May 20, 2012 7:24 AM  Disneyland Talk Land
Sorry for this post. New prices are up.

Here's the deal. Last year Disney was thinking about ending the AP park hoppers due to it will be over crowed in Cars Land. They said it will be more locals in DCA then tourist. So my guess is at the last min was to raise park prices to control AP guess. It hasn't been a full year from the last price increase. No theme park in the world is worth $649 a year in AP. it may be a deal to a single person, but to a family of 4 or 6, it's really out of there budget. That's a price of a small car payment. It's sick what there doing. - Gadgetman  288.9 #845 8:20AM
I agree with Gadgetman...If i was single the price wouldn't bother me. When you have a family of 4 or more then its out of the budget. - bigpete  276.3 #936 8:58AM
I am single, and with only one income the price hike is very difficult for me, not as bad as a large family, but still... - BRabbit  466.2 #383 9:00AM
It's $1,000 for a Tokyo Disney and Disney Sea AP - Coaster  13926.3 #1 9:03AM
It's worth it to me. - MXPrincess399  630.8 #251 9:12AM
Yeah, looks like I won't be cold chillin with all the MW'rs anytime soon. And that's with both my wife and I holding jobs! Sads. Seems like now-a-days spending time browsing MW is more about watching other people shop shop shop and spend spend spend, while I save save save. Retirement AP, I'll have you in my grips in another 20 years!!! - littleoysterz  232.8 #1411 10:27AM

Why don't you just go once in awhile instead of everyday. I think you are getting a bargain. - Mickeyandfriends  4.8 #15914 10:49AM
Oh I agree! As a single mom I am going back and forth as to if I am going to be able to afford to renew our AP's. This is a difficult decision because we have made some amazing friends through Mouse Wait and it's going to be hard not seeing them as often. I pray that things work out so we may get our APs renewed this year. - ohhhtoodles  365.2 #529 11:07AM
As a single person that new premium price bothers me and very upsetting. Disney is becoming very very greedy. Even more kids won't be able to enjoy Disney because of the prices. Great Job Disney Executives!! - mstiauna27  89.9 #3472 11:36AM
I have to disagree. I'm disappointed as well, but what is sick is the fact that people coming to Disney for a two day trip which is probably there once a year Vaccation, and can't hardly do anything because lines are soo long. As you mentioned, they could have completely done away with the program, but they didnt. Disneyland is the ONLY park that is worth this price. It will still pay for itself in a very limited number of visits. We have been very spoiled. I have friends all over the world who would die to go to Disneyland. I also have friends that are considered under poverty, and never been, even at old price. Everything is relative, and we need to understand this theory! - Zipitydoodahdad  269.0 #1023 12:10PM
Going to Disneyland as often as you want is a luxury and not a right. I think it's sad when we become sooo complacent that we feel we are ENTITLED to do these very luxurious trips. Some families save for years, just to go for a few days in their entire life. I'm sorry, but this bugs me. Again, I'm disappointed that I can't afford the new passes, but I would never call Disney names or make blanket statements where the realities are being severely distorted. I DON'T LIKE IT, but I understand it, is a fair statement. - Zipitydoodahdad  269.0 #1023 12:17PM
You need to spin your outlook on it. If you do payments...let's say it's $40/$50 a month....that is STILL cheaper than a one day ticket. So even if you go once a month your going at a discounted rate. I'm single but fortunate enough to have a well paying job so I can continue going. If its that important to go maybe there are other luxuries you can cut out. Maybe here isn't. But as Zipp said...it is a luxury. - KissDclown  1089.2 #124 12:24PM
Now I'm really gonna rustle some feathers, I'm going to still get a pass, not sure which one, but with less people buying premium passes, my day will be much more enjoyable! Even handicap lines are out of control this year! Thank you Disney! - Zipitydoodahdad  269.0 #1023 12:26PM
Well I was talking to Alex (churrohoarder) and he said the price increase is really only going to amount to one less dinner per month either at Disneyland or another resturant or maybe bringing the kids anacks rather than buying snacks. Once he put it like that I wasn't quite so sad. I guess I have to make dinner once a month now. But in all honesty, Disneyland is a part of our life, it will make lines shorter and will weed some of the younger teens out that have potty mouths. So if you look at the positives, it will probably be a good thing! 😁 - Minnis2Society  369.9 #518 1:52PM
Im sure there are potty mouths that can afford it XD - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3367.7 #26 2:08PM
It all comes to supply and demand. Even after the increase I'll bet you don't see much of a drop in attendance. And I think it's still a helluva bargain. Check out a 2hr show in Vegas for $120.00 or more per person - nitromouse  275.1 #953 3:34PM
Wow I have been a pass holder for only one year, but sadly after this news my family of six has decided not to renew. πŸ˜” - ChadP  6.4 #12199 5:48PM
$150 increase for Premium AP is unjustifiable. :( - PrinceCorey  4309.5 #20 7:35AM
Yes it is. My guess is cars land went over budget by the same 30% - Vinylchaser  1945.7 #60 7:39AM
Don't forget part of the 150 is the 30 bump for parking so it's 120 AP increase plus the 30 parking increase It's still a jump - mike714  338.1 #608 7:55AM
About 8 years ago it cost $199. What happened! For several years we've lived with refurbs and ride closures and still endured yearly price hikes! Now Bamm! - jacdanfan  6211.3 #8 9:02AM
Agreed. I agree with what some are saying about, "don't complain, Disney isn't a requirement, it's a luxury," but a 30% (or so) jump is absurd. That's not ethical. - KylaShea  625.8 #257 9:27AM
THIS^^^^^^^^^^^^^ - splashphotoCM  885.6 #158 10:09AM
$30 for parking!?? - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3367.7 #26 10:37AM
parking hasn't increased (yet). it's still $15 on the website. doesn't mean that it won't go up.. but i can see it going to $20, not $30... but then again, i'm sure we all saw a 10% increase, not 30%.. sigh. I'd like to think part of the reason was Disney Paris losing 2% net income last year, and Tokyo Disney losing 1% from the Tsunami/quake closure.. and the ridiculously expensive and lavish Aulani resort that opened last year as well. And... the unopened Shanghai Disney that's slated to open in a few years.. money has to come from somewhere and fund other places. sighhh, again. - SultanPprShkr  328.9 #647 3:52PM
The price hike stinks, but the parks are consistently overcrowded. In addition to capitalizing on an opportunity to bring in a large amount of revenue, the price hike is an attempt to thin the crowds and make it so that DL isn't just a members only club. It stinks but you can sure understand why they are doing it. - Zooter  1379.5 #87 8:56AM
πŸ‘ well said! - Duchess_SMK  5344.1 #14 9:00AM
I don't think Disney has ANY desire to "thin" the crowds. It's all about making money. I'll still buy the Premium passes for my family of three, only this time I'll buy the premier passes. Might as well get the most for the money spent. We went to DL 58 times last year, so we still saved money in the long run. - wg4ever  307.7 #743 9:17AM
The issue that Zooter is referring to are the AP's that come to the parks and don't spend money. An issue at DLR is increased crowds without the expected revenue turnover. DLR AP's like many of us go to the parks for a few hours, spend little to no money in the parks, and go home. - EpicDio  427.8 #430 10:12AM
Agreed! Park crowds are ridiculous - KissDclown  1089.2 #124 1:00PM
I agree. And when are they going to charge extra at Christmas so the crowd goes away? - Mickeyandfriends  4.8 #15914 1:03PM
I don't see them charging extra for Christmas unless they do a special holiday party similar to WDW. With DLR being in such a populated area already we will naturally see increased crowds during the times that schools are on vacation - thus the term peak seasons. - EpicDio  427.8 #430 1:24PM
Can I just say what bothers me more than anything else about this discussion regarding the price hike is the us vs them mentality. Locals vs. tourists. Yes the parks are busy, and have gotten busier over the years. I don't think any of us can say for certain why or that it is the reason for the price increase (though I do acknowledge it may be a contributing factor). The collection of people attending the park are a part of what makes Disney special. That means everyone and no one group more than the other. So it breaks my heart to see people make comments like "one less local to get in my way." also Walt said Disneyland would never be finished. Carsland, and the carnation/current princess faire over halls are just part of that. And those changes cost money. Is it expensive and does it suck that it's going up so much? Yes it does. But arguing about it and about who's fault it is won't fix it. If it bothers you so much contact Disney, write a letter, don't fight about it here. We're all here to support each other because of our combined love for the mouse and walt's dream. So let's support each other and our differences of opinion. - Pixarprincess  539.3 #311 3:12PM
Sorry for the small novel - Pixarprincess  539.3 #311 3:13PM
Obviously Disney saw a need to increase prices. Maybe the expansion went over budget. Maybe the cost of good and shipping is too costly at current prices. Disney probably woul like to hire more people and give them raises (yay! Helps the economy). Maybe utilities are going through the roof for them. Either way, it's happened and there is nothing we can do other than pay the pice or not. That is the only control people have over this. If Disney means that much to people they will find a way to afford it by either cutting back on other things or finding a better paying job. - KissDclown  1089.2 #124 3:20PM
I agree kiss! And I will be keeping my pass. It's not up to me to decide how much they charge, just to decide what I can spend. For me going to the parks is important enough that I will sacrifice elsewhere to make it happen. I understand and feel horrible for those who can no longer afford it right now, I really do. - Pixarprincess  539.3 #311 3:25PM
I'm ok with blaming John Carter, even though I pre-ordered it lol. - madsdad  1800.7 #65 3:25PM
I preordered it too 😁 and I will be keeping my pass as well. It is my playground and one of the few luxuries I give myself. Disneyland and my hairdresser....won't ever give those up haha - KissDclown  1089.2 #124 3:29PM
Can I just give you a standing ovation now? I 100% agree with all of your comments in this post! Beautifully said!! I also agree with ZippityDooDahDad! I'll renew my pass this year and I'll be getting one for my soon to be 3 year old, I can't put a price tag on the memories I am building with my family. I feel very fortunate to have the privilege to continue to go to DL! - NurseJennJillO  314.6 #715 3:55PM
Very well said Pixarprincess! - Autoalice  156.6 #2440 4:12PM
I absolutely agree. I don't usually attend the share holders meetings, but I will be attending the next one. Absurd prices. Let Disney cut the salaries of all those Disney Channel celebrities, newscasters and morning show personalities. DISNEY/ABC, YOU HAVE GONE TOO FAR!!!!! - splashphotoCM  885.6 #158 10:11AM
I wish we could sent this entire post to Bob Iger. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #158 5:51PM
I agree Splash ...maybe the next MW Magazine should address this.. - PrinceTeaJack  911.1 #154 11:19AM
Reality is as long as people will pay it, Prices will continue to rise. In this jobless, forclosure filled crap of an economy disneyland is one of the thriving entities out there and they are making us pay for it for sure. My annual pass price had doubled in the past 4 years. For my family of 7 it will cost us close to $3500 for ap's that makes me want to puke considering that doesn't include gas, hotel, food, or spending. In trying to control the locals and the over 1 million ap holders they are screwing the family. Someone should be fired. - DlandDude  459.9 #387 12:08PM
What makes me puke is people who feel they are entitled to to do Disney more than once per year! Maybe you should be upset that you can't fly to Paris 13 times a year cause the price is so expensive. If you have had the luxury of having annual passes for you and your children for a year or more, your kids are already spoiled and certainly not going to die if they don't go for a whole year! ( by the way, my kids are spoiled and go at least 20 times a year) go to knotts. It's cheaper, dirtier, has no magic. Sounds perfect! People who are upset and bummed out about the increase, like me, I can understand. But people who start talking like this and feel the world is out to screw you, need to get a clue. - Zipitydoodahdad  269.0 #1023 4:15PM
I said the family is getting screwed not myself. I'll make my own decision as whether or not to buy a new ap. You're entitled to your opinion as am i. Deal with it - DlandDude  459.9 #387 5:33PM
Gee, I'm sorry you are being forced to buy tickets to this "luxury". - SorcererBHhaha  409.0 #457 1:04AM
Disneyland is just supply and demand... Disney knows the crowds are out of control so I think this is their answer to an out of control problem. I do not think it is greed at all, or to compensate for the expenses of Cars Land. I think the problem was the desicion to allow payment plans for AP's ... That has been the downfall of the park since its inception. Disney has popularity highs and lows, this is just a high time... These price hikes are nothing more than a desperate attempt to regain order and balance at the parks... - BambooMike  133.4 #2784 1:17PM
Thank you! Very well put and I agree 100%! In fact, I do not think they will make more money, but probably loose money, but this was a smart business move in the long run. Disney was not built for californians to go every week. But for the whole world. It's a Vaccation destination, not a community park! - Zipitydoodahdad  269.0 #1023 1:31PM
I agree also. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  505.0 #345 1:35PM
Well said, I agree. - kweenofhearts  18.1 #6459 9:56PM
Can I say that my car cost $1200, so buying a yearly pass to some place, even Disney, for more than half of that is ridiculous to me. It's more than one months rent for me, and I could also buy all of my books for the rest of my college career for that price. I really don't give a darn about cars land, I didn't like the movie and I probably won't like the land from what I've seen. So for me, when putting it in perspective, it's not worth it. The only reason I but premium is because the premium is the only pass that's not blocked out on my birthday. So after this year, I have no huge milestone birthdays coming for a while so I don't think I'll renew and I'll just spend my money doing the millions of other things there is to do n so cal. - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #146 8:49AM
$1200 LLD!? Are you rolling a Phantom? Oh, you didn't mean Per Month, did you? Hehe - Normstar  87.7 #3498 9:40AM
Lol I have an old volvo - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #146 10:30AM
But your situation isn't forever. Your in college creating a better life for you. Disneyland will always be there and after you graduate an get your first job you will be back and enjoying The parks worry free! - KissDclown  1089.2 #124 12:29PM
You make a great point! If your car is worth $1200, and your schooling could be paid for with this, then you should not be wasting money on annual passes. Plain and simple. I'm not any different. I have a very old car, no income from an accident, and can barely pay my share of rent. I have NOOO business having a pass. If I get the income I am expecting later this year, then at that point I'll get the passes. But I am Not crying and getting all hater-fied because they raised the price! It's about time! I think it should be even higher. Teach spoiled southern Californians that they have been lucky! - Zipitydoodahdad  269.0 #1023 4:40PM
Bottom line-the larger increases the past few years have been because Disney made the AP more accessible to the masses by offering monthly payments. In this time attendance has also increased. I do not feel I'm "spoiled" or I am "privileged" because I go as often as I do and Ive been an AP holder now for 10+ years. The monthly payments should have never been offered and yes, that is MY personal opinion. The majority of people going to the parks are APs. I remember when u could go on Sunday and the park was almost empty, not so now. I believe the price increase is to discourage so many APs but if Disney doesn't want so many pass holders they should lower the premium to about $350 and take away the monthly payment option. Disneyland should NOT be a luxury that MOST people cannot afford. I understand it's still a business...maybe they should stop putting the cart before the horse with all the expansions, new properties and everything else and focus on QUALITY of the brand which is what Walt would want! (getting off soap box now) - CM_Tamstirr  537.3 #313 10:52PM
$649.00 is steep but I think we Premium holders will still fork over the $$$$$$. Until it hits $1,000 Disney is safe.. - snappy  303.7 #764 7:56AM
A 25% price increase is HUGE. Most companies consider 3-5% per year. 25% is crazy. - Normstar  87.7 #3498 10:14AM
I understand economical price increases. $1 isn't the same as it was back in the fifties, and I get that. However, last I checked, we were still in a recession. I know my income hasn't increased by 30% lately, and I doubt whether many others have. I also understand that with the reno there will be more park to enjoy, but not 30% more...we were fortunate to renew at the old rates, but it will very possibly be the last time we do so. - LittleAprilShowers  549.6 #303 11:40AM
Same here. I was lucky yesterday to renew our passes until June of next year. After that, doesn't look so good. Unless I win the lotto. :) - LizO  471.1 #379 11:46AM
This is not going to be a popular reply, but here it goes. So many AP holders live so close that they go all the time. They bring in food, don't stay at hotels, and don't buy much merchandise. They are filling up the park making more congestion and longer lines. The amount of money spent per visit is low. I have an AP, but takes me 5 hours to get there. I stay at hotels, eat every meal and snacks at the park, and buy merchandise every visit. I come about 16 days a year, tops. I don't have the option of payment plans. I will not renew this year after 10 years having an AP. I totally understand the increase, there are just too many people there all the time. - AZDisney  595.6 #275 11:48AM
I eat and buy stuff everytime I am there and I live 15 min away. I might not spend as much per trip as you do but I make more trips. Also we hardly ever ride rides, we're there to hang out, so I don't think this stereotype about local ap's rings true 100% of the time - Pixarprincess  539.3 #311 12:00PM
AZ Disney.....Exactly what I have been trying to say. Thank you! - Mickeyandfriends  4.8 #15914 12:04PM
I agree -- availability of annual passes drives visit patterns and behaviors by locals that differ from tourists. Disneyland is really sized for a tourist crowd. Years ago, there used to be an "off season" when the park crowds were manageable. Those days are gone, and I think part of the reason is APs. I'm guessing that Disney feels that if AP holders are taxing the infrastructure more than other visitors, they should bear more of the cost burden. It's the same way in the trucking industry--trucks put more miles on roads, wearing them out more than cars, so trucks pay more in road use taxes. I'm an AP holder too, so I'm also feeling the price pinch, but I'm thinking that there's rationale behind the increase. - mistereeyore  166.2 #2291 12:14PM
That makes perfect sense to me, but if that's the case, why raise Park Hoppers, too? I live 1000 miles away and visit twice a year....the deluxe pass was the better buy for us. Granted, for a one-time visit that isn't the case, but those park hopper tickets are getting pretty outrageous, too. Our first visit, we could only afford a two-day hopper. That was $169. Now they are $200, less than a year later. - PeachKay  311.1 #726 12:28PM
i do think that based on this reasoning was one of the many reasons for the increase... especially for the premium passholders. I'm one of these people, but every time i go, i buy food (could you believe i've never had a churro, but ALWAYS get a cinnamon roll EVERY VISIT? jolly holiday - SultanPprShkr  328.9 #647 5:26PM
We live a city over and go once a week when we go it's just a few hours but never leave without spending atleast $100 - MinnieMaddiesMommie  46.7 #4364 10:42PM

I really don't blame Disney for the increase. They always produce a product that is second to none and you basically get what you pay for. It's just a bummer that admission to the parks is slowly moving out of people's price range, including me. $2600 for my family....can't do it. - A_kid_again  8.5 #9889 8:42AM

Yesterday even the CMs were saying how ridiculous it is. Some even urged guests to write letters about how upsetting it is to have to shell out even more for our APs.

Hey, if I lived close I would go more than once a week. Why not? It's a magical place! - PeachKay  311.1 #726 10:56AM
Exactly tiredofcrowds! More people going more often means they HAVE to increase prices or they'd lose money in the pass. The mouse isn't dumb people; if the prices increases really bother you that much, don't go so often. - littlemsfrecklesCM  249.9 #1200 11:00AM
You know what it's not fair to say its crazy to go often. Why sell an unlimited pass of you don't expect some people to use it as such. I live close and go frequently. But I also spend in the park almost every time I am there, I eat and purchase pins. - Pixarprincess  539.3 #311 11:04AM
I go about once or twice a month. Not exactly what constitutes in your mind as "crazy", but if you think going to DL often is considered "crazy", you are on the WRONG app. - flukefan  270.5 #1008 11:23AM
Greed plain and simple .. They know people will complain but the same people will be paying still .. There will be no crowds thinning .. It doesn't matter how exspensive it gets people will always pay wat they ask - thejza  13.3 #7541 10:22AM
The prices before were doable but this is outrageous. I see many APers calling it quits once their pass expires. I'm single and $649 is out of my price range. What would Walt think? - Ry-Ry  74.5 #3694 10:29AM
I posted this elsewhere, but I think the thread was deleted. I have mixed feelings. I can understand why people are complaining. I can't even imagine having a big family and trying to afford a trip. I'm a single mom with one kid, and I couldn't afford our first trip til my daughter was 16....but I didn't begrudge anyone who could. I was lucky. When the price increase was announced, I had already been actively saving for our next trip so I went ahead and bought APs. Now I'm hoping we will get our two to three trips out of them to make it worthwhile. 😏 I am not rich, by any means...but I live simply. I drive a car that's paid for, as does my daughter. I live in a small, crappy house. πŸ˜„ My money goes to our travel. I guess I'll keep doing it til I can't anymore because we were so late getting started! I don't see visits to Disneyland as a right, though. I never have, which is why it took so long for us to get there the first time! :) - PeachKay  311.1 #726 11:28AM

I think what's upsetting me the most about the price increase, is how much it increased overnight. Mine doesn't expire until Dec 29, my boyfriend's Jan 3- just prior to renewing for this year & purchasing his, the prices went up- but it went up $20. Since I renewed mine prior to it expiring, they took $20 off, so I still paid $479 for mine & his was $499. TheHUGE increase is what's more upsetting I suppose. I've had a few days to think about it & try to cool off a little. I understand that it's a business & prices will increase- it's the sudden increase that is such a big increase that's disheartening to me. I wouldn't be as ticked off if it was another like $20 or something like that increase. But $150? That's just offensive to us who are loyal passholders. Like I said, disheartening. - belle421  15.2 #7066 11:34AM
I was just there yesterday. I had a great time and having an AP takes the pressure off having to do it all in one day. I still have some time to renew so will have time to plan for the new price. - magicqueendom  241.7 #1305 2:57PM
I feel like a bit too many people are getting a bit too heated about this topic.....if you can afford it go, if not save up for when you can....but let's not argue over it ;-( - toriann3  12.7 #7738 8:48PM
For a family of 6 were up too $3000.00 It not like AP holders don't spend money why there in the park. I can understand an increase but how many times a year can can they hit us with $1200.00 increase? I have been an AP holder for over 12 years now. It's hard to justifive the increase again. AP holders stuck with the park when times were tuff. At lease they could do is raise it only once a year. It not like the give that pay increase to CM Just saying - Fantasmic! fan1  418.5 #446 10:34AM

If you add thus increase to last years rats is a giant bump over 2 years. What are you getting for your money ? Cars land, buena vista, mermaid, star tours, Matterhorn referb, what else? Disney pumped what a couple billion in improvements? Even with the increase for my delux pass what else can I do for 40 a month that provides all that the parks do. - mike714  338.1 #608 8:12AM

In Colorado, our only theme/amusement park is about 50 times worse than Knott's. We save our money to go to DL a couple times a year because we love it so much. I'm not sure if we'll get APs next year, we'll have to do the math since we don't have the option for monthly payments. The increases won't keep us from going, that's for sure. Disney has a prime product but I don't think DL should cost more than going to WDW. - minigirl1156  672.7 #228 8:57AM
Disgraceful. That pretty much sums it up. Is it greed or is Disney hurting for money?? I soley support my family of four and even I did have room in my budget for APs I would spend my money elsewhere. BOO!!!! πŸ˜‘πŸ’”πŸ‘Ž - ImInStitches  263.0 #1072 9:25AM
I'm curious for all of the retailers who sell these tickets as well, such as Vons and Ralphs. Do all of their plan-o-grams change within this short notice, and they've already received new cards with the prices as well? Or do they just stay the same, and at the POS, theΒ system charges more than what it says because they're connected in some way? This could be interesting... - Oinker34  1076.1 #125 9:50AM

That's kinda mean :(. Walt Disney opened Disneyland with the mindset that everyone can enjoy this magical place.. He wanted a place for families to enjoy. I think Walt would be very disappointed about the prices. - Rbyn  45.8 #4387 10:03AM
I feel everyone's pain, but no one is making us go to Disneyland. If people are still going to pay why not increase the price. It's not about Walt but the Benjamins Disney brings in. - snappy  303.7 #764 10:24AM
Rbyn He didn't expect you to go every day and crowd the parade route and the princess meet and greet. So others that want to enjoy the park don't have to wait. - Mickeyandfriends  4.8 #15914 10:38AM

Occupy Disney... We are the 99%... 😜 - BambooMike  133.4 #2784 1:36PM
My theory is that with everything finally opening they are now working on banking money in order to work on the next stages which is to build more parking and systems to get all those people into the parks and not clog up all the surface streets surrounding the parks. I remember reading about how they wanted to build another parking structure and a monorail or something system to get all those buses off the streets. When you have more single rider cars arriving because of APs you have to put them somewhere. Current parking and tram systems were designed assuming that all cars would be an average of 4 people. They figure it's the APs fault that their infrastructure is failing so we should foot the bill. Is it right? NO! But this is my theory of what they are thinking. - Autoalice  156.6 #2440 10:03AM
They can always justify the price increase if people keep buying passes.  This will be the first year in a while that we won't be renewing our passes.  When you consider the increase in gas, plus the distance to drive there, plus a family of four.....  I dont place blame on Disney, they are a business, and are there to make money.  They still put out a quality product..... Unlike my "Local" gang hang out, I mean amusement park. - ddmansprty  260.2 #1101 11:02AM

Very unsettling. I haven't decided yet because the wife and I don't have to renew until February, but these might very well be our last AP's. Cars Land and Carthey Circle had better be fabulous or we're done. - Firelt  225.3 #1506 11:42AM
I would rather get rid of the hopper option on AP's than have them raise the prices so high that I can only go to the parks with my son once a year. - DisneyRose  247.3 #1236 11:54AM
Or instead of getting rid of the option have a non hopper option as well - Pixarprincess  539.3 #311 12:04PM

I would never be able to afford APs for our family! 6 kids at that price! Yikes!!! - calidream1  397.0 #476 12:28PM
Here's my view on it. Disney Resort is an experiential thing. They just added some major attractions and added to the experience, so raising prices was essential. It's tough, especially in this economy. It's a bummer. But I don't think it was out of any mal intent. I'm not happy about it. Next year, I'll have some major decisions to make in regards to my AP, but I understand why they've done it. I sometimes forget that Disney is a business like any other and they need to make money too. Yes, the prices are kind of outrageous, but for the experience you get, I personally think it's wirth it. Just one author's opinion :) - sarahbeth  5.8 #13293 5:25PM
that should say *worth it. I should probably spell check before I post ;) - sarahbeth  5.8 #13293 5:25PM
Not happy but ultimately I don't care, it's my kid's fav place and it's cheaper to buy a pass than to buy 4 seperate 6 day passes, so I'll shell out the money. - madsdad  1800.7 #65 10:06PM
youre Only Buying two though...kinda sucks for people buying 4 or more..If it was just me I wouldnt care but Bigger families it kinda sucks.. - PrinceTeaJack  911.1 #154 11:21AM
Not happy with the price increase. I understand families save up for years to come to disneyland...but to us locals who has a family, this is something we enjoy doing locally. We cant afford expensive trips because of the rising cost of living in california tuiton alone cost more than one half of my check, but education is something we cant comprimise because its something i can give my child that no one can take away. Disneyland was a way to reward him and for our family to enjoy together and make lasting memory. Unfortunately with this price we will not be able to renew our passes. Im disappointed...i guess Knotts Berry Farm?? - iheartlilo  3.2 #29731 10:17PM
How many trips does it take to make memories? When the kids are young? As they hit the teens? When they have kids? Thats not 100 times a year, or 50, or even 25. It is a couple of times every few years. If you hadn't bought APs every year, you could have taken a nice trip. People belly aching about the price increase is people being selfish. - SorcererBHhaha  409.0 #457 10:27PM
I think the price increase is on the steep side, considering they raised it last year too. we are a family of four and go usually at the minimum twice a year ( we live in the bay area) and did renew this year and will next year if we can afford it. We just have to cut back on things, like going out to dinner once or twice a week or movies all the time things like that and to me that's worth it to help create family memories. all my stepson talks about Disney this Disney that I don't want to take that away from him. I wish they'd do the price increases more gradually so it didn't sting so much lol.. Lol - Equestrian115  212.2 #1678 10:25PM
I agree- a gradual increase wouldn't be such a shock to the system. I understand it's business - belle421  15.2 #7066 10:30PM
As long as my daughters happy we go more than enough times a year to justify the price. It sucks it happened but for the new price its still worth it to me and it will also make for less crowds sounds like a win to me. And I'm just realizing this new price annually is cheaper than my cell phone bill. Ugh those cell phone bills are killer - kameleongt  178.1 #2118 10:47PM
I find it disappointing that Disney hiked their prices so high all at once. Of course they are entitled to do what they want, but it sounds like they lost sight of how they got so successful . It is because of all of us! It is business, but not good business in my opinion when you show how much you really care about the customer by such a hike!!! They have no competition. I wrote a complaint. We all should!! Who knows what will happen when they get a lot of negative feedback on this matter! - 7mouskedoodles  340.1 #600 10:48PM
I know most people on MW are AP'ers, but as one who now visits once a year (and normally buys the Park Hopper passes as part of a vacation package), I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that a 1 day, 1 park pass is now close to $100!  I honestly thought it was around $50!  When did that happen!?!   How can a family of 4 afford close to $500 for 1 day at Disneyland - not including food or anything else?!?  WOW!!!  - msdizmaui  577.7 #284 11:18PM
Thank you for this pic as its made us relize that we should buy our tickets here in aussie as its a lot cheaper - puddy77  168.3 #2250 2:50AM
Where do u buy yours from Puddy? The last lot we got was from Expedia.com.au I'm not too bothered by a price increase. When it already costs us about $9000 to go to Disneyland for the 4 of us from Australia, a few extra bucks won't keep us away! πŸ˜ƒ - aussiekate  164.9 #2318 3:51AM
I honestly doubt the crowds are going to change much. You have to remember how many people in California have a pass, and heck some of them might not even notice the increase of price. Wanna know why? Because no matter what, people will always continue to buy when it comes to Disneyland. Sure, a group of 100 protestors can choose to boycott Disney parks, but do you think that's really going to change anything since there are people who will shell out the money no matter what the price? I just dont want to hear complaints from the people who DO expect there to be less crowds. Oh and whats with all this "APs clog up the park" jazz? Us passholders have every right to go just as the people who buy their ticket. I bought my pass with my hard earned money, you best believe I'm going to make use of it. - cavves  5.6 #13694 3:53AM

I doubt John Carter's loss in the box office is part of he increase. Avengers more than made up for that. My guess is the Carsland expansion, Matterhorn referb, and redo of the entrance of dca has gone over budget. - KissDclown  1089.2 #124 11:33AM
It's so huge I can't believe it but I think its a way as well for Disneyland to have off seasons and on seasons. Since like 2008 the park has become so crowded on every day of the year mostly because of locals. I for one am grateful they didn't do away with annual pass hoppers all together. I'm not justifying it because it is ridiculous I just believe they are trying to empty the park out a bit for those that try to travel far to it on the off seasons.

i understand and empathize with those that have more than one AP to pay for.. i just have mine, but being that i bought my two nieces deluxe passes for christmas last year, i'm sad to say that i might not be able to renew for them this year. :( what a way to ruin it for all disney fans young and old. That being said, maybe I'll pitch in when they're older so we can all go more often, because the AP is definitely worth it for me.. I go probably 2-3x a week for 52 weeks.. more often during summer and holiday seasons or if class is canceled. there have been times where i've gone 7 days straight. this price hike calls for a collective "DMV/Post Office" Sigh.

while we're doing that, Knott's is down the street from DLR, and their season pass is only $165 for the Premium equivalent. again, leave your weapons at home (or not, who cares?), but you're welcome to bring weed and alcohol and walk around among the ghetto adults - SultanPprShkr  328.9 #647 5:05PM
No thank you! Once every couple years to six flags and once a year for scary farm is plenty for me. Those places are full of rude people. It's not visually appealing an it's dirty. I'll pay the price for a safe park with quality - KissDclown  1089.2 #124 5:43PM
I made the mistake of going to six flags for the first time after 5 days at Disney. In the span of an hour I watched Aqua man pose for pics then head into the washroom for a pit stop next to my son, then saw some crazy guy almost mow down a few people in a car he was driving through the park. If I wasn't laughing hysterically I was afraid for my life. - Missshelly  692.9 #216 8:43PM
It's such an increase it will be hard to decide what to do at renewal time. I always try and pick how many days we are going to go. It's easier I make payments and be able to go when we want then shell out 400 just for us to get in the parks for one day. - angy17  180.9 #2087 5:03PM
What's crazy is $200 for a 2 day hopper ticket! We are a family of 5 and I can not see spending $1,000 for 2 days! We try to go to DL 3-4 times a year for 4-5 days at a time so the AP are still a good deal for us. - cinderella5  333.1 #625 5:57PM
I'm bothered by the increase but understand. Crowds are part of disneyland. People love Disney. With a little down payment, the monthly payment is pretty much what a date night would cost. And Disneyland is special to my boyfriend and I, as I'm sure it is to do many more. I'd prefer shorter lines. But if I'm going to be in a crowd, Id prefer a Disney loving crowd. And if you're TIRED OF CROWDS maybe disneyland is someplace you shouldn't visit so often. I'll pay whatever they charge as long as I can afford it. I love Disneyland on slower days just as much as on crowded days. There's so much to do when it's full. It's not all rides and shows. There's trading and Meet ups and rak - little_lilo  5.6 #13711 8:12PM
And RAKs. Use your imagination. Make your pass work for you. I do hope there are more AP perks though. And if not I'll just use my lass more. Since I'm paying more. I'm not orange county local. But LA is close enough. Worth every penny. - little_lilo  5.6 #13711 8:15PM

I won't lie I don't think it's to bad I mean the amout of times we go with our 3 year old just pays its self off..I mean yea it sucks but we still get our value for them :) plus the events they offer it's all so much worth it!! - MinnieMaddiesMommie  46.7 #4364 10:03PM
Ok, I'll say it. This post really belongs in The Hub. This post is taking up most of the first page of what's supposed to be Real-Time fun in the parks. Let's not start an "Occupy Mousewait Real-Time" J/K on the last part. It's not that bad yet. - wg4ever  307.7 #743 10:21PM

I am happily renewing my daughter's premium pass as her 21st birthday gift. I would much rather have her at Disneyland with all the wonderful MWers than at a frat party or meat market bar. Money well spent for peace of mind as a parent. Thanks for keeping her safe everyone! - ladylikesdisneysmom  269.6 #1018 10:43PM
Awesome mom here. Want to adopt me :-) - Villescas8  600.8 #273 10:46PM

It's great to voice our opinions here, but we should also share our displeasure to Disney! Many voices have to have some affect, after all, it is the fans and park guests who made them who they are today. Unfortunately , I am feeling like I loved what the company was meant to be, and not what it is becoming. Yes, it is a business, but it is a monopoly! I find it hard to believe Walt would have approved such a sudden giant hike. - 7mouskedoodles  340.1 #600 11:15PM
we shouldn't be complaining.. AP prices in Tokyo Disneyland is equivalent to around $1000 in USD ;) - DonaldMissingPants  298.6 #792 12:17AM
Coaster said that lol - Mrsblue  692.7 #217 12:44AM

Price increase is due to the uncertainty of CarsLand. Disney pushed and bragged about mermaid. Now look at Mermaid a total flop. I was there when Disney suits rode the Little Mermaid. They weren't happy and bashed the hell out if it. They wanted someone's head on a platter. - Bogartinbilly  7.6 #10613 5:05AM
I wouldnt call it a total flop. While I am in the boat of people who arent overly thrilled with it, do remember who Mermaid's target audience is. Young children love it, especially the girls, and DCA does not have a large offering of kiddy rides like its neighbor. Furthermore, Mermaid has a huge rider per hour capacity (much more than star tours). Small lines can make this very efficnent ride look "unpopular." however, the ride still boasts respectable wait times on crowded days. As for the stuff the disney execs did not like, some of those were changed during the recent refurb. - WhyIsTheRumGone  68.6 #3810 5:42AM
Wow! Sure glad our family bought our first APs last Monday! I don't think we would have been able to with that price hike. I'm thankful we've been blessed with the resources to do it, but doubt we'll be able to renew. :(. Going to live it up this year!! :) - marsdenmom  14.6 #7186 6:18AM
That is about as much as my mom's paycheck per month! I'm not in the business, but this is a very stupid move coming from Disney. Less people will be able to afford this now. $429 was alright but jumping it up to $649 is just plain ridiculous! And the cheapest one is not even worth the price! I'm sorry about my rant guys, but this just angers me a bit >:( guess I have to wait until I'm legal to get to get a job -_- wish I was 16 already - Ain1derland  330.3 #639 6:59AM

This is unheard of. Since I'm still a college student and relying on parents because I'm also jobless, I won't be able to even go once a year, even if it's on an off-day, like during Spring Break. I don't even know what to do anymore, even though I still LOVE Disney as much as other MW. - keli7516  186.5 #2004 2:15AM

I haven't been able to post wait times in months. - Winnie111286  686.7 #219 7:07PM
I'm also and android user waiting to participate in wait time posting. - Gabster1forDodgers  499.8 #351 8:35PM

Play Disneyland Trivia with your friends with our new WEB VERSION of the TRIVILATOR! Play single or multi-player games real-time with people from all over the world. You can also play on your iOS device with our app.

I'm addicted to playing these games. Looking to step up my Disney knowledge. Anyone is welcome to add me to a game if they like.  - Shameekz  26.2 #5428 12:11AM
No one ever seems to play when I log on.  This looks like it would be fun... - Thundermountaingal  10.9 #8411 2:49PM
i'll play you, but I usually only get to it at night since I have an android phone.  I am currently playing 8 games and everyone gets to their turn when they can.  It's fun. - Gabster1forDodgers  499.8 #351 8:24PM
Hi thundermountaingal, I think you just misunderstood how it works!  You log on whenever you are able to and answer the questions that are ready for you, then you wait until the other person/people answer the same question you answered.  Then the results are revealed, at which time everyone needs to view the results, before the next question is answered.  It sounds like it might not be what you are looking for, but you might still give it a try. I have a couple games that are over a week old and we are maybe halfway through the questions.  People get to it when they are able to, and as long as you are patient, you should be able to have fun.  If you have a bunch of games going at the same time, then you will have more activity throughout the day/night, depending when you play!  Also, if you have a game with 3 or more people, that will go even slower, so you would probably only want to play one on one games.  You can also play a single player game, which is found under the "Local Game" tab and then you would just select Single Player and then choose your trivia pack and start the game!  I set up a game with you so you can see what I mean regarding the multi-player games!  If you don't choose to accept it I will just delete it in a few days, no big deal!  I hope you have a nice day and I hope this helped explain it better :0)   - zenderella  408.7 #458 8:22AM
Thanks Zendurella. I appreciate this - Thundermountaingal  10.9 #8411 10:00AM
I've only been playing random players and that is definitely hit or miss. Anyone who wants to start a game with me is more than welcome!! Plus - you'll probably win! Lol - MissAcroBRAT  242.4 #1296 8:13AM
Just sent you a couple of invites. Let's play - Goofytom  554.7 #297 4:06PM

Let's welcome K1 SPEED to the MouseWait Family! If you want an unforgettable, adrenaline-pumping experience then you need to head to one of their nine locations in California, including Anaheim and Irvine! Their electric karts are capable of speeds of 45mph and accelerate to their top speed almost immediately. Once you see their indoor tracks in person and experience the performance of their karts, you'll be hooked! Make sure to mention MouseWait when you visit or call!

I've done several indoor carting courses (anyone surprised)and these guys do it the best! The carts are fast and the courses are challenging. Their staff is knowledgable and friendly. And Dave is right..... Two races and spaghetti arms! - NascarDave  278.7 #921 1:34PM

I just called them to price out our potential trip in June. Chris was so nice and the MW savings are phenomenal! Still waiting on work vacation approval to reserve the room!  - HNL2SFO  205.3 #1774 1:26PM
What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  9.5 #9161 3:57PM
