Well, it seems Miley Cyrus’ Sweet 16 party at Disneyland has finally sold out. As y’all know Z and I got our tickets back on September 3rd. A family friend (who I’ll also be escorting) purchased her ticket later that same week. I was pretty surprised tickets lasted as long as they did, and don’t even know for sure that they’re sold out. However, all mention of the event has been scrubbed from both Tickets.com and the Disney sites, so I’m assuming it is.
Additionally, it was brought to my attnetion that I really didn’t share much information about the event itself. instead, I simply linked to the official site. Well, with it gone, I thought maybe I should share the details so y’all can get good and jealous-
On Sunday, October 5, 2008,will throw their most brightly shining star an unparalleled Sweet 16 party. The event will be held at Disneyland park (which will be closed to the general public) from 6:00pm to 11:00pm. But Miley’s not going to be wandering the Mouse House all alone. No, she’s inviting 5,000 of her biggest fans to join her for the which will include…
Hannah Montana / Miley Cyrus themed Party Zones which will be packed withand entertainment tied in to both the show and Miley’s music.
Miley’s Favorite Attractions will be open including the Nightmare Before Christmas themed Haunted mansion, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Splash Mountain.
Fireworks created by theImagineers specially for Miley’s Sweet 16 will close the event, but not before the…
Music by Miley Cyrus (and some friends, no doubt)
And, the whole thing’s going to be videotaped for later broadcast on theChannel, so all the attendees get to become stars as well!
You don’t think any modernwould be caught dead throwing themselves a lavish without involving charity do you? Well, since the “Green” image Miley was trying to in her Miley and Mandy Show YouTube videos has been utterly destroyed with her purchase of a gas-guzzler, Miley has turned back to “the children”. Her Sweet 16 will be ‘recognizing’ the from Work Service who put so much effort into improving their communities. Presumably Work Service will also be getting a cut of the proceeds, though I can’t actually find this information on the official site – and there’s nothing there about the tickets being tax-deductible either. Speaking of…
Tickets to this exclusive gala bash were a mere $250 each! Now, you may think I’m being sarcastic with that “mere”, but I’m not – seriously. When on the Best of Both Worlds Tour, Miley was selling out 20,000 seat venues on pretty much a nightly basis. Although list price of the tickets was well below $250 they sold out in mere minutes and scalpers were receiving as much as $1,000 a seat (or more) pretty easily. Of course,started whining about “being ripped off”. So where, then, are all those now? This is a 5,000 ‘seat’ concert and you get to go to Disneyland as well, but tickets were still available more than a week after they went on sale. Both my tween and I believe this to be a true once in a lifetime opportunity and agree that $250 is an absolute bargain.
Still,hasn’t forgotten about those scalpers, so in order to make it more difficult for them the following terms are attached to every ticket-
Ticets may not be offered, sold or otherwise transferred for a commercial purpose and any tickkets sold or transferred are subject to seizure and immediate revocation without refund or compensation. Disneyland Resort reserves the right to refuse, revoke or limit admission in its sole discretion at any time without refund or compensation.
I know what you’re thinking – their multi-day passports say the same thing and people regularly sell those on eBay. Thissystem, however, goes even farther. No tickets will be mailed. All 5,000 of them must be picked up at Will Call the evening of the event and the original purchaser must not only be at the Will Call window, but they must have both a state-issued ID and the original credit card that they used to purchase the tickets. Even with all these protections there’s still a limit of four tickets per purchaser.
Check back the second week of October as I’ll surely have more to say about the event after the fact!
