Renewed my AP today!

 Go stand on your soapbox somewhere else. Read Rules-Faqs regarding what is allowed for posting. NO POLITICS. NO COMPLAINING. Go occupy micechat. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 1:18PM
Geesh! Reread my comments. No soapbox here. I was responding to others comments, and from the looks of my posts nothings political either, just facts. Ive read the rules, maybe you should to, because I'm sure theres a rule about being rude. - buddygreen  7.6 #13307 1:24PM
Splash is a good guy buddygreen so no worries, he's just venting cause he's sick of seeing my Mug get bumped every day! Lol - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 1:41PM
Thanks donnie - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 1:48PM
Hey I like your mug. lol I'm surprised I haven't come by that post yet. Haha. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 1:51PM
Congrats! My pass expires in February, gotta renew soon! - rbeezy  703.0 #273 10:45AM
Last night at a Xmas party I was asked Why are you such a Disney NUT! I said I have grow up with Disney. I use to live 5 min away just down Harbor Blvd. - Fantasmicfan1  1538.2 #110 12:43PM

Thats not nice. Oh and Nancy Grace doesn't cover politics, shes the reporter that goes after lost kids and other weirdos that hurt kids. So... Your comment doesn't make much sense. Peace Love N Mickey Ears to you too! - buddygreen  7.6 #13307 1:16PM
Lol! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 1:19PM
I'm referring to the fact that Nancy Grace starts arguments and forces her opinion on others. Which you are doing and no one really cares to hear you complain about prices. Complaining is against the rules here, so suck it up and move on. There's a reason why the tickets are expensive, to make it that not EVERYONE can afford it. If everyone could, the park would be packed every day. Just think outside of the box instead of trying to twist this into some political debate. - Nyghtngale  572.3 #355 2:02PM
Goes back to the you can please some of the people some of the time.. ..statement. - Katrayher  781.0 #239 1:05PM

Congrats - piratemom  467.6 #462 11:09AM
Beware for higher prices! Can you believe they raise them every year? This year they changed the price from 400 to 475 and if you do monthly payments its now 39.00 a month. Grrr Disney.. Things are so expensive everywhere in and out of the parks (when its a Disney item), and all Disney items are made in China. I would like to know, where does all the $ go to? Shouldn't it be enough to make ticket prices lower? Idk just a lil venting, I renewed mine Friday, and was like... The new price is what? - buddygreen  7.6 #13307 11:46AM
I think it's worth every penny :) - Jillian  767.1 #244 11:48AM
$39.92 to be exact. - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.5 #163 11:50AM
FYI not a place to vent about price increase bcuz you know we'll pay the price any way because we love it so much - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #25 11:50AM
It's called corporate greed and unfortunately all corporations get away with it because we all just except it And pay the new prices year after year - Kurt76  125.5 #3110 12:04PM

Wooooo whoooo!!! - Jo_ohanna  387.4 #581 11:50AM
It's true, I payed it too. However, I feel like the price is not reflective of Walt Disneys love for Disneyland instead, it reflects the monopoly of the Disney corporation and the money hungry people who work for the big whigs. Watch the movie, "motel kids of Orange County." Then maybe this point about price increase would be understood. Most people that work here only get paid minimum wage, and as it shows in the movie some don't even make enough to afford rent on an apartment and have to live in the motels surrounding Disneyland. I'll pay the prices, but I would really like to see the money go to the right things and people, and jobs in China and families that are forced to live in Motels accross from, the Happiest place on earth are not them. Peace, Love and Mickey ears - buddygreen  7.6 #13307 11:59AM
It's a hard knock life. - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.5 #163 12:03PM
The money isn't for charity it's for entertainment and production. - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.5 #163 12:04PM
That's business for ya. - Jillian  767.1 #244 12:06PM
Wait, if there's studio apartments for rent in Anaheim for 800 or less that would be 26 a day... where are there motels near Disney that are cheaper than renting? Are they the type of place you wouldn't want to stay? - Chris_E  25.6 #6448 12:07PM
"jobs in China and families" ?? lost me. - misschurro  6361.2 #17 12:10PM

Annie was right, it is a hard knock life! But I'm not sure about the charity comment. People should get paid a comparable price to what the company is worth and in a time like now, where USA and Cali needs all the money we can get and we need to expect Disney toys to be made in our Country. Not a lot to ask. I love Disney but I also love Things that make sense and are fair. And sometimes Disney doesnt make sense. - buddygreen  7.6 #13307 12:11PM
this applies to 99% of companies. please don't come to MW to knock on Disneyland and HOW they run their business. It is YOUR choice to go to the parks. This app is supposed to be about Vacation Atmosphere and joy and happiness. - misschurro  6361.2 #17 12:15PM
Nobody forces me to buy APs for myself and family.Disneylamd isnt cheap to operate.I belive that for what I pay esch year is still a great value. - Motorboatrider  38.4 #5300 12:14PM

All I know is that lower ticket prices would mean massive, unbearable crowds likely leading to the park being closed down on most days. I will never complain about the ticket prices. - Bo22  394.2 #570 12:20PM
and, we all know what sort of "quality" you get from the less expensive places, right??? - misschurro  6361.2 #17 12:22PM
So true... And the crowds already get nuts cuz of the monthly payment option. - buddygreen  7.6 #13307 12:26PM

As an AP holder and have been for years ( I can remember it at $99.00 for a premium) I just renewed all 6 for almost $3000.00. This is our Xmas presents to our kids. I live DisneyLand! But wish it was a bit cheaper. - Fantasmicfan1  1538.2 #110 12:24PM
Wowza! Yes I remember the premium being 200, and that was 10 years ago. What a great Christmas present to your family. Its very pricey but at least this Christmas gift keeps on giving. That's a lot of Disney Dollars though ;) - buddygreen  7.6 #13307 12:31PM
Ouch! - jacdanfan  11394.2 #5 1:04PM

This is my first year as an AP holder.  I decided to go with premium and feel like it was a great deal.  Free parking, discount on food, and discount on purchases.

I don't know much about working for Disney.  Do they give their employees benefits?  If they're giving employees health benefits, this is a huge thing.  A lot of people who've always had insurance don't understand how bad it is to live without it.
- Chris_E  25.6 #6448 1:05PM
Full time employees do, and it can take years to reach that status. Otherwise it's mostly minimum wage. - AWholeNewWorld  327.9 #759 1:07PM
Better than Dominos where they had me scheduled 35 hrs, working 40 but I wasn't considered full time because I wasn't *scheduled* 40 hrs! So... zero benefits except 40% off pizza. - Chris_E  25.6 #6448 1:14PM

Ahem... I love having my premium passes. No schedule to check, valet parking (just kidding), nice discounts, and all the Disney you can handle! - Plumiegirl  10135.2 #8 1:21PM
I love my Premium pass too. For some reason this thread keeps getting bumped to the top and the order of my comments are all scrambled. It's funny but at least ppl are speaking their minds. Trust me- I love my pass- had it for years, I go all the time and know it's worth :) Peace Love N Mickey Ears :) - buddygreen  7.6 #13307 1:33PM
Not really sure what you were hoping to accomplish by bringing all this up...Prices for everything are increasing--I'm honestly more upset that it costs me $3.50 for a tall caramel macchiatto at Starbucks, lol. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 1:23PM
