  • Tuesday, August 10, 17, 20, 24, 27, 31
  • Friday, September 3, 2021

I find this encouraging that maybe I'll see some longer park hours for my mid/late August trip. I plan to go to the Boo Bash just to get some late-ish park hours, if just for one night.

Thanks for starting this! So excited for this event!

We are staying on property for our October trip but never received the email so many have mentioned here with the info for the advance ticket sale. Does anyone know what number we need to call? It seems as if those emails were hit or miss for most.

We’re hoping to attend on 10/31 so I hate that we have to call. I’m expecting extremely long wait times for tickets and am worried that the event on Halloween will sell out quickly.

Thank you!

ETA: Oh, duh. It’s the same phone number as listed above. For some reason, I kept thinking that was only for June 15th and after. I apparently can’t read :scared: Thank you for humoring my dumb question!

I’m a bit worried I won’t be able to early book. I got the e-mail for my stay at ASMo, but it’s a split stay, and the bash I want to go to is when I’ll be at SOG. Anyone have thoughts on it or been in a similar situation with something else?
