Sorry SoCal: Disneyland Discontinues Discounts

The happiest and one of the most Instagram-med places on earth (Photo by @yingx33 via Instagram)
Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

For the past ten years, Southern California residents had the opportunity to pick up discounted tickets for entry to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, but because things are going so well at the theme parks nowadays, Disney is nixing the program this year.

Since 2003, during the slower months of January to May, Disneyland made 2-for-1 admission available to regional residents, but a Disneyland Resort spokesperson is confirming that won't be happening this year, according to the OC Register.

It's actually Cars Land that's to blame; the improvements have brought in more people, so no need to bolster attendance with a price special. (Pssst, our Disneyland Resort had more attendance surges than Florida's Walt Disney World. Of course, Floridians are the ones getting a price break this season.)

It's $87 for an adult admission. You can also really stretch your dollar by taking a queue from this SoCal couple and getting an annual pass and going to Disneyland every single day for a year.
