Hi Stacy - Thanks for your initial post. I have always wanted to go to Disney but never had the
opportunity. I live in Florida and was unaware of the discounted park passes. I am going to take
advantage of those discounts from now on. This direct price discrimination strategy also makes it
possible for residents of low-income families to visit Disney's theme park. However, this does
cause me to think of nonresidents viewing this strategy as unfair. "In conclusion, this article
clearly indicates that the prices offered to the consumer and those offered to others affect the
formation of unfairness perception, negative emotions, internal reference price, and store choice"
(Wu et al., 2012, p.113).
