  • Money Talks

    Everyone says money can't buy happiness but can money buy "The Happiest Place on Earth"? Celebrities get VIP treatment, a personal escort, early admission and no waiting in lines. My question is, if you're not famous can you purchase that sort of treatment and if you can what would it include and how much do you think it would cost?

    Anybody can buy whatever they want. It's all for sale! I can't remember how much it is for an escort, but I recall being surprised that is was cheaper than I anticipated.

    I'm sure someone here knows and will be along to rescue us soon!

      It would cost a lot, and I think the reason the celebs get all the VIP stuff too is that Disney doesn't want to cause a scene, and have people flocking to whatever ride the celeb was going to next. It's a safety issue.

        That's a really good point actually.

        I don't know how much it'll cost though, but I'm certain you CAN get it.

          It was $70 per hour last time I booked a package for a client of mine.

            ^^^See, that's a price within reason, I think. If you needed to be discrete or if you only have a limited time in the park, it's a good deal.

                That price isn't too bad.

                  Go here: https://secure.disney.go.com/disneyl...=ContactUsPage

                  That's Disneyland's official "contact us" page. There are many ways that you can contact them...my personal suggestion, if your question isn't one that needs an immediate answer but it's okay to find out in a few days, just email them on that page.

                  As someone else previously posted, the option is there mostly so someone who is well-known by the public can actually enjoy their day like a normal human being (or as normal as they can get) with some privacy, and Disney doesn't want a huge commotion in the first place and, as a celebrity company themselves, understands these needs.


                  ...you might also be curious to know that, if you have the dough, you can actually rent out sections to the park all to yourself for a few hours or something. My father worked on a major t.v. series, and the leading lady treated to the cast, crew and their families a few hours at night to have complete domination of one of the lands in Disney's California Adventure

                        RUBBISH! That's way too much. I wouldn't pay a dollar over $69.99

                        Or $74.99 with what Zeus noew says...

                          It's $75 per hour per guide. In July, I had a party of 12 and we had 2 guides. It does not include early admission and you wait in lines, just with the guide. We did get to enter the park thru the exit instead of standing in the long lines for the front gate. The guide will go ahead for you and get Fastpasses while you wait in other lines, even park hopping to get them for youi. While we went on the Matterhorn, the guides went ahead of us and procured seating for Jedi academy. While at Jedi, she called Goofy's and lined up PS for 7pm for our large party after I had been told by Disney Dining 7pm wasn't available. She arranged seating for us at the Train station for fireworks.

                          Some celebrities will get to use the exits for entry if their standing in lines will cause problems. In this case it is not how much money, but safety that determines which line they use.

                          For us, it was money well spent and we plan on using the services again.
                          If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

                            Not all VIP's get front of line access, as Malcon10t pointed out. It depends upon how much of a celebrity the person is...so to speak. Most VIP tour groups do wait in line.

                              i read a whole essay once on social stratification in theme parks. the main point of the essay stated that a theme park is a place where once one enters, they are supposed to be treated the same, whether they're poor and this may be the only visit they make in their lifetime, or if they are an annual passholder. it argued that vip treatment and front of the line passes create class issues within theme parks. it didn't really get on disneyland and their vip services; it's main argument was against universal studios' front of the line pass.

                              just a thought ...
