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 🤔
Different schools of thought of course, but I’m a fan of 2 parties. Helps to slow down and not try to cram too much stuff in. Helps to mitigate any bad weather on the first night. Helps to be able to take an assessment of “what did I miss” and adjust for party #2.

You certainly don’t “have” to do 2, but it has some benefits.

We attend two parties every year! I split the park in half One party will cover Fantasyland & Tomorrowland and the Second party we'll do Liberty Square, Frontierland & Adventureland. Makes for a nice relaxing pace without going back & forth! ;)

Are there any characters who continue to meet during the parades? I saw previous posts that Jack Sparrow, The Queen of Hearts, and the Tweedles stopped meeting during the parades. Trying to see if there are any characters we are interested in seeing who might have short waits during a parade. Thank you.

    I have been a party goer for years and I have seen the CM escort line jumpers to the back fo the que several times during Halloween, Christmas and well as outside of the the parties. I have seen it at MK, Epcot and DHS.
    There is no one standing the the middle of a two hour wait that wants to see people jumping into the line up ahead of them. It is just rude.
    I also would not recommend advising people to plan on line jumping, to actively break Disney's rules and guidelines, on a popular fan site such as this. Not only does it spread disinformation but it goes against the rules for the board.
    I apologize if anyone misunderstood my post to mean that I was recommending line jumping during a party or any other time. However, a family of 4 queuing for a character, then dad taking child 1 for a snack or to the restroom and rejoining mom and child 2 in line is not what I would consider line jumping. Mom and child 2 have been holding the family’s spot the entire time. I would absolutely expect someone trying to sneak into a line to be escorted out of the park, but that’s not at all what I was talking about.

    I know it may seem weird but a lot of theme parks do consider it line jumping even if most people do not.

    I'm not saying that you condone line jumping, and I don't have a problem with the scenario you described. I do have a problem when 1 person is in line ahead of me, and suddenly something like 12 people push through the line saying they are joining their party. Or when a large group walks up to the line, but are sprawled out across around 20 yards. The first person gets in line and there are multiple other parties between them and the last person in their group. So then the first person gestures for the rest of the party to join them up front. This happens quite a lot. Wait until you are all together to get in line!

    OK, I got sidetracked haha. What I meant to come on and post is that the exact scenario that you described is on the sign at our local amusement park as an example of cutting the line that gets you kicked out. It's difficult to allow it in some cases and not others, so it's all considered technical line cutting.

    I appreciate the help with my questions! Thanks! Now I am trying to figure out if I need to bring my own straw for my drinks/what that situation is like.

    I took a look at your itinerary did you miss it?
    Yes, I guess I did! I swear sometimes I use the jump to new and it randomly skips a few posts. Or I was walking and reading on my phone and that's never a good idea :sad2: I'll go back and take a look now, thanks!

    Hours have been extended for select dates in September at the Magic Kingdom.

    Sunday, September 21, 2019 – Park closing at 10:00 PM: LINK

    September 28, 2019 – Park closing at 10:00 PM: LINK

    The park originally was set to close at 9:00 PM on those nights.
    Think that the 21st is Saturday because we have a party on the 22nd and we would be sad if they closed at 10:00 lol. Cannot wait until the first reviews of the upcoming parties. Have they indicated if they are making special edition refill mugs like they did last year?

    Apologies are not necessary. I'd like anyone to join me and my family on Aug 30th and Sept 2nd to stand in 2+ hr. lines with my ADHD/ASD son and NOT say a single word, grumble or give a dirty look. Any takers? Seriously, feel free to PM me, I'll make sure you understand how stressful it is for us as parents and what an emotional roller coaster it puts our son through. Obviously that's exactly what you want to see, well then, let the show begin!

    5pm-5:30 Main Street for Merchandise
    5:45-6:05 Space Mt FP 4:55-5:55
    6:10-6:20 Bypass for candy/photos / Pick up SOTMK card Hmmm
    6:25-Possibly check in for the dessert party if we can this early
    6:30-8:45 pirates, teacups, and SM with the overlay, stop at Big Top if needed for merch, any magic shots or TOT trails we pass that don't have ridiculous lines

    8:45 spot for first parade in frontierland on the far side and the end toward LS (will this be early enough? Don't need front row, but kind of need second row with 2 kids)

    9:35 to tomorrowland terrace for dessert party, going though fantasyland and tomorrowland to get there

    9:55 or so - 10:30 - get desserts, watch fireworks

    10:30-12 - do anything we missed, ride some, or leave since we will have been up since 4.

    Just a quick look!
    Hmmm, thanks! I see you switched a few things around, might be good ideas and save some backtracking! Are the SOTMK cards generally available before 7:00? I wasn't sure. I also hope we can check in for the dessert party early, but you had us checking in much less early so it seems more likely we'll be able to. I appreciate you putting the thought into my schedule :thanks:

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean to upset anyone with my tangent on line jumping. I have no problem with families with young kids or special needs doing exactly what you and @Cluelyss were describing, and I don't think very many people do. It also seems that Disney at least unofficially agrees that these scenarios with young kids and families with special needs (and when 1 or 2 people leave or join, as opposed to a whole crowd doing it) are OK, because I've never heard of anyone being even talked to let alone getting into any trouble for it. I always feel for families having trouble with young kids or special needs family members in line, and I definitely don't give dirty looks or grumble, and I try my best to remember that everything is not always as it looks and to not judge. I guess also shouldn't judge the large groups cutting through the line or groups joining the furthest forward family member instead of the last one - but it's just sooo hard. I'll try to be better.

    Oh my goodness, no worries, you are amazing to give the time you do. My DH ( and sometimes my kids) gets annoyed with the time I spend on the computer just on my own posts, and not trying to help everyone else as well. I guess when i hear "mama put your phone down" I should realize I spend too much time on the dis and take a step back :sad1:!
