Diseny raises prices… again

Well folks, next time you visit Disneyland here in OC, be prepared to fork over 53 bucks. Yep, Disney has again raised their prices. For the second time in a year.

On the plus side, they are offering SoCal residents a 2-for-1 deal, where you get to use the same ticket to return again, I think through April 28th. After that date, ticket prices will return to normal as Disneyland celebrates 50 years.

I suppose this price hike won’t affect me too much, as I’ve been three times in the last year (yeah, all on Saturdays in the height of season. My out-of-town friends best appreciate!) but for families? That’s another $20 per visit they have to pay just to get in. While D-land does provide a whole day of fun, I’m not sure if $212 a day for four people, plus a kazillion dollars for food, drinks, toys for the kids, etc. is quite worth it. Then again, it IS Disneyland…

    By “ticket prices will return to normal” you mean I will be able to get in for $20 again. That was a great deal, when Southern Californian residence got in for $20. Sure, it went up to $22, but that’s still less than half the price to get in today. I suppose their annual pass sales went down and that’s why they did away with that deal. However, all it has made me do is not go, I’ve only been once in the last ten years when it wasn’t with school, and I only live 5 miles away.

    You would think that if they let me get in for cheap I would go more often, buy more food, and they would get more money out of me. Or maybe if they just fixed Tomorrow Land…

    When I worked for the Mouse, the rumor was that prices would continue to increase as long as people kept paying them. This is certainly how they seem to operate. It’s their business, and people still seem to be going to the park, so as it stands they’ll probably keep raising them.
