    Hello again, I have reservations in October for the Halloween/Fall season and was wondering if I should purchase just one night of MNSSHP event tickets or two nights. Will my daughter and I be able to partake of everything in one night???

    Hi Beth, That's a very interesting question, and one that I have not seen asked before. The answer depends on several things, notably the age of your daughter and what you'd like to see/do at the party. If your daughter is young, say less than 10 or 11 years old, there's a decent chance that she won't make it staying up until midnight for the entire party. This means that if you call it a night even an hour early (heading back to the room at 11:00 pm), then you'll have 20% less time to take in all the events. This could leave you in a significant time crunch if you want to do everything. In my experience, the biggest time consumers at the Magic Kingdom evening parties are the character greetings. At the Hallowwen party, there are many special characters out (villains) and the regular characters (Mickey, etc) have on special costumes. This makes the party character greetings VERY popular. Typical wait times are an hour, or more, for each character. If you want to get photos with even two of the Halloween characters, you won't have time for much else. So, if you want to watch the parade and fireworks, do a little trick or treating, and go on 3-4 rides, you'll be fine with one night of tickets. If you want to add in character greetings, two nights might make more sense. Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if we can provide additional assistance.
