Disneyland–The Happiest Place on Earth, if someone else is paying–is raising their prices again!!! That’s right folks! I was at Disneyland tonight, walking through the park at a special Season
Pass Holder inclusive event when I noticed a number of rolling booths set up asking people if they wanted to renew their season passes or buy passes.
I took the opportunity to speak with the employees and to get clarification on some information. From what I gathered is on Friday, Disneyland pass prices will be INCREASING! I wasn’t able to get a
firm price increase, but I was told they would be increasing anywhere from $20-$60! Not to mention the Disney rumor mill has said some passes as much as 30%!!!
Disney Season passes already range from $199 (lots of blackout dates) to the Premium $499 (No backout dates and Free Parking) which are HUNDREDS more than the $65-$90 Six flags, Knotts Berry Farms,
and Universal Studios charge, however Disneyland DOESN’T want your business! That’s right, it’s WELL known that Disneyland is overfilled with people and that TO many people have season passes. So
to fight this, again Disney is raising their prices hoping that not as many people will renew.
HOWEVER, despite these price increases know this. If you renew NOW, before Friday, Disneyland will tack on 12 more months to your pass (from date of expiration). Which means, my pass which expires
on 9/12/12, was extended to 9/12/13! Furthermore, because I renewed inside the park, Disneyland gave me $20 off, bringing my price down to $470 for the year!
Now, Now I know that sounds crazy, but know this: A 1 day park hopper pass is $105 and parking is an additional $15. If I got only 4 times, I’ve paid for my pass! Also season pass holders get to
attend a number of special events throughout the year (Tonight they did a special showing of Fantastic at 1130 and left select rides open from 10pm to 1am even though the park closed at 10pm for
the general public). If that’s not enough, enjoy 10% off food throughout the park and restaurants in Downtown Disney! Other discounts include 10-20% off merchandise and select discount on hotels
and vacation packages! You can find them all on the Annual Passport page.
