Disneyland breaks SoCal's $60 barrier
A day at Disneyland
or California Adventure
will cost you an extra four dollars, as Disney's raised the price of a one-day, one-park ticket at the Disneyland Resort
to $63. The price reestablishes Disneyland as the area's most expensive park, a "honor" that Six Flags Magic Mountain
had wrested away with its $59.99 list price.
(Though, to be honest, the next person who pays $59.99 to visit Magic Mountain for a day might be the first. Six Flags discounted heavily again this summer, offering one-day tickets on its website for just $39.)
SoCal residents, as usual, can get a discount to Disneyland. The current deal is five bucks off the one-day park-hopper (making it $78). As always, check your local auto club, credit union or school or work activities department for additional discounts, as well.
Is that more expensive than the FL parks? I really can't remember at the moment?
For THAT price, I could visit 2 parks, lol. Well, less really coz I have a SF Season pass sooo, I guess, if I lived there, it'd only cost me gas money & food. That's terrible, understandable but terrible. They only have the one park though right? Florida has all the others there? Seems like it'd be worth the price going to Florida park(s) instead.
I think the last price hike at WDW pushed the price for a one day one park ticket to about 63 dollars. Disney Land has two parks, where Florida has 4 and two waterparks...I think it would be beneficial to visit Florida, though you will pay more....but they have all kinds of discounts if you stay more than one day. Either way you'll pay alot...its disney, you have to spend lots of money to have family fun.
To get a perpective of 'life' in the Free West perhaps consider that British theme parks are roughly equivalent in £'s sterling to the US $.
They really don't expect many people to go for just 1 day. If you are local, they want you to wait until winter when you can buy "Buy DL, get DCA free" 2-day tickets. Or, if you're over $60, drop another $50 for the SoCal (off season only) AP.
And hence the reason I'm not going to Disneyland! Heh heh. Maybe everyone else can shrug it off and be like "Oh that's ok I still love the park," but personally, I don't think Disneyland is worth $63. I don't think ANY park is worth $63. If I'm gonna spend $63 just for the entry to a park, that damn place better have no less than 22 world-class coasters and at LEAST 6 really good flat rides! Does Disneyland meet these requirements? Nope.
I for one will be waiting for the 2fer to head out to Disneyland again.
All you belly-achers that are complaining about the price of DL, I'm sure wouldn't bat an eye to pay $100+ to see a 2 hour concert or pay $10-11 to see a 90-120 minute movie or pay $50+ to go to ANY sporting event.
I think when discussing theme park prices, it is all relative. For someone living in California or Florida, $63 may seem like alor of money, especially if you plan to visit multiple times a year. For the average tourist, that price is not too bad. However, how often does someone visiting actually pay that much to visit a park. Most will spring for hopper passes a pay less per day for the parks.
