I pay for all the rides I go on when I pay well over 100 to get inside and 25 for parking. Not to mention expensive food and souvenirs. And staying on property in California is a fever dream with the prices they charge. I certainly don’t need to be charged every time I want to ride my favorites. I’d rather wait in standby all day.
With the cost of annual passes for Floridians Disneyworld should definitely not charge for rides in any way.
I love that once you’re in a Disney Park everyone is equal. Any little girl can be a princess. Every kid can be a Jedi. It doesn’t matter how rich your parents are – it how rich your imagination is. I think it would be very sad to create separate lines for Haves and Have Nots. It’s something that a low rent fun fair would do, not the Happiest Place on Earth.
Hopefully they keep it fair, free and Fast!
Florida’s system works because most visitors aren’t local. Annual pass holders already enjoy a reduced cost per day and discounts – that’s their perk.
Universal Florida is currently charging for fast passes. I think it’s a flat rate of $200, check on that. If you stay at an expensive Universal hotel, they just give you the expensive pass. Disney vacations are expensive. If Disney charges for fast pass, it will be another example of them expecting the public to pay for their losses during covid. Florida never expected them to close; they just did it.
Universals passes change. We were going to grab them for a holiday weekend and it was going to be $600. So we skipped them and rope dropped.
Give me something where it bundles photopass and everything else for a reasonable rate and I’m in.
Why am I starting to feel like Disney is always searching for ways to pick my pocket. It feels like the middle class is being priced out. I can’t believe this is what Walt had in mind.
I have been a DVC member since 2008. After you pay for the DVC points every member of Disney Vacation Club even after you have paid for all the points that you purchased. You have to pay a fee for every point that you purchased for as long as you owe the points. I myself pay monthly, this year it costs me $203.00 per month for point fees, that’s over $2400.00 this year, every year the price gets higher for the same number of points. So do I favor having to pay fast pass fees? NO!
I really hope they do not get rid of the fass pass that is included for staying on property. Withiout it we are unlikely to stay on the property and will likely go to universal or other destinations. We are seriously considering cancelling our 2022 trip because of this and the fact that MagicalExpress has been cancelled (not included in the price). They say feel free to pay for MEARS but what it is is that you are just getting less for your money…. much less than I expected when I booked. I’m not happy about these developments, and if they use Covid as an excuse to change the programs and charge more after, shame on them.
