You know how you keep putting your loose change in that jar to help save for your trip to Walt Disney World? Well, start saving more! It looks like the new theme is make money however we can, as WDW begins charging for things that were previously complimentary.
A $15 a day resort fee is being considered to help ‘defray’ the cost of using the pools, Magical Express, and other amenities. So, the question I have is: Is it better to just increase the resort cost to cover these expenses, OR do we prefer the resort fee structure? I’m not sold either way, at this time.
It looks like there may be a Preferred Parking structure at the parks beginning with The Magic Kingdom. I have heard the initial cost will start at and additional $10. I prefer using Disney Transport for this particular park. Now, as it may move to the other parks, I guess it depends on how far from the entrance, and how frequent the trams are running.
The next thing we know, there will be a cost to FastPass Plus, meals won’t include soft drinks, or even the use of Disney Transport may cost an extra fee to use!
Let me be clear! I LOVE WALT DISNEY WORLD! But, I am having to continually put off the next trip as I try to save all the money I will need to go! I am hoping that the ladies and gentlemen making these decisions will consider how this might impact the overall Guest Experience.
Thanks for reading! Please let me know your thoughts, as well! Have a Blessed and Magical day!
One thought on “Change For WDW”
I am blessed that we have been able to go but it took lots of sacrifices to save for the trips and we are also blessed with higher paying jobs. I see family’s that I work with who are middle class but will never be able to afford a trip as it is now. Not because they don’t want to but because their income only allows for needed things in life. I have a friend who has been saving for 12 years but things like a new roof, flooded basements, etc. have kept them from getting there. We offered to share my parents timeshare at Daytona beach with them this summer so they are going to Magic Kingdom for one day. It’s not how they planned to go but they are excited just for one day. If the price keeps going up less and less families are going to be able to afford it. It makes me sad because I wish every child could experience the wonder and joy of Disney World at least once.
