Editor’s Note:
  • October 6, 2015: Up, Up and Away . . . Disney Parks Annual Pass Increases – After a crazy summer that saw attendance increase by 15% from a year ago, Disneyland raised AP prices substantially on Sunday. On Saturday the Resort set a new one-day attendance record for October, with over 96,000 people combined packing both parks. At 9pm on Saturday night Disneyland alone had over 54,000 people inside the park, a huge in-park number that 10 years ago would have been unheard of even on New Year's Eve. - We examine the price increases at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World in an article from Hastin Zylstra HERE and Andy Castro takes a look at Disneyland price increases as the entire Rivers of America complex and Railroad prepare to shut down HERE.   ×0
