Cedar Fair has a season pass that lets you visit all of their parks. So does Six Flags. It's just a industry standard thing. It's kind of nice to hit up a new park when your traveling. Granted Disney's is 10x more expensive than the other too.
For sure I agree that Premier Pass should be a thing, but for that price tag i'm wondering who's gonna buy it and get their money's worth with it. I was thinking about getting it at 1500+ and even then i'd have to make another trip to Disneyworld (after my Jan trip) and a lot of visits to DL, which is easier, to make it worthwhile. But at almost 2k I'd imagine i'd have to be living at (or around) Disney.

I think you’d be surprised. There’s a rabid albeit small portion of the Disney Parks fanbase that easily gets their money’s worth on those AP’s by making multiple trips to each resort. But like you say, most of them are probably locals to DLR or WDW.

I mean, just look at how often a lot of the people on the WDW board on this site travel to Orlando. Throw in a trip or two to Anaheim and you easily get your money’s worth.

I have the Cedar Fair, Six Flags and SeaWorld multi-park passes, and since I am a member of the American Coaster Enthusiasts, I get use of all 3 easily, especially with CoasterCon events.

by the way, CoasterCon is being held in Southern California this year. SF Magic Mountain and Knott's being the main two parks. Lots of exclusive time in both parks, behind the scenes tours and a lot more. And all at a very reasonable price. Having the SP's gives you a great discount.

2018 was a very good year for Walt Disney Co.’s chief executive.


In a proxy statement posted Friday, Jan. 11, the company disclosed that Bob Iger’s compensation package last year jumped to $65.65 million vs. $36.3 million in 2017.



According to a Seeking Alpha report disseminating the proxy statement, Iger saw his stock options rise the most, to a value of $35.35 million from $8.98 million in 2017. His base salary rose to $2.87 million from $2.5 million.


Christine McCarthy, Disney’s chief financial officer, got a 32 percent bump in total compensation, earning $11.84 million.


Seeking Alpha reports Disney’s shares ran mostly flat in 2018, ending the year up at $109.65 after starting the year at an adjusted $110.05.


In December, Disney’s board firmed up the stock-return goals the company must exceed for Iger to receive a massive block of shares, something that was part of his contract extension in December 2017. But the board also sweetened the deal by increasing the chief executive officer’s potential payout.

Under the new terms, Iger can earn a maximum of 1.17 million shares if Disney’s stock return beats at least 75 percent of the companies in the S&P 500 Index over the four years ended Dec. 31, 2021. As of early December, that potential payout was worth $135.4 million.<<

Disney stock is flat since April 2017 when it was worth 115 per share. If you look at Oct 2017, the stock was worth $98. In Dec 2017, stock was $110. By Dec 2021, it could rise much higher, but long term investors are not exactly rolling in the dough. Iger has no risk stock options.
