The first Disneyland built in America is located in Anaheim, California. It is owned and operated by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts a division of The Walt Disney Company. The California Disneyland was the only theme park to be designed and built under the direct supervision of Walt Disney himself. In 1998, the theme park was renamed to “Disneyland Park”. In 2007, the study has proven that there is 14,800,000 people visited the park. Today, there is Disneyland in Japan and Hongkong.
Ever since its grand opening on 1982 until today, Disneyland’s price of the attraction was included to the price of the park admission. A small admission fee is required to get into the park, but in order for you to take on the rides and other attractions required the guests to purchase a book of tickets that consisted of several coupons. The coupons were also sold individually instead of a booklet.
The coupons labeled as A and B are only allowed admission to the smaller rides and attractions. While ticket C coupons were used for the most common attractions such as the Peter Pan ride, or the Tea Cups. Ticket D and E were eventually introduced with the latest introduction of the more extreme rides. Eventually, the expression of the “E ticket ride” is used to describe ride that gave an extraordinary thrilling experience.
In 1982, Disney dropped the tickets to a single admission price with unlimited access to all attractions. This, has guaranteed Disney higher revenue because they are guaranteed to receive a large sum of money even if the park visitor only stayed a few hours and rode only a few rides. Disneyland will be able to cut their cost in printing extra tickets, hiring ticket booth staff and hiring staff to guard the rides to prevent the visitors to get a free ride without tickets.
Soon enough, Disney introduced multi day passes and annual passes, which allow unlimited entry to the Disneyland for an annual fee and they are known to give student discounts as well. For an adult, Disneyland one day pass ticket cost $72.00 on August and it is expected to increase to $76.00 on June 2010.
