So excited for the Halloween party this Friday. This is a first for us. Any recommendations? Rides, trick or treating, fireworks? Thanks.
My honest opinion is that the fireworks show is the best I have ever seen at Disney! We are some of the crazy ones that camp out an hour before the show, front and center of the castle to get the sweet spot. We eat our dinner sitting there picnic style and watch the light show on the castle that's synced to the music playing on Main Street. It is absolutely worth seeing. Being able to see it on Main Street means you get to see Zero flying over the castle where Tinkerbell normally does. There are some other lovely surprises that go with the fireworks. The trick or treat stations are all over the park. We go to a station, go on some of the attractions in the area and go to the next set of stations and ride attractions there, going throughout the park like that. The lines are very often short, if not walk on for so many things. There is time to do a lot. We've gone numberous times and always feel like we got to do enough and see enough and that it was worth the money. We never have to buy candy for the trick or treaters because we go more than once LOL - Autoalice   157.6 #2454 9-23-12 9:49PM Like(3)  Reply
So there is plenty of time to do everything without rushing around? - Pudgeman  618.6 #276 9-23-12 10:00PM
We've never felt too rushed and we're getting around with 3 kids plus stroller etc. Even the year we had one of the kids in a wheel chair with a broken ankle we got around. Like I said, the lines are a lot shorter, if there at all. Space Mountain was a walk on. My husband went on with the 2 older kids then I walked right back in with them and rode it myself. Indy they would go on and circle right back in a couple times while I sat with the youngest. We like weekdays, I don't know if that makes a difference. But I remember doing at least one non-weekday and it still wasn't bad. - Autoalice  157.6 #2454 9-23-12 10:05PM
The candy lines are often the longest lines in the park but there are enough stations and they give you good fistfuls that you don't have to hit every single one to feel like you got enough. - Autoalice  157.6 #2454 9-23-12 10:09PM
Great information here! Thanks! Now I am even more Excited for our trip to Mickey's Halloween Party! - MeridaFan  3404.9 #27 9-24-12 8:37PM
I went to it last year for the 1st time and will be there on Friday too. Its alot of fun, great parade and fireworks show. The kids had a great time at the Hub dancing with Buzz and the green soldiers. They do give out ALOT of candy but can also opt for a healthy choice. We only went to about 4-5 candy station and felt that was enough for us. : ) Have fun! - firemomof2   130.6 #2870 9-23-12 9:39PM Like(1)  Reply
Was it busy for the parade and fireworks? - Pudgeman  618.6 #276 9-23-12 9:42PM
What is the healthy choice? - PrincessKristin  780.2 #200 9-23-12 9:48PM
We went on Halloween last year, it was very busy for fireworks. If you can wait until you are ready to stake a spot to eat. It's a good time to grab food, sit and wait - Pixarprincess  539.3 #324 9-23-12 9:49PM
Healthy choices vary, carrots, apple chips etc - Pixarprincess  539.3 #324 9-23-12 9:49PM
It wasn't any more busy than when you watch the fireworks. The healthy choice options were fresh apples, oranges and those dehydrated apples they sell at the fruit stands. My son who is 4, loves those dried apples so he was stocked up! Lol! - firemomof2  130.6 #2870 9-23-12 10:42PM

I've heard it is a great firework show. Is Main Street the best place to watch and is it busy enough you have to stake out a spot really early? - Pudgeman   618.6 #276 9-23-12 9:31PM Like  Reply
Its not too hard to find a good spot for the fireworks - DisneyMe2Death  872.3 #174 9-23-12 9:43PM
I'll be there too! A first for me and I'm crossing my fingers for no crowds. Hope you have a great time! - Pollyanna702   225.7 #1527 9-23-12 9:32PM Like  Reply
I hope the crowds are light where it is so early still. - Pudgeman  618.6 #276 9-23-12 9:50PM
Are many adults dressing up? I want to be able to do rides without a big costume but my wife wants us to dress up. - Pudgeman   618.6 #276 9-23-12 9:39PM Like  Reply

I am an adult and plan on wearing a costume. I just figured out one that is easy to maneuver in. - howdyhowdyhowdy  97.9 #3417 9-23-12 10:08PM

if your costume involves a skirt wear shorts under, and make lots of fun memories. 😃 - howdyhowdyhowdy  97.9 #3417 9-23-12 11:47PM
I haven't braved wearing a skirt or dress to Disneyland yet lol I like my jeans. Luckily I was able to incorporate that into my costume :) - GodOfWine  484.7 #376 9-24-12 6:51PM
