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)!

Remember: adults can trick-or-treat too! - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 10:35PM
Thanks for the info! & Congrats to Duffy on his DL premiere!!! :) - MisFit.Mouse  687.9 #288 9:34PM
I believe that adults who wish to wear costumes must change into them when they enter the park for the event. Regarding fast passes, I don't know. - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 9:44PM
Yup, you can wear your costume during the mix-in time. I called DL and double checked. - Polkadobo  384.7 #583 9:45PM

Thank you so so much for all the info. Really helps me since this year will be my first time going. Thank you again! - HereSnipey_Snipey  265.5 #1202 11:20PM
thanks BBM for all this helpful info! as far as FastPasses go, they were not being used during Mickey's Halloween Party last year (at least not the night i went, 10/22/10) and i believe the FPs end at the time that the park closes to regular day guests, so 7pm, including both Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy and Haunted Mansion Holiday. i think the reasoning is that there are less guests in the park at the time than a normal day, and early entrance (mix-in time) should allow opportunities to experience the non-exclusive attractions before the party starts so as to enjoy the other MHP-exclusive offerings (treats, parade, fireworks, characters, dance clubs, etc.) during the party. don't know if it will be the same this year - brian!  283.6 #1029 3:06AM

No, you don't have to have a costume to go. My husband and I didn't wear one last year. A lot of people didn't that were there. But it is more fun ;) - Autoalice  161.4 #2545 7:48PM

Since there is a parade at 8:30, many guests just stayed in the same place where they were for the parade. Some started saving seats up to an hour before. - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 2:52PM
Thank you! We were thinking about an hour before, figure we can sit the kids down with some food, always helps kill time ;) Do they not have an area for wheelchairs? Last year we were there with a wheelchair because my son was in a cast and we could not find any. He had a very hard time seeing. This year we're there with another family member that can not stand at all for the show. - Autoalice  161.4 #2545 3:14PM
