Normally there is a little dip in the tourism levels in the late winter and early spring at the Disneyland Resort. To help keep the parks busy, they’ve offered incentives for locals to visit and spend a little of their hard earned cash on food and souvenirs. However, with the success of Cars Land and the DCA makeover, Disneyland isn’t forecasting any dip in non-local visitors. That means no special deals on admission for SoCal residents.
This move will undoubtedly disappoint many families who were counting on the discount in order to afford a visit to the park. I totally understand that. In fact, last year the park raised annual pass prices 30%. So locals might begin to feel like they’re under attack.
Instead I think this is an opportunity for families to save up a bit longer and then attend during the regular season when the park’s entertainment is in full swing and none of the attractions are closed for refurbishment.
Is the lack of a SoCal Discount at Disneyland going to impact your decision to visit the park this year?
