Here is a behind the scenes look at the movie. Be sure to check out the trailer in the related post section below.
PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME hits theaters on May 28th, 2010.
Every year around the first of the year Disney shares with us a tradition, a rate increase on tickets. So far no news as of yet if there will be a rate increase. If you remember Disney raised its ticket prices on both coasts back in August:
Disneyland Resort: Single Day/Single Park tickets will increase by $3 to $72 per Adult and $62 per Child; Premium Annual passes are up $40 to $429; Deluxe Annual Pass is up $20 to $298; Southern California Annual pass is up $20 to $194; and Southern California Select Annual pass is up $10 to $144.
Walt Disney World: 1 Day Base Ticket will increase $4 to $79 per Adult and $5 to $68 per Child; Magic Your Way tickets with 4 days or more will see the smallest percentage in increase; Both the Park Hopping and the Water Parks Fun & More options will increase to a flat rate of $52 (up $2)
Actually after posting an article I found earlier about Disney scaling back it’s theme park discounts they went ahead and released the Gift Card promotion just a few months later. DOH! I am not sure what is going on down at Walt Disney Co, I think all businesses even Disney is struggling in this .
On a more encouraging note the Give a Day, Get a Day is off to a tremendous start! The website was so flooded with people wanting to sign up they crashed the server. Be sure to take advantage of that and give back to the people in your community.
Be sure to keep checking back with us as new Deals and Offers become available I will have them posted! As always we will continue to monitor the Disney News, cause we are your Disney Detectives.
