Are Disney's higher ticket prices setting a bad precedent?
Written by Erik Yates
Walt Disney World has raised its prices for yet a second time this year, pushing the price to over sixty dollars for a single day base ticket admission. Polls all over have indicated that people dont want to pay the price, but yet people still flock to that park in record numbers despite rising gas prices and cost of living increases. With two raises in price in a year will disney see a bottom of this barrel and end up paying the price with a sudden drop in attendance? Can the other parks afford to do the same thing? For example in Orlando you have two other parks, as well as Busch Gardens in Tampa. They have all raised prices this year, it seems only because disney has done it. Should they raise prices, or should they take the more business like approach and not only keep prices the same, but capitlize that disney keeps raising prices. Eventually gas will get so high that people wont be able to afford to go to the big parks.Tweet
