Every week our writers get together and answer a Disney-related question. Here is this week’s question and answers. Leave your answer in the comments!
Question of the Week: Today Disney changed their single-day ticket pricing structure, going to seasonal pricing with value, regular and peak pricing. Ignoring the price increase (because nobody likes that) do you think this is a good idea?
Andrew – I think the seasonal pricing is a decent idea to try to help alleviate the crowds during the peak times of the year. While I think trips to Walt Disney World are already complicated enough, there’s no doubt that both coasts are full during the summer and holidays. Do I think this pricing structure will be effective? Not really, but I’m not sure what else they could try. (Besides adding more attractions to add capacity, which is the most logical but doesn’t earn the company the most money.)
Melissa L – I don’t think I have much of an opinion. I don’t think prices would keep me from going, but like Andrew said at least the seasonal pricing may keep the crowds a little less than normal.
Cassie – I think that a season pricing structure is a pretty valid plan. Like Melissa said, I really doubt it will keep people from going to the parks, but will definitely bring in a lot more money. Plus, the lesser priced days (I’m guessing slower days) will probably increase in business since people will want to take advantage of the cheaper tickets. Overall, it makes a lot of financial sense to me!
