Disney Prices Climbing Higher Than Magic Mountain

If you’re planning a family trip this season to one of the Disney parks, be prepared to spend a lot of money. Your travel4seniors.com editor’s memories of our very first trip to the Florida park in the mid 70s, just a few years after its debut.

An adult day pass then was $5, lunch $7, hotel room $30. With ever-rising prices, today’s visit would cost at least $100, $30 and $250. Also, ticket pricing and other charges vary according to expected crowds. It will be more expensive during heavy attendance dates, such as holidays, spring break and summer months.

When planning your visit, be sure to first scan internet offers from Disney and other travel sources. Look for the most economical times, special deals and other ways to reduce the ever-rising costs as much as possible.
