It seems that the success of Disneyland’s recent makeovers has lead to some ticket offers for Southern California residents being cancelled.
Since 2003 Disneyland offered “2 for 1” or similar offers to local SoCal residents as an incentive to bring visitors to the parks during the slow season (January thru May). However due to the overwhelming attendance spikes from last year’s Cars Land refurbishments Disney has withdrawn these discounts.
“We regularly evaluate our offerings in the local market and make decisions based on our business needs,” Disneyland Resort spokeswoman Suzi Brown.
Since the June 2012 debut of the $1 billion dollar makeover to Disney California Adventure and the addition of Cars Land Disneyland California has set records for attendance. Attendance is now equally split between Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. As a result of the boosted attendance the Disney California parks are greatly outgrowing Walt Disney World.
In Florida, Disney is offering residents their own special offer – a three-day ticket for $119 (regular cost is $242).
