Fandaze Prices!!
« Reply #30 on: January 01, 2018, 07:19:20 PM »
Just seen the prices released for the fandaze event in June. I have to say Im disappointed. The base package is over 400 per person for one night at Santa Fe. And then when promoting it they are trying to make out that only real fans go to these events. Its just upsetting because so many fans including myself can afford no where near these prices. And to make out that were not real fans because of it. In my opinion they really need to re think these events. 😡😡

Sounds DLP could be going down the WDW with all the upcharges for special events

When they say you get a private meet with Mickey and Minnie what does that mean? Doesnt all families meet Mickey on their own? And after 2 minutes what is left to say to a fur character??

I will photoshop a pic of me with Roger Rabbit.

They have lost their mind with those prices.

ED92 has tweeted that tickets for the event alone will be between 80-100 Euro, which is a bit better and more like what I expected. The packages are shocking, though...

December 2018 - Santa Fe

But just to add the caveat that there will be a 'limited number' of standalone tickets available and things like the tour etc will only be available via packages.

I think it's very clear that DLP want people to buy packages and want them to believe there may not be individual tickets available later if they choose to wait. Which makes sense from a business position as this event is obviously designed to make a profit and they don't really do that from AP holders. But it's poor PR to ignore their AP holders in this way.

The standalone tickets only get you entrance though.
100 just to enter but not to participate in anything, is still way too much

They have a special tour with a yet unnamed imagineer (although I imagine tickets to this won't be available separately as they are for the highest price package) and they have a couple of conferences, which the package ticket's don't cover and need to be bought separately.

Personally, I think 80-100 is fine and about what I was expecting to pay.

Yeah the general party will be open for everyone - this will include a special Ducktales parade, the now traditional dance party and character M&Gs.

A show, a parade, character meets and an Imagineer panel.
And the standalone ticket won't cover any of those.
For each thing, you need to pay a lot extra.
Just like with the different packages

Tom Fitzgerald is the Imagineer, and it's not a tour. It's a panel inside the Animagique Theatre.
This was already announced 2 days ago.

However the only way to see the Imagineer panel, is to purchase the most expensive package of 1100 from which only 16 are "available".
They aren't actually available, they have already been booked away for and by the person financing this event.

There's some incorrect information being given here.

The basic ticket/classic package gets you into the party. In there will be all the previously mentioned stuff that you can see same way if you visited say the NYE party or Halloween Soiree. These are the Ducktales parade, lots of character M&Gs, dance party etc... WHICH characters you get to see isn't guaranteed and obviously depends upon how busy things are. You get a photo pass with a package which obviously might be useful.

There are two conferences in the Animagique Theatre and  you can buy tickets for these separately (22) - you don't HAVE to buy a package to see them. They're both about Imagineering apparently, one with Tom and one called 'Duffy and Friends' but no announcement on who will be leading it.The only thing you must have to attend the conferences is a valid ticket for both that talk and the party itself.

There are packages where you can get access to extras such as private M&G with characters, Sunday brunch, workshops with chefs etc. These things are only very limited and are only available in packages. One of the items in a limited package is a 2 hour tour with an Imagineer.

Hope that cleared it up for some!
