This announcement has been great for Fan Fest as well as potential attendees. When prices were raised on the 12th after only the first guest announcement had been made, some fan sounded off on Facebook, stating that they weren’t going to make a purchase until more guests were confirmed. Now though, several people on social media are expressing excitement, and plans to purchase passes.
