    for the DIS 20th event - which was the EPCOT party, you did NOT need a park ticket on top of the party ticket - but then you obviously couldn't enter the park until the party time

    For both parties I’ve gone to (diagon alley in 2015 and the 20th at Epcot) park admission was not required since the party began after regular park operational hours ended.

    I’m glad you like it. You’re actually the first person I’ve heard suggest that it was designed as a kiddie ride. That’s interesting.

    I wouldn’t call it a kiddie ride. I’d call it an immersive family ride though. I enjoy it but wish it were longer. I wouldn’t wait more than 20 minutes for it.

    I think that's fair. When I say "walk on" I mean 15-ish minutes because even a FP line can sometimes take that long depending on the ride and the loading system.

    it's a dark ride on a boat - just like all the other dark rides on a boat that are appropriate for the entire family - meaning toddlers included. Think "it's a small world".

    Just thought of another question: since this is an after-hours event, will there still be Disney buses to take us to/from a "closed" park?

    I recall from the EPCOT event at the 20th they had to work out transportation because, as you indicate, normally there wouldn’t be Disney buses available

    In the end the team arranged for private buses to bring people back (for a small additional charge) and also people on the boards arranged “car pools” amongst those who would have cars

    I assume this will be like the last event and a dedicated thread will be started for the event and we will all get into Uber planner mode and continually ask for more details much earlier than John will have them :D

    - Wait - people can't use Lyft, or MinnieVans, or regular cabs? :crazy:

    and continually ask for more details much earlier than John will have them

    Wait - that's a thing?

    Sorry - could NOT resist! :o :teeth: :tongue:

    Ok, it’s October. Where’s the info, John? (hehehehehe!)

    I just hope it’s out before the big ticket change. The AK/meet is 2 days before our trip, so we might add a few days depending on the details. I’ve been anxiously waiting for more info and prices so we can finalize our plans. Fingers crossed!

    Anyone have a guess based on prior events on how fast it will sell out? I'm out of the country next week when they will likely announce. I've already got a trip planned for August, so would love to get tickets for this Dis event!

    The DAP 2015 Diagon Alley party sold out in about 3 weeks if I remember correctly. That was a crazy week when it was announcened because PCC 6.0 was announced at nearly the same time. The Epcot party did not sell out from what I remember.

    Unless this has a much lower max number I wouldn't worry too much about it selling out in a week or anything

    John said hopefully on Tuesday’s show he’d be able to announce everything. He was waiting for the contract to be signed.
