Despite increasing AP prices 250% in the last decade... now it is 1 million pass holders generating 10 million visits of the resort's 20 million annual visits?
Why no off-season? So many so-cal AP holders!
Why is it so crowded? So many AP holders. Look at the comments on this board from locals that do payment plan and calculate it as cost per week.
I could see this future coming 5 years ago. I went searching for a way to avoid this future where increasing prices was used as an attempt to price out the great unwashed masses. My idea was to limit the number of visits you could get on an AP. Say, like 10 visits a year on a DAP or SoCal and 20 on a PAP. Basically, stop selling APs and make them hoppers with a 1 year expiration, with photo and stuff on the pass.
Oh the outcry that got from the few locals that go 100 times a year.
Well, the alternative is for prices to keep going up, up, and up until the only people still able to go are those that go at least once a week.
End of Sept already, and as expected, no plan on a trip to DIsneyland for this year. Probably not even next year.

I think that it may take about a year to see how the changes in price affect crowds. People's AP's expire at different times throughout the calendar year and I read that many renewed theirs right before the price increase.
