    Anyone planning on attending this year? The price seems a little steep to me.

        We are planning on attending as well if we can get tickets. Yes, the price has gone up and the tickets are no longer included (they were freebies) but I still think the value is worth it.

        Last year it was an amazing event, I expect it will be the same this year.

          I agree 100%.

          Hopefully it won't sell out in minutes like last year's did because of those free park tickets. It just made it a no-brainer for the locals. Hopefully some of the bargain hunters will sit it out this year. Aside from all the exclusive experiences, it also includes MVMCP. I still think it's worth it!

          I like the fact that it includes a unique dining venue (IJESS), and that it's not just a repeat of last year's (LMA!). It was one of my favorite parts of the M&M last year.

          I'm looking forward to the BLT brunch too. I can't wait!

            I'm hoping to but their ticketing system is just horrid!

            I wasn't able to get the Times Sq store tickets, so I don't hold out much hope for Magic & Merriment. But I'll try.

              Wasn't this documentary already shown to the D23 members early this year at the 40th Anniversary celebration of the Disney Archives?

              Does any one know why the D23 staff never allows time to watch the holiday version of the Epcot fireworks show? At the October Sip & Stroll, they offer desserts in a reserved section to watch the Epcot fireworks. But, there is nothing at the December Magic & Merriment for the Epcot show!

                Yes it was.

                Showing it at WDW gives D23 members in the east a chance to see it. I see it as a nice opportunity to share the experience with those people who might not be able to travel out west for D23 offerings.

                  I understand that viewpoint. And along the same lines, shouldn't West Coasters who attend the Magic & Merriment weekend be given the opportunity to have a private viewing of the holiday version of the Illuminations fireworks show? It is offered at the spring Sip & Stroll and the fall Flowers & Fireworks weekends!

                    You never know, they may add it depending on the schedule.

                    However, I don't hold out much hope in getting a ticket. I will hope and try my darnest.

                      Did anyone get tickets for this? As soon as the ticket link came up, it was sold out! Absolutely ridiculous! Now I've got to decide if I'm going to cancel my December trip.

                        Was refreshing to get link every 5 seconds. First time the link showed up I clicked and got the "SOLD OUT" page instantly.

                        Hard to imagine this selling out in the first 5-10 seconds, but maybe there were just that many people queued up. Strange but "oh well".

                          I had the same problem - I was on and refreshing until the link came up and as soon as I got in it was sold out. That's got to be a record.

                            According to a post on Facebook, there were only 200 tickets sold. We didn't manage to get a ticket but we are confirmed on the waitlist... I can only hope the waitlist comes through!!

                            We had such an awesome time last year and I hope we can go again this year.

                            I really hope that D23 realizes just how many people want more events not only in Florida but around the country as well.

                              I missed out too. Refreshing didn't even pull up the link until 10:02a for me and of course... already sold out. Looks like I have a free weekend in my December WDW trip. :botox:
