You can, too! Vote with your wallet - if you think Disneyland is too expensive, then don't go. That's the beauty of a market economy - people will pay what things are worth. Obviously Disney thinks a family of four will fork over $200 a day for a little time with the mouse -- and they're most likely right.

I used to work at disneyland. It's the most horrible place I have ever worked at. A lot of the workers dislike their jobs and hate dealing with these tourists that come in expecting them to bow to them. I say boycott disney. It's not the happiest place on earth for the workers.

But if you really want to go so badly, start to get to know one of the cast members. They get discounted tickets & passes :) Or you have one that's a friend, they can get you in for free.

One thing i do appreciate Disney for is making that part of Anaheim nice. If it wasn't for the Disneyland Resort, Anaheim could be more compared to Compton or Bellflower.

Make-up my mind Meg, did you or don't you like Disneyland? Like yourself I've heard horror stories about the stupid mouse, for instance, there was a lawsuit some time ago by one of the employees because in Wonderland/Neverland management did not allowed males employees with facial hair, meaning they either had to shave their beard and mustache or they would get employed in addition they can't have exposed tatoos because in Wonderland evil just doesn't exist
only evil management.

Good! let's all go nuts by going to Knott's Berry Farm, I understand they just lowered their admission prices because they weren't making money. Cotton candy is now 25 cents.

Also Meg, if Compton and Bellflower looks ugly to you it's because we like to keep people like you out we don't want bitches like you in the neighbor - hood Miss Fancy.

Compton, or Bellflower? I used to live in Bellflower. You get out of a place what you put into it. And as you so politely showed every place has it's good and bad elements in it whether it be gang members, or management.

Thank you for the lesson Meg, I really apologize for the insult without knowing you.
I shouldn't called you what I did, Again my apologies! You're absolutely "Correcto Mondo", but, Disneland it's not the "Wonderland" people think it is and you're right once again about the tourists and also the locals about the way they treat employees. Again my apologies.....

All service job companies treat their employees like "crap" because it is at best semi-skilled work. If you deal with the public you will be expect by your employer to suck it up... the only exception I can think of are medical office workers, govt employees, etc.

Within a few months congress will have passed the open borders law, and most of the disneyland "actors" will be fired and replaced with guest workers from mexico.

That can only happen if the minimum wages are not increased, because here in the good 'ol USA no one wants to work for minimum wages we're just too good for it unless, of course like you say they're semi-skilled or nor H.S. grad., but, then again those are the only jobs the undocumented seem to "TAKE AWAY" from the "SO-CALL AMERICAN PEOPLE", but, have you really take a good look that those jobs that the undocumented take pay less than the minimum wage? Look at the field work, garment industries and other low paying jobs are being taken overseas, again, why, because employers are being penalized for hiring illegal immigrants not "ALIENS" because they don't come from another planet and arrogant people see these low paying jobs as degrading.
Somebody please, please do your calculations;
minimum wage in California $6.75 p/hr or is it $7.25, I don't know I'm in Kuwait, but, that's beside the point how much is the rent for either a 3 or 4 br, gas, groceries, utilites, childcare, dr visits, medication and public transportation. These people working for minimum wages don't have "BIG TOYS" interests they just want to survive and put their kids thru school.

Exactly the point Bigboy, because people like you "DO NOTHING" and pay the price, they continue to increase. It's the few people like myself that boycott the park and stop going and paying the price they "MAY" lower the prices because of lack of attendance.
Let's see when either you close down your business or get fired/laid-off if you can afford to go with the aid you get from welfare.

It's people like you that cry about prices. As long as people are making babies then disney will always be in business no matter how much they charge. So if you are going to boycot disneyland then that is great because that is one less person that I will have to bump into at the park.

Have you tried going on a diet you FAT SLOB that way you wouldn't look like those bumping cars bumping out of control, or do you wear bumping guards too. Maybe that's why you don't have bumping kids either 'cause you're permanent pregnant.

Lucky Luciano, what the hell does your reply have to do with Jojos comment? It makes no sense!! I'll continue to take my family to Disneyland. A $3 increase is hardly anything to worry about. If you dont like the increase, STAY HOME. Also, anyone on welfare should not go to the park.

it is a shame when one can not take a family of five children to this attraction. You have to have money to get in, money to eat, water is not even free..........I feel sorry for the little kids that will never experiance the joy of seeing cartoons alive and rides made just for them. To these people that make these dirty cracks, we have the freedom to say what we want but don t you feel a bit foolish and childish.

Funny that people will piss and moan about these prices, but won't bat an eye to pay $8.00 per head to go to a 90 minute movie. Hell, at least for that price I can waste an entire day. Try taking you kids to a pro ball game.$25-50 per seat, plus $15+ for parking, figure another C-Note for food and suvineres(sp). All some so jerk can bitch about his next contract because nobody wants to pay him $2.5 MIL per year, and his wife (and MANY girlfriends) can't live on only $2 MIL flat.
