Thanks for sticking with me through this long personal odyssey through three days in Anaheim.
Here is the simple expense report for three days in Disneyland, two adults and two kids:
Calculating Price per Ride
With my $199 three-day ticket, I experienced twelve characters, thirty rides, three walk-throughs, four parades and one fireworks show.
Obviously the "ride" is the base unit of entertainment in the resort, but I needed numbers for character interactions, parades etc., so I came up with relative values to those activities and tweaked them until my total price equalled that $199.
Thus my trip can be dissected into 30 rides at $4.70 each, twelve character visits for $2 each, three walk-throughs for $3, four parades for $5, and a fireworks show for $5.
I could also divide the price by the total number of hours being entertained to the Disneyth degree, but I'm not going to bother. I'll just tell you it was well worth it.
A Crowded Park is Less Entertaining
Both Nick and Alisha had a story of the ultimate deserted Disneyland experience on a day when it was lightly raining.
Park Hopper Tickets are unneccessary.
