Disneyland eyes surge-pricing for admission

If you've used the ride-sharing service Uber, hopefully, you're aware of the surge pricing.

Surge pricing is in effect when there is a high demand for rides and fewer drivers available.

Now other industries are eyeing the surge style price-model, including the happiest place on earth.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Walt Disney Parks and Resorts have floated the idea of charging surge-pricing during popular times.

Annual-pass holders received the survey; the parks have not decided whether to implement the plan.

The survey says that there would be a three-tiered pricing system; gold, silver, or bronze.

Gold tickets could be used every day of the year, Silver could be used every day except peak and popular holiday weeks, and bronze tickets would only be used on off-peak times.

In one of the scenarios, the survey priced the tickets at $115 for gold, $105 for silver, and $99 for bronze.
