    Took your advice-we did chg our Kona res on 10/6 earlr in order to get most of rides before MNSSHP begins. Since it is 1st time @ this event,what can we expect as far as crowds? Will party likely be super crowded?Tough to find a spot @ parade?

    Hi, Rosa!  Glad to hear you were able to move your reservation at Kona Cafe!  This will give you even more time to enjoy Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party!

    I was just MNSSHP this past weekend with the Moms Panel, and the crowds were super manageable!  There seemed to be plenty of great spots for viewing the parade, but plan to find your place at least one-half hour prior to the parade.   For an even smaller crowd, watch the second parade of the evening - this is always less crowded.   The parade route runs from the back of the park heading toward the main train station and ends by the fire station in the very front of the park.

    For attractions, you should be able to get on quite  a few!  I find that attending the Halloween Party earlier in the month, it just does not seem that busy.   The closer to Halloween, the larger the crowds become (in fact, MNSSHP is sold out for October 31!)  We were there on Friday, and walked right on the Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder Mountain, and Pirates of the Caribbean.

    Cast members will give you a wristband when you enter, and you will be asked throughout the evening to show it.   You will also be given a bag to collect your Trick-or-Treat goodies!    Have a super time and check out the Haunted Mansion part of the parade - this was my absolute favorite!   Enjoy!
