    I heard a rumor that last year, party guests were led through the Main Street bypass and given large treat bags instead of the small ones in previous years. Does anyone know if this is normal for all the parties? Is anyone going to the party on Friday that could confirm or debunk this rumor?

      I was there last year — and the answer is “yes, sort of”. When we arrived, we were guided through the bypass and got the normal-sized trick or treat bag, but then got a large package of treats as the first trick or treat station of the night. We still were able to go around for trick or treating, but we did remove the large package we got to make more room for candy at the ‘regular’ trick or treat locations.

        Thanks for the confirmation, Julia! My father-in-law is going to be so excited if we have a similar experience at this year’s party. 🙂

    Hi there! I would like your opinion on how I should tour the park during MNSSHP. I am going on Sep 1st, arriving at Magic Kingdom at 4pm. Going for the rides, not characters meet and greet. Should I hit Tomorrowland first and tour counter-clockwise? Or hit Adventureland first and tour clockwise? Appreciate your input! ☺️

      Fab, I went to MNSSHP in 2015 and MVMCP in 2016. In both experiences, I only saw noticeable wait times for headliners (Mine Train) or slow loaders (Astro Orbiter), and even then we’re talking maybe 30 minutes.. I don’t know that there is an “optimized” touring plan for hard ticket events, especially when you go early in the season. Last year we completed all the rides we wanted to experience well before the second parade. That said, with Splash Mtn closed this year, the bigger attractions are on the right side so you might want to start in Adventureland so you aren’t stuck in line with day guests on Mine Train, Space Mtn, etc.

        Hi Craig, great to hear you were able to do most of the rides during the party! I believe I will change my original plan, I got some fastpasses from 4-7pm starting in Tomorrowland (buzz, space mountain and tom. Speedway) – but as expected, I couldn’t get mine train. Bummer Splash mountain will be closed that day! My son was super excited to ride it for the first time… Hopefully we can ride most of the park between 4pm and 12am! With stops for some dole whip, turkey leg and nutella waffle! Lol

          I couldn’t have answered this question better myself! Thank you for helping Fab Michigan out.


          If the attractions are your main focus, you should have no problem experiencing the rides you want. Good plan to get there at 4pm. You should have plenty of time!

          Great question!

            I am finishing my new touring plan today! First time going to the Halloween party, excited that the rides are not going to have long lines! Thanks

    Last year we were in the park about 4pm and noticed ride queues were huge early on but later in the night everything was walk-up, no queue!

      Glad to hear that Sue! I will try some fastpasses from 4-7pm to speed up the afternoon lines and enjoy the rest later in the night! Thanks
