Disclaimer... I have not been to the Halloween Party, just the Christmas Party. However, the resident experts will probably ask you for a little more information before they can really advise you.
How old are your kids? Tweens? Teens?
What are you most interested in, rides? Parade? Castle show? Fireworks? Characters? Trick or treating?
Are you planning on attending on a week night or weekend night? Early in the season, or close to Halloween?
Probably have a few more questions, but that basic info will help get the conversation going. Hope you have a blast!

One tip is to watch the second parade and to do character greets or rides depending on your interest during the first parade. DVC members can also enter the parks at 2PM again this year on the MNSSHP tickets.

Just me, but my strategy would be *not* trying to get the most out of it. That way leads to madness. And less fun.

But if I must give a practical suggestion... save any trick-or-treating until later. That way you (1) don't wait in lines (2) have to carry the candy around with you, (3) minimize the chance of still having halloween candy three months later.

We are going in August, but it is a Friday night. My 3 DDs are 21,23, 25..and they can't wait. They actually are interested in meeting some of the less seen characters. We will probably catch the second parade and watch it in frontier land. It is usually less crazy back there,

Definitely a good strategy right there.

Agreed with Salís suggestion to wait on the trick-or-treating until late or if you happen upon a short line.

We do very little trick or treating and just have fun. We have done the MNSSHP twice. Each time seemed like a different experience.
