Should Disneyland Tickets Have Tax?

entranceOC Register has an article discussing a 20 year pact that Anaheim and Disney has on tickets not being charged a tax (the article is found here).  But, this next year the ban could be lifted.  The article explains that the ban was enacted as part of a pact that Disney had to improve a lot of the public areas of Anaheim surrounding the parks during their expansion of the resort to include Disney California Adventure.  It is a debate on whether to enact the tax or not.  A tax could help build revenue for the city.  But, it could stifle some business for the parks.

Anaheim could use the money to improve the city.  Though it does get some revenue, it would help a lot of services.  On the other hand, a tax would make another price increase on top of possible Disney price increases.  It could hurt the pockets of guests who want to venture to the vacation spot.

Florida’s ticket prices include a tax, and it does stay comparable to Disneyland’s currently.  It’s possible that Disney’s price increases may not be as drastic to help the pockets of guests.

My opinion is to not have the tax, but to have the city find other ways to get revenue.  Anaheim has the Disney resort and a lot of other great businesses like it.  There must be more ways to get the revenue that wouldn’t hurt the vacation business as much.  It’s possible that the tax percentage would be low, but the place that it will hurt the most is Annual Passes.
