Thanks for creating this area of the Forum. As a newbie, I'm sure a lot of my questions have already been answered over and over. I've already found out so much vital information from the Boards and now I'm just trying to fine tune. I'll be traveling with dm (senior) and ds (4). We'll be there Oct. 9-16. There seems to be all kinds of interesting things happening such as opening of Mission Space, new fireworks and maybe Mickeys Philharmagic. (sp?) (1) Oct. 9 Epcot closes early so we decided to see Spectromagic that evening instead of Saturday night (which I think will be crowded). Since there's no Illuminations that night do you think that's the better night? We're wanting to get up early Sunday to go to MK so staying for the late show on Saturday really wouldn't work. (2) I want to go to MNSSHP on Oct. 14. Can I pick up my tickets at the will call window anytime or do I have to wait until the 14th?
