  1. Way too much money for us. We’re already paying $70 each for a party ticket. I can’t justify paying another $99 each for some desserts, character interaction, and a place to see the parade. The party already offers so many fun things already, and it’s not that hard to find spots to see the parade and fireworks. Honestly this one doesn’t appeal to me that much for several reasons.

  2. I’m intrigued by all the hard ticket events within hard ticket events. How very meta.

    It’s not lost on me that this event costs nearly twice as much as a normal meal at Cinderella’s Royal Table, and they’re only serving dessert. I usually object when people refer to restaurants as cash cows (because the overhead in food service is more substantial than people realize), but really. They’re minting money.

  3. That’s what I thought, too. There are so many things to enjoy at the party, I can’t imagine sitting around for desserts. But I’m also not a “show” fan, so the Lady Tremaine singing doesn’t appeal to me. I love the parade and Hallowishes a bunch, but I have never had an issue viewing either to warrant such a price. We’re just 2 people. I can’t imagine paying for a family of four or more. That’s encroaching on an annual pass for just me!

  4. Melissa – so true! I talked to Matt about it, and he (who does pricing for a living) even agreed that this just seems like straight up greed.

  5. I love how they say, “You’ll EVEN receive an autograph card and cup!” Wow, an autograph card! Take my $99!

    I’m still deciding if it’s worth it to attend MNSSHP this fall, so ain’t no way I’d be interested in this. It’s a neat idea, but the execution is doing nothing for me.

  6. We haven’t been in a couple years ourselves, instead focusing money on F&W. I think we paid for tickets to MNSSHP once, and the other 3 or so times we went with CM friends who had free tickets.
