    Yeah, I was hoping that phrase would die when Charles left but others picked it up.

    While that would be better it still is a bit redundant as "value" implies "price" plays a role already.

    So they can just say "value" and be done with it
    Exactly. Something is either worth what you paid (a good value) or not worth what you paid (not a good value). Keep it simple.

    Well no. Value and Price are two different things. Price is the cost. Value is what you get from that cost, either in terms of what you feel you saved or in the return you get. For instance: Imagine you can get 1 can of soda for $1 dollar or 6 pack of soda for $4.00. There is a higher cost in getting 6 cans of soda, but more value than buying 6 individual cans.

    The "value" in this context is referring to the quality of service we expect from Disney. The increased cost in conjunction with photoboxes, elimination of streetmosphere, overall decline in customer service, etc. does not match the value we have come to expect to justify the higher expenses. Granted "value" is a much more intangible element in this case, but that is what is meant here.

    Preaching to the choir here. I raised this same point in another thread about the dining show (I believe the one about them butchering the pronunciation of dishes). The phrase bugs the heck out of too.

    but price is an element of value ... if you have the greatest quality but cost 10x more than something with 50% of that quality, that isn't good value

    So if you say something has good value that means the price you are paying for it is worth the quality you are receiving. You can't measure "value" if you don't know the price

    The point is price is simply one metric of value but they are not one and the same. One could end up paying the same price for something not worth the quality received. It is that variance vs cost that determines value.

    This phrase makes me cringe, and I don't know why. I think it's like my brain is trying to divide by zero while trying to understand what it means.
    Yeah I think my biggest annoyance is that it’s always said so confidently like it’s some sort of word used by food connoisseurs when in actuality I’m pretty sure it doesn’t mean anything.

    In the context of this discussion...

    Price is implied in value. Value is relative; based on varying factors by the purchaser.

    "Price per value" is like saying "cost per my subjectively-deemed worth". It's redundant.
