Thanks! The lighting if a little off, and I didn't have the Star Wars ears turned on (they light up! They're the ones with the black background) and it's really hard to fit something with corners into the circle avatar! LOL!WOW!!!! I love it! Thank you so much!
Wait, what?! Staying at POR in October - I didn't know there were alcoholic beignets anywhere! We walked to French Quarter last year to get beignets, and the pumpkin spice flavor was amazing. I preferred the pumpkin spice over the regular beignets.But the alcohol ones are at Riverside - that's where we'll be walking to...
How are the ear headbands attached to the frames?Thanks! The lighting if a little off, and I didn't have the Star Wars ears turned on (they light up! They're the ones with the black background) and it's really hard to fit something with corners into the circle avatar! LOL!
If anyone has any questions on how I did it, I'd be happy to share. I couldn't stand just having them laying around so I found a way to display them that worked for me. I just take off any pair I plan to take on my trip. Right now the Coco ones (top, second from left) are packed for the Halloween party!
That was the tricky part..... Initially I just put them in the shadow boxes with the glass on the front, but I found that it squished some of the ears that were wider (front to back) and it wasn't convenient to take them out. I like to use my ears on our trips and I didn't want to lock them up! So I took the glass off and fashioned hooks out of large-gage jewelry wire that go through a small hole in the background color paper and glued onto the back of the frame. That made them sturdy and I was able to make the hooks according to the width (front to back) of the specific set of ears. You cant really see the hooks unless you get up close to them. And best of all, I can still easily use the ears by just lifting them off the hooks.How are the ear headbands attached to the frames?
If you don't have a magic band, you will get a plastic card for your ticket. It is the same as the hard tickets that are issued for regular park tickets. You'd use the card to tap into the park as well as for any fastpasses you might book for the 4pm-6pm timeframe before the party.I have a fair amount of questions I was hoping I could get some help with. This will be the first time I have gone in a long time, back before magic band, mobile ordering, and fast pass had changed. Also it will be first time at a party there ever.
First off, if you don't have a magic band and you are only coming to the Halloween party, do they give you an rfid chip? And what do they look like if so?
Next, I heard disney got rid of the old straws for drinks, do they have alternative ones (and if so are the paper, and how well do they work), or just ones you could buy? It looked like the pictures of the last party had cool headless horseman straws you could buy, anything like that this year?
Also, which souvenirs would you recommend. I was thinking that it may be worth scrounging up some money to get the Mickey's pants sundae and the skippers Canteen cup before the party, but that and the Halloween treats seems like it may add up the price quickly. And the dice in that Snake Eyes drink seem great. (Also, I don't know how I feel about going to the Canteen just for the drink, and right before the party...)
And would it be worth it to try to get the freebie souvenirs like the celebration button (saying first party or attending alone) or the Pirate Adventure Treasures of 7 seas map and cards?
Sorry for the question overload and thanks for any help.
Arrive 3pm via APOK, here is my attempt to post our plan for the party this Friday night, Aug 16th. I've never tried to write thing down with times like this, so sorry if it's a little rough. I was just wondering what people think.
What do you think?
I did two parties a few days apart last year. One of our parties ended up raining a lot, so it was nice to have a second chance to do some of the things we missed the first time. However, a lot of our enjoyment of the party is the parade/fireworks/show, so it wasn't as special seeing them so close together and the second party wasn't as fun as the first one because of that. If rides/characters were more important to me, I would consider a second party again, but they're not so I probably wouldn't. If riding rides is something you want to spend a lot of party time doing and/or you have a long list of characters you want to meet (I only had three meets I wanted to do), I'd definitely recommend a second party!Anyone ever do 2 parties in one trip? We had considered adding a dessert party to our MNSSHP night but it’s only about $50 more to just do a second party
