no the prices posted so far are for AP holders only, the regular ticket sales will be different prices they aren't on sale yet

Yay! I woke up to feed the baby and saw that my husband got our tickets (and fixed the mouse on my laptop ). It looks like we'll be in Disneyland on October 12th.

Thank you so much for posting the info, Shimmer! It's great to know exactly what prices we are dealing with - both in terms of what the regular prices will be for the general public (on July 16th) and also the pre-sale tickets now.

I was mainly looking for the regular prices (because I don't have an AP right now). $54 or $59 is sort of what I expected, but I was hoping it wouldn't be that much. It don't know if it's worth it for me or not. See, if I knew that there was going to be anything else extra-special besides the fireworks at MHP, I might do it. Right now, I em envisioning candy and some fireworks, and very long lines to take pictures with Villains. I think I can probably skip it and just do 'regular' HalloweenTime days. But I will play it by ear.

It's not very clear the way it's laid out, is it? I noticed that, too, that the way they have the dates broken up is peculiar. I think they could have organized it a little differently. You'll be able to get a ticket for the MHP for 10/5 even if you're not an AP holder. Those nights indicated (October 1, 5, 12, 19, 26) are just the nights for which an AP can be used for a discount (in other words, an AP discount can only be used on certain nights but not all MHP nights, I guess). But you can certainly go on 10/5 even without an AP. You will just have to pay the $54 or whatever it is.

So are the $54 and $59 the regular prices that will go on sale on 7/16? Or are those just the 'day of event' prices? Well, in any case, if $44 is the AP discount pre-order price, and $54/$59 is the day-of-event price for Tuesday or Friday, then the prices of the general sale tickets that go on sale on July 16 will probably be about $5.00 - $6.00 more than the AP price (that's usually about what the difference is). So I am guessing the general sale tickets will be in the range of $50.00 if you buy them in advance, and then $54/$59 if you get them on the day of the event.

I don't think I can justify spending money on a Hopper that covers one of the MHP days and then also spending $50 or $60 on a MHP ticket for one of those days, too. In other words, let's say I made a 3-day trip to DLR in early October and I didn't have an AP. I would probably buy a Hopper to cover all days BUT the day of the MHP. So I would get a 2-day Hopper and enjoy DL and DCA, and then on the day of the MHP, I would just get a separate ticket for the MHP - BUT I would go into DL right at 3 p.m. or 4 p.m. or whatever and I would wander around DTD or enjoy the hotels or do something else with my time earlier that day, until it was time for the MHP.

Last year there was no discount to anyone for day of event tickets so I would think the general public ticket prices will be $54/$59. I'm kinda surprised that there isn't a purchase in advance price for all dates but the 29 & 31. Last year you got about $5 off the "at the gate" price if you bought ahead of time for all the parties but the Halloween weekend ones.

Oh my mickey, I hope not. Though that is the way it looks by what's posted. I'm hoping it's just poor wording, that's the only day we can go.

No. Those are the only dates AP holders can get discounted tickets.

I agree with this interpretation. On the AP page at the DL website it says that the AP discount is only for certain nights, meaning some nights, while AP holders can still purchase in advance, they will not get a discount.

From the website: "Annual Passholders can now take advantage of a special opportunity to purchase advance tickets and save on select nights" and "Advance purchase savings available with valid Annual Passport for specified event nights only."

So the prices of $54/$59 are the regular (non-discounted) prices for everyone.

I think it is just poor wording...it doesn't say anywhere that there are special AP nights, just that select nights AP holders can get a discount on tickets. So I think you are good to go MattsPrincess!

I had really wanted to attend this year, but even with the discount, it is too much for my family of 4.

I wish they could tell us how many tickets are offered for each night, that way we could get an idea about crowds

My e-tickets arrived over 12 hours after ordering. I was really getting worried. So much for "a couple of minutes." *sighs*

Now to decide on a costume. I originally wanted to be a chipmunk. But now a friend of mine says he's coming. He wants to go as Doctor Facilier and is trying to talk me into joining him as Mama Odie.

Oh gosh, Vala! I was just coming on here to ask people how long it took for their e-tickets to arrive, because I just ordered mine, and they said they should arrive "within minutes". I've been sitting here for 20 minutes waiting for an email, starting to get very nervous! I've done Disney e-tickets before and have always received them pretty much right away. TWELVE HOURS? Wow.
