    Re: Disneyland Hikes Ticket Prices on Sunday

    Probably because the way things are now, very few people actually buy a regular one-day ticket. A lot of people have multi-day tickets or vacation packages, which are cheaper. Then there has been the Summer Fun pass this year for $99, which breaks down to $33 a day for each park. Disney will still have deals like that going on because of the economy and to make sure attendance does not take a dive. But they will still bring in more money with the higher AP prices and those who do buy just one day regular tickets. I would think as long as their attendance figures do not take a huge drop, they will continue the annual raising of prices. Even so, I remember when they only raised them $1 a time. How many more years until it is $100 for a one-day, one-park ticket?

    The $20 renewal discount probably will not change. I would bet they factored that into the $40 increase for Premium passes.

    If an extra $3 is going to make a difference for someone visiting Disneyland, they really should not be going to Disneyland.

    I am wondering if there will be increased black-outs for Deluxe and SO Cal AP. I would not be surprised if Disneyland stops selling SO Cal passes in 2010.

    Well, that used to be the case but apparently isn't true this summer. It looks like "off season" now is whenever APs are blocked out.
    (no, I'm not complaining about APers)
    I think maybe Disney didn't factor in the free birthday promo. when they decided that because attendance is up at DL, that meant they could raise admission prices. Attendance is up due to a number of factors like people staying close to home and visiting DL instead of taking a vacation elsewhere. But the birthday promo had to affect attendance numbers in a big way. I have seen a huge number of people with birthday buttons, and they all bring friends and family with them. So the birthday promo ends, the economy keeps people from buying or renewing at the higher rate and attendance drops.
    Bone-headed DL Executives. If only we could stack them like logs and have a bonfire.

    Well, with the success of the finance plan for AP's, raising the AP prices was a sure bet. Just one more reason that they were a bad idea from the start (unless you're Disney). But our stocks are still in the toilet!

    Disney knows that folks that finance their stuff (TV's, cars, sofa's, and even their lunch at McD's-via credit card) usually don't worry about the total amount paid, just the monthly payment. It's a proven FACT!

    And hey, it has become the American way!!!


    Is there any wonder that the bankruptcy courts and foreclosures are at an all-time high??? (hint: rhetorical question...)

    What about the park hopper? Does it vanish into thin air or does that get a price change too?

    Unfortunately, the finance plan did nothing for us out-of-town AP holders. So now we get hit with a big price increase *and* can't pay by installments.

    7% is not a "big price increase" (AP - PAP is 10% increase).

    I still don't get why Disney hasn't at least done the intelligent thing by not allowing PAP or DAP to be financed. They also should increase the California AP's significantly - judging from the "How much do you spend per trip" thread, the locals are paying for basically only 2~ one day tickets AND they contribute to the general maintenance costs AND they increase foot traffic/crowds AND take up spots in the parking structure BUT they don't produce significant revenue for the park other than a minor outlay for the pass.

    Who's running the finance team? The Country Bears?
    Coming on a whirlwind trip 12/4 and 12/5 just to see the holiday decorations. Hope the park isn't too full of spoiled mall-goers to enjoy!

    They also buy plenty of overpriced food and merchandise.

    Believe me, Disneyland benefits from the locals.

    Simple finance 101...

    Disney knows that they will sell X amount of AP's each year and they hope to sell even more (which they are!).

    Which do you think they would want to sell? A cheap So-Cal AP or the pricier PAP?

    By offering the finance plan, Disney knows that folks will shout, "CHARGE IT!!!" when it comes time to get their AP's. And those AP's will more than likely be DAP's or PAP's, since they are "easily affordable" on the finance plan.

    And guests have fallen for it hook, line and sinker. Consumers are way too predictable...

    For Disney, it's all about the revenue/cash flow. With the finance plan, the suits at Disney are laughing all the way to the bank.

    For now...

    Heh, you really think so?
    Isn't a good portion of this board's existence about how to avoid crowds, maximize ride times, and spending the least amount of money possible?

    Yes, most of the merchandise that you can see selling cheaper at WalMart, Target, etc (i.e. Disney DVDs, CDs,) Whatever happened to DLR exclusive items like in the old days?
