Pretty much all of their "In Room Celebrations" are this price..I think they have been for quite a few years, the past 3 for sure.500 bucks. What a sad, venal joke this company is being turned into by these corporate termites. And yeah I know...no one has to buy it. Hopefully no one does.

Although all of these packages seem overpriced to me. Some banners and costumes are not worth $400.
I wonder similar things about every single thing sold by Disney Floral and Gifts. Every gift basket they sell seems overpriced for what you actually receive.But still, $500 is a lot, and bound to upset some cusomers who are less than satisfied with what they get. And, because of the high price, I wonder how many customers they'll ge
