How much would you pay to get inside Walt's Disneyland apartment?

What's the most expensive Disney theme park ticket ever?

I don't know the answer, but we have a new candidate for that honor(?). Disneyland is offering its Annual Passholders the chance to buy admission to a special Candlelight Processional event.

For $2,500. (And if you didn't get the invitation email, apparently, you're not invited.)

Okay, it's not just to see the processional, which anyone with a Disneyland admission can stake out a place to watch. This ticket's actually a two-person package that includes (among other perks) reserved seating at the processional, a reception at the Grand Californian hotel, one night's stay at the Grand Californian and breakfast in the park the next morning, followed by a guided tour of the park with Disney Legends, such as Bob Gurr.

You'll even get the chance to visit inside Walt's Main Street apartment.

I know more than a few Disney fans who would cough up the two grand just for the chance to get inside the apartment, so they might see the rest of the package as gravy. Clearly, this is one of those "special experiences" that Disney Parks chairman Tom Staggs talked about at D23 last summer.

But will people go for it? Would you?

Most definitely! Who is the narrator this year?

Um, no.

Nope. It doesn't mean much to me. I'll stick to the videos of it. $2500 is too much just to visit a place for a short time that doesn't really interest me.

If I had the disposible income I would

2 days for $2500. This is clearly Champagne and Caviar dreams, but it is clearly for the less rich since the rich will have opportunities to see it for free. Will Johnny Depp or James Cameron have to pay to see it? I don't think so.

No. With $2500, you could take a week's vacation to pretty much anywhere in the world.

I would pay $18.95 and not a penny more...

I got to go inside Walt's secret appartment in the Epic Mickey Wii game. I'm good.

I'm more interested in the guided tour of the park with Disney Legends. That plus the apartment would make it worth it for me if I had that kind of money laying around.

Was inside Walt's apartment for free when I was a cast member.

If I had tons of money...heck yeah! But alas I have champagne dreams on a beer budget.
From Marc Ricketts on November 18, 2011 at 11:33 PM
I'd pay for that Walk in Walt's Footsteps Tour for a peak inside, but not 2500.
From Gary Knackstedt on November 19, 2011 at 1:22 PM
I would pay an extra $25 to see the inside the apartment but on a retired school teacher's income, I think I will pass on this package.
