Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Map, 2017

By Rhonda Moffit, Moffits-Mad Hatter Adventures  August 28, 2017

Here you can view the brand new Disney guide maps for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, 2017! Just click an image to open and enlarge.

 

Remember, if you are attending this year, the event will begin at 7pm but you can enter as early as 4pm. You will have five spooktacular hours to attend the party, so go with a plan beforehand. Also, we can’t tell you how many guests make the mistake of wearing heavy costumes- just don’t. It is no fun if you sweat all night and wind up with heat exhaustion!

Costume Guidelines:

  • Disney reserves the right to deny admission to or remove any person wearing attire that is considered inappropriate or attire that could detract from the experience of other Guests.
  • All Guests may dress as their favorite character, but may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
  • Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
  • Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
  • Costumes may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.
  • Guests who do not adhere to these guidelines may be refused entry into, and/or removed from, unless his or her costume can be modified to meet the above standards.

For Guests ages 13 and under:

  • Costumes and some masks may be worn, as long as the mask does not cover the entire face and eyes are visible.

For Guests ages 14 and older:

  • Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and may be subject to additional security screening.
  • Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground. (e.g. full-length Princess dresses)
  • Capes may be worn if the length does not go below the waist.
  • Themed T-shirts, blouses, sweatshirts, and hats are acceptable.
  • Acceptable accessories include: transparent wings, plastic light sabers, toy swords, and tutus. Headwear may be worn as long as it does not cover the face.
  • May not wear masks of any kind.

Do not forget a poncho, as it is usually rainy for about half the parties each year.

If you have kids in your group, watch the first parade/stage show. That way you can take them trick or treating during the rest of the night!

Don’t forget to have your picture taken by a WDW photographer, either.  You will see them all over the place- it is worth it!

Walt Disney World: Magic Kingdom’s “Happily Ever After”- First Ever Showing

by Rhonda Moffit, Moffits-Mad Hatter Adventures    June 13, 2017

20170512_205601

Recently, we had the privilege of being at the Magic Kingdom to view the first ever “Happily Ever After” fireworks spectacular. This new show is the replacement for the “Wishes” fireworks show which was very popular and ran for fourteen years.

20170512_202253

We had a largely unobstructed vantage point to view the show, and chose our spot carefully (we are sharing our secret spot with our Mad Hatter family, so don’t forget to ask!). The crowds were amazing, even as the sun went down. Main Street U.S.A. was full of cheer and excitement and everyone around us was practically giddy as the time finally arrived.

The effects in the show are truly spectacular, and the projections on the castle feature a lot of the Disney characters that have been overlooked in previous shows. Characters such as Mulan, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and many more appear larger than life in brilliant color. I won’t spoil it for those who have not seen the show in it’s entirety, but it is not to be missed. The crowd loved it on the first night, and cheers were everywhere at the conclusion of the spectacle. It is a winner, and in all honesty I like it even more than it’s predecessor. Please enjoy the images from that first showing.

Festival of Fantasy Parade- New Start Time!

by Rhonda Moffit, Moffits-Mad Hatter Adventures    May 23, 2017

18381867_2293155700910271_2691188252399894528_n

News today from Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom! The Festival of Fantasy Parade will begin at 2:00pm rather than the traditional 3:00pm beginning August 20, 2017.

The prevalent parade time has been 3:00pm for many years, and it is a common joke among Cast Members that Disney guests tend to ask “when does the three o’clock parade begin”? (As a former CM myself, I can tell you that yes, that actually has happened, more than once.)

There are also rumors swirling on social media about the Paint the Night Parade and the possibility of it coming to WDW. While we have no official word on that as of yet, we will keep you posted.

What are your thoughts? Would you like Paint the Night to appear at WDW? Happy about the new Festival of Fantasy Parade time in August? Comment and let us know!

20170512_215511

We now know a perfect spot to stand to view this new show that will be largely unobstructed! We are going to share this tip, among others, with our Mad Hatter travel clients.

(Updated, 5/19/17) Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and More Attractions to Remain Closed for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party? Say it isn’t so, Disney-and they did! 

20160602_091935
Say it isn’t so, Disney! No Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at MNSSHP 2017?

Written by Rhonda Moffit of Moffit- Mad Hatter Adventures, May 17, 2017

***UPDATE- 5/19-17***

So guess what?! Disney did indeed add the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train AND Big Thunder Mountain Railroad to the list of operational attractions for MNSSHP this year! There are still attractions that could be added, so we are eagerly anticipating any possible updates and will pass them along to you as soon as we hear and verify. Disney added the Mine Train to the list on the evening of the 17th and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad on the 18th, after the internet exploded with support for our story and others. Thank you for being a reader!

The official details have been surfacing all this week in regards to the Walt Disney World attractions and events that will (or will not) be available as part of this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  We have noticed that some favorites are noticeably absent from the list of open attractions in the Magic Kingdom this year. Unfortunately, this includes the immensely popular Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.

On the official Disney site for MNSSHP as well as all over blogs, groups and news sites this week, it is indicated that many attractions will not be available to experience during the party.

The list of rides that will be running and open during MNSSHP is as follows:

  • The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Swiss Family Treehouse
  • A Pirate’s Adventure- Treasures of the Seven Seas
  • Country Bear Jamboree
  • Haunted Mansion
  • Prince Charming Regal Carousel
  • “It’s a Small World”
  • Peter Pan’s Flight
  • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
  • Mad Tea Party
  • Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid
  • Dumbo the Flying Elephant
  • The Barnstormer
  • Astro Orbiter
  • Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
  • Space Mountain
  • Tomorrowland Speedway
  • Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover
  • Monters, Inc. Laugh Floor

The only coasters that appear to be open during the party are Space Mountain and Goofy’s Barnstormer. It has previously been announced that Splash Mountain will be undergoing refurbishment during this time, so it will be closed as well. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is absent from the open attraction list as well, which will no doubt leave many a Disney fan disappointed.

Moffits- Mad Hatter Adventures and Walt’s Basement are eagerly watching for more details to be released regarding the schedule, attractions, and any special offerings for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, 2017. We encourage our readers to watch for upcoming details.

Reside in the Haunted Mansion?

Express-Monorail-2_zps35034a2f.jpg
by Mztressofallevil

 

Everyone in my family (other than those that live in my house, that is) thinks I am a bit mad. I would LOVE to live in the Haunted Mansion at Walt Disney World.

Ever since I was a young girl I have been amused and fascinated by the 999 Happy Haunts and their not-so-humble abode. They always tell you that there is “room for one more” and ask for volunteers, so why not? I VOLUNTEER, DISNEY!

In all seriousness, the details of the mansion are something that scores of Disney fans adore and cherish. Just traveling through the mansion is a feast for the senses. You feel the chill of the breeze regardless of the weather outside, and you can sense the “spirits” all around you without fearing the “other side”. It is a grim grinning great time for all ages.

You begin in the all-time favorite, the Stretching Room, complete with the hilarious portraits and the introduction to our “Ghost Host”.

Just a bit later, after you find your way out of the room with no windows and no doors, you can see much from the comfort of your Doombuggy. These images are intentionally out of order, however, for I don’t want to spoil it if you have not yet ventured into the mansion yourself.

2606596930_d097ee4964_z_zps7e9de223.jpg
Lots of stairs. That could get confusing if one leaves a Doombuggy. I will wait for a better departure point.

5104626301_f8c6c7dbfd_z_zpse4fcc216.jpg
Definitely leaving this lid intact as long as possible.

Ah, here we go! The Ballroom banquet. What’s for dinner?

imagesqtbnANd9GcQAQu6nV26wztQLq7Tts_zps3
Of course, I don’t think I could party on the chandelier above the table. Heights are not my thing. But party on, chandelier dudes!

imagesqtbnANd9GcSiGKtc3vjTrZ0qQjtRm_zpsa
The Singing Busts. I can carry a tune- oh they just have to let me join in.

Madame Leota presiding over her seance.Lots of musical instruments in that room. Maybe she will let me play one?

7533483056_b63695d27d_z_zps17203cae.jpg
Constance! I am sure we would get on fabulously- after all, we could have lots of girl talk and I am not taking anything with sharp edges with me.

2795444501_0e0aea0e48_zps3c007065.jpg
Ezra, Gus, and Phineas. Now why are they always trying to hitch a ride away from the mansion? Ah, the grass really is always greener I suppose.

Which is YOUR favorite room in the Haunted Mansion?
Would YOU join the 999 Happy Haunts as I would? (Or is my family right- am I batty?)

Shall we plan a weekend?

Walt’s Basement: Seven Years Young

Seven years. Wow. Already?

My kids were tiny, and one of them wasn’t even in school yet when I started this site way back in 2006. Now one is in college and the youngest is in Middle School. I have told the story so many times, but I started this place as a haven for Disney fans who want something MORE– something extra special without fear of being ridiculed or made fun of, edited, or treated unfairly.

Walt’s Basement Disney Forum (www.walts-basement.com) is a site that truly cares about it’s staff and it’s members, on and offline. It matters not if you are active now or were active in 2007, you are part of our online family and we welcome you when you are able to spend time with us. We miss you when you go and celebrate when you stay. We send you pixie dust when things are not going so good for you, and we shout for joy when you share good news with us. EVERYONE, regardless of where they come from or what they do for a living, matters here- as we are all united by our love of all things Disney.

Recently, I was told that someone asked another party about our site and another person told them not to bother- that we took a lot of time to participate on our site- that they could just join the Facebook Groups or follow us or other Disney things through social media, and that we weren’t worth the effort that it takes. Now I think that people would expect me to be hurt by this, or even get angry, but you know what I did? I laughed. It is obvious to me that anyone who has ever been involved- really involved- with our site knows that it is WELL worth the effort. We have done so much good together. Our members, Mods and Board Members have joined forces to brighten so many faces with smiles by mailing packages and goodies. We have provided coats for children who could not afford them in the cold weather, and school supplies for an entire special education classroom. We have furnished families with toys for their children to unwrap on Christmas morning, and even meals for Thanksgiving dinners. Donations to food pantries in different communities have been given by Walt’s Basement, and I happen to recall many of our members bonding together to raise funds for a very special little girl to get a specially made therapy bike, too. There are so many things we have done…..and so many things we have yet to do. We care for our online family!

No, we are not just social media, thank goodness. We do take more than a couple of sentences to get involved and get to know one another, which is a pretty rare thing these days. And when we do take that precious time to get to know someone, we invest in them and accept them as part of our group here. Before too long, I bet they even get slipped a Mickey in their mailbox (and yes, that is a very good thing). Heck, they could even get Blitzed (again, a good thing!).

Many of us have been around since the pilot year of WB, and some have only been around for a few months, but we are all united in the mission that we are trying to accomplish and have set out to since day one- to spread as much Disney magic as possible. So thank you to all of you for sharing in the dream- my dream- for WB and our dream for Disney magic. I could not have done this without you and I am forever grateful to each of you that have stood by me (and my family) through the past seven years and the growth and development of this amazing site. I can not wait to see what the future holds.

– MZTRESSOFALLEVIL

When and how did Walt’s Basement first reach you or make an impact on you? Share your story with us, and if you haven’t joined us yet- sign up today so you can share your story with us on our next Anniversary, because I know you will have one before long.

A WB In Depth Look at Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom

dee36b37990943ba26c8d63f49f10c40b56f062c

Roam the Magic Kingdom Park in search of clues and use your newly discovered magical powers to defeat the Disney Villains.
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom (debuting February 22, 2012) is a free inter-active adventure game that takes places in different hidden locations throughout the Magic Kingdom Park. Guests can join the wizard Merlin’s team of Apprentice Sorcerer’s, and help Merlin fight the forces of evil in this inter-active role-playing game.

Hades, the Lord of the underworld has set his sights on the magic kingdom park, and plans on making it his new home; although Merlin stands in his way. Hades sends Pain and Panic to Merlin’s home to steal Merlin’s Crystal ball (a powerful artifact that keeps the forces of evil in check throughout the Magic Kingdom).  Pain and Panic awake Merlin while attempting to steal the Crystal ball and a scuffle then ensues causing the Crystal ball to be shattered into pieces, which have been scattered to different locations around the Magic Kingdom Park. Not being one to give up so easily, Hades assembles a team of Disney Villains to retrieve the Crystal shards for him.
Using Merlin’s Mystical map, guests can embark on missions throughout Main Street U.S.A; Adventureland; Fantasyland; Frontierland and Liberty Square. Each land in the park hosts a different adventure within the game, with different villains in each adventure.
Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is played with a set of playing cards (Spell cards) similar to baseball cards – with a different Disney character on each. Each character possesses unique properties that will help that character fight certain villains encountered along the way.  You can obtain one pack (containing 5 cards) of spell cards each day in the Magic Kingdom. Your admission ticket will be scanned to record that you have received your cards for that day.

09a26ab98143125fd9247d0896b1df3e6aaed8b6

You can pick up your Spell cards and a map (showing the locations of the 20 game portals throughout the Magic Kingdom) at two locations. The main location is at the Firehouse at the town Square at the end of Main Street U.S.A., between the City Hall and the Emporium. The second location is in Liberty Square behind the Christmas Shop. Each pack of Spell Cards contains one rare card (Star card) and four common or uncommon Spell cards (Planet or Moon cards).
Guests can also buy Booster Packs of 7 spell cards at various locations. A Booster Pack usually will contain one super rare (Lightning Bolt) card, plus 6 other cards (usually 1 Star and 5 common or uncommon cards)
Super rare, rare, common and uncommon only represent how rare the cards are, and thus how valuable they are to traders –  the rarer cards are not any more  powerful in the game and are simply of interest to those who collect the cards.

84316f994c2ddb410649f306803cc95fe749a738

Once you pick up your first set of spell cards, one card will be assigned as your Key card, this will be the card that will link you to the game. You will also need to present your key card once you have completed the game, to pick up your next set of spell cards to start a new adventure.  After you have been given your first set of spell cards, you will then view an instructional video explaining to you how to use your spell cards and the object of the game. You will then be sent to different location to begin your first adventure.
Each adventure will consist of 4 or 5 stops in a particular land. At each stop another video will be played, showing you just what your villain has been up to. Merlin will then ask you to cast a spell using your spell cards, to stop the villain. You will then hold up one or more of your spell card (s) up to the video display (game portal) to cast your spell. Cameras will then read and display the spell and show you your results.

The game has three levels of difficulty: easy, medium and hard. If you are a first time player, your game will be set to easy. Once you have completed the game, you can begin a new game choosing to continue on easy level or increase the difficulty of the game to medium level. Once completing the game on medium level, you can then play on the hard level if you choose to do so.

Difficulty levels of the game are as following:
Easy: Your spell card selection does not really matter; Any spell card you use will defeat any villain in the game. If you use your spell cards several times during the game, your spell carders will become stronger, thus giving you an advantage when starting in the harder levels.
Medium: This time around the Villains will be stronger or weaker against certain spell cards. Keep in mind that playing the spell cards that match the Villains weakness gives up a upper hand. The Villains are stronger and it could more than one round to defeat them. You may need to use 2 or more spell cards in specific combinations to conquer a particular villain.
Hard:  Villains at this level are overall harder to defeat. Playing multiple spell cards that have had their strength leveled up is often necessary to defeat the Villains quickly.  Different combination of spell cards cast different spells and only certain spells work against certain Villains in the harder levels. Keep in mind that the audio at each stop holds clues as to which cards you should use against the more Advanced Villains, so keep your ears open Cute
There are a total of nine different story lines, each with a different Disney villain you must defeat in order to complete the game. Each storyline consists of several chapters – a few bad guys to face, then of course the main villain of the story. The final storyline will always be against Hades, Lord of the Underworld. Once you have defeated Hades, you will move on to one final portal where you will be rewarded a virtual medal either Novice, Bronze, silver, gold or Master Sorcerer.

Once you have completed the game, you can return to Sorcerer training at either the Fire station or Liberty Square. There you will be rewarded a bonus pack of spell cards and you can then start a new game at the same level of difficulty or higher if you choose.

Why Play you ask? The Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is a unique card game only offered to guests at the Magic Kingdom.  It can be fun for the whole family.  Most of the younger kids would enjoy the easy level, although everyone has to start on that level first if it is their first time playing.  The adults and older kids would benefit more from the medium and hard levels.  They most recently changed the difficulty of the hard level.  The change happened on October 1, 2013.  Before October 1, 2013 the hard level was played the same way as the medium level.  Once the sorcerer had found what the strengths and weaknesses of a villain, those same strengths and weaknesses applied at the hard level. Now, each villain’s weakness will change with each game. Overall, guests who play the game are satisfied.
Likewise, collecting the cards is also a reason a play.  They have come out with special collectible cards for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.  The Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom game has done that twice in a row.
In the game you can collect a total of 70 cards plus some special and regular collectible cards and variants.  Please note that the variant cards are production changes while the game was still being tested.  Each of the different cards is classified into nine different spell types: Toy, Machine, Animal, Fairy, Hero, Princess, Warrior, Monster, and Mystic.  Plus, seven different types of attacks: Charming, Energy, Gross, Quick, Strong, Wishful, and Flying.
