    I am traveling to the parks in September and was wondering if it would be worth it for 2 grownups to splurge on the MNSSHP or should we just watch the fireworks from the beach at Polynesian? I don't care about candy and we will be doing extra magic hours for MK 2 days before.

    hmmm tough call that.

    Normally I'd say splurge! we're 2 grownups with no sticky kids to worry about :lol: and we love the halloween party. The atmosphere is great and the candy grabbing well, it's a bit of fun :lol: ( we got quite competitive as to who got the most candy... dw was winning until we exited the park and a cast member liked my halloween outfit and emptied a huge bag of candy into mine :D )

    BUT is it *worth* the money. Well. it's expensive I guess, the halloween parade is awesome, the candy is nice, the atmosphere all makes it worth it for me but with you doing EMHs the other nights you may be on MK overload!

    I love MNSSHP :D

    It's only the 2 of us, we don't have children, but if we are there when the party is on then we go on one of the evenings. We have been 3 times now and there are still things that we haven't been able to see or fit in. There are lots of characters out, it's the only time I can remember seeing Snow White and the 7 dwarfs. Cinderellas Carriage is out so you can have your photo taken :D Haunted Mansion is brilliant :D As Keith said you can collect candy and there is a lot of it :lol: We had so much last time, we had to leave it in the house for the cleaners because it was too much weight to take home with us :lol: :lol:

    It is expensive, but we don't stay onsite so we don't get the benefit of EMH. If you can afford the extra then I would say go for it :D

    We did MNSSHP 2 years ago and it was great. We didnt realize that it was going on until we arrived.We also werent sure if we wanted to spend the extra money on it and I am so glad we did. It was a blast and would love to do it again.

    There is an early parade for younger children with the fireworks just after. I think it would depend on how late your little one is used to staying up. When we went with our friends, their youngest was 5 and she was OK until about 10pm and then she was tired so they left.

    If it was me, I would probably get her to have a sleep in the afternoon, and then go to the party. A lot of the children wear fancy dress - quite a few adults as well :D If you've got her stroller, she could always sleep in that if it was getting later.

    If you love Hallow'een, then definitely go. :yes:
    We're 2 adults and we loved it. We both dressed up a bit and had a fun evening, with lots of cheery conversations with CMs etc. :witchhat:

    We do it every time we're down there at Halloween time. Ergo, the above video! That was from when we were down there with Mr. and Mrs. Slowhand.

    Thanks everyone for your responce!

    I think we have decided to spend some of the afternoon in MK (after park hopping from AK) so we can see some of the decorations. Then at 7ish we will head over to the Polynesian, watch the fireworks, and have dinner at 'Ohana.

    I work in childcare and get to do the Halloween thing full blast in October (including decorating my classroom for our annual Boo Bash). My travel companion isn't really into the whole dress-up thing. Both being Pooh sized we can do without the candy! We are going to spend the $50 on dinner in Epcot another evening.

    So, I had a change of heart and ordered tickets. I figure it's probably a once in a lifetime chance (normally I go to FL in February). Now I just have to decide whether or not to wear a costume, and what it will be.

    Ah, you'll have a fun time. :yes: Dress up as anything you please! You'll be surprised how many adults do dress up. It's the only time adults are allowed to dress up at WDW.

    But do spend an evening having dinner at EPCOT.
