Am I missing something? MNSSHP

We are going on August. The idea of Halloween in August just doesnt appeal to me.
Id completely ignored MNSSHP as just doesnt appeal, I dont want to dress up and take Halloween costumes in August, I dont want tons of sweets! I dont want to experience any busier than we need?
Im only annoyed as MNSSHP has fallen on our last night when Id planned last night at MK. So now Im replanning that night. Am I missing something though? Should I be considering MNSSHP and if not where would you go on our last night?

If you dont go you would miss the candy and the parade ( watch it on YouTube it never changes) and the character meets ( in 3 mnsshp we have never met a character !) and it doesnt sound like you want to spend the extra money on it either . You could do mk upto closing ( its normally a little quieter on mnsshp mornings ) , then go for a meal at a monorail Resort then watch the Halloween fireworks from them or even do the private boat hire which is worth every penny and full of memories . Or You could do the ferrywishes one. Thats if you really want to do mk in the evening . Or you could book a dessert party at another park , Epcot also will have the new firework show on so you could finish your holiday there.

We did it last year and wouldn't bother again. Park was absolutely jam packed and not really enjoyable at all.

We loved it, best evening of our trip,!
Parade was fantastic, great atmosphere with all the different outfits and low wait times
We came back with a pathetic amount of sweets though 😂

We love it! they let more people buy tickets than they used to so it IS more packed than it used to be but nowhere near as packed as a normal busy day! Wait times are less and you can easily get a space for fireworks etc.

Speaking of fireworks, the fireworks display is the all round 360 degree fireworks which are just brill

The parade is one of the best Disney do and the whole feel of the night is really great.

We don't dress up or collect sweets BUT we love seeing all the costumes and the atmosphere

Each to their own of course! but we love the halloween party

We did it in August last year - was very surreal because A) we never do anything for Halloween at home, like ever and B) It was august. Just couldn't get my head around it. We did enjoy it don't get me wrong, but it's a lot of money, for one night when you've already forked out money for tickets. We all prefer Happily Ever After to Hallowishes aswell, and we're not parade people (haven't watched a full one yet) So I don't think you're missing out as you've never been so don't know what you're missing (if you know what I mean!) We're giving it a miss this year and will hopefully watch HEA another night from either inside MK or from thr beach at the poly!

Yeah Im really not feeling it. Not bothered about character meets,sweets or costumes so doesnt sound like its for us.

Well have seen the Epcot fireworks already and cant change that as meeting friends for dinner that night. Well have been to Cali grill already too and dont want to change that as its my birthday that night.
Staying at GF so could have a night at a restaurant there but feels like should go out on the last night.

Weve never seen the AK night time show before, it opened the week we were there last time and we didnt risk the crowds. I could
Plan that. You know its just when you have last night MK in your head!

Its not our last night holiday just our last night disney, we then move to royal pacific for 4 nights .
