I went to my first Halloween party last year, and i really don't remember anyone asking to see my wristband or seeing huge groups of cast members checking for them. Maybe I was just obliviously happy to be at Magic Kingdom wearing a costume, I don't know!

Was there Friday night, and CMs asked multiple times at checkpoints and in lines for guests to show wristbands.

Okay - I wasn't the one that said they were making people leave at 6:50. I was stating that technically they could. FWIW - NOJ this year they closed lines with waits longer then 30 minutes at 6:30 so you couldn't join them - unless you had a FP.

We will just have to agree to disagree about if you can tell if someone deserves their HC placard or not by looking at them. My dad has a HC placard andnsome days he may look unworthy and other days you would wonder how he is still physically standing.

I'm sure that is the case - so many people are posting about it, I was just oblivious to it last year! Like I said, I was in my happy Disney daze, not looking for rule-violators!

If your wristband was visible as you walked by, then you would probably not have been asked. But you were being checked.

We had a member of our party last year wearing sleeves and she was asked several times to show her band.

What about kids under 3? My 2 year old niece will be with us and I couldn't find an option to purchase a ticket for kids under 3. I assume this means she is free? Does this mean no wristband?

Yes, she is free. I assume that would mean she won't need a wristband, but someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

No wristband required. Though I have had them give my then under 3 year old a bracelet because she just wanted one - she wanted to be like her sissa.

here is what we saw last year,

after entering @ 4pm, there were cm with the wristbands. they
were mob by those trying to get them as fast as they could.

the problem came from those milling around , acting as if they
were getting ready to leave the park. instead , once they
saw the person handling the wristbands out was mobbed,
they joined the crowd.

either make each person showed their ticket or have a
second cm watching those exiting from joining the
"crowd".

So your saying that there were people scamming the CM handing out the wrist bands? I would think that they hand one band out for every ticket the see?

We have been made to show our tickets before they handed us the wristband. If this happened, I don't think this is common at all, but a strange aberration.

They typically dontmask to see your ticket if youmgetmyour bracelet right after through the party turnstiles. If you get your bracelet in the park they ask and scan.
