    It's been discussed in other threads, but the question remains: do they really? The APs who pack the park twenty, thirty, forty or more times a year certainly spend some amount of money on food and merchandise. The question for Disney is, how much?

    If the unscientific data from any of the recent threads on this forum is any indication, it may not be very much.

    If Disneyland were a radio or TV station, it would be packed to capacity many hours of its broadcast day with an enormous number of commercials. Extremely cheap commercials. The primary characteristic of its on-air format would be clutter. When that happens to broadcasters, either they thin out the clutter or they risk losing their top-spending accounts -- those who don't want to compete for "ear space" in a shoulder-to-shoulder mosh pit of cheap 10-and 15-second commercials.

    I'd be a bit surprised if the sharp pencil boys haven't made the case to management that the overall admissions media price is 'wayyy on the low end, dragged there by increasingly high numbers of low-cost-per-visit APs.

    I'm all for this if it mean lesser crowds. I get jealous every time i see a photo of main street from the 50's and 60's in seeing how empty it was compared to today's zoo.

    Yes, whip out that credit card and purchase your AP's online today, before the prices increase!

    The clock won't start ticking until you actually enter the Park. From that day, you will have the one year of use.

    Enjoy!

    Have we all forgotten that Disney gives us $70 back on our birthday?

    Well, up until the past year or so, they had no idea how much AP'ers spent inside the Parks. No way to tell...

    Now that they actually swipe your AP when you use it for a discount, they at least have some way of tracking the use of the AP's at the cash registers.

    It still would not be 100% accurate, but they will have some idea of a sampling of spending patterns.




    And I would be happy to compare receipts on my Resort purchases each year.

    Sure, I'm not the average mouse, but I'm also not the only one that steps up to the plate when it comes time to support the Resort...

    You are forgetting about the grade A theme park the cost allows me to visit.

    My point was that in reality, 70 bucks is knocked off those prices if you have yet to celebrate your birthday. (72 to be exact).

    So, in reality, I paid $102 dollars for 200+ days at Disneyland once August 23rd comes around.

    I don't think there's anything to be complaining about.

    I'm wondering if what DLR needs to be concerned about is the increasing number of bodies who BYO snacks, drinks and blankets, and use DL like a city park a hundred times a year -- or more.

    When you have on the order of ten-to-the-sixth customers within easy driving distance, for whom a day at Disneyland costs less than a McDonald's burger, and your marketing mavens keep dreaming up more discounts to dangle in front of 'em, it's a safe bet you're going to have plumbing problems.

    Well, that assumes (and you know what that means) that a person still has their b-day coming up during the promo AND that they will be at the Park on their b-day AND they will use the funds towards another AP.

    That's a lot of assumptions!


    But I know what you mean...

    Sorry if this was asked/answered, but is the park hopper prices staying the same or did they go up also? It doesn't say on the news article.
