Plus, they're not kicking you out of the park early to make way for the MNSHP crowd !Plus any time I can be heckled by Gaston is a good day at the parks.
Loving these cavalcades! Much easier to pause for two minutes to catch the drive by than sit and wait and try to see over the crowds' heads. I mean - a nighttime light parade is still a special spectacle, but I'd be okay with this regularly vs. a daytime parade. (Especially with so many characters out together.)
We just got back yesterday. It didn’t feel like Halloween at all. It was very stale the little pumpkins on the lamp posts were not enough to give the feel of fall. I mean, how much can bunting cost. Plus it’s already owned. They best not go too cheap on Christmas.
If you were a customer, would you pay full price for a pared down product?As mentioned several times in this thread, it's mostly a labor problem. Not the cost of labor, exactly, but having it available.
The lack of crowds and the party nights, which paid for the abundance of decorations, isn't exactly helping, either. If you were running a business that was just barely breaking even during this pandemic, would you be hiring a landscaper to completely re-landscape your business's property for a temporary, seasonal look?
In addition to what @MisterPenguin said, holiday services is a year round operation prepping and maintaining decorations and they were all furloughed for four months as well, so that was lost time to work on preparing decorations. So once again, they did what they could with their time, resources and the current climate.We just got back yesterday. It didn’t feel like Halloween at all.

For what it’s worth, expect more Xmas than we got for Halloween. Still not full tilt, but definitely more.I personally feel we are all very lucky to have ANYTHNG at all related to Halloween decorations up in the Park.
With everything that has been going on, i was honestly pleasantly surprised when MK went ahead and put up some of the decor regardless of the staffing issues and lower attendance.
I am no defender of 'Today's Disney', but i find this to be a nice gesture when in reality they may well have chosen not have done anything at all.
Anyone who was honestly thinking MK was going to go full out on decorating this year with the current situation in the world and no MNSSHP this season has not been paying attention.
I fully expect X-mas season decor to also be greatly diminished due to the same limitations, so folks had best accept that fact now and save themselves massive disappointment come November.
Just my thoughts on the matter.
