    I say if we can't discriminate, then the prices should do that for us

    Re: DCA admission

    The price of a one day admission ticket has long been a subject of discussion. The reality is that Disney is not looking for people to purchase admission for one day and one park. Disney would prefer to sell guests the One Day Park Hopper.

    That wasn't the case back in 2001 when DCA opened, back then there were no ParkHoppers sold to the General Public (even Multi-Days). Disney wanted to sell you a Single Day, Single Park ticket since that is where they make the most profit on attendance.

    But hardly anyone want to do it back in 2001, and less want to do it today.

    I really think that Disney would love to sell DCA tickets for less, but there is an "image" issue. But they do it in other ways, "2 days free" when you buy a ParkHopper in advance, the "Pay for Disneyland, get DCA for free" offers, etc.

    But yes, I think having $29 Single Day tickets at DCA at the Main Gate would be a GOOD thing. (Price based on Knott's and SFMM ticket offers).

    I think:

    1. I don't know what your definition of "exquisite restaurants" is but there isn't one in Disneyland or DCA.

    2. I don't know what your definition of "crappy entertainment" is but I would rather sit through Alladdin, DEP, and Block Party Bash than watch the tired old parade at Disneyland or any of the past few stage shows at the Fantasyland Theatre.

    3. I don't know what your definition of "exciting park" park is but I think DCA has more "energy" than Disneyland.

    4. I don't know what your definition of "little rides" rides is, but I have three words: Soarin', Tower, Screamin'. I think DCA has a number of cool, fun, attractions.

    So I think DCA is worth the same admission, but the bigger question is why someone would pay $63 dollars to get into only one park when for $83 dollars you can get a park hopper and enjoy Disneyland in the morning, escape to DCA when Disneyland gets unbearably crowded, and head back to Disneyland in the evening and enjoy Disneyland After Dark.

    Agreed! And what better way than to sell tickets to both parks for $63.00, hey the way I look at it is I am only paying $20.00 do get into DCA. I bet some people buy hoppers, thinking they will make it over to DCA and never do. So Disney just made an easy $20.

    From what I remember, Tony Baxter had an idea of having DCA be FREE and be part of Downtown Disney, BUT, you would have to pay for the individual rides very much like Disneyland in the early years.

    not so much....

    There are far worse theme parks out there that charge the same.

    it's gotten to the point now where I think that if you serve hamburger to people who eat steak all the time, The hamburger is gonna look like crap.

    Re: DCA admission

    Since I am not a local, when I go to DLR it is for several days and I want to see both parks. I wouldn't, even if I were local, bother with a one park/one day ticket (even if it were reduced in price) unless I was going for a particular thing.

    Re: DCA admission

    If I was paying to get into DCA I'd do the same thing I do every year for Knott's. I'd wait for Toy's for Tots day, buy a monopoly game and get in for free.

    Everyone wins. I get in for a $12 game. Knotts makes on the money I spend for chow and drinks. And the entrance fee goes to a worthy cause.

    SOunds like a winner to me.
