      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Minimal waits for rides, fun costumes, fun atmosphere, parade, fireworks...
      Cons: Enormous lines for candy and characters

      My friend and I went to MNSSHP on Tuesday September 20th. It was a last-minute decision (accompanied by a last-minute trip to World of Disney for fairy wings), and I'm so glad we made it because we had a wonderful time. We ended up passing on the majority of the insanely long lines for candy and characters in favor of going on rides and just taking in the ambiance. Loved the Haunted Mansion with the ghostly woman sitting on the front lawn and the cast members in extra-creepy mode. HalloWishes was really great too. Of course the highlight of the evening was the parade. I am definitely part of the majority in that the Haunted Mansion gravediggers segment was my favorite. The Winnie the Pooh characters in their Halloween costumes were almost too cute to handle. Be prepared to have the "Boo to You" song stuck in your head for several days! I had heard that people go all-out with their costumes, but I was still very impressed with what I saw. Will have to make more of an advance effort next time!

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): Great Parade/Great Castle Display
      Cons: Crowds/Entry Requirement Confusion

      Well, as usual a WDW is a victim of it's own success. I attended the first MNSSHP of 2011 (9/13). The parade was the usual great Disney event. The Castle display was wonderful. But once again the crowd level was simply too high to have real pleasure in the experience. And there were rumors if you came in before 4pm you didn't have to purchase the separate ticket but only the MK ticket or also rumored if you came in after 7p you only needed the MNSSHP ticket - so I'm not sure which was correct-of course the CM at WL said you needed both. I'm starting to wonder if I'm getting too old (65) to enjoy the MK anymore. And as usual I saw alot of people without the wristband indicating they had not paid the $56+ price for the MNSSHP ticket. I sure thought tuesday Sept 13th would have low crowd levels but there were alot of pre-school age children and I guess alot of people took their children out of school after only one week of the term or a real late school-night out. Final thought: Where's this recession I hear so much about?

      Positive aspects of the product (pros): the headless horseman, dance parties with characters
      Cons: none

      We always go in September so the crowds are never an issue.The weather is perfect. The dance parties with characters scattered around the park (characters up close dancing with you!!!) are soo fun for the kids. The parade, as always, is amazing. The kids dressed up trick or treating with no lines for rides---what more could you ask for? Love it!!!!
