Additional Info & Links:
"Touring Plans reservation finder" and it's the first link to come up (it's free to use, I think you just have to make an account with touring plans to use it). You enter the restaurant, the date(s), the meal or specific time frame, your party size, email address and cell phone number. Then you wait. The website will randomly search for open reservations during the dates/times you selected. When one opens up, you'll get a text message with a link to click on to make the reservation. You'll want to click on it right away, so you don't lose it! Most importantly, if you do miss the reservation, you need to log back into the reservation finder website and restart the search. Thanks @Livelovedance :thumbsup2

    2018 Return to Sleepy Hollow Event Thread

    Review of The Return to Sleepy Hallow Event 2017

    My husband and 14 year old son attended this event in late October 2017, Premium Seating. I remember it being cold and rainy and there was a MNSSHP that night too. Below is a photo of the historic Tri-Circle-D Ranch stables at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. The red square represents the black “Return to Sleepy Hallow” back drop that is also decorated with Halloween décor. You stand behind the décor and can take all kinds of photos. There was no Photopass photographer there, at least not that night.


    After photos, you ‘check-in’ on the right-hand side in the building. There will be a table with black goodie bags and CM’s waiting to assist you. The goodie bag is insulated and measures 7” long x 5.5” wide x 5” tall and is filled with a hand full of assorted treats and a mini bottle of water. They also received a lanyard and limited-edition pin.

    What isn’t photographed is the large bin behind the black back drop, there you will find an assortment of bagged popcorn; cheddar cheese, kettle corn and plain. One bag per person.


    Below you can see the chairs and movie screen, first few rows are for Premium Seating and the back rows are for General Seating. I believe a CM will be on hand to direct you. After the movie Premies get to take photos with the Headless Horseman first. EVERYONE gets a photo with the Headless Horseman. You stand in front of the black picket fence and Disney’s Photopass photographers will take your photos, you can take them as well. Yes, it’s the real Headless Horseman on his trusty steed “Daredevil”.


    Also note that this event takes place in a working barn and horses were in their stalls that night. DH & DS said they didn't notice any smells or odor permeating through the room but if you have allergies you might want to take your meds with you :flower3:
