Considering the large ticket price increase, I would think the best thing they could do to soften the blow would be to offer some free tickets with a certain number of hotel nights, or to continue with what has been working somewhat so far, with the free dining options or free extra nights.On the west coast, I would think they might go back and offer some cheap SoCal Resident one day or even a cheap SoCal Resident season pass option, since such a signifigant ammount of traffic to the Disneyland Resort parks are simply day trippers.

Anyway, the 7-for-4 is a good value as it would allow my family to stay on site at a deluxe resort for essentially the same price as a moderate cost us in the good old days. And a week at the Beach Club sounds real nice right now....
As for Disneyland, I will probably hold out for a visit in 2011 or 2012 when Cars Land is complete. As much as I would love to visit my old stomping grounds (I grew up in Simi Valley), it is such an expensive trip that I just can't see making it until most all of the DCA refurb work is complete. Still, the 5-for-3 would probably get me the most bang for my travel dollar.
Anyway, get well soon, Robert, and have fun on Kraken and Manta!
I voted to pay 4 get 7 days at WDW.(I'd take the free food on top of that!)
Didn't I see something on the news yesterday about an annual pass deal at WDW?
As for Disney World, I'd need to buy the 4 get 3 days free in order to go. I'm only planning on staying 7 days there next year as I haven't been back since 97.
A lot of people go for the free dining plan or the hotel deals, but I can eat and sleep inexpensively with a little effort. Using the DIS boards to rent a DVC 2-bedroom suite for our upcoming trip saved us over $1000, and the suite's kitchen allows us to make many of our meals.
I never, however, find great deals on airfare.
Disneyland is in the Los Angeles/Southern Cal area.
WDW is in the Orlando/Central FL area.
Job Market sucks in Florida therefore people are not going to spend money on WDW.
we have visted florida 5 times in past 2 years and am now currently counting down the days till our first trip to disneyland ! so i suppose these offers dont really make to much differance to us, they all seem much more intended for the american's, where the uk is suffering just as much in the down turn, doesnt help that only the most exspensive airlines & travel agents are still going so from our first trip to now on top of the hickes in fuel etc we have to go by the most exspensive operates, so disney needs to be able to help lower your vacation cost more than the food when you arrive, to be honest that just comes out of spending money and goes unnoticed.... unlike the holiday payments !
I also answered 'None' for DL, mostly because of military discount again. However, my husband told me this week that next year, we can have our big vacation out there - and this will be my first time going to DL and California. So, discount or not - we're going and I'll do my best research to get the best deal possible for our family and base our entire trip from that. The planning/research will be a welcome distraction for me, since I'll be deployed to Afghanistan for the first half of 2010. :)
