  1. Truth be told, I wish they would raise the prices to the point that it reduced attendance by about 50%. I would rather pay double the amount and actually be able to enjoy Disney World without being crushed to death by crowds. Even at a greater cost, it would be more cost effective to actually be able to ride all the rides, when I wanted to ride them and eat where I wanted to eat, when I wanted to eat during a vacation. So keep raising those prices Disney.

    1. I have to agree. Many of the younger visitors seem to fail to understand what Disney is about and their behaviour can be, at times, appalling. Disney vacations is not a right and there are too many entitled guests these days,which leads to the bad behaviour. Carry on raising the prices Disney, it’s still great value as I didn’t get to visit any Disney Park until adulthood after dreaming about it all my life and I appreciate how lucky I am to be there even on my 20th visit.

    2. Maybe it’s easier for you to come up with the extra money but those of us who are on a fixed income, find it harder. We try to make the best of our time at the parks by avoiding popular times. I agree it is getting busier but people who want to come, will find the extra money.

      1. Joan, I understand exactly what your saying. Sad, but there just aren’t any non-crowed times anymore. It’s a choice of crowded, very crowded, and insane. And I know it’s hard for anyone not having been spoiled by Disney World in the 80’s and early 90’s to believe it when we say that we literally had the parks to ourselves many, many times. For years, during first couple weeks in September, there literally were no lines to any rides. We could get on one of the mountains, for example, and ride several times without leaving our seat. I have a picture of my family standing on Main Street looking down towards the castle and there is not another person in the picture. So, it is kind of unfair for us old timers to complain. But anyone who has ever experienced Disney that way, would gladly pay more for half the crowds. It’s is a truly amazing experience.

        In fact, we need an “old timers” forum where us grumpy’s can relive our Disney glory days without ruining it for all the new Disney Fans.

    3. Raise prices? Seriously, so only the super rich can go? No thanks. You can deal with crowds by taking advantage of the 3 fast passes or doing magic hours. And if you have money to burn, just buy a private tour and get back-doored on the rides and leave us poor people alone!

        1. I consider poor-people who are on a fixed income, or living paycheck to paycheck, minimum wage workers, and or in credit card debt. So when you talk about raising prices 50% more to cut down on crowds you shut out the lower income people from going at all. Plus Disney needs crowds to sell merchandise, food, and keep the people working there in their jobs. Having the parks empty is bad business for them. But if you really want an empty park, you could rent it out like the Kardashians do. LOL
