where are the rest of the boo bash trip reports?

If Boo Bash was awful or overcrowded, you bet we'd be seeing a lot of reports. No news is good news.

Went last friday night 10/15. It was much more crowded than we expected but not over-crowded. Longer than expected lines for included snacks/beverages for the 1st hour then you could walk right up. Our group of 9 was able to ride Space mountain (twice), astro orbiter, Buzz's Star command, Prates of the Carib, Big Thunder Mountain, Splash mountain & the Haunted Mansion. All while stopping at the Trick or Treat spots that didnt have long lines (some did). The 2 cavalcades were few & far between and if there was anything at the castle we missed it. Other than the normal fall decorations there was nothing extra done.
Pros: Short waits and some "free snacks"
Cons: A lot Extra $$$, should run later, needs more theming (castle & main street projections would be good) & more cavalcades.

The longest wait was the bus ride back to our resort (just over an hour) because they are running a lot of coach buses that have no standing and cant move as many people.

I think I would like it if WDW did something like this every night at a different park - perhaps discounted for resort guests. We are night owls and would gladly pay for lower crowd level evenings. Stay at the resorts for the day then head to the parks. Imagine a relaxing WDW vacation...

If WDW did this for each park taking turns... I'd probably wouldn't buy any day tickets for most of my trip... maybe one day-ticket with a hopper to catch some shows that don't show at night.

Sleep in. Catch all the long-line rides with almost no wait in the cool of the night. Yeah... I'm in.

Exactly what we said! No genie reservations, no lightning lanes. Come in late, maybe grab a bite or catch a show, watch fireworks and then just be able to walk around and ride the rides and the parks without the huge crowds. Could make even more $ if they went "adult" after fireworks and started selling cocktails in the parks.

Unfortunately I got hit for the park pass w/ hopper and then additional for boo bash this time.

There's no defending Boo Bash 2021 after tonight. Very Merriest is clearly a real party, despite the After Hours branding.

If they do Boo Bash again it needs to be much better. There should be no holiday double-standard.

Merriest certainly cost more.

They're going to charge more no matter what they do. They could drop the Halloween cavalcades and still end up charging an extra $25/person if they thought they could get away with it.

As outrageous as the price is for Very Merriest, I think paying $150 or so for what was basically Evening EMH was a bigger rip off.
