  • Should Shorter Park Hours = Lower Admission Price?

    I was reading another MCer's rant about DCA's hours. They close at 6pm some nights. So the park is only open for 8 hours but you still have to pay full price to get in. Some nights DCA is open for 12 hours. So why go when the park is only open for a shorter period of time? Why not get more hours for your money?

    This isn't only about DCA, either. It goes for DCA's more popular brother across the Esplanade, too.

    Should they adjust their prices for shorter park hours?

    I mean lots of us on MC don't really think about it because we have AP's, but lots of people pay the ticket prices to get in.

    I'm just thinking 'out loud' here.

    Typically when there are less hours per dollar there are also less people and lines are short. With the shorter lines you end up with more attractions per hour so maybe the price should auctually go up.

      That's a good point. I didn't think of it that way.

        And during the "off-season," there should be reasonable discounts to be found.

          Truthfully I think the prices to get into the park are too high as it is. I wish that the prices would be rolled back.

            Or the park could close at 6PM year round, and they could charge less $$ during the busy summer months then they do during the slow times of the year. After all you would be riding less.

              The fireworks show would truly suck, then.

                I think they should. But they are always looking for new ways to rip people off lol.

                  DLR needs revenue in order to make a profit.
                  I agree that the one-day price is way too high.
                  Currently, there is an average daily gate admission revenue that's probably much lower than that daily ticket price.
                  In order to lower the daily ticket price (higher than average) while keeping the admission revenue steady is to raise the price of those who are paying less than the average revenue.

                      Yes. Anyone here buy a lightbulb from the 'Main Street Electrical Parade' that "glowed away forever" to DCA?

                          Fact: Disney will never, ever, ever lower the admission price. This does not include group discounts, seasonal Socal discounts, or anything else temporary, but I can guarantee you that the posted price of $50 or whatever it is these days will never decrease.

                            Sadly, I think you're right.

                              Welcome to Micechat. And welcome to Microeconomics 101: An increase in demand (Disneyland in July as opposed to February) will result in an increase in price (Premium AP as opposed to SoCal AP).
