I went to Disneyland in January for my grandson 2nd birthday. I have to tell you I was so disappointed. I have been coming to Disneyland since I was five and I’m now 71, and I dont think I’ll be back.
It used to be fun running around from ride to ride and you’ve taken all the fun out of Disneyland
everything has to be done on your phone. How is that fun? Let me tell you IT’S NOT..,
As a senior citizen, it’s gotten “way to EXPENSIVE “ and with no discounts for seniors it’s really sad. Us seniors would enjoy it but not now!
This isn’t what “Walt” wanted, I am sure of this. He wanted it to be for families and for them to have fun. He must be turning in his grave to see what you’ve made Disneyland into. A Big Fat Money Pit.
I’m really sorry you’ve done this to The Happiest Place On Earth. I would say it’s not so happy any more. 😭
I agree, it is just not the same or worth it, and I have been an annual pass holder for almost 20 years, but my days are numbered. There are only a few attraction I can use with my wife, RR, PeopleMover, carousel. Why can’t I get a Senior Pass to just get in, walk around, shop and eat…NO RIDES. I would buy that pass in a minute if the offered a NO RIDE pass. For seniors this would be great to spend time with their youngest generation but without the excessive cost of a day ticket. Think about it…let’s get a movement

We live in the UK and we’ve been going to Disney in Florida since 1993; with each new grandchild it’s been seven times in all. So with each visit the numbers we take have increased. The last time, 2021, we couldn’t believe the hike in prices; and great areas were like a construction site. It’s absolutely scandalous and after paying inflated prices for the tickets you now have to pay for a fast track or stand for 2 hours to get onto the decent rides. Once you’ve paid the extortionate price for the ticket you either only get onto a limited number of rides, or don’t do the best rides , or be forced to buy each member of the group a fast track. They have no morality. They know you’re going to keep spending rather than disappoint the children. Sadly, we won’t be going again. Their greed has left a very nasty taste in the mouth and caste a shadow over the happy memories we’ve gathered over the years
Hear Hear! I agree with Ken! Let’s get a movement for a senior pass!! I really go for the ambiance and the food, although we still enjoy a ride or two and the shows. But when we go with our children and grandchildren, we def don’t ride all the rides they do. Expedition Everest, Space Mountain, Dinosaur, Frozen Ever After, are just a few of the rides that are too hard on our backs. Even the Kilimanjaro Safari is a really rough ride, so Animal Kingdom is fast losing appeal to ride ANY rides in that park…all too rough, unless you spend all day in line for the two Pandora rides.
Disney spends way too much money on changing itself. People do not want to plan every second on their phones. There is no spontaneity. They are losing money because they are outpricing themselves. They are constantly changing everything that made Disney a special vacation spot. Renovations are one thing, but taking beloved rides out is not going to draw anyone in. They have already outpriced themselves for the average family. If they want to make more money, they must stop making more changes. Go back to when stocks were good and learn from it. Freeze plans for one year and turn things back a little to when it was profitable. Disney is complicating itself right out of business.
