    It’s $90 for a whole days worth of entertainment. People spend a lot more than that for a 2 hour concert by a crappy band.

    You don’t appreciate what an unbelievable bargain Disneyland is until you have season passes and can really take it all in leisurely. It’s an amazing value and an amazing place.

    Last time I was there was the week of 9/11/01. We were supposed to fly to London the night of 9/11, and when they canceled all flights, our travel agent got all our money back and we drove from PA to Orlando the next day. It was our first vacation since our honeymoon, so we were going to do something. Nobody there all week except a few stranded British and Australian tourists, so no lines in any of the parks.
    I thought it was pretty expensive back then. True, if you don’t want to pay for it, don’t go. It’s a luxury, not a right. They can charge whatever they like. This really only affects the day visitors. There are plenty of packaged deals that work out a lot less than the daily admission price if you ask a travel agent or go on their website. They do gouge you on the food, however.

    I find myself agreeing with others. If you don’t like the price…don’t go

    If you do go, hire a disabled guide so you will be first in line.

    Simple solution: go once and never again as the rides change somewhat once a generation anyway.

    Decades ago, a relative worked for Disney in accounting. He said that Disney uses park rates to regulate attendance. Still doing so, I see.

    “…Disney uses park rates to regulate attendance…” They tried using a ‘full’ limit. Turning away people did not work out well. You now can get ‘appointments’ for rides. People that plan ahead and buy packages get more value for their $$$.

    I agree; package prices can be helpful. Also, Florida residents can get reduced prices. You cannot possibly find that much variety of entertainment for the price, and you cannot possibly see it all unless you have several days, even if you move quickly. The people are friendly, and the place is kept spotless.

    Personally, though, I think Walt had a secret dislike for children. What happens when a 3-year-old comes face-to-face with a six-foot-tall rat? I think he secretly chuckled all the way to the bank….

    @I Play One On TV

    When I was young and had a young family I used to take my family to Disneyland in California at least twice each year because it was affordable for even a family. Now, if I wished to do so again, the overall cost would be at least $1,000. I can buy a whole lot more entertainment in either dvd’s or kindle books (yes, I can be totally entertained by actually reading books, imagine that if you will). I can use my computer for programming games in such a language as Python for almost nothing (especially with such an operating system as Linux). I can also make and paint models for very little. And all of these things I can do again and again all the year long for far less money (and even have my current children and grand children join in also). Heck, I can even play board and role playing games with my grand children for next to nothing also. So, the heck with Disney and its currently high prices, it is no longer even good for entertainment, and it certainly is not a bargain. And if my family and I wish to actually go somewhere interesting, there are truly excellent museums and one of the greatest planetariums in the world relatively close by that are fully accessible by good public transportation at very reasonable costs.


    So, to the ultra conservatives on this site that keep saying “then do not go there” I can actually say that I fully agree with them this time around. After all, why should I feed the kind of corporate greed that even the original Walt Disney would be disgusted with!!!

    Do they still run that “futuristic” monorail train at EPCOT? It was already outdated when i went there in 94 or so…

    Epcot was $96 a pop when we went two years ago! Only went because we were meeting my sister and her daughters and granddaughters there while we were in Florida for my mom’s 99th birthday. Epcot’s an even bigger ripoff than Disneyland or Disneyworld (the ride part).


    BTW, Disney Corp. has been trying for years to run the NPS and Forest Service, and get them to increase prices for use of public lands for recreation. Of course, they’re all for taking all fees off for oil and gas development, mining, or timber harvest.
