    I was very interested to see what dates for a single ticket would be labeled as value, regular or peak season. It appears that Saturdays are always peak season. I was really surprised to see that the first two weeks, excluding Saturdays, are considered Regular season. I thought it would be value season.

    I have to admit that I was dumbfounded at the price of Annual Passes at Disneyland. When you compare the WDW Platinum Plus price of $829 to the new rate for Disneyland's Signature Plus $1149 less the $20 DVC discount = $1129, thats a $300 difference.

    There are a lot more locals near Anaheim than Orlando, and Disneyland isn't as much of a destination as WDW. Disneyland generally has a much higher percentage of locals visiting than WDW does.

    So, they're trying to convince the "regulars" not to come on the extremely busy days, leaving it for the tourists.
    [WDW visits: DxL 1/98, VWL 1/03, WL 6/03, VWL 1/08, BWV 1/13, BCV 1/16, POFQ 4/17, BCV 1/19]
    [DL visits: 7/90, 11/93, 11/94, 11/95, 6/96, 11/96, 11/97, 11/99, 12/00, 8/01, 1/06, 2/08, 2/12, 6/14, VGC 7/16, DLH/VGC 1/17]

    Wonder if I could convince my boss to give me pay raises based on Disney's rate of inflation.

    Not all Saturdays are in peak season.

    Totally agree. I was in Orange County (CA) from 2000 to 2005 before relocating to Sacramento. I got my first annual pass in 2001 and for the 365-day pass, if I remember correctly, it was $349, and that included free parking at Mickey and Friends. Adjusted for inflation, that’s $486 in today’s dollars. I went all the time. Saturdays with friends in town, a Wednesday evening after work to buy a Christmas gift or check out the decorations, etc..

    I know there are quite a few people upset about the increased prices, but I think going to a Disney property more than once every 5 years or so is a creation of the last 15-20 years, at least for the West Coast. Although I was born in, and have never lived outside of, California, as a kid we lived about a 6 hour drive from Anaheim. Going to Disneyland was a rare treat. I went when I was 7, again when I was 16, and then for Grad Night when I was 18. And I think the ticket prices reflected that level of use.

    I’m turning 48 this year and if we don’t go to a Disney park once every 12-18 months, it seems off. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to pay more. Even with our DVC discount of the 7-day pass for the price of a 5-day we got in December, our upcoming WDW trip cost a pretty penny just for park tickets. And the more people pay, the better experience people want. I think Disney is looking for that sweet spot where people still come to the parks, just not as much.

    Here's hoping the DVC discount keeps 'up' with the ticket prices
