Wow! Halloween is getting closer now that we have some info about pricing for APs and event day purchases.

Has anyone been able to confirm if Disney VISA holders have been able to purchase tickets at this time?

Thanks-

That's why I figured I'd come on here to post a warning. I ordered first thing this morning, about 5 minutes after the tickets came up. And since then I have pretty much been sitting on pins and needles. *grumbles*

Last year they came within an hour, but not a delay like that.

The AP site says you can order tickets by phone at (714) 781-4400.

I *think* that's how Disney Visa holders could get their tickets last year too when the AP sale started, but I am not totally sure if I remember right.

I'm pretty pleased with the AP discount! We got our tickets and will be very excited to see how this whole thing plays out now that it's in Disneyland.

How do you all think the crowds will be during the daytime on party days? I would think if I had a hopper or regular ticket that I wouldn't choose to use it on a day where I'd be kicked out at 6 pm. That could make those days in the park pretty light.

What do you think?

I tend to think the opposite way. Kicking people out at 6 p.m. or 7 p.m. on MHP nights is really not all that bad, when you look at it. If people get into the park at 8 a.m. on those days - or even 9 a.m. - they have all the way until 6 p.m. or 7 p.m. to have fun in DL. If DL were kicking people out at 1 p.m., I might think differently. But everyone will still be able to get a pretty full day if they have to leave at 6 p.m. or 7 p.m. Many folks don't stay at DL until the nighttime hours anyway.

Also, when I was at DL on the Miley Cyrus b-day weekend 2 years ago, DL had to close early for non-party guests and kick people out (just like for the MHP), but they opened the park extra early on her party day (Sunday), and DLR was pretty hoppin' and busy in the morning when we were walking around. I think lots of people crammed into DL earlier that day to get in all their rides before having to make way for Miley.

I am guessing that Tuesdays will be less crowded in the daytime because people will be working. On Fridays, people often find excuses to leave early or take the whole day off, so I think Friday will be a busier day overall - in the daytime and at night during the MHP.

YOu can call the number and get tickets if you are a Disney Visa card holder. I did but be prepared it takes awhile to get through and for them to process.
It will be Oct 22 for us

That is our hope! We're set for a Tuesday evening.

If the Halloween party is on Friday October 1st....how late do you think DCA will be open that night?

I haven't checked out the WOC thread (because it's pretty long and I know almost nothing about the show)....but do you guys think WOC will be showing that night?

I'm don't have an AP so I will have to wait to get our tickets. My questions is what day we should go? I was thinking along the same lines as Sherry E but not sure now. The 12th (Tues) AP discount was given and was the day I thought we would go. But now I'm not sure, thinking we might go on the 15th. You don't think Tuesday will be more or just as crowded since the discount is given? What day do you think would be the best day for our 6 Princesses, October the 12th or 15th?

Phew me too! Funny though because I haven't even decided yet if I'm going (we are 2 adults with no kids) but when I thought we might not be able to go, all of a sudden I REALLY wanted to! What's with that!

It's really funny. If you don't buy tickets to MHP while the party is going on you are going to wish you had bought them . I think it's best to buy tickets cause it's something someone will really regret later if you hadn't .

And of course, I could be way wrong - we all could be in for a total surprise with crowd levels after World of Color descends on us next week - but I can't help but think that Tuesdays will still be a bit less packed and busy than Fridays are.

I know this World of Chaos situation is still a big question mark - we have no idea what kinds of crowds it will attract or will it not live up to expectations right away. We have no clue if Disney is planning to run it on a Fantasmic-like schedule throughout the year. But my guess is yes. They probably spent a pretty penny on this spectacle, and they don't want to 'shove it away in a closet' just a few months after debuting it. I think they want the HalloweenTime and Christmastime crowds to see it. I think World of Color will be open on that night of October 1st. I think Disney is figuring that anyone who does not attend the MHP will naturally just wander over to DCA to see World of Color. I'm guessing DCA will be open pretty late (not until midnight, but long enough for all the WoC shows to finish).

Discount or no discount, people still have to work. Many of the AP holders who bought MHP tickets with the AP discount probably live locally and can come to DLR after work, so it may pick up at night for the party itself. But I can't help but think the daytime October crowds in DL will be less crowded on a Tuesday than on a Friday. And yet, there are school breaks and Columbus Day and everything happening by or before the middle of October, so the overall crowd level may be higher in the first two weeks of October than in the second two weeks.

It's so hard to predict!! But, one thing is that World of Color starts one week form tonight. Once reports start coming in about that show and what kinds of crowds are there, we will be able to tell if it is, indeed, a huge hit and the crowds for both parks have skyrocketed in general, or if it's not really attracting the number of people that was expected...and that may give us a good indication of what October looks like.

The good thing is that the tickets will be on sale for a while. Even if, for some reason, the AP pre-sale tickets all sell out right away, if people really want to go to MHP they can buy the regular tickets available to the general public on July 16th...or they can buy 'day-of-event' tickets in the worst case scenario. True, the AP prices are cheaper by quite a bit at least there are still options for people to get the MHP tickets later on if they haven't made their decision yet.

I haven't made my final decision yet, either. I know it will be cool to have MHP in DL, but I don't think it will be cool enough for me to spend $54 or $59. But I have to mull it all over for a while until I can make up my mind.
