Yes, it was open - at least until the weather turned. We rode it around 8:15.It was my understanding that Jungle Cruise was closed during MNSSHP. I noticed it had a wait time in MDE that night. Now I'm looking at the photo of the little book they hand out and it has JC listed under Adventureland as one of the available attractions. Does anyone know if it was open?
The videos had families going through that I saw. So Im thinking it was DAS like another poster mentioned.Bloggers and members of the media are allowed to use Lightening Lanes at the first party. So there's no way to know if they'll be open to regular folks from that party.
I saw one where there was photo pass for the Hocus Pocus 2 one but that was the only one.None of the reports I saw said there were photo pass or even CM's there - which really stinks for us SOLO people!!
I have seen reference to this, but must have missed details. What are "walk in" photo ops?
How long are the waits usually to meet Minnie, goofy, and stitch? Those are the only ones I see us waiting for with our 2 yo. I think he would also like Pooh but I know that one can get long
Thanks! Our ds really doesn’t do well with lines longer than 10-15 minutes so we may have to skip character meets this year and focus on some other things. But if the lines look short we’ll try them outThere's a post a little while back that said an hour for Stitch on the first night.
I met Minnie and Goofy on a sold out party back in 2017 and these weren't too bad, I just referred to them as short waits which I think is 30mins or less, Donald and Daisy took 1 hour although others had experienced shorter. I met Mickey during the fireworks, went in as they started, came out after they finished.
I got in line for Pooh and co after 7pm as I had stopped to get popcorn buckets so if you get in line early (not sure what time they are starting to meet this year, something tells me maybe 6:45pm might be a good time to get in line for them - hopefully someone else can chime in with better advice there. I looked back at photos I have kept and I have a photo of the popcorn bucket at 7pm and a photo of me passing the Queen of Hearts at 7:41pm so I must have only been in the queue 40 minutes.
Hopefully if you are not going for a few parties yet, the info that comes in the next few will give you a clearer picture.
gotcha, thanks!!I saw one where there was photo pass for the Hocus Pocus 2 one but that was the only one.

On the recent Tim Tracker live stream, someone asked about using Genie+ and they said that they had asked if it was available, since they saw individuals in the Lightning Lane, and I believe the cast members said it’s not available. As others have said, they concluded it to be used for the guests using DASSo is Genie Plus active during the party? I saw videos of people going through the Lightning Lane entrances sometimes?
He is ADORABLE!!Ok everyone we’re going to the
Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party - August 30, 2022
I’m super excited! Here’s what I want to get done tell me if I can get this all in:
I got a park reservation for that day anyway as I’m an annual pass holder so I’m going to try and do all the rides prior to the

Not necessarily packed, but definitely much more crowded then earlier in the day. There will be a steady stream of people coming in once 4pm hits.What are crowds normally like in the 4-6pm timeframe? We’ll be in MK in the late afternoon on a party day, without party tix (by necessity - only time we could get Bibbidi Bobbidi reservations) and wondering if it’ll be packed between people entering for the party and day guests who haven’t left yet?
Thanks just trying to squeeze it in. Only going to MK for the party
Same here - 9/5 and was shocked it was sold out. Still holding out hope that "sell out" is way less than the "sell outs" of 2019... the next few August parties should give us a better picture. So excited!!!So how bad are sold out parties? It’s been a really long time since I went to MNSSHP, back when they were fairly quiet and you could walk onto rides. I bought tix for my sisters and I for 9/5 thinking it was so early (September) and Labor Day so wouldn’t be all that busy. But now seeing it’s sold out.
It’s hard to say. We’ve been to sold out and not sold out parties over the years.So how bad are sold out parties?

Pretty sure that's new. That's our date, so I've been watching and was weirdly proud of it for holding out longer than the rest of August.I see 8/30 is sold out now. Is that new?
