The Jollywood skating show development is bringing me back to when we first met about Villains Unleashed. Colleagues never want to admit their idea doesn’t translate to a real life park setting.

Ours are in a collage of all our MNSSHP and MVMCP pictures on the family room wall. Most of the ones that I can remember were taken in Adventureland.

We still display our complimentary photo from the 2004 MVMCP every Christmas season. Pretty sure they had the photo ops set up in what is now the Laugh Floor.

But they weren’t playing Trans Siberian Orchestra on Space Mtn!

The first MVMCP I went to, back in 2002 cost me $27.95 each (CM tickets bought at Company D). The normal priced guest ticket was $33.95 in advance or $38.95 at the gate. That included the now non existent complimentary photo.

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?
