Good morning. Thanks for the links. Janet and I never missed a episode of Zorro when we were growing up. I was not at Disneyland for Zorro days. It was great fun to see clips of the Viewliner and Autopia(without the center rail). Always great to see Thru The Mirror. Great, Great movie - Tealtownfan

Hi Teal! Glad this brought back fond memories! I was super happy to find that video on Zorro at DL! Sounds like not too many people actually got to see him in the park! - Duchess_SMK 3525.8 #10 4:12PM

the only dish out of these that was not good at all was the cheese fondue. T love cheese and the combo of cheeses with the wine they used was just not good on my palate...the Pretzel sasuage was VERY VERY Good, tons of flavor and the bread was soft and moist..The Canoli was good but the ricotta cheese I felt was to hard and not light and fluffy like I like my ricotta but the shell and chocolate were good....The Prosciutto was EXCELLENT...it was actually at the Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar and was a nice little nook where you can get a break from the crowds and enjoy some good Italian wines, meats and cheeses - Dave

Tutto gusto was one of the things on my list that we didn't make it it, glad to hear it was good. It's a must for me next trip - Pixarprincess 531.5 #220 9:50PM
For those that went to the party last night; how was it? What were the crowds like? What was the coolest character you saw? And how did wristband distribution work; did the people that were in the park during the day have to go out and go to a ticket booth to get it and then go back in?
Sorry for all the question, but this is my first year doing the Halloween party.
We were there last night- early entry starts at 4pm, but it was super crowded when we arrived at 5pm. You have a special entrance to go through at the gates- then you get a wristband right there and a small goodie bag for candy. Once it's 7pm- you can't get on any rides or walk through parts of the park without a wristband. The rides were practically all walk-ons or less than 20 minute waits! Trick or treat lines were long- but moved fast. Dance parties were fun with variety of music. Fireworks were incredible! Don't miss them! Didn't see the parade or many characters walking around, but then we weren't looking for them either. Well worth the ticket price! Dress up- everyone does! Have fun! - princessSue

There were crowds but the candy stations moved very quickly. Some thrill attractions had longer waits (30-40 minutes) while others were walk on. You could get a wristband in the park in Frontierland, where the pin traders use to be. The far right main entry gates were reserved for party goers. Either provided bags and wristbands. The villains on Main Street were very cool but there was a plethora of characters for every taste. Have a great time! - minigirl1156

Like what they said, it was crowded during the mix in time (which is typical). The thing I noticed was the conjested areas around the ROA, having two treat trails, POTC and Mansion being in the same area, causing a lot of traffic. But other than that, the crowds were a lot less after fireworks and the second parade - BaseballMickey_CM
