And lastly… Just it out on the air there's no way in the world they are going to have a meet and greet centric hard ticket event. Operationally, it was a disaster. Just doing basic simple math, there is no way you can have a five hour event with 30,000 people when the special characters you have for that event can meet at maximum 600 people during the event.
I've asked people behind the scenes if this will ever happen again. They said "oh hell no."
I definitely do not think we'll see a Villain themed party in the near future. However, if Disney wanted to do one that "worked" in a reasonable manner, it seems to me that they'd have to do a hard ticket event with multiple days (a la MNSSHP). If they had multiple nights in a season all with the same content, it might spread out the crowds enough to allow the M&G capacity to better fit the demand. They'd also have to limit ticket sales for each night more than they did for the previous hard ticket.
Don't see it happening but at at least would be a better planned idea than the mess they did before.
