  • [Chat] Passholders benefits we SHOULD get.

    Just a couple thoughts:

    1. Should passholders get our own separate line for the entrance gate?

    I say yes. It would cut down wait times, and give us a nice little perk upon entrance.

    2. Should stores that utilize AP discounts have some kind of symbol either at the register or on their listing in the maps saying so, so we don't have to keep asking every place?

    I also say yes.

    3. Should AP's get preferred parking places?

    This would probably get real ugly, real soon. So I'm gonna say no. But if they could perfect the process, why not?

    Those were some thoughts I had heard about. What do you guys think?

    Yes, APs should get their own ticket line and it should be a slower load since the other guests paid full price to get in.

      I was actually referring to the entrance of the park line, fyi.

        I think getting into Disneyland for pennies on the dollar is a big enough perk. An exclusive main gate line would be pretty insane after 4p or at park opening. The rest of the time, the turnstiles aren't too crazy, so I don't think it's really necessary.

        I do like the idea of a little AP type symbol to easier identify discounts.
        Parking is gonna be a mess for sometime, so I agree that it's not really practical. When parking does get much better, I think Disneyland could benefit from a preferred parking system similar to Seaworld. For an extra 10 bucks, you are guaranteed to be x amount of feet from the escalator..I'm not sure the best logistical way to park this, but it seems feasible. If that option was there, I think AP's should be given the chance to pay the diff between general and preferred.

        What I do think the program could benefit from is more after hour type pay per play events. 1997 and light magic are behind us, so why not try another AP Party? Like the Halloween party, tix could be in the 25-35 dollar range for a few hours and maybe a unique twist for the night..Could be something like Space Mtn with the lights on or something like that. These events are money makers for Disney and feed us with "exclusive" use of the park and offer unique experiences.

          I see what you're saying about it not always being necessary for us to have an AP line, but during peak hours it could thin the crowd. It wouldn't always need to be an option. I'm not sure, but I think they actually tried it once.

            1. No, because other guests aren't going to get it and go in that line anyway. Then you'll get:
            CM: This is the Annual Passholder only line.
            Guest: That's what I am.
            CM: No, you have a regular ticket.
            Guest: Why do they get special treatment?
            CM: I'm sorry, sir...it's just the rules.
            Guest: This is ********! I'm reporting you to city hall!
            [I wish this was a dramatization...I really do....]

            2. Yeah, that would be easier. I hate when I pull out my pass and I'm told they don't accept it...makes me feel like an idiot.

            3. Again, just gonna get confused non-APs.

              I would say the one thing I would like to see for Passholders is a few dates or something where passholders can get early entry.

              I view it not as a SoCal resident who comes frequently on a passholder but for us we come enough (3-6) times a year, it makes sense to do the AP, we usually get one Premium and the rest deluxe.

              But it would be nice to have some time where we get in early, this weekend we are because we are staying at the DLH and you get in an hour early if you are at one of the Disney hotels.

                With 800,000 pass holders all of the above options might be a little hard to manage.

                      If the premium pass goes to 600 it should include magic morning hours

                        Seriously, APs do get some pretty cool perks, such as:

                        1. Preview days for new attractions like Nemo and TSMM (selected by a special drawing)

                        2. Backstage Pass newsletter.

                        3. AP Discounts for the DLR Hotels.

                        Can anyone think of any others?

                          Discounts are easy to determin. If you have any AP that isn't premium, you only get discounts at the food locations. Only Premiums get discounts on Merch! Please for the love of god don't feed the AP's egos with BS benefits!

                            No. This only feeds the self-entitlement monsters.

                            I feel we should only get admission and (for Premium) parking. Of course, to drop the discounts, I really feel they should drop the price of everything in the parks to a reasonable level. If they were to do that, I wouldn't mind not having any discounts.

                              Disney did experement with seperate lines (Regular tickets, AP's and comps/sign-ins) at DCA a few years ago. It was a fiasco, as many guests just went to the shortest line. It slowed things down and required more CM's to operate.

                              So Disney went back to the way things are currently.

                              I think if Disney is looking for a special AP perk, maybe a special food stand that served In-n-Out Burgers

                                I think Deluxe should at least get a discount at parking. Down to 5 dollars maybe.

                                As far as the pass-holder lines go. We already have a special line. It's called the single rider line XD.

                                      They are offered one, parking for the entire year for just $59. If you go once a month, that is $5 per trip.

                                      It is a lot eaiser to deal with than having to do a multiple step transaction at the Toll Booths. all you would be doing is slowing down the lines of cars for everyone.
