Hi there. now please bear in mind my point of view is coming as an adult who most of the time only visits with adults. So i dont really have the benefit of childs point of view. I thought I would see what peoples thoughts were to the Party entertainment this year. I attended the Oct 4th party. The weather was terribly windy which of course cant be helped, but it may have caused some of the other things that were missing on my trip. I that is the case PLEASE correct me. The Fireworks were cancelled for safety reasons. I totally understand that Im not factoring that in at all here.
there have been numerous points about what was added so I wont really go over that too much with the exception of the monsters inc dance party. It was sort of cute but really was a mess. Actually saw 2 kids almost fall off the stage after CMS had pulled them up there and were not quite paying enough attention.
Lets start with the scarecrows. they were not out. However that may have been the winds doing. But they were noticeably absent.
Another thing was no one was allowed in hub near partners for fireworks viewing or parade. The last 3 years we would get out spot for the 1st parade there and then just hang out and have hot cocoa till the fireworks. Thought it was not awesome that that area was closed off.
the soundtrack in the hub area was HORRIFIC. it was about a 9 minute loop of 4 songs. they were also playing the same silliness on main st.
the villians not being in the small world area. I realize they were on main st at the train station. That was highly unorganized and was just messing traffic up in and out of the park in the earlier hours. Not too mention the trains were not running until the very end of the show, and i dont think there was anyone on it they were just going to the roundhouse. My poor fat mans feet would have like to hop the train deeper in the park and ride back around lol.
The thing is most let down about was the little dance pirate dance party in frontier land with the characters dancing their behinds off for a ridiculous amount of time. I used to put on raves for a living and really could not believe how long they could dance in those costumes with out stopping. they put a lot of "party people" to shame.
having some rare characters out for meet and greets was pretty cool. got one of the stormtroopers to laugh which ive been trying forever to do. We never did see Roger Rabbit and we waited a long time.
I found it pretty silly the half dressed witches from the parade were posing with guest for pics but thats just me.
I love the party. My fiance and I look forward to it annually. However we may skip it next year I feel the value went down a lot this year.
I'm sure I will get some heat for this but It would be nice if there were less trick or treat trails and the parties ran a little later for adults only. That being said I heard many a person say the candy selection was horrible anyway.
On a related but separate pair of notes, the pumpkin donald costume is FILTHY. even the gloves were nasty. We caught him on his 1st appearance out for the day too. Jafar also needs some new hands. We "conjured" him and i saw his falling apart rubber hands and told him" you know what guy, you need to moisturize". His reaction was priceless. He through my fiances autograph book on the ground and stomped back into the little transfer tent pretending to leave.
also if you say AFLAC real loud he laughs. thanks for your time
