Well Disney has done it again, just as expected.
They have increased their prices. But they also increased their annual pass prices. This is after they issued a massive increase on them last year.
We just bought Platinum Passes a couple of weeks ago and our cost was $1119.00 (plus tax) and now the price is $1195.00 (plus tax.)
Disney Platinum Pass Plus is now 1,295.00 (plus tax) up from 1,219.00 (plus tax)
Now I am hearing that the daily passes have also increased, but that is harder to see as Walt Disney World does that system where prices depend upon the date.
Florida Residents are also getting some Annual Pass increases:
Platinum Plus and Platinum seem to be staying the same prices at $999 and $899 respectively.
- Gold has gone from $699 to $719.
- Silver has gone from $519 to $539.
- Theme Park Select is $439.
- Weekday Select has gone from $349 to $369
- Epcot After 4 has gone from $309 to $319
This is no where near the increase we saw last summer, but people had already said they will no longer renew after the last increase and they just raised it again!
When is it enough? Disney just had an earnings report where they were bragging about the increase in Parks spending. YES of course there was because they keep raising prices on everything.
As soon as the economy takes any dip they are going to be the ones that feel it because if people have to choose between paying for their mortgage, medicine, school, etc. or going to Walt Disney World, they aren’t going to pick Disney.
What do you think?
Comment and let us know.
