Everyone keeps saying that the increases are made to keep the crowds down.  Even with the large price increases every year or two it is becoming more crowded. I don't think it is working if that is there goal. I'm nervous that with the closures over the next year or two and then the opening of the Star Wars area it is going to get worse. I don't know what the answer is but raising the prices   More...

As someone who doesn't live in SoCal and uses my AP only a couple or a few times a year, the increase really doesn't bother me at all. I have a Premium AP. The current cost of that pass was $779. New Signature Pass is $849 and it includes free PhotoPass access. This is actually a better deal than what I currently have for me. (I did just renew my Premium for $719, so I won't be getting the new pass, anyway.). Not everyone lives locally and can be at the parks 200 days each year. I have never gone during the Christmas break because, frankly, the crowds have scared me off. That is why we do thanksgiving when we want the holiday vibe. Don't the holidays begin around November 11th each year?  So that is about two months' worth of holidays for those who wish to enjoy that time.  If I were to renew my pass next year, I would simply get the Signature pass. I don't need the highest level just for two weeks at Christmas. I understand those who aren't happy. But, I do think it doesn't have to be as horrible as everyone is making it out to be. Disney is a business. They are in the business of making money, right along with letting you make memories. The new normal for some may have to be to see Disneyland as the treat that it is for much of the country or world who does not have it in their backyard. Hopefully, our lives are full of so many things. Disney is one part of it. It shouldn't be everything. Not trying to tick anyone off here. I do think their timing stinks with this. But, just wanted to show  that there is another perspective and way of looking at this. 😊 - MeridaFan  4114.7 #33 10:51AM
Yes this makes sense but for people who live in So Cal I fell the photo pass should be an option because I really never use it.  - AlyssaDisneyland  51.6 #0 10:54AM
AP prices have gone up every year. SoCal people have had the choice of two APs that no one in the rest of the world have been able to purchase. It is not a necessity for people to buy the most expensive pass for themselves.  So you do have other options that others do not. They also have given special discounted tickets to SoCal people throughout the year. I think those are great options for those who live down there and cannot afford the more expensive passes. Again? This is another viewpoint. And I realize there is only one SoCal pass available now. And I have no idea if they will continue with the other one indefinitely. Just trying to point out that there are actually some positives for some people here. Tourists bring in a lot of money to Disney. Lots of us enjoy using the Photo Pass system.  - MeridaFan  4114.7 #33 11:03AM
MeridaFan - pikarich  4990.0 #23 11:07AM
Correction I go 201 times - pikarich  4990.0 #23 11:09AM
I could not agree more, MeridaFan.  Also, it doesn't have to be all or nothing!  I understand the AP price is high, but that doesn't mean people have to swear off Disney forever.  Some people would kill to go just once a year. - Thumper13  489.1 #418 11:11AM
MeridaFan...I agree with you. We live in Oregon and, although we're not happy about the increase, we see why it was needed. I would have liked to know ahead of time, though. We still think you get your money's worth of quality, family entertainment. And if some of this increase goes to pay cast members and adds more jobs for new cast members and Star Wars Land for everyone I'm all for it. That said...we don't have young kids at home anymore and don't have to pay for them, along with all the extras while in the park. I can definitely see and agree with both sides. You have to make the best decision for your own family.  - GrandCircleTour  362.1 #616 11:26AM
We have 2 AP holders who renewed and upgraded to Deluxe in June, so they will probably need to rethink their budgets for the next time. We are having issues with budget and rooms right now... Does anyone know why there can't be a 6th person in a hotel room at the resort for a standard or premium room like Woods/Courtyard at the Grand Californian? We are wanting to be a group of 6 adults and a second room for just one additional person just seems excessive! (I think room occupancy max is 5 people?.) Mom has her heart set on the Grand, but we'd only be staying the one night with Disneyland potentially open until 12am, so only about 6-8 hours of sleep. We'll get a great AP discount, but trying to convince everyone to pay isn't easily justified for everyone! Any ideas would be appreciated. TIA! 😁😻 - Catski23  15.5 #8156 11:46AM

it has been nonstop peak crowds this year, no abating like in the past, no off season days. Anaheim is not passing anything on to sc residents. I vote and live in anaheim. The council took a loss with the gate tax. Disney is using some of the money to fund the new star wars, land purchases, new high rise parking structure, and since they can get the money, they are trying to reducee peak crowds. So do your homework and know the facts. I have lived in anaheim for 54 years in the shadow of the park. Its a private business and they are doing what they need to do. The “our park” mentality is changing. Our streets are so congested with cars it takes me 45 min to an hour to drive 6 miles to my job in santa ana. I have not used the gridlock freeways for the last 5 years, it seems that everyone that left CA has come back all at once. I hope price increases will slow down the crowds but I doubt that. Disney must have great actuaries. - Plumiegirl  9813.5 #7 11:30PM
I just genuinely wish they had a kids AP, it just doesn't seem right that my 3 yo will be paying the same ticket price and can't go on anything other than Fantasyland rides.  - bellapistola  158.4 #2561 1:30AM

I was just thinking this. With a baby on the way it just seems funny that I will have to buy an annual pass for them at 3. Really what is the difference between 2-3. They are still restricted to the same attractions.  - DisneyBride°O°  448.9 #470 10:06AM
Excellent point!  My boys were about 6-7 years old when they started going on enough rides to make the price worth it. - DisneyPiratePrincess  224.0 #1658 10:34AM

Maybe it would be better if the age was raised? Instead of 3 to 9, maybe make it 4-10? Or by height? 40" and up need tickets?  - Arielkitten13  233.9 #1533 9:09AM

As a 10+ year Premium Passholder this increase won't detour our family from buying our passes. It only makes us want to visit more often, being our pass has passed the $1K ceiling. Anyone else feel the same?  - snappy  415.4 #517 4:34PM

we have stayed at most on harbor blvd and they are all really the same to us. BW park place inn is the closest and pretty good. Tropicana has been good also and a little cheaper. Fairfield has nice beds and a little bigger rooms but get on main floor so you don't have to wait for elevators. A little further away, also. Desert inn has nice suites if you need more space. Del sol is cheaper but we ha  More...

What is too much $ to one person isn't to another. We like Parkvue Inn because it's directly across the street & includes free breakfast & free parking. The rooms just completed a remodel last year. They average about $160 a night  - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1859.6 #89 6:46PM

FoolishMortal138 I've never stayed at Best Western right next door, their rooms are similarly priced but they charge for parking. At the end of the day if getting back quickly is a priority I'd look at Parkvue & BW but we like Parkvue - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1859.6 #89 7:36PM

"When a child is apart, even for a little while, a parent says a prayer. We ask the Lord to be where we cannot be, to go where we cannot go. In Him we place our trust, for He sees, He knows. Though how your heart must break, parted for now from your little one, know that the Lord keeps your little one safe, with Him, where we all belong. He will keep your child in a loving embrace, just as He keeps you, a child, too. That is His answer to a parent's prayer, that is His love...forever, everywhere."
