Disneyland Jacks Up Ticket Price For Local Residents

MickeyWalletEyeing.jpg
Attention, Anaheim visitors:

This time, the unsavory character eyeing your wallet isn't a local hoodlum or a hooker.

It's Mickey Mouse, and he's profit-hungry again.

Or, at least, Mickey's bosses at Disneyland want mo' money.

To celebrate the worst American economy since the Great Depression, Disneyland executives have raised the price of their special, seasonal Southern California residents' park pass by more than 37 percent. 

The two-day pass, available to locals during what has been traditionally slow park-attendance periods, now costs $99 per person. Last year, it cost $72.

Translation: For a family of four, just to enter the park will cost a whopping $411 after the $15 parking fee is included.

This pass allows users two trips on two different days to Disneyland or Disneyland California Adventure and can only be used through May 14. Park officials say the pass must by purchased by April 14.

Those locals who want to visit both parks on the same day can "upgrade" the pass for another $10 per ticket.

Disney reported more than $38 billion in revenue in the last fiscal year, according to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

A day at any of these parks is worth $35 a day. You end up spending more for food and other things inside. WTF!!!

I hope they tank!...or the the government take over and make it a TRULY REGULATED Public Company!!!

As of Spring/ Summer 2011 Disneyland tickets are now $80 for age 10 to adult and $74.00 3 to 9 years old. Just for one day one park.  10-adults cost $320 for family of 4 just to walk in the park. $15 parking, plus Food and souvenirs... you are looking at spending a good 650 for the whole day. That is so expensive. $_$

Disneyland never ceases to amaze the people. The theme park attractions and rides are unforgettable and loved by numerous kids and adults. I am sure that they raised the price for a reason

I agree they had boycott day for gas and prices went down a bit as well as when ever it went to high people found other methods of transportation to prove a point. If Disney saw how much money they would lose because few people attended in a single day, I think they will get the message to lower the price. I mean come on they act like they don't make billions of dollars a year on merchandise, dvd, movies, tv shows, etc that they would give the people who make them money a break.

These increases are meaningless. Any local who buys a ticket instead of a passport is a fool. Not only does the passport pay for itself in as little as two visits, it can also be paid for on a credit card in monthly increments without interest. The Disneyland passport, good for both Disneyland and California Adventure, is one of the best entertainment values in OC.

I agree. My wife and I both got the Premium Package with our taxes while our daughter was still free. We went every weekend and had a good time. Catch a show at the House of Blues, Drinks at the ESPN Zone. Karl Strauss inside California Adventure. After a few visits it pays for itself. But, I agree....Jacking up the price is something Disney doesnt HAVE to do, so there @$$E$ for doing it..

sioux- first of all, if u every had to wait in line in disneyland behind a huge family of illegals speaking spanish while their brats climb all over the place, and while their teen age kids throw the f-bomb every 5 minutes, then maybe u can understand why disneyland, like the rest of oc is going down the brown toilet...btw, "horried" is not a word.. im guessing you meant horrid? are u mexican,bc u spell like one

Messicans - I actually love hearing comments from RACISTS like you making ignorant comments. First, based on your inability to write in English properly, it surprises me that you would not be embarrassed to try to correct Sioux's comments. Second, lets be honest, you are just jealous because some Mexicans, like me, can afford to go to Disneyland, while you have to stay at home and resort to name calling on anonymous blogs online.

Instead of your continued jealousy and hatred, try focusing your time and effort into educating yourself, and maybe, just maybe, one day, you too can afford to go. Hell, I'll buy you little Mickey ears if it will make you happy.

My God...you are a fucking pathetic, disgusting racist.

By the way, if you're going to take shots at people based on their command of the English language, perhaps you might consider using proper grammar and not forming your sentences like you're posting on twitter, you fucking dullard.

Disney is catering to all the rich Asians who overwhelm Disneyland, that's all you see there! I'm not racist, it's just reality. and Disney does'nt care, as long as the unemployed RICH have a place to hang out. As a American born I work way to hard to spend my hard earned money in a expensive overcrowed themepark. Bottom line: if you could barely afford it, then you are not welcomed.

You couldn't be farther from the truth. Take a good hard look at the majority of people walking around DL, it's not Asians.

DISNEYLAND IS CATERING TO THE 'CREAM OF THE CROP' RESIDENTS OF SOCAL.

ITS NO LONGER FOR THE AVERAGE JOE SCHMO...

IN A FEW YEARS, ONLY THE WEALTHY WOULD BE ABLE TO ENJOY DISNELAND & THEME PARKS SUCH AS THESE...

SHAME...

dont get mad, just DONT GO!! Disneyland is not a right its a privelege (apparently) and as long as we keep on paying up they will keep on raising the fees. If we dont go they will have to lower prices. with all the other horrible shit going on in the world and in our local communities, we shld really save the outrage for worthwhile news.

Wow! Who knew Moxley was a dyed-in-the-wool, red-star-beret wearing, Communist? Do you and Gus go to Commie party meetings together?

And to the rest of you losers, going to Disneyland is not a right. You must earn your way there. Get back to work and stop wasting time on the OCW.

My kids have been saving to go to Disneyland... how CRUEL of Disney to do this!! Money is so tight right now... they should have lowered the price to get more people into the park... we won't be going anytime soon. My youngest asked just this morning if we were ever going to go to Disneyland... I said, "I don't know". I have a more definite answer now! :( DREAM KILLER DISNEY!!! Walt would be so disappointed~

I heard that the reason they keep increasing the price is because people say that the price is satisfactory on the customer surveys. People need to start saying NO.
