    Any time there's a reduction in operating hours, it's basically a ticket price increase... Cleverly disguised, but an increase nonetheless...

    They don't. People are to stay on property and never leave .... and please stay for 10 days .... by then you should be near broke .... so go home and start saving even more for you next trip, because by the time you can come back, the folks in corporate should have figured out some new magical ways to have you and your family part with your money ....

    $149 is insane! WHAT THE?!

    Can someone answer this please..
    Didn't they use to charge for EMH but it was pretty cheap. Like 10$ or something?

    Yes - It was less than $15. People were discussing on the first page of this thread if I recall...

    This will be the first night for this.. reports are that tickets have not sold out. So, that says something.

    I would think that people on site, won't likely pay as they have their own after hour events included in their resort stay.. and people off site are already not interested in any extra spending, which is why they are off site in the first place. As someone that now stays offsite, I wouldn't spend the $50 an hour. I would imagine those that do spend the money, should find the crowd level low and Disney will have to decide if it's all worth it in the end.

    I suspect the first thing Disney would do to increase income, if ticket sales remained too low, would be to limit what attractions would be opened.

    Either that or they are going to have to sell it harder.
    I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

    I've actually read that DVC members received an offer for this as a free option, so it sounds like its not selling like they thought it would.

    I hope there is some truth to that, maybe they are finding an upper limit on what people will pay for things.

    Emails did go out yesterday to those on site on points, it was first come first serve and was full by last night. The offer was for tonight, April 14th only.

    We ever figure out what the cap is for this event? Pictures from last night show the park as basically empty, if it was full, then the "cap" number has gotta be pretty small.

    The cap was reportedly reached last night with the help of the free offer for DVC members. Many sources say CMs confirmed the attendance cap is 3,000.

    Being really honest? I would do it. Last night looked amazing and with 25 attractions open, completely worth it. 7pm-2am is 7 HOURS! For $150, that's only a little over $20/hour.

    I'm in...sign me up! I don't think I'm going to be back for at least two years, but I'd love to see them continue if they are capping it at 3k. It's almost like having the park to yourself! I think I'd prefer the evening add on to the morning...especially in the warmer months.

    I totally agree. Heat and sun are not my friends. I get migraines and they can ruin several days of vacation. This sounds like bliss to me.

    Hold on a minute, now if the cap is 3000 and it is from 7PM to 2AM I am definitely in. However, I probably won't buy a regular day park ticket at all. I would so go down and do MK and even another park if they offered it if this is the case and do Sea World, Busch Gardens, Kennedy Space Center or Universal on a few other days and call it a trip.....Actually sounds like a lot of fun. Please tell me there are no FP+ reservations during this event and I may jump out of my seat. Maybe I need to get in on this before they discontinue it. lol

    No FP available during the event, but you can use FP from 7pm until "official" park close.

    There are only a handful of dates right now. If you can get in soon, do it because I imagine the event will get "tweaked" if they decide to continue it and it won't look quite the same in the future.

    I saw reports of people on rides alone.. my favourite photo was a selfie of a women on Dumbo and the only others on with her were cast members.

    Fun for the guests, but I imagine that looks like excessive headcount to Disney management.

    This ^^^ is how it would work best. Won't this take some people who would purchase packages and allow them an easy out to stay off property and go other places and only visit disney one night instead??? Doesn't this go against their whole "we want to keep you on property and buying everything all the time" philosophy??

    I think the business principle of making more money off less people supercedes that...

    Disney developed this program specifically to market to off property guests.

    Maybe for one person it may be worth it.....$150 for 3 hours of unlimited rides with a small attendance as stated being 3,000 people....but I don't see a family of 4 paying $600 for tickets to do this for 3 hours. However, maybe they will? It seems a little much, but that's just my opinion.

    Someone mentioned that on the 14th, they had access from 7pm - 2am? That was longer than the 3 hours that was mentioned in the announcement. Unless I read it incorrectly.
