  1. I just made a reservations this morning for the Illuminatiosn dinner package at The Rose & Crown, I am so excited as it is for my birthday and am so looking forward to a great view of the lagoon and sipping a bevy while watching Illuminations!!!

  2. Just Curious…I made dinner reservations in December for our February visit. I was hoping to snag a spot on the patio as we usually do; is this no longer an option?, If we do not take part in the prefix will we have to sit inside? Will certain areas still be available to dine with regular reservations?

    Thanks

    1. More than likely that will be the case. I’m surprised it took them this long to find a way to make money off of something that was always free.

  3. These prices are crazy. A family of four (husband, wife and 2 kids) would pay $240.00 before tax and tip. That is insane for any middle-class family on a budget. I would not even spend that if I was millionaire. You could go to Capital Grille for probably less than that and have an incredible meal.

    1. I truly think that the corporate morons at Disney are trying to turn the Disney Parks into “The Greediest Place On Earth”, only for the wealthy. Here’s a perfect example: We’re from the west coast, so usually go to Disneyland. We are going to go to Disney World, this summer, and started making plans. As a way, to save money, we’re going to upgrade our Disneyland annual pass, to the Premier pass, so we can use it at WDW, also. It was going to cost us $400, per pass, for the upgrade, for a total of $1200, which was cheaper than adding length of stay passes to our hotel stay. However, due to corporate Disney’s greedy price increases, the cost of the upgrade now doubles, from $1200 to $2400. Their greed has instantly added 1200 more dollars, to our vacation cost, overnight. We are only a family of three. I can’t even imagine how a middle class family of five, can even afford to go to WDW, any more. Sadly, I imagine people are going way into debt, just to fulfill their family dream of spending a week or two in Walt Disney World. I have been visiting Disney Parks, since the 1970s, but at the rate that Disney keeps raising prices, I may soon have to consider cheaper alternatives for family vacations.

      1. I went on my last Disney vacation in December. It was absolutely unreal how much the prices had increased. We had a character breakfast for 2 on the first day and we laid down a hundred dollar bill for the meal plus tip. Ridiculous! I then had to start cancelling some of our other table service meals that we love because of that ONE meal. We were going to eat at Rainforest while at AK but decided to do a budget meal at one of the counter service places. He got an adult meal with a desert, and I got a kids meal and a desert….$42!!!! It was such a miserable trip that I wanted to leave a day early. I have gone at LEAST once or twice a year since 1998. It WAS my happy place. Next week I’m going on my second ever cruise. Total price for my 5 day cruise to the Bahamas from Charleston….drumroll….$460. That will get you almost a day and a half at WDW these days.
