Wonder if Florida will follow suit?

Also Disneyland doesn't have the capacity that WDW has. They have had a lot of dates (more than any pass at WDW) blacked out for passholders because of this. In fact if I recall correctly when Galaxy's Edge opened they blacked out DL for most of the summer to all passholders. I think this was coming to DL either way. Just the pandemic gave them a clean point to just do it.

They did say they had something coming to replace it. I'm interested to see what that will be.
 
I’m honestly surprised no park has done a discount psd for only certain days. Like a Sun-Wed and Thur-Sat.

Like @netdvn said WDW does have a pass like that where you can only visit Monday-Friday plus other blackout dates. They also have one where you might only be able to go to one of the parks on a given day and they each have their own blackout calendar.

This.

The demand for APs at Disneyland is far greater than the demand for WDW passes as there are more people in all of Southern California than the entire state of Florida. The local demand for resident APs there caused the prices to skyrocket. The DL AP that was mostly comparable to my Florida resident WDW AP cost twice as much as what I paid for mine.

Update: WDW Florida is ending passes too, but allowing existing passholders to extend.


Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, is allowing existing pass holders to renew while halting sales of additional passes.

I’ll be honest, with resort guests and DVC they likely make so much money that the loss of memberships won’t impact them all that much. From their standpoint members know all the tricks of discounts, free stuff, create backups via fast pass, and are more likely to leave property for meals. The loss of their membership to add some more resort stays where people have to spend with them and pay for fast passes, not use discount loopholes, and pay for everything would likely offset it.

Yeah it's old news. Disney has only been allowing renewals since they reopened. It's only back in the news because DL canceled their program, so everyone is noticing that this is still the policy.

Disney is now completely overpriced now and has been for awhile now. Their Halloween events pricing has gone way up and has cut the time in the park and the parade. My family and I used to go every other year and now will probably never go back due to their pricing structure. Universal has won our business lately with their better prices and honestly mostly better rides esp. in Islands of Adventure.
 
I agree Universal has been a huge winner through this both in pricing and services offered for that pricing. I have multipul stays booked at Universal in 2 bedroom suites at $124/night......Nothing Disney has can compare with that. Previous years we always did MNSSHP sometimes more than one night, this year we will be doing 4 nights of HHN and then a couple at BGT HOS and Seaworlds new HOS event but no Halloween at WDW!
 
It truly is insane how high the demand for Disney is. I want to completely agree with you on all topics @Metalbourne but realistically the Boo Bash will fill out. With all that being said, I agree that it is too expensive. I believe that over the course of the next decade it will become apparent that Universal has taken the top spot for the main vacation destination in Orlando. I love Disney and Universal almost evenly but it is hard ignore the recent cutbacks in Disney's overall experience compared to Universal's value proposition and the fact that Universal is building its arsenal of amenities and rides quite fast. Disney has incredible offerings but I do not see massive additions outside of what has been previously announced.

Amazed at how much folks are willing to spend to give themselves a BIGGER headache than WDW already is🤷‍♂️ You basically pay $25/person per day to burden yourself with making constant ride reservations on your phone🤪 On top of that you pay a premium for premium rides🤔
I prefer the simplicity of just vacationing while Im on Vacation. (*Especially if I’m spending thousands of dollars on said vacation. Just for 💩and 😂 I priced out a WDW vacation, and for me and my three nephews, it would run around $4500 for five days in the parks😮 No thanks)
