  1. Do you have any information about the DVC Moonlight Magic at Disneyland Park on Nov 15? I trying to get information but everything is on DisneyWorld. I wanted to know what rides will be open and food they will be serving?

  2. So does that mean if you are in line for a character by 1am, you still get to meet them? They don’t pull the characters away at 1am? Ex) Could I get in line for a character at 12:59am?

  3. Jennifer, Was Constance up on the bench or was she down on the ground where you could take pics with her? Photopass photographer? Autographs? Any details would be great!!!

  4. My family and I attended Friday evenings party. I can try and answer some of the questions people had. All the characters we saw were meeting all together. They were very interactive with your group and signed autographs. And the fireworks were awesome. Someone said they are a preview of what’s to come of the new fireworks replacing Wishes. Definitely some neat and new things they haven’t done before.

  5. Characters came out starting right at 10pm. The only times I noticed they were not out all night was during the fireworks. Regular fireworks were at 9pm. Dvc firworks at 1215am. Characters were back out a few minutes after fireworks ended. I lined up for shadowman during fireworks and was 3rd in line. After fireworks ended we were able to meet shadowman, cowboy goofy, country bears and timon n terk. Abu and genie still had a long line so we skipped them. I heard all lines were open till 1am. I can say that the line for timon n terk remained open till 1am. Lonest lines were pinocchio crew and belle n beast side of princes hall. We did 8 character meet without much effort as we did 3 rides, dance party with zootopia and a 45 minute diner break at cosmic rays for free hot dogs and chicken nuggets. Not bad for 3 hours. I would line up 45 minutes early for 1st character and try to jump in a line during fireworks. Fireworks were one of the best ones i have seen. I am able to attend both parties so our goal was to get half at each and we already have darkwing from last year. Got abu and genie from parties. Prince’s too but they have new outfits so we will try to get them again.

  6. Were the fireworks at the end of the night or did the characters come back out after? and were they out at all other times besides fireworks?

  7. Kenny they had hot dogs, chicken nuggets, foutain drinks, lays chips, chocolate chip cookies, appleslices ALL FREE. No icecream this year

  8. He is at the riverboat. We lined up during the fireworks as they had pulled him. He was back right after and we were 3rd in line. Its the right side against the rock wall.

  9. The characters were out together. Chicken little and abby. Genie and abu. Even timon and terk were together. Clarice was her own line. Ludwig was not out. It was darkwing on the other side of splashzone with his own line. Max was solo by barnstormer. Country bears were together. I didn’t make it to Pinocchio characters. Belle and beast side of princess hall was over an hour most of the night. Characters were pulled for fireworks.

  10. How long were the character lines last year? Is it pretty easy to try to meet characters and ride some attractions during the party?
    Did the characters stay out until 1am?

  11. Hey Kenny. If you get any answers to my questions after the first party in Friday, please respond. I am really confused about how you listed characters together with a “/” and am in need of clarification. Thanks.

  12. There are no other dates listed for Magic Kingdom, but there are going to be other Moonlight Magic parties around Walt Disney World and Disneyland.

    Be sure to check the DVC Magic Ever After landing page for updated information and to reserve your spot at the party!


  13. Ugh ok so will I I was hoping you’d be at the first so you could tell us what exactly to expect. if you hear any news about the characters from the first night please share!!

  14. Please tell me if there’s a / such as chicken little/abby mallard does it mean they’re both meeting together or swapping out?? also just wanted to mention that I saw this today and was so bummed that it was sold out but i kept checking online for openings due to cancellations and i was able to get a spot after checking once in a while for a few hours!! So don’t be discouraged if it’s sold out just keep checking.

  15. Thanks for the great info! Two questions…
    1. Do you know if the fireworks will be the same as the DVC special fireworks from their event in Magic Kingdom last year, or did they create a new fireworks show?
    2. When you were listing the characters, the ones that you listed together (for example, Ludwig Von Drake/Clarice) does that mean those two characters will switch off and it will be one line for both, ie. you won’t know which character you are meeting until you get to the front of the line? Or does it mean that those 2 characters will be at the same location together, but different lines for each? If they switch off with just one lone for both, do you have a strategy for how to meet the one you want if you only want to meet one of them? Thanks as always for all your help!

  16. I’ll be there on Friday! Can’t wait! Thanks so much for posting this info- super excited about Dr. Facilier! :) Any idea how far in advance we’ll need to line up? Thanks!
