For me, it's not about annual price increases. I'm okay with that. Where I draw the line is on what type of experience I have. I still have an excellent time visiting DL. It wasn't that way at WDW. I noticed each of my trips becoming less and less magical, combined with rising prices. So I had to throw in the towel on WDW, haven't been back since 2015 after about 15-20 years of going annually. Now, I'm focused on DL and some of the other Disney parks around the world.This is the type of thing that I realize makes no difference to me. Each price increase announcement, I say I won't renew my AP because it's too expensive. I can barely make it a year without visiting before I go get another one. I have Signature. I wish the increase would make me not want to buy it again because that would stop me from buying purses and Pandora charms and overpriced Tshirts and sweaters. The cost of the AP is nothing compared to what I spend when I am at the parks.
I do hope that I find a less expensive obsession, but I've tried lots of other things and always end up back at Disneyland. Sigh.
