    Re: Christmas will cost you?

    I don't really mind either way on this. If they do make it a ticketed event, I will definitely attend because it will be a chance to go during the holidays when it isn't as croweded and get some exclusive stuff as well. I just hope they realize that there are more holidays at this time of year besides Christmas.

    right. i know.. but maybe they'd see in the calendar that the park is closed early a certain day and maybe ask disneyland why such closure and then they get the clue that a half day is not a good day to go to disneyland.. i dnt know.. but do the cm's at the ticket booths tell customers that the park closes early for such events?

    Special events cost more.
    If it was my thing, I'd pay for it.
    I just might.

    you are welcome.
    Happy holidays

    I would say 9/10 people aren't going to look at the calender, and if they do they probably aren't going to call the Resort to ask. I agree, they should. But I don't think most people will know still.

    but do the cm's at the ticket booths tell customers that the park closes early for such events?
    I don't think they CM's at the front gate say anything, there should be signs in the esplanade though. That's how they've done it with the Halloween Party.

    Re: Christmas will cost you?

    ^ yeah but what if a family traveling from texas buys their tickes online and then goes to the park that day and finds out they only get half a day with their pre-bought tickets.. yeah they could go to DCA, but if they don't know ahead of time before they buy the tickets .. never mind i don't know where i was going with that and i lost my train of thought..

    Re: Christmas will cost you?

    When we planned our vacation from the MidWest to WDW when I was a kid, there was no checking with Disney about anything. Not checking on park hours, or what attractions are open, nothing. You just go. I doubt much has changed for the average guest on a once-in-a-lifetime Disney vacation. You get as far as "Christmas at Disney would be awesome" and you go.

    Re: Christmas will cost you?

    I guess I'm the exception then. Both of my Christmastime themepark vacations were well planned in advance. I did a lot of research, so that my 2007 vacation to WDW, and my 2008 vacation to DL were as magical as they could be.

    Information on park hours, attraction closers, and much more has always been available. In the past you could get trip planners via US Mail or vacation info by phone call, in today's world of vacation planning it's amazingly simple to plan.

    Anyone who doesn't take advantage of the planning resources available to them, has no one to blame but themselves for any closer issues.

    Regardless, they will still blame Disney. Hardly anyone takes credit for their actions anymore.

    And who do you think is going to flip the bill for all those non-purchased tickets in 2014? Not Disney. Besides, we all know that will never happen. There's a reason why Disney isn't the only theme park company using this model.

    The problem is that people have had six decades of conditioning by Disney, and heck, by all the other theme parks, that the holidays mean expanded hours and special entertainment, for everyone. Also, I've read these rumors about the upcharge holiday event in three places: Miceage, Micechat, and the Miceage "Micebook" Facebook page. Also, Al, with all due respect, inaccurately predicted this before in this article from 2 years ago:
    Pyro & Parades? Pay Up! - MiceAge.com
    Has the rumor gained any traction anywhere other than the "Mice" websites/board/Facebook page? And if late 2013 comes and this still does not happen, well how many chances do I give Al before I can say that he's been "crying wolf", at least on this? (I'm really surprised that I seem to be the only one who remembers that article for November 2010. I was really relieved when the 2011/12 season came and went with no upcharge event, but now, well we'll see).

    Bingo. And not only conditioning but tradition, expectation and -- sadly irrelevant with today's Disney Corporation -- trust.

    I understand the frustration, but Al doesn't cry wolf, he reports what's happening inside the Company at the time. Unfortunately the Company often resembles a room full of wannabe comics simultaneously performing the "Who's on First" routine as various departments try to top each other for the approval of an audience of grim-faced corporate management. Communication and consistency are the first casualties in Disney's culture of interdepartmental brinksmanship, political game playing, reactive buttcovering, fingerpointing and spindoctoring.

    Re: Christmas will cost you?

    Have you been to the park this Christmas season? I was there from Nov 17-21st. The crowds at night on Main Street and Hub were beyond massive. People were standing in the middle of Main Street at 6pm to get a spot for the fireworks. I was initially against the pay for Christmas idea but when I saw that it changed my mind. I am all for paying for a night of less crowds to see the Fireworks, snow and parade. The rest of the nights I can go to DCA and have a great time.

    Ah, but judging from reports, the pay for Halloween events were just as packed as the day crowds. Will it be worth it if that is the case?

    Well the first few years of the Halloween event were actually VERY good as far as crowds but then it became popular and now its worse.

    But being that the Halloween event was the first of its kind...this Xmas event will probably be just as the Halloween event is now..pretty crowded but still not as crowded as the most popular regular day at Disneyland.

    Regardless, I would really hate to see all the Xmas entertainment and the like go to a ticket event....very sad.
