USA Today: Walt Disney World hikes single-day tickets to $89
Attn Milepointers: Let's go down there and kick Mickey's butt.
I suspect at those prices I'll never again visit Disney World or Land or any of the other parks.
That reminds me of when I said I'd never apply for another CC after Chase charged me a bunch of fees. Here I am, one BA Visa, two SWRR Visas, and an HHonors AMEX (and hundred of thousands of points) later.
Disney's magical pull will always bring you back, no matter how much you want to resist.
It hasn't for about 21 years. You're just weak
awww.... you're right.
The Premier Pass (annual pass for both Disneyland and Disney World) went up to $876.54. The annual pass I normally get for just Disney World increased to $611.31. It's a lot for just one person. I can't imagine what it's like to buy the whole family their tickets.
It helps those who need to meet their minimum spend on new credit cards, I suppose
Yeah, I think the key for me is that my aunt works for Disney in Orlando, so any time my wife and I visit, we just have her hook us up with tickets.
I probably wouldn't pony up the cash for the tickets otherwise.
You know, you've got a good point there.
One word for that - LUCKY!
I have an premium annual pass to Disney World but I get a pretty good discount on it as I'm a DVC member. About $150 off. But regardless it is getting expensive and it's only for me and Mrs. Perryplatypus! After you count in the hotel, rising airline tickets and the cost food at the parks it's becomes pretty pricey. But this summer they will pack in 130,000 guests or more a day at all 4 parks at Disney World. I'm really amazed how larger families can afford it!
It is crazy...I know I often see Disney trying to sell what look like pretty good deals to WDW in the UK.
OK, here is how it works with old uncle 2soonold.
Yes I would pay to take a child, but ...
if you are too old to believe in Santa Claus; you have out grown Disney.
I just went to Disney HKG, and it was less than $50. Of course it's smaller than any other one, but still okay. I think if people want to go, especially if they have kids, they will pony the money up.
As if these parks aren't already making a killing as it is! Has anyone heard any reports of them falling on hard times and needing to raise prices in order to remain profitable? I don't think so. Not that there's anything inherently wrong with raising prices, especially when they know people will still pay, but this just sounds like pure greed to me.
You're never too old for Disney
I definitely am too old. "hey, get off my lawn, damn it!"
I have to agree. Until a couple of years ago, I hadn't been to Disney since I was a teen. Didn't really have too much interest in going back, but was convinced to take a "family" trip with my parents and siblings. Well, I had a blast, and will definitely go back again at some point. We got our tix through AAA, which gives a discount for the theme parks. While still expensive, they're cheaper than buying them at the parks themselves.
So Disney reflects the world in a way, with nearly everything getting more expensive, so does the dreamworld of Disney, this has to be stranger than fiction, or does Disney emulate the real world and gets soaked up into it?
BTW.....I'm always surprised on how reliable people are these days to pony up more and more of their bucks for things without opposition.
DVC Member over here as well. Luckily they increased the DVC discount as well, all in all, think it costs us about 6$ more this year (regular pass).
No interest in visiting Disney. I have two daughters, 10 and 12. They have no interest in visiting Disney. I asked them about it once and they rolled their eyes. They're really into our trip to Malaysia, Burma, Thailand, and Cambodia this summer, however.
I love my kids.
You spoiled them, it seems
I never went as a kid, no interest. My first trip was when I was 32.
As someone above said, I really liked it. I go back every year or two. Enough that I bought 225 DVC points (they had me at what?! you have a club and there's points?!)
