  • Non Members can win Tickets to DL party 3/10

    There are several online contests for non members to win tickets to the party on the 10th. As a member who paid $75 to join, and then paid to attend a "member exclusive party" .... I have to say that I am disappointed to see this. It was not easy for me to shell out the funds for either the renewal or the event itself. You could surmise that this means very few have purchased tickets; the announcement of "guests" perhaps was meant to fuel interest, perhaps it did not accomplish as much. Despite my own feelings, and of course I can only guess why this was done, the bottom line is that members who could not afford to buy tickets are just as eligible to enter these contests as anyone else. I suggest you use Google news to search for d23 party and you can find other contests - this was on the OC register website. Good luck!

    In total, they are only giving away 4 pairs of tickets, 8 total. I see it as giving away a few tickets to get more press on the event which has not sold out yet. I am all for them to try and get the word out about the event and hopefully sell it out. I would prefer Disney to give away 8 tickets to help sell out the event than to have it end up with many unsold tickets and not hold future events at Disneyland because the ticket costs are not cover expenses.

    I think its best for the long term outlook of D23 events at Disneyland. Isn't there 4 events at Disney World this year and only 1 at Disneyland?

          Yup, I'm all for these ticket give aways. D23 is still a new club and many people, both disney geeks and not, don't know of it and this is a good way for them to "advertise" the club for those non-members.

            Aren't those the same things? Maybe thread merger needs to be called?

              I posted the contest earlier and I'll say I'm also all for promotions and giveaways. If it gets more people there, why not? On any given day, there are probably HUNDREDS of free tickets being given to Disneyland. Plays, concerts, movies, sporting events -- they all have people going for free who win contests. I'm not upset because someone got in free. To be honest, I guess I'm not even thinking about that at all. This is the way things work. The more the merrier, I say! And yes, I bought two tickets to the event, so I paid $130, and I don't for a SECOND think that a non-member shouldn't get to go. Why not spread the joy? And then, they might become a member of D23, too!

                Oh, and since you have already paid for your tickets, why not just enter the contest? If you win, you can bring some friends!

                  I think essentially, that's what they're aiming to do. I'm sure at this point, they are probably either breaking even or making a profit with the event, so tossing out some free tickets into the wild will get 8 additional people to go, who will hopefully become a member, and then hopefully get additional friends to go to events and then join the club...

                  Definitely a win move for Disney.

                      I was wondering the same thing, Ryanvalle. Since they just started it, I imagine they have to review the photos for content (make sure there are no Flash Mountain photos, etc.) and then get them up. I'd hope by tomorrow???!!

                              Thanks guys! I just realized that 2 winners will win by votes. Another two will win by editor selection, so hopefully I can score tickets somewhere, otherwise I know that by the time ticket sales are over, I would've figured out a way where I can do school and attend the event without being tired or anything haha
