  • [Fun] 25 fun things cheaper than Disneyland...

    Hello.

    I found this article in the OC Register just now. As most of us know by now admission prices have been raised yet again, so this article was just published suggesting fun things to do in the local area that is cheaper than Disneyland.

    25 fun things cheaper than Disneyland - OC Deals : The Orange County Register

    So if Disneyland is burning a hole in the pocket book, feel free to reference back to this for a cheaper alternative!

    I couldn't see myself doing most of these things. I think I'd just take Disneyland any day. I would go to Knott's, but I usually just go once a summer so I wouldn't need a pass.

            I could probably see myself going to Sea World. I don't mind it and I like the attractions and the shows there. If truth be told, I could probably see myself doing a lot of those things if Disney was too expensive for me.

                That would be nice, but I would get tired too early from being out too long.

                    I read some of the travel forums regularly, and Disneyland is one of the most expensive things vacationers can do, in terms of cost per day. The real bargains are beaches, mountains, deserts and parks - any publicly-owned land. This can make a huge difference to a family planning a vacation. Should they spend 4 days at Disneyland/DCA, for 2 adults and 2 kids under 10 that would would be a grand total of $736 for admission... or should they go to Yosemite National Park instead, where the grand total for the family would be $20? Or Yellowstone/Grand Teton: grand total $25. Or all National Parks for $80 for a year - and that's for the whole car, not per person? This is something that families are really considering now, when planning vacations in the current economic conditions.

                      I don't know what they are talking about regarding the fair, but it's WAY more expensive than Disneyland. Getting into the gate is the least amount of cost.

                        Not in Orange Country but the number one family vacation destination in the United States is also a LOT cheaper than Disney......

                        What's New in Wisconsin Dells

                        For a family of 4 to stay at a Disney Resort Hotel for two nights plus theme park tickets......it's going to cost somewhere around $1,000+.

                        That same family can stay at Mt. Olympus Theme Park incld. admission in Wisconsin Dells for about $400.

                        Now is Disneyland better than Wisconsin Dells....not according to TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Awards?

                        Is Disneyland better than Mt. Olympus Theme Park at the Dells? Perhaps.......but is Disneyland 2.5 times better than Mt. Olympus Theme Park? I kinda doubt it.

                        Totally anecdotal, but if the size of the smiles on the faces of my brothers family can be any indicator, then the Dells are vastly superior to todays Disneyland.

                        I am still a Disney freak, but the idea of paying less and coming home with a bigger smile does intrigue me

                          I went to the OC Fair last year thinking it was going to be an inexpensive activity for the weekend. Boy was I wrong. The first problem is taking children. If I go with adults, we are usually happy with the exhibits and displays. But with kids it's a totally different story -- after paying for food, there's also rides and games which all add up. Not including admission, I think we wound up paying at least $60 -$70!

                              Crossposting this from the main price increase thread:

                              1-day ticket to the Walt Disney Family Museum: $20

                              1-year "AP" (Individual membership) to WDFM: $75

                              Special movie screening at WDFM: $7

                              Enjoying an authentic Disney experience w/o in your face marketing or being called a "foamer" behind your back: priceless
