I just got back from this year's MNSSHP at the MK. While the rain did put a damper on thigs for the first hours of the party, the weather cooperated and everyone had fun. HalloWishes went on at 9:15pm and was fab, especially with the perimeter fireworks (but no flying witch as in previous years). The parade this year is also nice, with new "Boo to You" theme song and much better choreography as opposed to the stale daytime parade. Clarabelle Cow steals the parade up on the country portion of the parade. Even one of SpectroMagic revolving light spheres makes an appearance here. The Haunted Mansion portion was a highlight.
Out in the castle forecourt, a villians meet and greet with a little dance show was silly in a fun way. Big bad wolf posing and "DJ BB Wolf" was *bad*!
Candy stations galore and family photos were taken at some locations as well. This year's merchandise and party pins are nice.
The overall feel of the party was hip. Lots of music that was more festive and peppy than in previous years... Among some of the music featured over the pa system were tunes from TDL and DLP's halloween events... a nice touch.
All in all, it was a most enjoyable evening.
