Am I the only one who has decided not to renew their year pass? Bums me out but it's gotten to expensive. =(

I'm not getting one either. - deadmou53  38.6 #5051 1:10AM
Same. Unless I get a job - SoloSiyoNqoba  600.4 #321 1:11AM

Still debating - MandalorianGirl  49.2 #4612 1:15AM
I wish they would something more for long time passholders - StitchEars  330.7 #699 1:21AM
I reason I probably won't is due to being laid off and not being able to find a job in 6 months. I love disney! But money is tight. - halloweenonchristmas  6.8 #13486 1:22AM
Not having a pass doesn't lessen your love for Disney. - deadmou53  38.6 #5051 1:23AM
Yeaaaa more room in line for me!!! Whooohooo....Save youre $3.33 a month at starbucks - Dave  13240.1 #2 1:23AM
I don't get it. I've seen people say its a luxury and you don't have to buy one but when people decide not to, you're all sarcastic? - deadmou53  38.6 #5051 1:25AM

@Dave which pass is $3.33 a month?! I can afford that! I think I'm paying like $24 ea per month right now... - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2529 7:04AM
@Rickey I think he meant the difference of $50 cause I had to double read his comment'! - Tataandbeyond  83.9 #3749 7:43AM
Oh I see what you mean! I was like $3 a month! I can def afford that! Lol but when u times it by 3 it's about $10 extra on top of what were already paying which we won't have for that. Unless hubby gets a raise! It makes me so sad cos I've had an AP for 7 years :( - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2529 7:50AM
Aww sorry for no AP. Hope your situation changes soon, so u can get it again :) - MsDisneyLove  168.2 #2366 7:55AM
We are at 5 passes for our family and have to do it the riff raff way....monthly payments, or we wouldn't be able to go. Dave is right...it may be less crowded ;o) - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1181.0 #137 7:57AM
Our passes expire in August and we won't be renewing  - NikkiMickey  1685.7 #92 7:58AM
We are at 5 APs as well. Expensive, but not over priced. I will renew, but it takes a bite. - Tammilani  57.8 #4323 8:02AM
Everything is more expensive. Just go get groceries or fill up your car. It's just the times, and it sucks. Unfortunately, in this situation, some people are just going to miss out - Kari_Bo_Berry  361.5 #599 8:06AM
We are not renewing either. This was our first year with aps, because of the give a day, get a day promotion last year and a large Disney gift card. We drove down three times, totally worth it, but we can't justify it this year. So bummed, but I come here and see my happy place! - Abbeys_mom  4.6 #19410 8:09AM
Does anybody know the new price for the premium pass? - Kings75  28.6 #5781 8:19AM
I thought someone said it's gonna be 500 for premium. Starting June 12  - Briana  241.0 #1409 8:21AM
$499 - michelledork  696.2 #261 8:21AM
June 12th I believe it is $499 - Chumash28  1088.6 #157 8:22AM
I'm on the fence...it's expensive but I know I'll go. - staceeyl  237.2 #1448 8:24AM
We barely renewed ours right before the prices went up, dvd I'm thankful for that, because we were going to wait till summer to renew then decided to make a special trip down for star tours. It does suck that everything is getting more expensive and that disney doesn't give better prices for long term passholders. That's because 80% of guests there (on average) are ap. They don't make that much on ticket sales due to that, so they keep raising it. I remember when the premium passes were only 200, oh the day - Seacow  486.1 #409 8:25AM
I wonder if APs buy as much in the way of food/souvenirs as others do? - ally  509.0 #16 8:28AM
@seacow... I remember when they where $99 for premium in 2001!! My kids and I had them for 4 yrs then I couldn't afford them anymore. Each yr they kept going up and then they reached $300 we were done! Now its just me and this payment plan stuff works out great for me! But its out of control! - shel68  139.7 #2822 8:32AM
@ally when I worked in the stores, they didn't buy souvenirs, but they did buy a lot of pins and vinyls - Seacow  486.1 #409 8:33AM
To all who read Dave's comment as serious, take a deep breathe, he is sarcastic by nature. He is in reality a super nice person. It's very much a Bummer that people can't renew passes!! Think of the sarcasm as a comic relief to a sad moment?? Ok...I hope this helped!!! I don't want anyone feeling un-loved here!!! - JenAnneWho  300.7 #863 8:35AM
Just because someone doesn't want to renew their AP does not mean they won't renew it down the road when times are better. I took breaks from my AP a few years ago because money was tight during those college years and I know I wouldn't be able to go as often. Sale thief with going from a premium to socal or deluxe. I think everyone should look at their own financial and personal situation to decide what's best for them. - LisaKL  748.4 #236 8:35AM
@shel68 I thought they were that low too, my parents used to buy us one every year for our christmas presents. (or should I say santa did) lol. Then I started working there in high school and didn't need a pass anymore. By the time I bought myself one, it was at that price. Oh how the times have changed, but knotts prices have lowered this year. - Seacow  486.1 #409 8:37AM
Auz and my pass expire this month. We arent sure when/if we will renew thos year. We know we will likely renew, but its harder for those who live far away from DL. Not only is it $499 for the pass. Its the money for gas, food, etc. It all adds up. Unfortunately, we all arent lucky enough to have a high paying job or the ability to save so we have to sacrafice things here and there. We can make it fine financially... But tack on the extra $150 or so for gas, $50 for food, and whatever for hotel if we cant bum a couch at a friends place. Plus, having to miss work adds up. Its a nice chunk of change we need if we want to come down as frequently as we like to justify buying a pass. Is it worth it? Of course. Can we afford it? Probably. But I think the toughest question is this the smartest financial decision we can make?bIts definitely a sad day when you have to contemplate renewing your ap. I agree that they should offer something a lot better than what they do for long time passholders. - michelledork  696.2 #261 8:41AM
Is the monthly payment too expensive too? I did that during nursing school and would escape to the park for a break and to study. Maybe as a birthday/Christmas gift everyone can chip in? Although I can afford it, my pass has turned into a Christmas gift my parents love to give. It's all we for gifts as a family and then we go that day and spend time together in the park. Anyway, just a thought  - KissDclown  1089.1 #156 8:47AM
For us it depends if Mom deportation hearing goes wrong in September and she is forced to leave the country. Also, the cost of parking has to go into the equation. It is interesting that on the DL website that the price of a one day pass is showen as $76 thru December 31, 2011. It would be interesting if that is not adhered to. - sr_citizen_space_ranger  66.0 #4123 8:47AM
Renewed my Deluxe AP at reunion. Hope to get a chance to use it again. Do they have a discount this year if you renew before expiration? - E-Ticket  1402.0 #110 8:47AM
We live in Arizona and wish we they had a payment plan for outside of socal residents - dsnyfam4  3.6 #26489 8:51AM
disney is expensive even with an annual pass so when we go we always eat before the park and after we leave and try not to buy anything while we are there....umm we try - candycane  7.4 #12697 8:52AM
@halloweenonchristmas- I'm the same way. Some people are quick to judge, especially on your ranking. I have been on this site since December but I dont go to the parks weekly and enter wait times to get a higher boost and I don't always comment on EVERYTHING like some do so my score isn't that high either. But I feel the same way. We don't live in so cal so we don't get the monthly payment plan option like others. And yes, gas, food, hotel prices and time off work all take in account for being able to afford the price jump. Yes, it did seem like the price just went up last year also but it seems like now every year it will go up. We have a pass this year but we only renew it every other year. We can afford it also but sometimes other things come up, like kid stuff or house stuff, so we decide to wait until the next year - brodysmommy  413.1 #507 8:54AM
After reading all these posts, I have come to the conclusion that the cost of the annual pass is a big deal, but it is not the biggest issue. It's the cost of everything else. When you combine food, gas, and all other Disney visit expenses, it adds up. Consider this, though: An annual pass is about $1.50 per day. How many of us spent two or three times that each day on Starbucks, cigarettes, or fast food last year? In this economy, we may have to sacrifice a bit to feed our Disney cravings. - DoleWhipComa  16.9 #7510 8:55AM
My wife and I won't be renewing ours. We live in Oregon and my wife just isn't wanting to go often enough to make it worth the price : ( - fletch  120.9 #3134 8:55AM
I am so willing to buy something from the Home Shopping network for $500 using 4-month flex pay yet I look at $500 divided over a year and I think wow that is a lot of money. Lol. - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.3 #152 8:56AM
E-ticket...yes they do. - toph  2418.2 #50 8:59AM
I actually have looked at transferring jobs to socal so we could do the payment plan .....anybody in need of a Marketing and Admission Director for Skilled Nursing Facility...LOL! - dsnyfam4  3.6 #26489 8:59AM
On some days, my $1.50 chicken nuggets cravings win over my Disney cravings.... - LisaKL  748.4 #236 9:12AM
I agree DoleWhipComa, but when you live in Arizona like us, it costs us about $1,000 for three of us with tickets, gas, food and hotel. We stay at low price hotels and we bring food for breakfast and snacks in the park. - MikeyMouse  122.0 #3110 9:15AM
I may not be renewing, with cut hrs and school to pay for I may just get a so cal pass or renew my other passes - DisneyVillain  356.0 #618 9:16AM
@MikeyMouse: Exactly. My wife an I live in Las Vegas. If we were to take three or four trips a year to Disneyland, the cumulative costs are quite high. 2010 was "The Year of Disney" for us. 2011 was not. Maybe next year, huh? - DoleWhipComa  16.9 #7510 9:22AM
We also have 5 premium passes. I let them expire when they came up but I couldn't stand not have them so we got them back.monthly payments. Totally worth it!!! - loudogg  0.1 #100697 9:30AM
I'm glad I was able to renew before this. Looks like it's time to start saving now for next year! I'm glad I live close enough that a trip to the parks doesn't cost much more than the admission. - LilSterner  5066.1 #21 9:32AM
. Unfortunately us. Buying 4 is just too much. Wish I lived in socal for payment plans.  - lockshockbarrel  245.4 #1354 9:39AM
I only buy one premium and this new price increase is a huge turn off - mstiauna27  89.9 #3650 9:48AM
I'm buying another one today before the increase tomorrow, on our way to the park now cause we can't credit our hopper towards the ap online or get credit for at a later time. CM said transaction has to be completed today, so up to the park we GO!!!! - MaheaLuvsDisney  243.5 #1379 9:49AM
Until the monthly payments option goes away (which I hope it never will), we will be lucky enough to have our APs. - LBChica  2376.3 #57 9:53AM
Well i still want to get our AP. We are going in december so i have 6months to save & if i can save the extra for the AP then im getting them. IF my boyfriend okays it. He makes the money so he has final say :) - Jennabennabofenna  32.2 #5447 9:59AM
If you look at Disney's justification for the price hike its because accordong to the Orange county register " the research says that the prices are excellent for the value of the entertainment..." Meaning the survey they ask people at random and the entrance or park exit. What we have to do is do the survey when asked and respond too expensive and not a good value for the money and let's see what kind of excuse they use next year. - gabes0969  482.4 #413 10:03AM
So here's a thought for folks with multiple passes per household...you could try spreading out your purchases so it's not such a bit hit all at once? Like get one every other month? Not the most convenient but would be easier on the paycheck. Just my $0.27. - iDreamAboutDumbo  320.0 #752 10:16AM
I'm on the fence at this point. I have until December to decide. A big mot8vator for us this year has been star Tours...we'll see. - ToshiStation  54.4 #4426 10:19AM
Lol @ gabes0969! Quit raving about DL in the surveys, people! :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  601.0 #319 10:20AM
Ain't got no job and all my money's spent. Can't pay my rent but I'm still fly. Probably won't be getting it next year  - mozbaby  132.2 #2928 10:21AM
We have the so cal select passes & now that 1 of us has a job will be renewing this year. Thinking about upgrading to the next one up, but now that prices have gone up, we are not sure..does anyone know how much parking will be?? - MisFit.Mouse  674.9 #277 10:44AM
I didn't see any information on an increase in parking fees but that doesn't mean it won't happen. Should be more information on the AP website tomorrow. - sr_citizen_space_ranger  66.0 #4123 10:57AM
Yeah I didn't see one either but in the article it did state the parking was going up..ill be checking the website if not I bet someone on here will post - MisFit.Mouse  674.9 #277 11:00AM
I told myself I wouldn't after they raised prices last year...and then I found Mw. Instead of letting it expire, I upgraded back to premium! Lol! Disney wins. - bluefairy  643.3 #293 11:16AM
So after reading everyones comments. I don't think it's so much about the AP prices going up it's about the gas, the parking, hotels, time off work, food and so on. I just worry about paying my pass and when I read a few comments saying they weren't going to renew because of the number of passes they would have to buy it bums me out. There's nothing better then going to Disneyland when your a kid. Shoot sometimes I wish I could be 8 again when I go to the park. - halloweenonchristmas  6.8 #13486 11:17AM
I will be dropping the 2000 for our 4 passes next year. Worth the expense to see happiness on my kids faces - unclebeezy  246.3 #1338 11:22AM
I may be Gettin a promotion at work so if that goes well then I'll be able to maintain my premium pass status!! I gotta get my fix! - Briana  241.0 #1409 11:24AM
I remember when we last bought our Premium AP it was $319 I can't believe how much its gone up ! - WaltSentMe  329.6 #702 11:24AM
@LBChica, hopefully they won't get rid of payment plans. I'm doubtful they would do that if it's working so well, but you never know. The payment plan is the ONLY reason why this single mom with two kids can get her family's APs. - nittywitty  195.8 #1989 11:35AM
I'm renewing mine next year. The way I see it is after 5 trips, it's paid for plus parking is free with the premium as well. I've already been 4 times, plus the payment plan makes it easier. - Warpedlogic  7.4 #12631 11:38AM
Just renewed mine yesterday to avoid the price increase. Mine expires next month. - Katrayher  764.5 #230 11:44AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of August 31, 2015
Look for light crowds this week until Labor Day weekend begins on Friday. Disneyland and California Adventure will close early for the second week in a row (DL 9pm, DCA 8pm). Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 50s (approx 60% capacity) -- that means it was a very slow week. Even Labor Day last year (which fell on the 1st) averaged in the mid 70s, which is light for a holiday. Now that most schools are back in session, we should see lighter crowds at the Parks until Halloweentime begins! To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Aug 31, 2015 9:23PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  495.8 #400 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7168 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  399.9 #532 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  162.3 #2469 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  239.8 #1423 5:04PM
summer surely has been very busy!  - MarshaMouse  4834.2 #22 12:18AM
I was there this week, Tues, Wed.,Thur. Very hot and muggy. Long lines except single rider lines were great. Because we had 3 days we didn't mind waiting in line. It's so fun to people watch while you wait. We had a great time. Can't wait until next time to go back. - Popcorn  9.4 #10635 9:33AM

TOP 5 THINGS to do this week at the Disneyland Resort:

1. Watch the new "Paint the Night" parade 8:50 and 11pm nightly.

2. Watch the new "Disneyland Forever" Fireworks show at 9:30pm nightly.

3. See the new "World of Color" 9pm and 10:15pm nightly.

4. Try to find a "Made with Magic" wand or paintbrush which allow you to interact with select Disney experiences and merchandise.
