DLR raises prices again

Monday, January 6, 2003 4:09 AM

This time tickets will cost $47 for Guests "10 and over", and $37 for guests "9 or under". It seems like they're afraid to use the world adult because a 10 year old isn't an adult.

But it gets better. So cal Residents get 2 tickets, one to DL, and one to DCA, for use in 2 consecutive days. Only DL on Monday, and then DCA and Tuesday.

All this is from mouseplanet.com, and knowing them, they may be lying.

I also hear parking may hit $10. For that price, I'll go to downtown disney and get valet parking. :

Btw, who reads Mouseplanet? Mouseinfo is where it's at! ;)

I read at Mouseplanet cause its so damn funny how much they hate Disneyland until they get a dose of reality from a KBF trip report. I agree though, laughingplace and mouseinfo are far better. I used to read mouseplanet every day but now laughing place is better. More DL hate articles can be found at miceage.com

I can't read Mouseplanet anymore either. It seems to me they spend a lot of time hating on the parks they're supposed to love.

But in any case, it's really not news that parks raise prices. I saw all over the wire services that BGW was raising prices. So what? Happens every year at every park.

Heard on the Orlando news that SWF was raising prices, but the station's website said nothing about it...figures that it would be a Busch-wide thing. The *odd* part is that the price hike happens while Busch is right in the middle of "consolidation" of their theme park business....or at the very least, a *non-expansion*...;)

Seems as if Magic Mountain will be the only park actually dropping general admission prices in So Cal in 2003... I've heard from administration at WestCoaster.net and Americacoasters.com that they will drop dramatically for the 2003 season. I'm really wondering...

Wow! $47 to see David Lee Roth? I didn't think he was still that popular. Oh well, rock on!

If you could just see the beauty... these things I could never describe. Pleasures and wayward distraction; is this my wonderful prize? --Joy Division

Speedy says:

If this is the same 2-fer $54 deal I took advantage of in November you *can* use the tickets to both parks on the same day, they just don't advertise it as such.


Sig under construction!

Quoted from mouseplanet.com:

SoCal Salute – The SoCal Salute ticket program also returns January 6, but rather than a price discount, residents of Southern California will get more for their $47/$37. They will get a ticket good for admission to both Disneyland and DCA. This ticket is not a park-hopper and is good for only one admission to each park (meaning you cannot go to Disneyland twice on separate days, nor to both Disneyland and DCA on the same day). Though the two admissions do not have to be used on consecutive days, the first admission must be on the same day as the ticket purchase, and the second must be used by May 16, 2003.

These tickets are non-transferrable. You must provide proof of residency at the time of purchase, and you will be asked to print your full name on the tickets. When you return for your second admission, you need to show ID matching the ticket. This offer is limited to 5 tickets per qualifying person.

Oops, I goofed again. You have roughly 3 months to go back and experience the other park, but your must make 2 seperate days to your visit. Come to think of it, this is probably the best deal they have offered in a long time besides those $99 so cal APs with about 110 block out days. Recent good deals have been disney days at Albertsons, where you buy coke products (and not just 1 bottle, we're talking a 12 pack) or disney juices, and you get a coupon for $35 admission. Thats what, 20% off? This is about 45% off of the previous ticket prices if you use that second ticket.

As for other parks lowering admission, SFMM is rumored to do so pretty soon, and KBF will always continue to sell extremely discounted tickets at Ralphs, Food for less, and Fry's food stores (for their AZ visitors), as well as the occasional Burger King or Del Taco coupons, or the very rare coca cola $16 ticket offer when the park closes early in October.

Hey KPJP I thought the same thing, David Lee Roth. Too bad he (bleep)ed up our chances for a true Van Halen reunion by sueing the band! :-(
