About that Disney After Hours event

I recently blocked about a weird NYT article involving income inequality and tourism. The author picked Disney After Hours, a hard ticket 3 hour post close event with limits slots, as an example of a "behind the velvet rope" experience only available to Moneyed Folk.

I just got an invitation in email as an annual passholder: I can buy up to 4 of those tickets for half the going rate (normally $150 -- for me, a mere $75!).

From this I conclude NOT that WDW really particularly values me, but that those nights at MK were gonna be sparsely attended anyway, this event was an effort to gin up some visitors and it isn't working as well as was anticipated.
