theater

    I'm not a pro but I have heard that on the 31st you would need to stake out a viewing spot for the first parade an hour before start time - or maybe even 90 minutes. I would suggest Frontierland through Liberty Square as an alternative to Main Street.

    We will be there on Halloween too! Can't wait for the party...:yay:

    We went to see the princesses with a 15 min wait as soon as we finished dinner.. maybe around 7:30 or so?

    We also waited less than 10 or 15 minutes to get all 7 dwarfs.. we happened to walk over and check after the last villians show at 11:15, figuring they'd be gone, but they were just lining up for the last set and we got in line about 5 minutes before they closed it! Turned out perfectly! After that, we went to get a pic with the carriage and that was not even 5 minutes. I thought it was funny we did that just before midnight.. half expected it to turn back into a pumpkin :rotfl:

    I'm wondering if there's anyone who attended the Sept 18 party that could help me with a quick question?

    We're going to our first ever MNSSHP this Saturday, Sept 25. We're two adults who's primary focus is the parade and HalloWishes (plus the HM enhanced photos and Cinderella's carriage).

    I was wondering how early we should find a spot for the parade and HalloWishes? The forecast is sketchy, so I want to try for both parades (not risk waiting for the second and have weather be an issue).

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    I am just wondering how late the 7 dwarfs are out, and if its better to wait until later in the night to see them or try to get in line for the first set (like at 6:30 or earlier). I don't want to spend a ton of time in line, but it seems that they are very popular. We are going on Oct 1st....yay!

    I'm not sure if this is a MNSSHP question but I read that during the party all the princesses are in the room and you wait in one line and you get to meet all of them. My question is during a regular day at the magic kingdom, is it the same way for the princesses or are there different times for the different princesses. If we could see them prior to the party that would save us time, We know that the princes are with them during the party but we are really after the princesses. If anyone has any information on this topic we would really appreciate it, Thanks.
