Topic: Who will not be renewing their annual passport?

Sun 10/21/2012 12:15p
Due to the new prices of the annual passes, none of my friends or family members will be renewing. I'm the only one. Gonna be lonely!

Im guess a lot of people will not be. I know Disney let passholders know they could renew at the old price and im sure a lot of people renewed then. it will be interesting to see how many will buy at the new prices.

With as much as the prices went up, they could probably stand to lose 20-30% of the AP base and still come out ahead revenue-wise. Keep in mind that they want to maximize revenue, not AP population or turnstile clicks.

It's about time Disney raised the price on APs...

I wasn't going to, but my Prince changed my mind. We just renewed, but I make no guarantee for next year.

For the past 15 years or so I've held a WDW and a DL annual pass. With this price bump it's finally time to go with a Premier pass to both parks. I think I'll actually come out a bit ahead on money!

^^ Thats the only way i will buy a AP if it's a premier.

The place is too crowded. If they raised the prices by 30% in May, 2012 and then perhaps there's another increase coming before Christmas or this winter, hopefully that would decrease the number of AP holders by 30% or more.

Disney still gets the same amount of money, but has a savings in operating costs and expenses due to the lower amount of APs dropping in on Friday nights or Sunday afternoons.

The place is too crowded, and there's no longer an off season short of a rainy weekday in January. They had to do something, and raising prices for a quality product in high demand is how a Capitalist society deals with the need to "do something".

I agree that a increase is fair if someone goes every single week. There should be a AP available for more days than a park hopper, but not an excessive amount of days either.
