    I just want to point out that the first one was a media invited event so a bunch of media was on hand for free. So “reviews” may be a bit skewed with that. It still looks like a great event but just wanted to add that perspective.

    Makes a person wonder how empty it might have been if the media hadn't been given free tickets!

    Has anyone found their night sold out? I would love to try this but my trip is in late January and I'm terrible with cold. I'd really like to wait until I have a better idea of what the weather will be like.

    I don’t think any of them have sold out yet

    No sell outs that have been reported, although with no online sales we’re 100% dependent on folks reporting from calling and finding out their date is sold out.

    But my guess is none have yet.

    Thank you, I'm just going to have to chance it selling out. I'd really like to go but it's just too much money to be miserable because of the temps. I'm really, really bad with cold weather.

    Yeah, Jan is so hit or miss. I keep track of MK DAH temps in the tables here: https://www.disboards.com/threads/d...-faq-discussion-thread.3713652/#post-59898156

    So looking at two years of Jan events, some have been nice and some downright chilly!

    This is just my opinion, so take it or leave it. It just seems to me the attractions open are minimal for a 3 hour EMH, especially when compared to the MK.

    Good point and exactly the reason I'll wait for some "real" reviews before booking for April!

    FWIW, Josh from easywdw was there and always purchases his own admission to these things. He hasn't posted his full review yet, but did post some pictures and a couple videos on his twitter feed during the event.

    Thanks! I did see Josh's tweets and I'm hoping he does a full review at some point. His perspective on things is usually pretty fair/accurate IMO.

    His new EMM at MK review just came out today. I expect he'll have DAH up this weekend.

    Any info if this will continue after April 3rd? I love AK, and will be there after April 4th. I would see do this in a heartbeat. I think animal kingdom is the most underrated park is Disney.

    Any one else think the first event was so empty because no one thought it would be a good value? I know I assumed everyone would be at FoP, and there would be 30 minute waits at least. I wonder if now that people see how empty it really is, they will sell better and it won't actually be that empty in the future.
