So what about the premiere pass? Will that one only go up $20 in price as well? I'm planning a trip to wdw this July and was planning to upgrade my premium to a premiere pass.

Tagged in: NEWS  
A long time ago in a Galaxy far far away was a theme park called Disneyland. In the 1990s Disneyland had a major drop in regualr attendance to Disneyland and only offered one type of pass, a premium pass that was 150 then raised to 200 for only ONE park. Because of the declining attendance and lack of Annual Passholders flocking to the parks, mind you these were the days where the was no Rancho Santa Margarita, Irvine was still pretty much fields, no irvine spectrum, everything north of the 15, 91 was cows and no homes, you get what I'm saying they started to do promos and new pass levels to incite people to get to the parks more and even did such things as nighttime shopping passes during Christmas, then the famous 2fer tickets. Well Disney really thought that opening a second park would really boost attendance and be a big smash hit and we all know how that went for 10 years. They did everything they could to get people to come to the parks and created 99 dollar passes, get in free on your bday, give a day get a day, they had promos all year around esp for the locals to just get people in the door for a mediocre experience. From the time frame of 2000 to 2011 Disneyland opened two new attractions buzzlight year and Nemo which pretty much was a refurb of an old attraction. They actually had closed down restaurants in the parks, there were no major of any of the lands, two new parades no new stage shows, reduction in characters in the park and a new firework show for the 50th that they still use. Then you have DCA over that time frame..What happened over there, nothing at all for the most part, it was the same park that lacked in every possible category and the only entertainment they had was the Aladdin show and some street performers and the only thing that could draw locals was brining back ELP but as soon as that was over they left. .These were the final years for Eisner...Since 2010 here is what we have been given...Carsland, 3 attractions, two shows 5 characters. Buena Vista Street featuring two shows, street characters and the fab 5 and a 4 star dining experience, World of color, The Little Mermaid attraction, 3 atmosphere shows, daily live music at the paradise gardens, a refrub off all the entire area, Redwood creek also got a nice redo and updated to get rid of that Brother Bear movie that nobody has seen and replaced it with a Pixar hit of UP with a stage show....Then lets go over to Disneyland....Since 2010 we have a brand new Star Tours experience, new summer time firework show, Princess Fantasy fair, 6 daily character shows, a new parade that is actually very good, a brand new wonderful stage show Mickeys map, diferent celebrations each month for such things as Greek, Valentines, etc etc (BTW those wont be limited time magic next year they will be part of new traditions). Now that DCA is finally where they want it your going to start hearing about more new things unveiled this summer for Disneyland like the new Tomorowland and other things as well....Pretty much everyone was conditioned to pay a lower price for sub-par product and now you are getting 300% more band for your buck with all of the new things the parks have to offer Well now the parks are at a place where the demand to get in is at an all time high and its both parks. Not only are you locals wanting to come at record numbers but people are traveling from all over the world again to visit the parks because there is something here again that makes people want to visit. For fun and games, go look on the AP website and take the number of visits you have made in a year and divide it by the total price of your Annual pass, its pretty low for a lot of us who go a lot. For instance if I go 100 times a year its about 6.79 dollars a visit., not bad!! I know its not easy for a lot of us continue to get passes as it keeps increasing but you have to take a look at some of what I said. The demand out weighs the supply and increasing prices is the only way to cut back attendance and make your visits more enjoyable while at the same time they can keep coming up with new exciting shows and attractions that keep us coming back year after year and not leaving us with a stale product. I guess we should all be grateful that we live in Southern California and are surrounded by so many other things to do such as enjoy the beaches, the parks we have, the mountains, Knots, Magic Mountain, Sea World, the zoo the banana stand,...Ok I have writer cramp - Dave  13914.6 #9 10:54AM

We don't live in SoCal but if APs were cheaper we would have them every year. But they're not, which is a bummer on one hand but I feel lucky to be able to go to DL at all...I really do. Of course I wish APs were cheaper but it really is Supply/Demand just like you explained earlier. So to me it makes sense even though I'm not excited about it. I am impressed with this write up BTW, very thorough. 😊 - MinnieMousewife  928.2 #242 11:07AM
THISπŸ‘†!!!! Perfectly stated! Yes, increases are tough, but you get what you pay for. It is unfortunate that it will cause a strain for some...but remember that there are people who have NEVER experienced DL. Gas prices go up, food prices go up, car prices go's life! And yes to figure out your # of visits in one year. Then ask yourself "is it worth it". Consider how much you spend on movies, Starbucks, per year...when you add it all up, was it worth it? - Gia  802.2 #281 11:10AM

Very well stated. I'm okay with the price increase. It's still a great value for the amount of enjoyment we get from our passes. - vernswifevickie  400.5 #653 11:24AM
Exactly what I've been thinking. I know the high price is a bummer but there have also been so many special AP offerings- previews of new attractions, movie screenings, etc. it comes down to a decision of value to the indiviual person. Plus, if DL was not having fantastic attendance than the price wouldn't be what it is. It's supply and demand. Rather than complain just decide if it's worth it. If not, don't buy a pass. If it is, find a way to save the extra money from other places in your budget. Think of how much some people spend on Starbucks (or other coffee places) in a month and then a year. Cut out a couple trips there a week and you could pay for any pass you wanted. - LilSterner  5828.4 #26 11:42AM
"Like" x 1000. Hopefully this will keep the price increase from turning into a crab fest on here. - Linzee  2136.8 #92 11:56AM
I understand what you are saying. But not all of us live in Southern California. When I go, I have to pay for a hotel. I have to pay for food. We like to have a good time on vacation, so we have stayed at the DLR exclusively for every visit over the past 10 years. Carsland and all those other changes are wonderful, of course, but since we do not go every week like many of you locals, we don't get tired of things the way many of you might. I was never aware there were different fireworks shows, for example. It's all just fireworks to me. And we enjoy them. Same with parades. We like the parade, even if we aren't aware of what it is called. I think it's definitely a different park experience for those who go frequently and those of us who do not. Of course, a $20 or $30 increase isn't going to break us, it just would Have been nice if they had waited another year, especially after last year's huge increases. We had a good time this year. It was fun seeing all the new stuff, as well as all our old favorites. And Disney will certainly not go bankrupt without those of us who don't go back for a long while. There are always people there waiting to take our place. Supply and demand, as you say. I just miss the more affordable pass prices, as most of us do. - MacaronMerida  4739.9 #39 12:02PM
I agree with these comments. As long as the price increases help with the crowds, I think it makes sense. I do think the experience and in particular the AP experience has really improved over the years (it seems everyone else feels the same - hence the off the charts attendance levels). I feel very lucky and privileged to live in So. Cal. We will only take a hiatus for awhile as our little man turns 3 next year and it is tough to start paying for 4 passports vs. 3 passports! They're so little I feel like we can take a break for awhile and come back with renewed/increased excitement. Although I may go through withdrawal and change my mind. :) On another note, how do I edit the post - it appears my So Cal Select price was wrong and it went up by only $10 vs. $30, to $279 - sorry about that folks! - QueenMiranda  400.7 #652 12:08PM
and Dave - toph  2418.2 #75 12:10PM
I completely agree! Yeah, it's a mighty large chunk of change to get Premium Passes for our family of 5 but they are worth it and we always find a way to come up with the money every year. - Autoalice  161.4 #2706 12:24PM
I think also what a lot of people fail to understand is how a big company works like this. Disney as you know is spread out all over the place from Theme Parks,to cruise lines and to T.V, Movies, Music, Stores, it goes on and on. Well each of those some may say Departments are ran as their own companies and responsible for their own profits and losses within the umbrella of the entire company.It even goes a step further as each department within Disneyland is managed that way as well and has their own budgets and even though the attractions themselves dont have tickets or a cash register, there is a number that is associated per guest that visits that attraction in a day, how many guests go on within a day, so on and so.So for instance when a movie like John Carter which had a budget of 300 million tanks at the box office yes its going to affect the over all company but what is going to get hit hardest is that division of the company. Now that the parks are brining in more revenue it enables them to provide more and more for us as consumers for years to come. If they were just willy nilly raising prices and taking more and more away than you wouldnt see myself or a lot of others renewing. I think its a shame but what this is going to turn into is Disneyland being more of a once or twice a year event instead of a weekly thing but I think we will all be ok and find other fun things to do - Dave   13914.6 #9 12:29PM

Hahaha. Awesome Dave. Now I'm mad our post and conversation got removed last night. Haha. People.... Prices change, things get better. Disneyland is a luxury, NOT an entitlement! It is a company to make money. Yes they make out dreams come true, but the reason they cost so much is because they are the best! If it wasn't the best, you wouldn't pay those prices! (ie, knotts, sea world, long beach aquarium, magic mountain, universal studios). If you want cheaper go to those places. - sunshinegates  747.5 #316 2:05PM

After finishing my business class, I have seriously been thinking about doing that. - EmperorsHandLelundrial  1098.7 #206 2:26PM
Well it's nice to know that I'm not the only one who thinks the payment plan should be discontinued. Like others have said Disneyland is a luxury, not a right. Plain and simple: you can either afford it or you can't. It shouldn't be up to Disney to bend over backwards to make things cheaper just because you live nearby and have a big family and want visit every couple of weeks. If you can't afford the upfront cost of a pass, do what everyone else does...visit once a year. And make a nice big trip of it. - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #1175 2:01PM
Seriously? Disney has a brain and knows that the local ppl will come more often. Why not make it a way that makes it easier for them. So you're telling me that if you lived close, you wouldn't take advantage of the payment option? I can pay upfront if I wanted, but if I'm given this option, why not take advantage of it?! - caramiapooh  4488.7 #41 2:12PM
Disney DOES make it easy, it's called the payment plan. Lol! I live 20 minutes away, I have a Premier Pass and I visit about once every two weeks, sometimes more, and I pay for it upfront. I do that because I can AFFORD it. Why would I want to spend a year of my life being in debt to Disney? To me, one payment once a year = hassle free. - NotNKansasAnymor  283.8 #1175 2:21PM
Paying a few bucks a month is just an easier deal for most people. And with no interest charged, who wouldn't want to do it that way? I think it's a great option and hopefully they keep it! - MacaronMerida  4739.9 #39 2:30PM
I think you're assuming Disney wants the parks to be less crowded, which they might if there was no payment plan. If they did do away with payment plans, you can pretty much count on much larger increases to fill the void. - Gia  802.2 #281 2:34PM
I guess I better remember this when purchasing my next car or house...only get it if I can AFFORD it and pay it all upfront!!! 😜😜😜 - caramiapooh  4488.7 #41 2:37PM
@gia; I (as I said above) would be happy to pay more (a lot more) for an improved product. - georgieporgie  183.7 #2370 2:41PM
You're right Kansas! They should also cancel payment plans on cars, mortgages, year long apartment leases. All of them should be gone. Can't afford it up front, find something cheaper. 😏 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #231 5:13PM

Hi! Not sure if you have read the FAQs or anything, but have you checked with Admin regarding this? It is strongly encouraged that you do! Don't want you to get a bad rap for trying to do something nice. You never know what kind of people are out there. We appreciate your generosity and know there are a lot of MWers who would love to have the opportunity to go into Club 33. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2753.4 #64 8:03AM

I live about 40min away from Disneyland and can't make it every weekend but it is nice to be so close where I can go at least twice a month 😁

Alot of people who live in southern cali an that own passes can't even go every weekend. Now if they lived in Anaheim maybe. But there are a lot that live 100+ miles away and with Cali having increased gas prices it gets harder and harder to drive there. I am lucky if I get to go once a month. And we live 99 miles away. Also southern Cali is not all its cracked up to be. - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #356 8:45AM
And you have to realize that with higher gas prices and higher food prices and higher rent prices. And most people making min wage. Jus because people live here doesn't mean they get to go all the time. I know quite a few that have lived here their whole live and have never been to DL. I say ANYONE who gets to go to Disneyland I lucky regardless of where they live. - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #356 8:48AM
Seems like you've got something against living in California? - socaldad85  106.6 #3687 10:04AM
it costs us at the very least $50 a trip from san diego. grumble gas prices grumble. - OhanaPhoto  7105.4 #21 10:10AM
i love sd, wouldn't live anywhere else hehe :) - OhanaPhoto  7105.4 #21 10:11AM
I just think it's funny how people visiting from out of state (or anywhere else for that matter) think that because you live in SoCal you automatically live in Hollywood, and you are also right next door to Disneyland, Universal Studios, and LA. SoCal is actually a ginormous place! I am from Temecula and there's seriously /nothing/ attractive about that place, lol - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #255 12:54PM
What JR? You don't like the duck pond? πŸ˜‰ - HalfCaff  734.7 #324 1:25PM
I love SoCal! I grew up here. There's bad stuff everywhere if you want to find it. I wouldn't live anywhere else. - MyPark  1298.8 #163 1:30PM
If my family and my son's dad's family weren't in So Cal I would leave. The weather is wonderful as is the ability to be able to go to the mountains or the beach in less than an hour, but she has a point. California has a lot of problems but MW is not the place for me to lay them all out. :) - aidensmama  340.3 #808 1:48PM
No nothing against Cali. Lived here all but 6 years of my life. It's kinda like what JR said. Just because we are in so cal does not mean we all automatically get to go to Disney or live close to Hollywood. I was just trying to show the original poster that not everyone is able to go just because they live in SoCal. It is really expensive to live here compared to other states. So it is harder to go for some of the ones that do live here. That's why I said that ANYONE who is able to go is lucky to go. Regardless of what state they live in. - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #356 3:16PM
Yeah it is! I always tell out of state folks that, and they think I'm joking. People think it's some glamorous, star-studded luxury town...ha! No. - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #169 3:25PM
Exact ally mrs strawberry guy! I have been there twice in my whole 24 years of living in Cali an it was only this past year. Only reason was for the Disney soda fountain pins. - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #356 3:27PM
Trying to afford a decent house in Southern Cali is making me hate Southern Cali. - LaneSparrow316  847.0 #267 3:27PM
The only reason to go to Hollywood is to see a band perform or to have a wild night out. It's pretty nasty there but one could let loose while in Hollywood. - aidensmama  340.3 #808 3:29PM
Yup lanesparrow! I have a friend tht can only get approved for 200k. Ummm nothing is worth 200k in so cal! Unless you want to buy a shack. Lol - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #356 3:30PM
I feel very blessed to live in socal. I love it here, and do appreciate that I am so close to DLR. :) - tuesday737  1291.5 #166 1:28PM
I'm beyond grateful to be here in SoCal! I'm 10 mins from downtown and 30 mins from Disneyland. It takes me 60 mins to get to go snowboarding and still make it to the parks in the same day. I'm truly grateful for living here and I don't always go but I do go once a week, at minimum because traffic can be challenging but you're right I'm truly blessed to be here! - MarshaMouse  5058.1 #35 5:44PM
You would be incredibly blessed if you had a good baseball team..... Hi Marsha!!! - Slotherini  1079.8 #213 5:50PM

If u will go with me to the parks yes! - missaroura  162.2 #2692 9:38AM
Yes, I accept. When are we going? JK. Few years ago a friend surprised my wife and I with tickets to Disneyland and a wad of cash and babysat my kids so my wife and I can spend our 10 year anniversary at DL. Of course it was real hard to accept but they wouldn't take no for an answer. It was amazing and weird and awkward and exciting, but after a many hugs and tears and thank yous we went and had a great time. So you can either force them like my friend did or ask someone else -  1662.7 #125 10:57AM

Please refer to the rules and FAQ. Google pics are not quality content. Thanks! - PrincessKristin  780.8 #295 6:37AM
Don't hate on people that try to relate to u. This person obviously doesn't mean any harm - JoshnSandy  50.3 #5163 9:35AM
She's not hating, 80% of new users need to be pointed in the right direction, it's no biggie. - Linzee  2136.8 #92 9:37AM
If you think that is hating you need to stay indoors away from people at all times to protect those incredibly sensitive feelers ya got going on there. - madsdad  1868.2 #109 9:45AM
Please do not attack our MW members because they are instructing those who are not following the rules to read them. Google pics are not okay, ever. Thanks for playing. - Krissy Marissy  411.2 #630 10:10AM

I think everyone needs to read the rules and FAQ again. We should have a park meet up and go over them all together so everyone can get on the same page - justinschu4  39.3 #5717 10:28AM
