  1. Every year the price increase comes, and every year the internet blows up in a fury of rants and raves. People incessantly scream about unaffordability and how they’re never going to step foot in a Disney park again. Yet, as inevitable as the increase itself, the people keep going to the parks. Is a visit to the parks expensive? Obviously, and nobody likes paying more for something that was cheaper the day before, but it’s not as earth-shattering as the internet echo chamber would have you believe. The fact is that prices at the parks are comparable to other entertainment and recreation. Look at the price of a Broadway-caliber show, lift tickets in the Rockies, and tickets to an NFL game, just to name a few. The price per hour of going to a Disney park is just as low, if not lower than those. I think people need to get beyond the headlines and look at the big picture: Prices go up. That goes for Disney as well.

  2. We use to do the annual pass as did our daughters family. We went all throughout the year on a whim. We are no longer pass holders and with the crowds being as they are the last few times we went we found we were only able to ride maybe 5 or 6 rides in a 12 hour day.

  3. Totally OK with it. Still a great value. My closest movie theater is up to $13.50 for a two-hour movie. At that rate a full, on-season day at DLP should cost $108. There are ways to save. I save about $15 a trip using my stainless Mickey water container and refilling at the fountains. We buy a big, high-protein breakfast a late, afternoon salad dinner and stay clear of the snack carts. I would love it more if they would put Ragtime Michael back at the Coke Corner and bring back the Billys, but it’s not like there’s nothing to do there.
