    Re: Christmas will cost you?

    It's simply a supply/demand situation. The demand for exclusive holiday fare is greater than they can provide. So, by making it a special event, they fill the demand. Tickets sell, and as stated above, it seems they sell well.
    If it continues, will there be bigger and better events for upcoming seasons? More live holiday shows, etc?
    i thought to myself, Halloween time, sounds fun... But I saw the upcharge and went to DCA.
    NOW, if I was a parent, I might have bought tickets.

    I am all for meeting the demand. Am I sad there's a separate charge? My wallet is, but if I want to go, I will pay.

    It's more of a "who figures Disneyland will be closed?" Closures aren't on the mind of a family from Iowa.

    that's true.. and i realized thanks to explodingboy, that any average disneyland visitor wouldn't know to look, they disneyland discussion board members who do know and also know better to look before we visit, we only think of it cause we know we should.

    I suppose, but I would assume most people would do a wee bit of looking into park events, hours, specials... Before committing

    Again, I'd give the rumor a little more credibility if it didn't seem like such a "Miceage exclusive". Maybe it is, or maybe someone can point me to other websites that are picking up on the rumor, since a bombshell like this is not likely to stay confined to one site.
    Anyway, I just checked the WDW official site, and it looks like this exclusive party is not the only way to see the parade at least. It is the only way to see it at night, since on some of the days that the party is not happening, you get not only the "Once Upon a Christmastime" parade, but also the MSEP. And the party is the only time when you can see the fireworks. If you want the best deal, and don't want to shell out the extra money, you can just plan to attend one of the non-party days(of which there are a few, for instance, the parties don't seem to happen at all on Wednesdays or Saturdays.). On those party days, maybe hit Universal.
    I say that Disney can go ahead and do all the upcharge parties they want in Anaheim during late November and early December, but they should keep their greedy hands off of those last two weeks of the season, and keep them the way they've always been.

    I went to two of the Halloween parties this year. They weren't that bad. The only time they were really crowded was during the overlap period when day patrons and party goers could be in the park at the same time.
