MICKEY'S Halloween Party 2011- So here's what you can expect. Some of these things are the same from last year and some are new. Disneyland Park will be open like a normal day for guests. Those with a Mickey's Halloween Party ticket can enter the park up to 3 hours prior to the event start. When a guest with a Mickey's Halloween Party ticket enters the park, they will be given three things : 1) a colored wristband (this MUST be worn all night), 2) a Mickey's Halloween Party Trick-or-Treat bag and 3) a special edition Mickey's Halloween Party Park Map (these will be different than the regular Halloween Time one). Also, if you are in the park during the regular day, you can also pick up those three items at the Plaza Gardens. During this time, in the park, there will be guests that are there for the regular day and those with the Mickey's Halloween Party ticket, which will be called the mix-in time. Those who do not have a wristband will be asked to leave the park right around 7pm. If they would like to purchase a Mickey's Halloween Party ticket, they can go to the Plaza Gardens and they can purchase them there. ATTRACTIONS- every attraction will be open, with the exception of POTC, the Monorail and IASW (closing 10/23 for Christmas overlay). The feature attractions will be Haunted Mansion Holiday and Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy. STORES: all of the stores will be open like usual with Main Street closing one hour after park closing. PARADE: Mickey's Halloween Cavalcade will march down at 8:30pm and 10:30pm, following the normal parade route. FIREWORKS: the very popular and highly praised Halloween Screams Fireworks will light up the sky at 9:30pm. CHARACTERS- For the event, there will be 11 character meet and greet locations, featuring the Disney Villains by IASW, Phineas and Ferb (and maybe a surprise) at the Plaza Gardens (their DL premiere), Captain Hook, Peter Pan, Mr. Smee and Captain Jack near the Ferry Boat Landing,, Aladdin and Jasmine at Aladdin's Oasis and Duffy on Main Street USA (his DL premiere). FOOD: Most restaurants and quick-service restaurants will be open. Cafe Orleans will be featuring a special menu and desserts. ENTERTAINMENT- there will be two dance clubs, one named Buzz Lightyear Intergalactic Space Jam, located at TLT, and the new Piratepalooza at Rancho Del Zocalo in Frontierland (this one replaced the one that was at the French Market). Also, check out all of the Halloween decor featuring the special Ghost Mickeys and the Live Scarecrows in the Hub area. And, TREATS: there will a total of 13 Trick-or-Treat trails scattered around the park (with the exception of ToonTown). Here guests will have the opportunity to have a unique trick-or-treat experience. A tip: to find the start of the trail, look for the giant while Mickey ghost. Note regarding costumes, every guest's eyes must be visible at all times. And, please, if you see any guest that is wearing a costume that is considered inappropriate for this family event, please notify a CM and/or a security CM immediately. We truly want our guests to get into the Halloween spirit the Disney way. Well, I think I covered everything and I hope this helps everyone and Happy Halloween!! (And DCA will close at 10pm) ~Remaining dates: October 31 (Halloween night)!

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com
unFORECAST for the month of April 2016 Spring Break traffic continues to make the Parks busy, however, we've made it past the heaviest part of Spring Break. Expect strong crowd levels through April 11th, and then things should slow down a bit. Look for crowds to pick up again at the end of the month and through May. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), through April 11, 2015, crowds averaged in the low 80s (approx 80% capacity), then the Crowd Index dipped into the 60s, until later in the month when the Crowd Index rose to the 70s. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Apr 4, 2016 3:24PM
