    Re: New SoCal special, add DCA for just $10

    I think it is more what DCA does (or doesn't do), Disney has found that the 2fer helps increase DCA's attendance dramitically, as each ticket equals one day at each park, unlike ParkHoppers and AP's, where the first park you enter counts as your attendance.

    But if the numbers are better than normal, then you will see a different promotion, maybe something like the 2 day ParkHopper for the price of a One Day.

    Re: New SoCal special, add DCA for just $10

    What filled up DCA so dramatically this past weekend were the 2fer passes being redeemed by locals who otherwise would not attend and don't otherwise own annual passes. It's a niche market that's just big enough to fill the park on one or two days near the end of the promotion. That the tickets were transferrable means this number could be even smaller.

    Offering $5-$10 off the one-day parkhopper isn't going to be enough of an incentive to most locals, and it isn't going to fill up DCA anymore than it regularly is. If the goal is to get more people to line up at DCA, then they not only need to train the staff there to handle the crowding better anyway.

    Ultimately, Disneyland has much more prestige and much higher attendance than any of the other theme parks in the area and doesn't need to resort to deeply discounted tickets. This summer will be wall to wall guests as it always is.

    Universal, Knotts and Six Flags offer things like $25 adult admission tickets because they have to.

    But has DL ever offered 2fers outside of the SoCal ZIP codes? We here in Southern Nevada are treated to the general public/tourist offers, despite the fact that our only ground connection to the world outside of the desert is a few hours drive on a major arterial freeway from us to you.

    Ah, this is what people have been calling for since the park first opened... It's a good idea, though, considering many visitors are locals, so it's a promotion to bring them in and treat them to a discount...

    Really I was there at the same time, Nov 7,8,9, we might have passed by each other. But I don't remember that special, did you buy your tickets at the gate or did you stay at a Disnye hotel. We were at the Sequoia Lodge, so maybe our park hopper-passes were just included with the stay.

    To Disney, Las Vegas is "out-of-town", so you have been offered things like 2 days free with a purchase of a 3 day or More ParkHopper in the past, and then the offers that expired today, Adults at the Kids Price, and Kids Free with an Adult 3 day or more ParkHopper, and the special that is good for the rest of the year, Advance Purchase discounts on 3 day or more ParkHoppers.

    As you can see, Disney wants you to make a multi-day hotel stay.

    But then on the other hand, based on what Las Vegas wants from me, that is how I get marketed, free or discounted rooms, offers are better on slow weekdays or non-peak months. Not much of a difference.

    My offers from the local Indian casinos are a lot different, basically offers to entice me to show up for a few hours.
