I just read on another thread that adult admission for peak days is now $135! The last time I was there was in 2009, and I was surprised how few people were there compared to 2000, the last time I was there. (Both times were in summer, btw, which is peak time, I think).

Just wondering how attendance has been, and also if the $400 per day per family cost (about) is actually worth it, in your opinion.

I haven't been to Disneyland lately, but I understand that there are now different prices for different days, the cheapest of which is $97. That's probably for Monday through Thursday, but you'd have to check. Also, I don't know if there are any dates other than peak time in the summer.

I doubt I will ever see the inside of the park again at those prices!

I think New Years day is a sell out day, they have a special parade & all, so it is probably more. I have been. years ago, I will never go again, not my thing.

Disney World is obviously different and a vacation destination (I would argue Disneyland is more for locals), but weekends/peak times are still packed with the variable pricing, especially Magic Kingdom (I'm a FL resident with season passes, and only go on weekends, unfortunately).

Have been once, on a trip to LA last year. It was kind of fun in a corny way, but not someplace I’d return to. I was limited on the type of rides I could go on (It’s a small world, Haunted mansion, Jungle cruise) so spent time at presentations like “Great moments with Mr. Lincoln” (actually pretty good) and “Enchanted tiki room” (really, really corny), walking the different park areas, having something to eat (food was surprisingly good, with the Dole Whip a particular favorite), and just people watching. Worth going to once, am thinking.

Recently my brother took his son there as a surprise birthday gift for the child. (They live within driving distance & my nephew thought he was being taken to school at first!). I know the boy really enjoyed the day there. I know it was too expensive to take the whole family so this was a good compromise.

It's been a very long time since I was last at Disneyland and it was most certainly not a cheap day. Sure, admission was less, but a dollar was a lot harder to come by and bought a heck of a lot more than it does today.

The last time I visited Disneyland was 2005 and I don't remember the admission fee, or any of the ticket fees.

Have been to Disneyland just two times, the prior was around 1968, again no clue on prices.

What I do recall is that each time we accompanied couples with young children, and we didn't have children. Both times were fun for the kids and their parents, but we would have enjoyed it more sans children.
