Food... thanks Nicholas, that's an idea for the future. I still can't believe how overpriced it can be either. It feels like even more of a con right now because the Pound>Euro is so bad. Although even getting something from Starbucks or Eat here surprises me how much stuff apparently costs now.
Well this topic should probably be left for other opinions, but as for tickets in my opinion whilst the new rises seem like a lot all at once, they're still a complete bargain compared to the competition. Buy tickets for Legoland Windsor at the gate and you'll be £34 worse off. Buy at Alton Towers and you'll be robbed of a huge £35. One pound more than a day at Disneyland Park!
A day at any WDW park costs $71 or £36, so a little more. With the good Dollar>Euro however, it's €46, rather than €49 for DLRP. Tokyo (5,800 yen) is very cheap for us at €36 or just £27. California is also cheaper, $66 - £34 or €42.
So for me they're still about right but are now at the upper limit for DLRP.
I truly feel us fans get a lot more for our money from the parks than the average visitor, soley because we are probably better informed and understand more about the theming and knowledge of the parks, so getting a better understanding, giving you more informed choice of how to make the most of your days in the park.
Yeah, really true. I feel sorry for - but also get quite annoyed by - people who go to DLRP completely uninformed and then probably come home and go on one of those travel websites (or write a "guest column" for a national newspaper...) saying it's bad value. It's what you make it. In this way, Disneyland is not
seeing like a film, where every showing is the same.
