Oh oh! Sorry totally remembering tips now that I'm not such in a fog! So if you are an annual pass holder bring your pass and go back towards big thunder trail there is a pass holder trick or treat trail. We didn't figure out where it was till maybe 11 last night and was able to still get our goodies

This is for the Halloween party, sorry going to bed at 3 makes u a little forgetful lol - excmdlgurl  418.4 #578 11:59AM
 for the tip!  - cinderelli  447.0 #532 12:44PM
Not AP holders anymore, so sad that we will miss out on the special treat this year. πŸ˜” however, I was willing to give up AP to go on a Disney cruise this year. It was well worth it. - Sugarbuzz  290.6 #1047 1:57PM
Thank you for posting this @@excmdlgurl . Meant to do this last night but was so exhausted!! It's a great tip for future MHP party goers. When we got there, there was nobody in line. We got our totes and candy very quickly! (Entrance to AP treat trail is at the exit of BTRR) - DisneyDiane316  796.7 #259 2:45PM

Ok maybe one more

I tried to get a pic but he was moving so fast they were all blurry! - PeppersGhost  314.9 #894 1:03PM
I found this problem with most of the action in the parade. They were all dancing around so fast I couldn't get a clear photo. Kind of a bummer when you're only armed with a cell phone. You really need a good camera with an action setting.  - DisneyDiane316  796.7 #259 2:50PM
Agreed! This one was blurry but ok took like a photo burst of 130 photos and got 2 that actually were cool of the grave digger - excmdlgurl  418.4 #578 3:03PM

More pics from the parade last night. I would seriously suggest watching both shows of it there was so much I missed the first time. It's amazing and NBC is one of my favs

Ok so brief review of blue bayou premium VIEWING of Halloween parade. Food great as usual friendly cast members lots of fun. Now for the viewing spot. Big plus you show up and you have a place to stand. On the bummer side it's not really any special viewing. If you wait on the curb you get the same spot as someone who paid for the seating. I was a happy camper but there were plenty of people that   More...

Completely agree! - teapotsandteacups  1743.1 #106 3:10AM
Did you do it too? - excmdlgurl  418.4 #578 8:49AM
Yes. - teapotsandteacups  1743.1 #106 8:50AM
What did you think?!? I was trying to not be a negative nelly because the parade its self was so amazing  - excmdlgurl  418.4 #578 8:51AM
I also try not to be neg...by the time I realized where the viewing area was, I was 3 deep in people, should have come earlier hardly any more room, could only see through the peep space of  2 standing people who were taller than me. Barely saw the horseman. What I did see of the parade was amazing though. - teapotsandteacups  1743.1 #106 9:15AM
Ok, so a couple more things. I just noticed VIEW was all caps. Yes, that IS why we decided to pay the premium price for dinner. The dinner was excellent, but our service was very slow, another reason late to the spot. The 1-1/2 pounds of candy in a plastic bag with a Blue Bayou sticker on it per person and the lighted necklace lanyard was nice. Need to get to the viewing area asap! - teapotsandteacups  1743.1 #106 9:25AM
Thank you teapotsandteacups and excmdlgurl. These honest reviews help MWers who may be on the fence about whether or not they should purchase an expensive package. DisneyDiane316 mentioned something similar. Because of her advice, I know what area to avoid when watching the parade. Oh yeah, UTDISNEYFAMILY gave me some great advice too!πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ - RadiatorSprings4Ever  2479.3 #65 11:01AM
i saw video,  the floats are awesome! - MsTikiMermadam  1498.4 #126 4:17AM
I was really hoping mystical spirits would be back this year, but we are doing the Blue Bayou dinner still. How early do we have to be for the "premium curb side seating?" Hubs is in a scooter, so everybody will be taller than him.  - Sugarbuzz  290.6 #1047 11:18AM
So make sure you are at dinner at 6:50. Eat then head over no later than 8 we showed up at 8:15 and were 2 people deep. There also was a handicap viewing area where people in scooters and wheelchairs were. I don't think I saw ANY in the actual viewing area you pay for. I was hoping for mystical spirits too it's something I think most would have enjoyed more. I even went to city hall and asked if I could pay mystical spirit prices so I can have a seat (I have a disability that makes it hard to stand for long periods or sit) no such luck. But you will have a great time  - excmdlgurl  418.4 #578 12:07PM
Thanks for the review. I was wondering if it was worth it! We have reservations @ Blue Bayou anyway but not for the special viewing dinner. - SKELLIGIRL  64.7 #4477 2:04PM

Question I know they aren't doing mystical spirits dinner this year I'm looking for PREMIUM SEATING for the HALLOWEEN SCREAMS FIREWORKS to achieve this would I have to purchase a vip tour for the day, park admission and a Halloween party ticket? Is there another way?

Usually the premium seating is set up through Guest Relations and varies day to day. But, the Halloween Screams fireworks can be seen throughout Main Street without the premium seating. In my experience, I found a space in front of the Castle about an hour before the show and had no problem. Hope this helps - BaseballMickey  8078.1 #13 8:10PM

#news I stumbled upon this and it hasn't been announced BUT reservations I'm sure will go quickly! Special viewing for the new Halloween parade and dinner at blue bayou

It sounds fun, it's a Better price than last year but it still cuts into your MHP time.Β Wish they'd do it on other nights too. - secretagentangel  8499.7 #11 8:45AM
I'm not sure if it will be as worth it as last years sadly. The big plus with last year is you had firework SEATing lol. But the new parade I'm sure will be great  - excmdlgurl  418.4 #578 8:51AM

Ok! So I'm down to trying to book a hotel! Grand is my favorite favorite BUT I can stay either 6 nights at the grand with a woods courtyard or 7 nights with a premium view at paradise pier! Which would you pick?!

I'm down for anything that allows me to stay longer - Poisen_Ivy  318.3 #873 12:07PM
I stayed at the paradise pier a few times I like it had a great view last time we stay had a problem with the shower told them about it but it didn't get fix right and there was no rooms to change to but they took money off the room and took off all the parking fees so that was ok  - Disneydollarpam  77.2 #4159 11:56AM

Has anyone heard any rumors of mystical spirits of the blue bayou will be back? We are planning a trip possibly end of September but would possibly do October if we knew the experience was coming again

I called this morning . They don't have any information as of yet . No dates , pricing or anything. They said to keep checking back in . Hope this helps for now  - eviljules  1506.8 #125 1:32PM
