Getting rid of free parking at the hotels is such a tight move lol.

I gotta admit, even in here which is a fan site, you are hearing more and more bad reviews, but the constant ripping off of their customers doesnít look good.

It was always very expensive, but I used to say it was still worth it, but now it seems the experience isnít living up the prices.

Exactly this. WDW has always been expensive but you felt you had value for your spend. Now I am hard pressed to see the value for my money at WDW

Itís the reason we have dropped it. You either pay the prices or you donít. We wonít, others will.

I was chatting with my now grown up lad, when they were younger I used to buy 14 day tickets for Disney and the 14 day flex ticket, Universal, SeaWorld wet and wild and Busch. I was the sole wage earner and buying 5 tickets.

As you say it wasn't cheap but affordable and doable, you could pretty much do a park a day too.

Just looked and it would be the best part of £5k today and you would struggle to get around all the parks in 2 weeks. A shame but while the parks are still so busy it ain't going to get cheaper 😟

Thank god a Disney holiday is now out of reach of the middle classes (and, I assume, has long been out of reach of all the lower class oiks).

Imagine how busy WDW would be if it was affordable to everyone!

Also, it must mean all the DIBBers who have visited recently must be upper class toffs.

BTW, I think the Daily Mail must have been scammed if they paid $3780 for a 4 night stay at a Disney value resort.

Congrats on the wedding and it must be nice to have your honeymoon at Disney.

What is putting you off returning? We are still debating Disney or Universal for our August trip

When we came back in 2019 the extra magic hours meant we could be in some of the parks for 6:30-7, done by 10 and leisurely enjoy the rest of our day, now we canít get in as early and are stuck queuing an hour and sometimes more for a 30 second experience and it just doesnít seem worth it anymore.

That along with food prices, and how busy it is.

The past 5 times weíve stayed at Disney so I understand we are feeling the difference more so compared to guests who stay offsite and didnít have those benefits anyway.

Itís good! Itís just not that good anymore.

James is 8, and I think we enjoyed our universal day the most so far. Could be something to think about in the future but I think we will tour the rest of the world now.
