I'm attending my first halloween party this year and i was wondering if someone would give me the rundown of how it works, when is the best time to arrive, when should we start waiting for the parade and fireworks. thanks!

Not sure if this helps, but I was at the party a few years ago, and I'm going again this October. You can enter at 4pm, so we usually tried to get there about 3:30 to line up to get our wrist bands. After that is really about what is important to you... if that's rides or treat lines or the parade or some combination of all 3. We were able to do all the rides we wanted, plus fill our treat bags up, and enjoy the fireworks last time... it was Halloween day and we still were able to go on all the rides multiple times! That's the awesome thing about the party ticket... less people! :)

I haven't been but here's what I plan to do. We can get in at 3 so going to catch the sounds atop all parade at 330. Then head to toon town for preparty. Then head to the villian square to see the Villians. Then parade and fireworks. Meals and rides and trick or treating in there along the way as well. My goal is to hit the stuff that isn't there on a regular day. We are there all week so I'm not worried about usual stuff cause we will have other days to do that if needed.

take larger totes to dump ur candy in when the small bags get full. when i went with my daughter and the grandbabies we had a stroller, so that helped with carrying all the candy.

Thanks guys so much! Super helpful!!! Yeah i figured we'd do all the things that don't go on during normal hours bc we can always do that another day. I'll be there on October 10th :)...I wanted a Friday date but by the time i went to buy my tickets they were sold out on fridays :( thanks guys!

Yes definitely do the villains meet and greets and fireworks and parade. They are amazing! Also getting to dress up and trick or treat at Disneyland is the most fun thing! My family is also going to be at the party on the 10th. We are dressing as pirates. Are you planning on dressing up?

Yes! I'm so excited about the villain meet and greet and the parade! Oh nice, pirates will be cool. I realllly want to dress up, I'm just not sure what to dress up as.

Anything! Lol! My family usually just goes as whatever we come up with, but this year I coordinated everyone. You can disneybound or go full on costume. I've been going for the last few years and I really think seeing everyone in costume is part of the fun. I love how creative people can get. 2 years ago I dressed as a girl version of sully from monsters inc.

Half of us are doing Star Wars. Then Peter Pan and tinker bell. I didn't want a full in costume so I'm just doing Green pants and shirt with some etsy Peter Pan ears. You should totally dress up, check Pinterest for ideas!

What party dates is everyone going to be at? My family is going to the October 10th and 13th parties! I would love to try and spot people in their costumes.

I'll be at the September 20th party. I can't believe I was able to get a ticket. I only just called Disney last Friday and not only were tickets still available for the night I wanted to go, it arrived in the mail yesterday. So Fast! Disney is the Best!

A weird thought, forgive me. A lot of people suggest bringing a larger bag for treats...would it be weird to grab a pillow case from the hotel room and using that?

Jenni - I would. You'll fill it up. It won't get dirty cause all the candy is wrapped.

So I know there are costume guidelines but still not sure on one thing. Peter Pan had a dagger, does anyone know if I got a toy dagger that would be allowed?

I'm going to say no, since they got rid of all the toy guns in the park. You could call and ask but you could get to the gate and they say no, even if you got a yes from guest relations.

The costume guidelines from the Disneyland site "For Guests Ages 14 and Older Capes may be worn if the length does not go below the waist. Themed T-shirts, blouses, sweatshirts and hats are acceptable. Acceptable accessories include: transparent wings, plastic light sabers, toy swords and tutus. Headwear may be worn as long as it does not cover the face. Masks of any kind may not be worn, except for medical purposes. Guests who do not adhere to these guidelines may be refused entry into, and/or removed from, the event, unless his or her costume can be modified to meet the above standards"

Usually they give out fun size snickers, kit Kat, milky way, m&me, starburst, Skittles, etc. They also have another "healthier"option you can ask for which is usually apples, carrots, Graham crackers, pirate booty, etc. Its all good stuff and you get a ton! I'm not even kidding I didn't have to buy candy to pass out on Halloween.
