The eggnog is made from platypus eggs. Very expensive. But delicious.

I'm sure it's only this expensive because the hot chocolate powder mix is more expensive 👀

I think last year was the first year where it seemed like they'd actually restricted the amount of tickets sold, with people reporting that crowd levels were much better in the parties.

Im certainly not a Disney pro/expert, nor have long history of crowds, but MVMCP in early Dec 2022 seemed incredibly packed compared to what MK was during the day. My wife and I both think that was the busiest we've seen MK for us.

In the late 2010's they were, after Bob the Lesser got his claws into things. Not so much in the first half of the decade.

Not to be 'that guy', but weren't Christmas parties notoriously oversold in the 2010s, which is one reason they doubled the price and restricted the number of tickets to improve the guest experience, but not lose profits?

In 2014, there were 19 party dates. The most expensive night (December 19) was $74/person. Every other date was either $67/person (advanced purchase) or $71/person (same day/non-discounted dates). The same "premium date" this year is $219/person, with the cheapest ticket being $159/person. 2014: Event hours: 7:00pm - 12:00am A Frozen Holiday Wish - 6:15pm, 8pm Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade - 8:15pm, 10:30pm Holiday Wishes - Celebrate the Spirit of the Season - 9:30pm A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas - 7:45pm, 8:45pm, 9:55pm, 10:50pm, 11:45pm Celebrate the Season - 7:30pm, 10:05pm, 11:20pm 2024: Event hours: 7:00pm - 12:00am Frozen Holiday Surprise: 8:15 PM.

Personally, I think the best deal is the water park party. It's only a little more than a days admission and you get snacks and drinks free and less crowds.

They did the After Hours version a couple of years ago and I still think that was the best approach. (Let's day guests see HEA or current nighttime show). But for whatever reason they went back to the traditional parties. I'm sure it's mostly money but I can't imagine the After Hours parties being ideal for families either. A hybrid would have been best IMO: Tuesday and Thursday - MVMCP (Free Cookies, 2 parades and show) Friday and Sunday - Very Merriest (Snacks, 1 parade and show) Probably too confusing on the guest having two types too. Oh well.

Just some quick numbers on the 2024 MVMCP tickets: Average ticket price - $188.60 Number of days at each price point (based on what I saw in the MDE app earlier this morning): $159 - 3 $169 - 3 $179 - 6 $199 - 8 $209 - 3 $219 - 2 I may go back and see if I can do a similar breakdown with 2023 and earlier MVMCP tickets. If I can find the information, I'll do the breakdown and post here for comparison.

Easily my biggest complaint. And guess how busy it will be those few days you do get a full day.
