Hi and to the party! This thread is pretty easy to read and contains so much information especially on the MAIN pages, thanks for taking the time, YOU ROCK! Let's dig in... When: Thursday, October 4th / Who: DA, DN12, and DN10 3:30-4:15 Arrive at MK & Go thru bypass OR .... Question: Would you recommend us arriving before the 4 o'clock rush and getting our bands inside at another location? We normally go in early using our park ticket but last year many reported the wristband locations inside the park did not release the party bands until 4pm even though party guests were allowed in at 3:45. It's a gamble and if Disney continues this practice this year I wouldn't do it, there would be no advantage. 4:15-5:30 Jack and Sally Tag Team: DA will get Specialty Treats - We still do not have confirmation what time the Specialty Treats will be sold however Anytime Treats will be available. 5:30-6:00 FP+ 6:00-9:30 Rides, Characters and Trick or Treating starting at 7pm. The main entertainment is where I get caught up and talk myself in circles and I'm a bit lost. I have questions. It really depends on where you'll be when the night time entertainment begins. Are you going to be at Tomorrowland or Adventureland? This easy breezy 6:00-9:30 time frame you've allotted without direction is what's causing the confusion and potentially could have you zigzagging through the parks which I don't recommend. What I do recommend is focusing on specific locations for; rides, characters and Trick or Treating. We know you'll be at Liberty Square for Jack & Sally, hopefully you'll be able to get a FP ride close by, then move your way to another character scheduled to come out at 7pm like Queen of Hearts, Minnie or Donald & Daisy, use Tag Team and allow the kids to go on rides that are close by and within you line of sight if needed. 12:00: Hocus Pocus Show We're not worried about magic shots. I'd like to grab a SotMK card, but it's not vital. We've never actually played. If I wanted to grab one, does anyone have a suggestion on when I should make that happen? This can be obtained after the HP show at Guest Relations in City Hall or we can work this in when you get your plans more defined. @Cluelyss recommends getting them as soon as you walk in the park via bypass.
