I can't see us doing this on our April trip, one of those days is already a MK day for us, so for our two MK days on the trip the park is open until 11pm and 12am which makes for a long day to begin with.

April 28th is our MK day. Would this change move it to a non recommend day just like with normal EMH?

More details on the page...check in starts at 7:00....so it looks like it will span 6 or 7 hours of admission. Maybe this makes sense if you wanted one day to hop in a weeklong vacation? Oh and take note an ice cream and bottled beverage is included in the price.:RpS_biggrin:

If you wanted one day to hop in a weeklong vacation it would be WAY less to add Park Hopper and an 8th day to your ticket. You'd have enough left over to buy enough ice cream to make yourself vomit.

I think it would possibly make sense for someone vacationing elsewhere in FL that wants to go to Disney for a day. We did the beach and Legoland, but just couldn't pass up seeing Disney while in FL. We bought MNSSHP tickets so we could do 4-12 at a cheaper cost than a one day ticket. Not sure if charging more than a one day ticket for a 7-2am entrance (one less hour than a party) would ever make more sense than just buying a one day and having a good touring plan. The only way I would consider it in that situation is if they severely limit the number of guests to keep lines down, which I doubt they will do.

I still don't see that as a better "value" than a regular season one day ticket to the MK at $117 or whatever, where you enter the park at 8:45am, tour with almost no lines until 10am, and then you can stay in the park for potentially 14-15 more hours after that. I suppose, though, like most luxury purchases, it's not supposed to make "sense."

To all those who attend: have a blast! My family of 4 will keep our $600. So we can give it to the mouse in some other capacity!! :RpS_laugh:

I'm clearly not the right marketing demographic for this type of ticket. It just makes me tired and cranky thinking about having to stay up that late. I'm sure that the family staying at the Poly bungalows who don't wake up until 11 am and don't get to the parks until 1pm would be a better fit? Maybe?
But hey, there will be ice cream and bottle drinks! How can you pass that up?

I find it a little odd that there's no big "hook" or theme to draw people in.
Not even a promise of rare characters or a dj/dance party. A special pin even.
It just doesn't make it seem very exciting or exclusive. Just "give us lots of money and we'll kick out the riff raff for a few hours in the middle of the night."
Not exactly Disney marketing at its finest.

I'm sure the CMs are thrilled about having to show everyone who's not participating the exit.

Have you ever been in a situation at work where some boss or supervisor or board member who ranks above you but knows nothing says "I think we should do it this way". And you explain all the reasons why it won't work but they refuse to listen. So you finally give up and say "screw it lets do it your way and see what happens" when secretly you know it will be a disaster.

I feel like that may be what happened here. I mean I know nothing about the ins and outs of Disney operations. And I'm sure there will be some first timers who buy these tickets. But I can't see the event getting good reviews after the fact. Anyone with children under the age of 8ish isn't going to want to stay out till 2 am. If they pack it as full as party nights with no "extra" characters or parade to draw crowds away from the rides it's going to be miserable. They would have to really limit the number of tickets to make it worth the cost. And then how is it worth it for Disney if they don't make enough to cover the expense of staying open later? Maybe I'm missing something. Obviously I'm not the target demographic for this but I just don't see how this is a good thing - for Disney or the guests.

Maybe management figures if they have to stay open later they may as well be getting a premium for it. It's a good way to squeeze more out of the guests while they take time to close things down; I'm sure most restaurants and many shops will not be open during the extra hours.

Only Casey's & starbucks open if you want anything more than your free ice cream.
It lists a few Eticket rides & " many more" but I'm sure they will limit the rides operating too.
Hope this does crash & burn so they don't see this weak offering as the way of the future (double the price of a themed party at a fraction of the cost/ guests willing to pay big bucks for EMH)

and extra magical pixie dust?

The event is only one night a week starting from 10pm or 11pm. It will be chance for offsite guests to experience lower crowds without staying onsite. It's way too expensive for my family and we are more rope drop touring & early in bed type but it will appeal to some. Fast passes for parades and wishes are gone - hopefully it will create extra work for impacted cast members. The rest of the visitors should notice no difference. If they sell very large number of tickets it may be busier after 7 pm. It's not something that I will be interested in but I don't see it as big deal.

They may let the day guests stay after 10 but not let them ride George? That's what they do in normal magic hours, isn't it?

I hope this is not indication of what the cost of MNSSHP will be. Hopefully the high price is linked to the small number of tickets they plan to sell

We will be there for the May 5 and May 8 dates, but I won't be buying tickets for my family. For $600 plus tax we can buy a lot of ice cream and pop while we are at MK during the day. $600 is almost as much as our plane tickets cost for all 4 of us --- depending on where you are staying you could add 1-3 days on to your trip for that kind of money for a family of 4! Maybe there are aiming it at wealthy locals without young kids?
