Debating about going to the first parties or not for both parks... never have done them and would like to see it at least once.

Oh, I don’t know much about timeshares. I think back to growing up and I don’t even know if there were anything but the hotel deluxes at the time. Not to say that that’s relevant here, but just…lots of change in my lifetime!

If you want the simple answer, just look at the difference in guest traffic in 2002 compared to 2024.

How do you tell people to support the parks for 50 years at higher level of financial commitments than the transient “deluxe” customers and then tell them they don’t get the perks? Good luck with that one. There’s a misconception - mostly from bad management - that there is a “whale” class. There is…but they just can’t identify it. Dvc are the “whales” Really bad management

Why couldn’t they (or wouldn’t, I should say) give perks to the hotel side of deluxes and not to the timeshare sides? Is there something in DVC contracts? I miss the late ‘80s through late ‘90s of my pre-adult visits!

I’m so curious about this. We’ve been on the fence about Jollywood and if they actually feature A list figure skaters we’ll buy tickets…but also I’m skeptical it’s safe to do more than very basic jumps on outdoor plastic ice and spins don’t work well either, unless dramatic upgrades have been made to plastic ice since I last tried it, I don’t think they can do anything more ambitious than Disney on Ice grade choreography.

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.
