No I think they just hit the kill switch at the last possible moment to claim victory

I think the "Disney rationalization" is that you can get on more attractions during these events than trying to use the failed Genie+ system during the regular park day. And there is also the free treats !

You can try Guest Relations when you're down there. I've heard anecdotally of people who've been able to purchase last minute.

Generally no, but it doesn't hurt to ask at Guest Relations (not the ticket windows) day-of.

Does anyone know if they ever have day of tickets available? We have family joining us that didn’t purchase and now find the June 13th event sold out :(

Correct. This is about the same timeframe as when they cut them off last year.

I could be 100% wrong on this, but I've been under the impression that additional dates will not be announced for 2024. These AH events at DHS already run into MNSSHP season, and adding more dates during that time (or into November/December and MVMCP) would run the risk of cannibalizing sales of those tickets.

How long do you think it will take to announce dates for September
