We are taking a 4 day trip 10-18 - 10-21. It will just be my hubby and I. He has never been to WDW, I went once, 20 years ago. We are DL vets. Our arrival day we won't be getting to a park until about noon so we were thinking about doing HS but now I'm wondering if we should do MNSSHP instead. We are trying to save money and won't be doing park hoppers so it's either 4 day, single park tickets or 3 day tickets with MNSSHP on the first day. I need help deciding which day to go to MK and whether to make it a party day. There is only one non-MNSSHP date when we are there. It's a Saturday. I've been reading that non party days are extra crowded (touring plans predicts a 7). We'd like to see the fireworks and that's the only day they show if we don't go to the party. Our other option is not to see the fireworks and go on a party day when they close at 6 pm. Touring plans has Friday being a 3 for crowds which sounds amazing. How great are the fireworks? Do other night shows at other parks compare if we were to see those on the nights we are at those parks instead? If we do MNSSHP, what time can we get into the parks? Are there some not to miss rides that are not available? Can we use FP+? How long are lines typically for HM, PP, and mine train? What choice would you make? Thanks!!
