Disney is raising ticket prices AGAIN.

A one-day, one-park ticket will go as high as $159 on the busiest days of the year.

Guess that's it for me and Disney, especially when you combine the insane prices with the disgusting amount of data mining the park does via the magic bands: It truly is 1984 meets Brave New World.

Here's a video which lays out the basics of how Disney tracks its customers. Creepy stuff.

Sad, uncultured adults who are obsessed with Disney and want to spend their vacation in some tacky consumerist hellhole r2.

Disney World is now only for the Haves. As much as I know that socialism is a fraud and will always fail, I can see how it is going to becoming more enticing as more things are priced beyond the means of working people.

OP - poor

I am indeed, R6. I'm also old enough to remember when a ticket to Disney was under $20 (late 70s/early 80s). Hell, even in the 90s prices hovered in the $30-$40 dollar range. Even factoring in for inflation, the current ticket prices are ridiculous.

The sad part is that there are parents who go into debt to be able to bring their kids to Disney.

Disney ticket prices, 1971-2014

Using an inflation calculator, that $3.50 park ticket from 1971 would be the equivalent of $21.84 today. I realize the parks have more going on now and don't use ride tickets as they did back then, but even that $44 ticket from 20 years ago should be $66.76 now. To charge $159 for a ticket is just gouging.

People should just stop going, they got rid of the Haunted House.

I have no desire to go to this wretched place. Even as a child I thought people were idiots for acting like the characters were real when they were obviously just people in costumes.

Disney reminds me of what my mother told me about taking a cruise--every single moment you are there is a money hustle. Forget the big $$ you pony up just to walk in the door: That is only the beginning. After that, they don't want to let you go home until they've shaken every nickel out of your pockets. Disgusting.

I'm French and I'm always astounded at those HFCS-fed American families who fly all across the Atlantic to visit "Europe", pop over to the Eiffel Tower for a quick ride up the first floor and then rush like there's no tomorrow to Disneyland Paris and spend the whole extended weekend at the resort before rushing back to the airport and jumping in another plane to London.

"Ah we loved Paris, the Eiffel tower, so romantic!"

They like the simplicity of it. They don't have to think or anything. It's no different than the people who visit the Caribbean by hopping off a boat for a few hours.

I don't understand the childless adults who get annual passes and go over and over again. The world is a large place, go explore elsewhere.

Overpriced rat!

by Anonymousreply 1703/14/2019

You know you have a successful business model if raising prices is more about keeping people away rather than making more money.

OP: For $159 you could have a memorable meal in a Michelin-starred restaurant in LA, so why not be a big boy and do that instead?

OH MY GOD I know so many gay men who consider themselves culturally astute and whatever, but they go to Disney all the time.

One of them proudly posted about how they had visited every park. Who the fuck knew there was more than one in Asia.

I have mixed feelings on kids going. We were poor, I went once with my marching band. I think it would have been fun once or twice, but not every year as a kid.

I think it's so bizarre to see a grown childless successful gay man at a character breakfast.

$159 is not that bad. You'd pay more for decent seats at most concerts and Broadway shows.

Yeah -- they're pricing out the poors.

R22 so they're trying to keep out people like this?

Did that woman name her tits and have the names tattooed on so she wouldn't forget?

Actually r26, I think we had a thread on her at the time the photo was released, and that was one suggestion.

Never been and I don't give a shit. It's like the subway in NYC. How high are they gonna go? It's so absurd. I am so happy to be who I am. All this shit could go up in flames and I would still be able to live happily.

This became less a thread about Disney parks’ prices and more about practicing free association.

It costs that much to keep out the brown people.

I’d gladly take their money if they had any to spend.
