    I hope they don't make it an upcharge event. Seems like that's the way they're going, though. Charge you again for everything.

    If the rumor is true then at least the last weeks between Christmas and New Years will not be upcharge events. As long as you can handle crowds then there's no need to feel the pinch.

    That's been a rumor for several years, nothing different this year. Since WDW has a ticketed event, DL will get one too.

    It's a pretty strong rumor (rumor only in the sense that Disney has not officially announced it, but from the reported talks at TDA it seems like its gonna happen). The twenty days of Candlelight Processional is a little test to see if the resort can handle the bottleneck crowds.

    Daytime Disneyland guests will still be able to ride Small World Holiday and Haunted Mansion Holiday. They will not be able to see fireworks, snow on Main Street, Castle/Tree lighting, or the Christmas Fantasy Parade (day guests will see SoundSational). All those holiday entertainments will be reserved for paying Christmas party guests.

    If this ends up happening, I'll be bummed a bit but looking at the big picture I won't really affect me too much. I tend to avoid the Resort during this time of the year as much as possible until the crowds simmer down in January.

    I haven't read that MiceAge article yet, but if they were to do this would those be the only perks? I can sort of see justifying a separate ticket for the Halloween Party event since there is plenty of entertainment and the whole park has something going on, but a separate ticket for fireworks and a parade? I can't really see that being a justifiable thing. What does WDW do for their Christmas shindig?

    There was another thread on this:

    Christmas Parade for exclusive party guests only?

    I think it sucks if it becomes so.

    They should do a virtual private party. Like all FP expire at 7:00 and the machines open back up for the hard ticket holders. Their ticket gets them special viewing for the candle light, parade and fireworks. Throw in a private christmas dinner option or something and I think you would end up pleasing everyone. Special perks for ticket buyers, and still give limited access to APs and normal day guests.
    In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.

    I could accept that. Personally, I'd be pretty peeved if I buy a day ticket and they kick me out just as evening starts. Evening at Christmas is *the* time to be there, and they want me to pay again?

    Every change I hear about makes me more inclined to not renew my pass. Having a pass isn't going to get me much anyway, so just pick the upcharge thing I want and skip paying for the day. You're not going to get the full day, anyway, if they kick you out early for the hard-ticket party, but they charge you for the full day.

    Really this isn't Disney's fault, it's the paying public. If the public doesn't pay, they won't do it. If they go to a pay event system next year and nobody goes then it'll be back to normal in 2014. All you can do is not give them a reward for changing it by staying home.

    Re: Christmas will cost you?

    It won't really effect me also. why? cause A) i don't attend the paying ticketed events cause i don't care.. and B) even if i am kicked out of the park early, no biggie there is a whole other park to go to! Being a APH i don't really see this as a problem to me, maybe for a paying customer it would be but i feel that if a customer wants to visit Disneyland they need to check out the events that are happening before hand that would close the park down and kick them out, therefore they can work around their visits and not pay for a full day but only get half.. just my opinion..

    cheeers, merry christmas!

    This wouldn't effect me either. I'm not the biggest fan of the parade and the fireworks. Don't really care about anything else. I think it sucks big time it could be a possibility, though.

    The average vacationer isn't going to have a clue to do that.
