I doubt it will happen, but I wish this meant they were adding DHS to Wednesdays.

What is the thought on effect on daytime crowd levels at those parks.

Given the low numbers attending, or even eligible, I don’t think it would make much difference.

If true, I don’t know what to say….

Right another “perk”

I don’t know if that article is true but if they changed the deluxe extra hour date to allow for group access for the teams, I think everyone should be upset. Why would these groups have access to something other value/moderate guests do not have?

Totally agree, if they are opening it up— then open it up to all hotel guests!

That’s crap for other guests staying moderate and value. I get it that the kids are tied up all day in competition and only have evening hours to explore the parks, but Disney should have just given them their own night and sold them a special ticket for it.

I went looking yesterday……

This is the website KtP mentions

There is no mention of a Friday night event that I can see? KtP states it is under the FAQs. I do see a reference to a Sunday night event.

It’s on page 6/10 of the FAQs, which is on the right of the various tabs on that home page:

From that:

Is there a Celebration Party or Extended Hours this season?
Yes! We are excited to bring back the Extended Park Hours on Friday night as well as the Celebration Party on Sunday night! These are included for those on the Hotel Travel Package. Those attending the Celebration Party, do not need a Theme Park reservation on their ticket for that event. For commuters, you can purchase tickets for the Celebration party.

And I also found mention of the Sunday event under the section Hotel Travel Package / Pricing Information.

I found the Sunday reference but I missed that!

Blech. That is kind of lousy for both the deluxe guests who are eligible and about to have their after hours run over by a bunch of teenage girls. Was there once and while most before, a lot swore like sailors, wouldn’t move because they were constantly texting and a few even tried to do their high kicks in line. And it’s terrible for the Moderate and Value guests missing out.
