We were there last night (17th Sept) too and didnt find it too bad though we only managed to walk on rides right at the end of the evening. 7DMT was a shorter than the 15 minute wait time at 11.30 and we walked straight in to see Tiana and Rapunzel but that was gone midnight.

We had a great evening though and got to see the Parade and fireworks without staking a place hours beforehand.

Have to admit though that it was a lot busier than 2014 and other years weve been.

We went last Tuesday and found it far too busy, it ruined the experience for us. Glad weve done it and the parade & fireworks were excellent but we have never seen magic kingdom so busy.

DH went last night and he managed to get onto quite a few rides but not without queuing. He would say it was really busy, worse than a regular day in the park. I think it is only worth going f you want the party atmosphere, but if you are looking for a way to do rides more easily, this is not it.

I know it's a bit odd, but think it's great they start in August otherwise we wouldn't get the chance to take part in such a fun night. It is too busy now in my opinion, really wish Universal would start a week or two earlier.

We went 1st night- Managed to see Moana(queued before party started), a few trick or treats stops, managed pirates ( got lucky it opened as we walked past otherwise 30+ mins), 1 photo with hitchhiking ghosts(again got lucky- no queue after the parade), 1 snack-( 1 queued while another held parade spot), we seen the parade and fireworks and rode Buzz. We left about 11.20. Not a bad evening but v busy and we would liked to have done more rides and characters. Space was 40 min at 11ish . we didn't even make it into Fantasy land.

Thanks everyone! This was my fear! We have fast passes booked from 3.30 so at least can get on rides then, we will have a DAS pass aswell which I dont think actually runs on party nights does it? Were not bothered about character meets, so think we will go in, do fast passes, concentrate on other rides, and then do the treat stops later on in the evening!

Were going back next year, defo wont be doing the party again I dont think!
