Keep in mind as with the other extras list these are not tips/extras i can verify. We will probably be trying some on our upcoming trip and party night. Please feel free to add to the list and thanks to everyone for providing the extras i already have
take a pillowcase, backpack, or extra bag for candy because the bag the give you is small and fills fast.
characters can start meeting as early as 5 pm.
trick or treat later in the night because they give you more so they do not have to carry it back and you will not be carrying it all night long.
character lines can be long and get closed early so line up early if it is something on your must list.
front of park is less crowed for fireworks and parade. Makes it easy to leave after.
you can cut through stores on main street if you are trapped by parade and wanting to leave
watch parade near sleepy hallow as the headless horseman slows way down to cross the bridge.
get special mnsshp magic shots. They usually do not start doing them until 7 pm
later shows and second parade are less crowded.
definitely hit the trail near tonys town square when entering for mnsshp for trick or treating it is a nice candy stop.
some candy stops are allergy friendly and have things like ghost peeps etc.
That's all i have. Hope you find it helpful.
