We went to MNSSHP last October, the Sunday before Halloween. The best night of our entire vacation!
My three sons went as Huey Dewey and Louie. They were not thrilled about my choice of costumes (I chose them because I wanted the boys to go “together”, I wanted their costumes to be something I couldn’t find at the store and H, D & L get into as much trouble in their adventures as my three do!) They were embaressed as we walked through the lobby of the Poly on the way to the monorail, that is until we passed a group of adult men dressed as the 7 dwarves who went nuts when they saw our boys, calling out to them, high five-ing them and making a big deal of them (Lapu Lapu all around I believe, Ha!). Then they got into the spirit!
The decorations in the park were so neat! So much to take in! We hadn’t ridden HM yet and the boys didn’t know who Madame Leota was yet and were trying to figure out the giant head at the entrance! Lots of characters were out, so many villans.
The trick or treat stations were marked by a giant pumpkin balloons so they were easy to find. The candy was just average stuff but enjoyed none the less. Lines were non existant. There was a dance party near SM for anybody with the energy. We enjoyed the parade, especially the Headless Horseman who rode the parade route just before the parade. We watched from Liberty Square but couldn’t get close enough to hear the story of the Horseman being told. The wait for the parade was the longest and hardest part of the night.
We missed Cinderellas coach near the castle somehow. Still trying to figure out how.
Our boys ages 8, 6 and 4 at the time managed to enjoy the party until the very end. We finished our night by enjoying our laughing place, Splash Mountain at Midnight!
Just yesterday they had a conversation in the truck (which I know DH had to hear) about what they want to dress up as next time they go to Mickey’s Halloween Party! Do you think DH got the hint??? I hope so!
