Like they do at every major zoo now?

Not everyone has a family of 4 and not all up-charge events are meant for everyone.

Doesn't bother me. The only way upcharge events ever really bother me is if they interfere with the other guests' time. Much like the daytime one, this sounds like it'll cause limited interference, so I'm fine with it. It's not something I'd ever pay that price for. But it's a small capacity tour, which means that Disney only has to attract people from a very small group, a group that's willing to pay a crazy price for something like this. So basically, I'm not interested and over 99% of guests won't be, but that < 1% who are will make this upcharge tour successful.

Someone should work out how much it would cost for a family of four to do *all* the recent upcharge events in one trip.
