So, our short October trip was initially booked because we were going to try for the 10/6 event. We’d kind of written the special events off as not going to happen, but it appears that they’re still holding the dates at HS on Tuesday, September 15, 2020; Tuesday, September 22, 2020; and Tuesday, October 6, 2020.
Given the fact that, except for opening days at MK and HS every single other day (including the entire Thanksgiving weekend and 12/24-12/26 and New Year’s Eve) still has full availability for reservations, I’m wondering if a free event might not actually be busier than the park during the day just because it’s free.
Does anyone have any thoughts? We haven’t done any of these events before, so I don’t know how busy they actually are, but they always sell out. Do we think they’ll limit the tickets even further to preserve the “specialness” of the event, or will they just do the normal since it’s free so nobody can complain?
Also, how much harder is it going to be to get tickets, given that all of the events in June, July, and August were cancelled? We figured this would be higher demand anyway, since it’s HS, but how prepared should I be to get shut out?
Lastly, given the fluid nature of planning at the moment, if they cancel the event within 30 days (when we normally wouldn’t be able to cancel without the points going into “holding”, which means they couldn’t be banked for next year) do you think they’d be more flexible on the cancellation policy? This one isn’t a real concern, since all but 10 of the points were 2019 points and would be expiring anyway, but I like to get my ducks in a row.
