Summer Fun in Reno, Pahrump & Las Vegas

Disney just announced that they are raising their annual pass prices starting as early as this Sunday. According to the LA Times, ticket prices can increase by as much as 30 percent, “The biggest increase will hit people who buy the premium annual pass that includes parking. The pass increases to $649 on Sunday from $499 previously …”

Will these prices combined with high gas prices be enough to keep you closer to home this summer? Las Vegas is a destination playground for adults, but it is also full of fun events and activities for the whole family.
