Our haul from tonight!

We did not get as much as in years past.  We got more in Toon Town in 1 hour than we did throughout the whole park.  They always have my kids candy and then when I came up they always tried to give me carrots or apples.  When I politely said no and asked for candy they would only give me one piece. - 1Princess3Princes  558.8 #346 7:40AM
Interesting... Whe we went on the 25th my hubby gave his costume to our son (surprised us by coming home on leave).  So he didn't have a costume. He said the CMs wouldn't give him candy either. In fact, he watched one act like he was giving him 2 pieces, and Then palmed one. Hubs is in a mobility scooter, so he is at the candy cart level and he can see.  I don't know if they have rules or not. I was oblivious to it all.  - Sugarbuzz  227.7 #1592 8:07AM
Wow, I had no costume and the only thing I did notice was I would get a few pieces left than my kids. I did ask for more candy(skittles, nerds, etc) because we were getting mostly chocolate, and cm's were really nice about it. You still got a pretty good size haul though.  - MARVELus  197.2 #1975 8:30AM
Very weird, we hauled 60lbs of candy and saw for us that we barely got any carrots,apples,pretzels or graham crackers. It was a bit of a battle to get those. Most cms have me a fair amount of candy although some as soon they saw me adult dropped the candy and gave me one, that's why we keep going around the trails multiple times - pikarich  4745.9 #24 8:14AM
One CM went to give my hubby carrots and he politely said no carrots and asked for candy and she refused to give him candy! He was stunned!! Each of my kids got 3-4 pieces at each stop and we got 1-2 only. - 1Princess3Princes  558.8 #346 1:14PM
thats an excessive amount of candy😳 - DarthFairy  247.5 #1341 10:53AM

We did everything but the character  lines except for capt American  we have gotten all the characters in years past. We got a ton of candy and rode all the rides we wanted.  About an hour after the party starts the line are almost walking even space mnt and Nemo on stayed at a 10 minute wait. - pikarich  4745.9 #24 1:34PM
if I am understanding this right. Party starts at 6, I can get my wristband at 3. Toontown is only for two hours, for some strange reason. - Lelundrial  591.4 #329 8:07PM
Yes, the toontown part is the 3rd year now is designed to give Halloween party goers something to do exclusively with characters and early trick or treating and the 2 rides there or you can be in the park and or wait till 6pm till the other treat trails open up - pikarich  4745.9 #24 8:10PM
I will ask the apprentice if he wants to go there. I certainly am not interested in that, but since I said we are not doing the party next year. He may want to, especially since he has never taken a pic with the characters in Halloween costume. - Lelundrial  591.4 #329 8:13PM
So @pikarich what time did you go into the park?  We will be there in the morning.  Then was going to go back in around 3pm.  We are AP holders....   Thank you for all the posts and tips, btw...

Hey guys, so my family and I will be going to Disneyland and DCA in a couple of days, and I was wondering if it would be worth it and go see the "Paint the Night Sky" parade, or take the opportunity to go and ride rides?

If you're coming on a Tuesday that isn't MHP we have a meetups and save close up seats for all who tell us they're coming. On MHP weeks I'll pick another night to do it. You get to watch parade, meet MWers and you can run back to attractions while some of us hold seats.  - secretagentangel  2422.3 #53 2:20PM
Do you rent yourself out to do this on other nights, as well?  πŸ˜. Such a nice thing to offer for those who come from out of town. 😊. Thank you for doing this.  - MeridaFan  3631.4 #37 5:58PM
I'll do it for others nights for you too if it's not hot, lol!  - secretagentangel  2422.3 #53 7:05PM
secretagentangel how far in advance can you "reserve" a spot? We are coming on Tues. Oct 6th and would love to meet fellow MWers and have a great spot to watch the parade. - DisneyIsMagical  123.6 #3093 7:42AM
What time do I do that? - bossdevinator  4.9 #0 6:08AM
What an awesome thing to do! Thank you! - PamPam82  30.7 #5635 6:43AM
I'll be posting a meetups for every Tuesday except the nights that have Β the MHP party going on, through October. Probably through the next year too, lol. We do cancel for rain, just watch for posts by me and I've been trying to get them in the events page weekly too. I have one up right now for today!Β  - secretagentangel  2422.3 #53 11:20AM
This is so nice of you!! Hopefully you do it when we come up there!!!  - sultan  40.2 #5024 12:23PM
The Paint the Night Parade is definitely worth seeing! If you get a spot by Its a Small World, you don't have to hold a spot for as long. There's usually still spaces available up to about an hour before the first one starts. During the week I think they only have one show! - Madgesty  125.7 #3050 12:40PM
I agree πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ - DisneyPrincessT  108.0 #3400 1:12PM
Agree with the above. That's probably the best spot to have a decent view but not spend a bunch of time waiting.  - redsoxcarlos  2045.8 #71 3:25PM
Thanks guys  - bossdevinator  4.9 #0 7:32AM
If you want to watch the parade without holding a spot go to the tea cups. There is a great view from the empty line as well as on the ride. I suggest you don't spin. Have a great time. - richiii3  810.3 #218 11:36AM

naldo467 since your daughter made that request, you'd better be looking for a Peter Pan costume asap or at least some sort of shirt that will satisfy her request πŸ˜‚.  Adults can and should dress up for the party!!   - Linzee  1141.3 #148 8:09PM
Hi and welcome! The Cadaver Dans are an amazing group of male singers who sing perfect songs for Halloween. Especially Nightmare Before Christmas!  - Cinderella_Schnooks  3235.8 #40 11:23PM

Security may frown upon the dagger at bag check πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ try Google image searching "Peter Pan Disneybound" that may give you some ideas naldo467 - Linzee  1141.3 #148 9:36AM
Hi and  naldo467! Here is what the cadaver dans look liks and feel free to GO ALL OUT in your adult Halloween costume if you like to dress up. You will NOT feel out of place at all. Lots of adults wear very extravagant costumes and we all enjoy seeing them! But if you are a minimalist, yes, a green shirt brown shorts and possibly the Peter Pan plastic dagger they sell in the parks would be great! Be sure to get your name or MHP 2015 embroidered on your Peter Pan hat too as a fun souvenir!!!! Post a pic too please!!!!! - TinkerSchelle  1801.9 #86 11:07AM
Great ideas googling Disneybound Peter Pan!I am a bit of a minimalist, but I don't think my daughter will let me get away with the just the minimum that night. With my luck she'll probably tell me I need to find a way to fly also. - naldo467  2.4 #0 11:52AM

Plaza Inn rainy day tip: if there is a line to get in and you are willing to sit outside, go up to the front of the line and let the CM know you are willing to sit outside and they will likely tell you to just go in and get your food. This worked twice this weekend. Today they sat us in the covered area right outside the windows. There's also all the umbrella covered tables.

TOP 5 THINGS to do this week at the Disneyland Resort:

1. Watch the new "Paint the Night" parade 8:50 and 11pm nightly.

2. Watch the new "Disneyland Forever" Fireworks show at 9:30pm nightly.

3. See the new "World of Color" 9pm and 10:15pm nightly.

4. Try to find a "Made with Magic" wand or paintbrush which allow you to interact with select Disney experiences and merchandise. 

5. Look for the Word of the Day displayed outside of the theme park entrances (or in the MouseWait Lounge) and text the word between 7am and 10:59am Pacific to the shortcode listed on the sign. You must be at the Disneyland Resort to enter. If you win, you will be notified around 11am via text or phone. For more info go here

And don't forget about Food! Check out our real-time Food blog to see what's new at the Resort. POST YOUR IDEAS BELOW and they could make the weekly top 5!
