If I went, I would probably wear my homemade pumpkin costume (similar to Donald in the one pic). If you went, what would you go as?
There are so many theme parks in the world, but you don't offer any kind of insight (or opinion, for that matter) on hardly any of them - unless they are based in Orlando or Anaheim obviously.
How about researching great European parks (I say "great" by European standards, obviously) such as Alton Towers, Parc Asterix, Efteling, Thorpe Park, PortAventura, Phantasialand, Europa Park...
Every time I log on to this site I read more and more about DISNEY...such as "...oh look, an ex-cast member from 1974 remembers this..." or "...wahey, look at the new fancy menus for EPCOT's 6th best restaurant..." or "...lo and behold the lack of chairs along the carnival route at Magic Kingdom...".
I would hazard a guess that the webmaster(s) and forum patrons on TPI have no knowledge whatsoever about any parks outside of Orlando and Anaheim - and that's fine I guess, but don't mislead people into visiting your site by pretending to offer 'insider' news on theme parks (generalisation, plural). Because you don't.
That said, I would love to have more coverage of the European parks, but living in America, I'm dependent upon European readers to help drive that - I can't provide it all myself. Now, this does raise a chicken-or-the-egg question: we need readers to provide coverage, but we need coverage to attract readers. I'm trying to break that by arranging a theme park trip to Europe, but I can save money only so fast.
We have had good coverage from readers in Europe in the past, and I've had some interest from a couple of readers who keep sending me e-mails from accounts to which my return messages bounce (grrrr...), so if anyone in the EU is reading this and wants to help us with that coverage, please let me know.
I gotta say that I was never thrilled with the idea of a Magic Kingdom Halloween event, especially one with a name as lame as "Not-So-Scary". The park, however, really does look good. I typically shun the idea of characters dancing to pop hits, but the idea of the Disney characters performing Thriller actually makes me smile. However, none of that matters if the candy isn't good. Was it high-quality candy? You know, brand-name chocolate bars and the like? Or did you end up with a pile of coconut marshmallows?
And now, back to our regular scheduled discussion.

I like MNSSHP but prefer the adult events at BGT and UO.On Saturday we are doing the passholder night at HOS. Can't wait!
The Halloween Party is a riot every year. The stigma of "its for kids" is broken down as you walk though the front gates. The Trick or Treating is worth it because, hey, when is the last time you were able to do that?
As for the Halloween Party, I wonder how many Harry Potter's will show up.
