Dynamic pricing comes to Major League Baseball

Thought this was interesting because it's kind of a twofer.

1. SeaWorld San Diego has started doing the Quick Queue thing. (more parks jump on the VQ each season)

2. If you look at the info it mentions that pricing and availability are seasonal.

I immediately thought of this thread and figured I'd share. :)

I wonder how they define seasonal? Is a floating-price upgrade less offensive than a floating-price gate ticket?

Speaking of seasonal prices for upgrades, Universal has been doing this for their a la carte pay-to-cut product for several years now.

^^Just to be clear about QuickQueue - as I understand, it amounts to one walk-up ride through the exit on each major attraction. That is to say, it's not your normal VQ situation.

The SeaWorld San Diego page says:

"Quick Queue allows you unlimited single-day access to the express entrance at Journey To Atlantis, Wild Arctic and Shipwreck Rapids...In addition, your Quick Queue ticket allows you one complimentary ride on both the Skyride and the Skytower."

Looks like they're expanding it.

That's Universal's deal, too.

I found this to be interesting and on the track towards price changes people have been talking about. Cedar Point is offering a discounted “mid-weeksaver ticket” good on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for just $29.99.These tickets must be used by Thursday, June 11th

And, while we are on the topic of semi-related stuff having to do with differential pricing and service:

DRC Cast Members at WDW claim to have been trained on a new dining reservation system---the system takes into account where you are staying (onsite or off, class of resort if onsite, whether you are a DVC owner, and whether you are using a discount program) and sets aside tables in different tiers. DVC owners and those staying in big-bucks resorts have more tables available. Interestingly, it is also reported that if you claim to be using the discount card (20% off your bill) you have fewer tables you can reserve. And so on.

Naturally, the "free dining" people are apoplectic, and the DVC owners are quietly smug. Discuss

So Disney would prefer to have people spending money in their restaurants?

Go figure. :)
