My best friend and his family are coming into town from Montana in June. They are interested in getting Disneyland 2 day park hopper tickets. His jaw dropped when he saw what he'd be spending for this journey. Disneyland has gotten ridiculous with it's prices. He's looking at around $800 just to make it past the front gate. Just wait until his kids want souvenirs and food.
My work gives a very minimal discount for Disneyland tickets (about $8 off per ticket). Does anyone here know of any "hook ups" or best ways to get some better discounts for tickets? He's trying to save all the money he can for this trip.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Well... I can get you 2 day park hoppers at the following pricing:
Child: Gate Price: $197.00 plus tax $0.00 = $197.00
YOUR CORPORATE PRICE: $184.00
Adult: Gate Price: $210.00 plus tax $0.00 = $210.00
YOUR CORPORATE PRICE: $196.00
3 Day park hoppers are about 35 bucks more.
I had no effin clue Disneyland was that much. Tell your buddy, "It aint worth it. Disneyland BLOWS!"

Man, it sucks that the prices are so high for one or two day visits. Really makes me realize how much of a value my annual pass is.

His timing sucks in terms of my initial suggestion - the cheapest annual passes. They're blacked out for the summer months, though.
I used to know someone that worked there and he could let people in for free through a side gate a few times a year...but he's long since moved on, sorry. I have no idea what AAA discounts look like, but it's worth it to check out if any of you are members. Maybe look into veterans' or others if they apply...? I know I'm not much help, but I would usually just buy the cheap annual passes with tax refund money. We'd go Friday nights for a few hours, and I knew where to get by on parking.
The one big piece of advice I can give you is DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, be tempted by what you see on craigslist and the other online sites promising huge discounts. You will get screwed, guaranteed.

Are they able to take advantage of the SoCal resident discount if I were to purchase the tickets? I'm guessing they don't check ID at the gate.
Excuse my ignorance, I don't frequent Disneyland that often. Afraid that may be changing since we have a 2 year old boy who loves Mickey.

They do check id at gate.

That's good to know. What do they do about children that don't have identification?

Here's the most current pricing info.
Funny how people complain how overpriced it is yet every year the wait in lines get longer and longer. Once demand decreases, so will ticket prices.
