Do they think we are Goofy? Fans blow up Disneyland while the theme park AGAIN raises admission prices because tickets now reach $ 200 a day
- Disneyland day tickets now cost between $ 104 and $ 209 for visitors 10 years and older
- The increases have been canceled out by social media users, some of whom have threatened to boycott the theme park
- Disney stands by the price increase and says they offer ‘flexible choices’ and ‘the best value in no entertainment’
Disneyland has increased admission prices, which led to outrage on social media.
Anaheim, California theme park implemented the rate hikes on Tuesday – only 13 months after they last raised ticket prices.
The cost of a day pass can now bring visitors back more than $ 200 on certain days – a move that is not going well with members of the general public.
“Seriously @ Disney? Have you gone mad? I will never go to Disney Park again. $ 209 to stand in line and be with a million people in a small park? No thanks – think they don’t earn enough from the rest of the overpriced things, “a Twitter user said.
Another told the company that they “should be ashamed” of the price increase.
“This is outrageous. You would think that with the monopoly you have acquired, you would take more account of the people you would praise from the park, “they said.
However, not everyone was upset – mentioning that the increases helped to keep the crowds at bay.
Los Angeles Times recently reported that the waiting times for journeys have not been substantially reduced, despite an increase in ticket prices in recent years
‘This is basic economy and crowd control. The higher the price, the fewer people in the park. I hate to plan a trip to Disney and pay for my tickets and drive for two days and all to come to a park and hear that I can’t even get in because there are too many people, “the person wrote .
The cost of a one-day park pass for Disneyland now ranges from $ 104 to $ 154 depending on the day and time of the year.
The cheapest ticket of $ 104 only offers access on a low-demand day – such as a Tuesday or Wednesday in the relatively quiet month of March.
But the costs rise to $ 154 (up from $ 149) on ‘demanding days’, including most Saturdays and Sundays every month of the year.
Disney also offers a ‘park-hopper pass’ that allows visitors to switch between Disneyland and the adjacent California Adventure Park in one day.
2020 DISNEYLAND ENTRANCE PRICES FOR VISITORS AGE 10+
Day pass for one park: $ 104 – $ 154
One-day park hopper pass: $ 159- 209
Annual Premier Pass (access on any day of the year): $ 2199
Parking all day: $ 25
The cost of that pass on a ‘demanding day’ will now bring tourists back $ 209 – from $ 199.
It is the first time in the park’s 65-year history that a day pass has exceeded $ 200.
While many have slammed the price increases, Disney supports the increase.
“Visiting our parks is the best price in entertainment bars, and we offer flexible choices to enable families to choose what is best for them,” a spokesperson said The Los Angeles Times on Wednesday.
Theme park consultant John Gerner told the publication that Disney will soon learn whether or not visitors will be disabled due to yet another rate increase.
Despite price increases, visitors continue to go to Disneyland, with Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge now a popular attraction in the park
“They will start to see it in customer surveys. That is a sign that they have that [Disney] gone too far – if they went too far, “he said.
Despite earlier price increases for tickets, tourists seem unable to leave the famous theme park.
Los Angeles Times recently reported that the waiting times for journeys have not been significantly reduced.
But that could change now, according to the social media response. .
“I think Disney has reached a turning point: parking fees. It has just become too expensive for most people to justify, “one said.
