I've got a few more thoughts about yesterday's huge news about Disney and Star Wars, but I'll hold off posting those for a day while everyone enjoys tonight's Halloween parties and trick-or-treating. Tweet us @themepark with photos and updates if you'll be in the parks tonight. Or just take a moment to vote in our annual Halloween poll and wish your fellow Theme Park Insider readers well in the comments.

Me? I'm planning to spend the evening handing out candy while dressed as Bob Iger. Treats for everyone! Happy Halloween!

I'll be spending the evening scaring at a haunt, then going to HHN. :-)

First Wookie now this. I'm getting nothing but tricks :(

Treat, fo' sho'!!! There's almost nothing better than eating all the Milky Ways I am supposed to hand out to visiting trick or treaters! Hey, they can have all the lousy Tootsie Rolls they want! The Milky Ways are mine!

The three most important uses of chocolate are:

1) Cake
2) Sauce
3) To provide a container for peanut butter on Halloween. (Or any other time of the year, for that matter.)

There ya go.

I just stopped by Robert Niles's house for trick or treating and was given a bunch of pamphlets for improving my investment strategy. Does that count as a trick or a treat?

Lots of kids are knocking at my door now. Free Milky Way everyone!

^That's like giving away gold, Daniel! Inconceivable!

Unfortunately, Halloween basically didn't exist in this area.
Not a single trick or treater around.

As far as the vote, the whole tri-state area could certainly use a treat right about now.

Sorry to put a damper on the thread.
