  • [Question] Price of Gas Cut into your Trips to DLand? APers

    Has the price of gas cut into your trips to the Happiest Place on Earth? For myself it hasn't altered our visits, but with gas getting up there it has to be playing a factor for some families? Experts are saying we're headed to $200.00 a barrel within a few months! ($6.00 a gallon)

    It's in the back of my mind, definitely, but it's something I'm willing to spend money on, so it really hasn't stopped me yet. I can imagine it's going to have to have some impact for sure though. Reports say people are driving 10% less and it's been noticeable on the freeways of LA so I would guess that will have some negative effect on DL. Of course their could be an offset by people who decide to drive to DL rather than take longer car trips this summer.

You know…the Mickey in us.

      yes, we used to go about once a month...now we go about every other month...I'm not sure if that is just gas related though. i also have a very hectic schedule and it's difficult to make time for DL, but I do consider if I want to spend $20.00 to get down there and back.

          Yes. I will be down over Father's Day Weekend, maybe a day trip in August then that will most likely be it until December. I most likely won't ever make it to the big Gay Days weekend this year. I will renew my AP in October, but my trips will certainly be more spread out. It cost me almost $50 to fill up my car the last time.... And with a 2.5 hour drive one way....

            Gas prices really aren't a big factor in my DL visits!!! The good thing is that i have a small car that is pretty good on gas!!! If i factored gas prices into everything i do, i guess i would never go out!! It's hard but it's worth the car trip to make it to DLR as much as i can!!

              I try to visit Disneyland every two-three months, but with a six hour drive I have to keep my trips to when I can go with other people and share the cost of gas. Thankfully I have a friend who likes to go as often as I do. The higher the price of gas, the more likely my trips will be fewer and more spreadout. I may not renew my AP in August when it runs out.

                It's definitely making me think twice about quick turnaround trips. If it continues to increase like most Americans think it will, we probably will look into carpooling with other Zonies to make the trip more affordable.

                  If I skip going to a meet I only have to gas up once a week usually. If I go to a meet I usually have to gas up twice during the week.

                  With gas over $4 per gallon and going up, this might impact the frequncy that I go to DL.

                      Only if Ferarri made buses for the OCTA would I consider it!

                          You know what, I complain about it a lot and everything, but it doesn't really affect my driving habits overall. I just like complaining about it because I feel guilty that I cannot possibly afford a Prius or Civic Hybrid and complaining helps me feel better until I can buy a newer and more efficient car. I get about 25 MPG, but it takes something like 30+ to reach the threshold of getting off foreign oil. I don't want more domestic oil, I just want to use less oil overall.

                            Gas prices are definitely the reason I haven't been to the parks recently. $4 a gallon is ludicrous and I haven't been since January so I'm having serious withdrawls.

                              since i am currently less than 15 miles away from dlr, no, it has not changed the amount of trips. however, when i go back to school in los angeles in the fall, i will probably not make the drive unless i am already in orange county, because its about 40 miles!
