These prices just make me want to vomit.


It’s 4 hours. Is Boo Bash 3 hrs? If so they are charging a lot more for that extra hour. And wow, a whole ten doll hairs off for AP and DVC mbrs.


I went from “I can’t wait” to “let’s pump the brakes REAL quick” when I saw those prices


:joy::joy::joy: I always say doll hairs when I say dollars in my head and sometimes out loud.

Same. I was really excited for it and have done DAH and MVMCP numerous times in the past, but nope. Disney has found my limit.


@melcort10, I think you were waiting for this information.

The article linked said something about holiday layovers (that doesn’t sound right)… I know they do this at HM-DL. Are they going to do this in WDW and only during the party hours? Does anyone know?

over lays…

jingle cruise, hopefully space mountain and speedway like in the past, but i won’t get my hopes up

Just eat a Mickey Bar every 6 minutes and this pays for itself.


That sounds fun! I hope it’s not just during party hours b/c I’m not paying for that :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

lol, i might actually do the math on this

So my family of 4 on Dec 5th would cost $836
That’s 146.9 Mickey Ice Cream bars (lets say 147)
That’s 36.75 per hour, so each of us would have to eat 9ish per hour

I accept this challenge


We were discussing this the other day in the Boo Bash thread.

I guessed ticket prices would be $149-$199. Did not think WDW would go over $200 for a special event that was so large in scale. Boy, was I wrong?

Hey, what do I know? It is a 4-hour party and there will be a special fireworks show and the return of an actual parade. Guess they figure folks will pay $249 for a parade.

oof. I’m out. I can’t swing that. Even solo.


Parades are supposed to be free!

Not this person! I know we’ve discussed the erosion of goodwill before, but to me this is another example of that. Obvious money grab. Especially bc it’s well beyond their old event prices that were also very high, but a little easier to justify. I’m really sick of being disappointed by WDW and the direction the parks are headed.
