I heard this story today from a co-worker, does anyone have any comments about this?
The park gets full to capacity many days during the Christmas holiday, right? My co-workers visited last week and needed to buy passports to get in. It was close to capacity at the time. At the ticket window they were informed that all the one-day tickets were "sold out" and that, in order to get in the park, they would have to buy not just a park hopper, but a two-day park hopper. So they had to pay over a hundred bucks apiece to get in. And, the second day on the pass expires in a mere TWO WEEKS.
They are still talking about how pissed they are at Disneyland; now they have to try and sell the remaining day to someone else, and of course all day long they fretted about having spent the extra money, but they had carpooled with other people so didn't have the option of turning around and going home.
California Adventure wasn't full to capacity, of course, so you could buy a ticket either for that, or a park hopper for both; I can see that; but they didn't say that, they said the one-day park hoppers were now "sold out" and try to squeeze people for additional days...doesn't that seem LOW?
I asked her some other questions, because I thought maybe she had misunderstood the available options, but she is pretty savvy and it sounds like that's really what the park's policy is.
If anyone can put this into perspective...?
