Unleash the Villains and capacity?

I realize this is a one-of-a-kind event so there's no precedent... but should we be worried about not being able to get in? I know it's at such a slow time of year but it sounds like a lot of people are going out of their way to go to this.

We were initially planning on going to the MNSSHP because it was on Friday the 13th so we have a Crystal Palace reservation at 3:55PM. We were just going to have a late morning, get to MK around 1-2PM, have our meal and head DHS right after. So we'd probably get there around 6PM.

I'm probably just being paranoid but I also don't want to miss out on this. My other option is to do a 50's Prime Time reservation for 2:20PM which would put us there much earlier than we want to be.

I absolutely would not worry about DHS filling to capacity, or anywhere near it. Given how poorly LTM has been received this year, I wouldn't expect this to be much different. Yes, the Villains are popular. But this is the off-season. And although many people on boards like this might be going, they represent a very small minority of park guests. I wouldn't expect this to be any more crowded than a summer EMH night.

I don't know about that. Beings disney TA as well as a member of many boards while I don't think it will be at capacity this will be this yrs most popular event. I know of hundreds of families going just on this board & face book not to mention the ones on other boards.. Ppl will see it as a free Halloween event &villain appearances are very few are far between so I have a feeling this will end up being big... Again possibly not capacity but definitely crowded.. I myself will be there & plan on reporting.. Besides that with free dining being such a shirt window for that time a yr I wonder what that's going to do for the crowds even tho it's normally a slow time of yr..

I think it is going to be packed. I don't know about it hitting capacity, but I think it is going to be terribly crowded. Magic kingdom closes early for the Halloween party, animal kingdom closes early in general, and Epcot closes at 9. So honestly, I think a ton of people who otherwise may not even care about the event are going to head to Hollywood studios due to the early closing time at the other parks.

I'm thinking I should just change my reservation anyway. The Crystal Palace reservation is not a must do because it wouldn't be the first time we've been there and I wouldn't be surprised if trying to get there around 6PM would be chaos.

There's also the pin trading event bringing more people to the area so I'd just rather not risk it. If anything, it'll give us a way to not have to waste a lot of time just getting to and into the park.

I think it is going to be packed as well, based on the interest on boards. We are gonig to MNSSHP on Tuesday and have plans on Friday to hop from MK to DHS---if we can get in!

I think that's a smart move. It may or may not break capacity thresholds, but I'm confident it will be very, very busy.

Personally, I would stick with CP and MNSSHP. So many people will be going to DHS for the Free Event, I bet MNSSHP will have VERY LOW crowds! I think it would be worth it to pay for the MNSSHP ticket!

Do you mean DHS event? There is no Epcot event that I know of. No waiting list, just show up with thousands of others.

They have announced LE merchandise. Hoping its not going to be like AK and Epcot anniversary where you can only get it in one place that has mile long lines!

Here's the link to the RoE event at Epcot. It looks like most are sold out though.

I think you'll find that this event will be pretty busy. I remember how busy non-party nights get for Wishes so while the crowds are lower and spread between 4 parks, when a special one time event pops up I would expect to see the crowds head in the same direction. It may not be to capacity, but I am positive it will be packed for that time of year.

To your question, it depends on if you want to be there at the start or risk long lines to see the characters and such. If you would rather be there early, change the ressie to 50's PTC, if meeting the characters is less important than keep the original ressie.

I am thinking that it will be busy, but not crazy. There are plenty of TS ADR's available at DHS for next Friday evening. If it was going to be that busy, there would be nothing left at this point, yet last night we got a great time reserved for dinner at HBD. All TS had availability when I searched!
