    Our family is local, but this will be our first time to MNSSHP. We're excited to finally be able to do this, but we are concerned that our son with food allergies won't be able to trick or treat in the park. What kind/types of candy do they hand out?

    Congratulations on getting to attend Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party, Lauri!  It truly is a fabulous event and a lot of fun for guests of all ages.  As for the candy handed out at the party, it's a very similar assortment as you'd get trick-or-treating in the neighborhood on Halloween.  In the past, we've stuffed our bags with Smarties, Tootsie Rolls, Jolly Ranchers, Laffy Taffy and candy corn.  I can't possibly name everything; many of the candies we receive along the way are not terribly familiar to me.  There is a fair amount of hard and/or chewy candy, but very little chocolate.

    I assume you are very thorough in checking your son's candy bag for safety reasons, especially because of his allergies.  Would it be possible for you to sneak in a few allergy-safe treats during those "spot checks"?  I don't pretend to know anything about food allergies, but with as wide a variety as you'll likely receive in your bag, I would think he'd be able to eat some of it.  But sneaking in a few extras would guarantee he'd have something to snack on!  Good luck!
