With Al's latest update something that I have been hoping that would never come to Disneyland looks like it will make its way. I figured the way Candlelight was going this year TDA had plans to make the parade, fireworks, and snow an exclusive event. This has become a tradition for many families and coming to Disneyland for their holiday vacation only to find out there is no parade or fireworks is not going to go well. We are already paying high prices and are now getting less.
I was upset about Halloween Screams being taken away but it was only that event. The Halloween parties still had more exclusives that weren't offered to normal guests in years past. Hearing more reports of overcrowding and negative reviews of the Halloween party that I have now decided to skip it. Why take away something that I have paid for in the past and now try and sell me more to see those events? Greed? Not to mention this is the time that most tourists come and try to get them out of the park to let the separate ticket guests in is going to create a crowd control nightmare.
I really hope that Candlelight doesn't go over so well and TDA rethinks their plans. If there is a separate ticket event starting next year then I'll save money by not renewing next October. I have always factored the Christmas events into the price of renewing.
