The OC Weekly reports that: “Disneyland and California Adventure, which are practically printing money these days they’ve been so successful with the whole Cars Land thing, announced earlier this week the end to the Southern California resident program that provided reduced admission prices to locals. Perhaps the Mouse House’s snub of Southlanders will pay for another Orange County theme park?”
You can buy an annual admission card at Knott’s Berry Farm for only $72–with no blackout dates. A full unblocked Premium Annual Passport at Disneyland would set you back $649, for admission to both parks at the Disney Resort in Anaheim.
That means a family of four would pay less than $300 for four season passes to Knott’s – but would have to pay about $2,500 for the same thing at Disneyland!
Will Southern California residents, who no longer get a deal at Disneyland, head for Knott’s instead?
