Another price increase and this one seems like it was mostly a surprise. here is the article from MiceChat that breaks it all down. Let's look at it by park:
parking is now 18 dollars (up one dollar)
same discounts as before
- So Cal Select
- NEW: Signature
- NEW: Signature plus-this cost over 1000 dollars!
- So Cal and Premium only available for renewals.
Basically for these new passes, the Signature is the same as Premium except you are blacked out during Christmas Holidays (and I do think they will start adding in more blackout days). An extra 200 dollars for christmas? NO THANK YOU!
WALT DISNEY WORLD
Passes got new names:
- Platinum Plus
this is my pass and it went up again-1400 but considering it is equal to Signature and Platinum Plus, it is still a good value.
The one positive is all of the passes include free Photopass which is awesome! I will definitely make use of that, especially after we got Memory Maker when I went in June. the pictures are all so cute!
My thoughts on this? Not surprisingly-especially the splitting of the Disneyland passes as the parks are always crazy on days when all Passholders are eligible especially with so many being closed during the construction of Star Wars. I think it will weed some people out for sure. For WDW, it seems like a good deal with the addition of photopass and also parking included on passes that it was not previously.
What are you thoughts on the increase?
