Frankly I'm glad that some of you are so determined never to go to Disney
-- makes it less crowded when we go. Disneyworld in Orlando, lodging at The
Yacht & Beach Club, in November -- BEST VACATION EVER!!!
Legalized robbery? No way. It is called free enterprise, based on supply and
demand. Disney can charge a million dollars for a single day at the park if they
want, and nobody -- not you, not me, not the feds -- should be able to stop
them. What will stop them? Nobody will go. If their price is too high for you,
then don't go. At $100+ per person per day, my wife and I and my 7 kids
won't be going there any time soon.
No one is forced to go there, so I'm not sure where the "legalized
robbery" comment comes from. Considering that Utah is a red state that
generally supports unregulated free market capitalism, no one should be
complaining when a business exercises their right to set their prices as they
choose. It costs a fortune to build huge theme parks and a fortune to run them.
It's been a long time since we could just buy a book of tickets for three
dollars and spend the day in the park.
If the new initiatives at Disney such as the smart wristband fast passes and
scheduling attractions before you even show up, enable us to get four days worth
of fun into three, an extra ten bucks is more than worth it.Like
Cornbellys at thanksgiving point, you feel like someone has gone to a great deal
of effort to provide a wholesome, high-quality, memorable experience for your
family.I wish Disney cost less, but that also goes for Hawaii,
Europe and a lot of other memorable places.I find I feel a whole lot
better spending a bit more for value when I'm also invested in the company.
Hopefully companies that provide value continue to do well.
to RedYou are spot on about Uncle Walt's kingdom. There is a
alot of hype associated w/ Moab too. That said, the happiest place
on earth is on I-15 roughly 1/2 way between SLC & LA.
Incredible . . there apparently isn't a topic that "lost in DC"
can't politicize. Hysterical.We just got back from the
Disneyworld/Universal curcuit with my family of 6 and 20 other sisters, brothers
and cousins. Totally worth it. Yes, it was expensive, but all I ask is that if I
voluntarily pay for admission to your park, you provide a clean, friendly,
enjoyable environment and working rides. Disney and Universal both passed that
test. Lines were well-managed. Bring your own lunch in and save a bunch on
lunch. It's not that difficult. Lagoon??? Forgive me, but HAR!!
I like Lagoon just fine, but to compare it to Disneyworld is just laughable.
Hey, if it isn't your thing, fine; don't go. Nothing's for
everyone. I don't pretend to get the "legalized robbery" comment. I
knew what I was paying and what I was promised. Both Disney and Unviersal
delivered what they promised. That's all anyone can ask of a company.
Moab is not free. It costs us 54 cents a mile to operate our automobile.
Depending on how far you travel to get to Moab, the cost is more than
Keep your 'happy' place on earth...I won't be spending that kind
of money to frankly to bored to death. Disneyland hasn't changed in years.
One or two new attractions just doesn't warrant the price for admission. If
everyone boycotted the park, the great and powerful Disney will have to rethink
watch, soon BO and the dems WILL declare attendance at a Disney park a right to
paid by the taxpayers for those who cannot afford it, and you will be FORCED to
pay for it if you can afford it. (but only because the Disney folk are big
contributors to the dems)
Well, the one thing you don't want to do - buy single day pass which is way
too expensive. Yep, food are expensive too. What I don't understand why 10
year old consider as an adult and they should be if they are 14 and older.
Disneycruise want to charge my 12 year old as an adult to some exersion which
was shocking but we found a way to get a cheaper cost from the private sectors
by half price or more including to adults. Go for 3 days pass than a single day.
My wife and I buy single plate meal at the park and we are happy and full. Happy
We lived in So. Cal. for a couple of years and bought an annual pass for our
family of then 5 for about $700. That was definitely worth the expense because
we could go on Friday night for a couple of hours and call it good. I would
never though now spend that much for a one day marathon at Disney. I agree with
Red. Explore the world - see Moab - lake Powell - Zions and more. It sure beats
the awful crowds and the manufactured "fun" crammed into one day or a
few. Disneyland is picturesque of the glut of America. DisneyMom - maybe you
haven't been listening to hear the concern of fuel and groceries. Yes, we
are all free to choose where we spend our money. If you like Disneyland then go
Just like Magic, Moab is still free!!!And about 100 times better.
Don't buy into the hype that Disneyland is some sort of right
of passage. They want you to believe that. Your kids are going to be just fine
if they don't go.
I don't hear everyone complaining when fuel or grocery costs increase. In
my opinion you still get your money's worth at Disneyland. Going to
Disneyland is not an entitlement. There are several places I would love to go
in this big world which are not in my budget. If Disneyland doesn't fit in
your savings plan then find somewhere else to go! (Lagoon is not even an option
in my book.)
OK, just cancel the plan to go to Disney World this summer.
Just like magic, we won't be going to Disney theme parks anymore. Thanks
Disney for the outrageous new park prices, super duper lines for rides and extra
high priced food.Hello Lagoon...
