Why doesn't Disney release these special events at BOTH parks! So tired of Disneyland always getting these and merchandise first!!. Then Disney World doesn't get the same until months later! :-( Disney World has a much larger guest attendance. Makes more sense to releast this at Both pars at the same time!

Thank you for reading. This event will be at both Disney World and Dinsneyland. The only thing that is unclear at the moment is whether the prizes will be the same (which, they might. Sometimes they are).
