Before they allowed California residents to purchase the annual passports with payments, Disneyland parks were virtually empty this time of year. The year after they allowed the payment option-Disney Parks turned into over crowded malls-virtually everyday of the year. They need to end the payment option or have a five days out of every month where you pay an extra $200-$350 bucks-on top of your AP price and those days are limited to 2000-5000 people tops. - Manybugs

Scratches head on your comment. Disney is there to make money, they are not there to accommodate you. If you are not happy with the direction has Disney has taken then you shouldn't get an AP anymore. just saying. - VfxGenie 1353.6 #59 1:29PM
Honestly, I've been plenty of days in the last year that weren't crowded at all. When schools are out, they're going to be crowds and that's just a fact. I enjoy having the monthly payment option for my premium pass, especially since the price hike. And there's no way I would pay an extra $350. Personally, I think it's cool that people can enjoy the parks who might not other get the chance. - JustCantWait 794.3 #118 1:35PM
Wow so my over $3000.00 of AP don't count for any thing?
I pay a premium to be able get into the park 365 days..
I say there should be days that only premium pass could get in.. Oh wait that's black out dates.. - Fantasmic! fan1 185.0 #1807 1:42PM
AP holders saved Disney Land from going BK.. - Fantasmic! fan1 185.0 #1807 1:53PM
Ya, stick it to the less well off people (including me). I can't believe anyone would post this. - aidensmama 336.5 #446 7:31PM
Just get there early and be first in line! :))))))))) - Fantasmic! fan1 185.0 #1807 7:37PM
And would some fairy godmother show up with the millions to bail out disney from a bk when they lost money doing this? Disneyland is for everyone and we need to share it with all! - secretagentangel 669.9 #154 8:45PM
Just the new line procedure to keep the bad tickets screened out. - ShariRenee

Yeah, I just saw the story in the LA Times. I wonder how this will work when it's REALLY busy. - JustCantWait 794.3 #118 5:54AM
I read that they were doing entry different today to weed out fraudulent tickets and that's what was causing the back up. - Gia

Yes! This is the cause of the back up. And for some people, it catches them off guard...some don't have IDs with them...which they have to show with their paid ParkHopper ticket(s).
After I got stuck behind a woman who left ID at hotel, it took me several minutes to get thru the turnstile. - RadioMaverick 529.8 #216 1:57PM
