  • That’s awesome to hear, Jennifer. Ok, I will happily take off my customized Mickey ears for my Halloween costume (keeping it a secret) at MNSSHP and wear the Glow with the Show ears during the shows at the party!

  • Am I right in assuming they won’t work for Hallo-Wishes, but what about Celebrate the Magic during a MNSSHP night (after 10/19)?
