    Well, if the goal was to thin the herd of AP's with this, doubtless that will be successful.

    Re: Disneyland Ticket Price Increases

    I have a feeling Disney is now hiring executives from Big Oil. Pass the cost on to consumers and THEN some, because we need to raise revenue in order to get our bonuses!

    But guess what? Everyone who says, "I'll do it this year but NOT NEXT YEAR" is not only fooling themselves ... you're playing right into Disney's plan. Funny thing is, I just bought a premiere pass less than two months ago, valid for the next 10.5 months, and paid more than $100 less but I get the same benefit as everyone else.

    If you ACTUALLY stopped buying, if you ACTUALLY stopped agreeing to pay their prices, they would have to stop. But you won't. And they know that.

    Re: Disneyland Ticket Price Increases

    What they should do to thin out AP's is to decrease the price of One-Day Tickets and keep the AP prices where they are. By making a one or two day ticket more affordable, the various So-Cal residents will feel less inclined to make such a big investment, even with the payment plan.

    Re: Disneyland Ticket Price Increases

    Lest anyone think I'm badmouthing a specific person, let me say, "But WE won't. And they know that." Though I can pretty definitively say -- no definitively, with no qualifier -- that the premiere pass I recently bought will be the last annual pass I buy from Disney. I'd rather go three times a year and pay full price than deal with an increase like this. I wonder ... does this rather remarkable price increase change the attitude of those who defend Disney with "it's a business"?

    Ever since I read that argument on SaveDisney years ago, it made sense to me, MasterGracey1969:

    Lower the cost of a one-day, park hopper ticket to $75 and a one-day, one-park ticket to $55. Eliminate the annual passes altogether. Require, essentially, that everyone who enters the park buy a ticket. You'll reduce the number of overall visits, but increase their economic quality -- the place won't be filled with people who window shop, bring KFC into the park, and camp out only to see Fantasmic or World of Color. The per-capita revenue would actually (theoretically) increase, while the wear on attractions and need or maintenance decreases, as does the need to hawk ODV products and food because people aren't spending in the "big" stores and restaurants. You'd therefore decrease staffing costs. If you've ever been to Disneyland on one of those days where the ticket windows have virtually no line but the queue to enter the park is massive, you know there's something "off" about that as a business model.

    Re: Disneyland Ticket Price Increases

    Should feel like groundhog day for the next 5-6 days... the same old vilification of Disney after price increases.

    Difference is this time, Disney is opening entire new lands and wrapping up what is effectively 50% of a new theme park. Yet that is lost on people who think they are entitled to cheap, all you can eat access to the parks.

    I would agree if they truly reflected that by lowering the price of single day single park tickets. If they expect both parks to stand alone together as it were, then the price should reflect that. I get that all the other prices "need" to increase by the logic of how much they added... except I know their daily cost structure doesn't nearly justify the gouging. Yeah, they just spent a billion dollars refreshing DCA. That's a week from the resort. Some bean counter screwed up here, the public reaction is going to be severe.

    Here's some ticketing stats:

    2007 2008 2009 2009 2010 2011 2012
    1 day 1 park $66 $69 $72 $76 $80 $87
    1 day Park Hop $97 $101 $105 $125
    So Cal Select $134 $144 $169 $184 $199 $269
    So Cal $174 $194 $219 $239 $269 $329
    Deluxe $269 $289 $299 $329 $379 $469
    Premium $389 $429 $439 $459 $499 $699
    Premier $749 ?

    Obviously, some gaps as I was only able to find this much information quickly. Why 2007 data if only to have the 1 day 1 park? Because the US annual income per person is currently flat with 2007. Inflation in the US? Also flat with 2007.

    THEIR CUSTOMERS ONLY HAVE EXACTLY THE SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY AS 2007.

    What they are doing is cruel and disgusting.

    Re: Disneyland Ticket Price Increases

    HOT damn Disneyland went nuts. Too soon too fast. I get it. Carsland, all the expansions and projects and updates. I wonder when I go later this summer if everything from drinks to merchandise are now going to go up by dollars and cents.

    It looks like I'll be buying my annual passport tomorrow by doing the monthly payment option. At least that way I'll be all set for my trip in July. Darn you, Disney! LOL

    And you should go back to 2002 pricing ($45) - for all of the complaints on these boards about the Pressler/Harriss era, they made a concerted effort to keep single day gate prices reasonable. A 93% increase in ticket prices over ten years when that same $45 would be $57.55 in today's dollars.

    Remind me again how philanthropic this current regime is....

    Question:

    When you buy park hopper tickets online, they are good until the end of the calendar year, right?

    Re: Disneyland Ticket Price Increases

    I am a passholder but I am not even upset at the increase. It's still an incredible value.

    What's horrible is the individual ticket prices. It's now 488 dollars for a family of 4 to get one day park hopper. Way to keep all those lower middle class and below people from experiencing disneyland.

    It's only an incredible value when you can go often. But many AP holders live out of state and can only get there a couple times a year. It makes it less than an incredible value.
