I recall spending $170 for a 2-day pass for Universal around Christmas. Universal will maximize their profit as best they can. I never mentioned anything with about their ticket prices I was talking about Disney's. If people are willing to pay more and still visit, the prices will rise. WDW prices have been rapidly increasing yet people still visit in droves. Universal is not attempting to spread the people who visit the 2 parks over 3 parks, they are attempting to attract guests. If that means stealing people from Disney, great! Disney won't struggle, but they can not stop adding expansions after this wave ends, and continuously increase the prices at the same time. When Universal adds a new park, of course, the Annual passes should increase. You gain more value. I see the new park as a win for the consumer.Do you actually believe this new park will not lead to higher Universal ticket prices. Right now you can buy an annual seasonal pass for $216. When the new park opens and you get 3 instead of 2 what will happen to the price. Also when they have thousands of more hotel rooms and the are not as dependent on locals what will happen? The answer is simple. Season passes with and without blackouts will increase to be closer to WDW prices. Daily tickets will go up too. The competition between Disney and Universal is for tourists with lots of money. Neither company cares about the $200 to $300 a yeat customer. They want people who stay in their hotel and ot timeshares and spend a fortune. They want you to stay in their rooms, only spend time at their parks and in their resorts and eat in their restaurants. The only question I have for Comcast is are they going to start a timeshare like the DVC? Disney has no problem with people like me who have Platinum Plus Annual Passes but they will be reducing the benefits of the lower passes as they add more and more resorts and Comcast is the same. They don't care about anything but the bottom line.
