    Capping the AP....

    Would you get an AP if the $150 SoCal AP was capped at 15 visits a year, if the $200 DAP was capped at 20 visits a year, and the $300 PAP was capped at 30 visits a year.

    In short, is a visit to Disneyalnd worth $10 to you?

    Re: Capping the AP....

    yes, but the way, the APs are set up now, if you go enough, during the course of one year, the pass could be paid for. i prefer the way it is set up now.

    i don't mind paying as much as i pay for a Premium

    If the AP is capped, it's no longer an AP, it's merely a discounted admission program.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Well, I don't go to Disneyland do ride all of the rides and experiences all of the experiences every visit. As a matter of fact, my PAP allows me to go to the park and ride one or two attractions, spend a lot of money on food and merch and call it a day. I wouldn't pay $10 for some of the trips I take.

    If I was limited, I would probably spend less money but be more frantic about what I "experienced". Then, I'd experience burn out and DL would lose me as an AP.

    It is still an annual pass. Annual pass simplly means it is good for one year from first use.

    If you don't hit the cap (as most people won't), it expires in 1 year. Block out days would still apply, so it isn't a 15-20-30 day-hopper with 1-year expiration.

    It is an annual pass with a cap on the number of visits allowed.

    And, you didn't answer the question. Would you buy one?

    Re: Capping the AP....

    And what happens if you want to go more often? You have to buy blockout tickets, or regular gate passes? I go whenever I can manage, mainly because an AP makes it a practical option. Sure, I don't pay admission, but I pay good money for food and merchandise each time I go. If I had to pay extra ON TOP of the already significant expense of getting an AP in the first place, I wouldn't go, and the park would lose out on that revenue.

    You pay extra, you get perks. The more you're willing to pay, the better your perks get. That's the way Disneyland has always been. If you put restrictions on the perks, people stop paying for them. There will always be an unrestricted AP, and Disneyland will always be nice to the people holding them, because per capita, PAPs are the ones pumping the most money into the park.

    Honestly? Probably not.

    30 trips a year..... Twice a month, with an extra 6 visists tossed in for good measure. That wouldn't be enough to just drop in for a couple hours on some of the trips.

    Re: Capping the AP....

    Certanly not for a "Premium" AP, because the whole point of the Premium AP is its unlimited use (and discounts). I agree with Morrigoon, such a program would mean that there is no more AP, but instead a multi-day ticket in various denominations.

    I would still purchase a PAP, however, even if the price were raised significantly. Even after the last price jump, I still think it's a great value, and worth every penny for me. IMO, the worst thing they could do would be to cut back in benefits/restrict use on the PAP program. This to me is a much bigger deal breaker than raising the cost.

    You buy a regular ticket.

    What if any person could only get one pass in a year. AND, that pass was capped. Once you've used your days, you could upgrade to the next level to get more days.... Or buy full price admission.


    I know a lot of people that currently go 100-200 times a year would not like the cap.

    That isn't the question. The question is, if that was the ONLY option, would you buy an AP with a cap on the number of trips that made it cost at least $10 a day to go?

    You know, I really don't like to measure my leisure in terms of dollars and cents - especially Disneyland. It sort of ruins the magic.

    I may be enough, it may not - but the fact that I would have to justify the "worth" of a trip would reall be uninspiring.

    Maybe going to the beach would start becomming more valuable.

    So, add a $520 Super PAP capped at 52 visits a year.

    Would you buy it?

    Must it be "all or nothing", or would you still buy an AP if it had a cap?
