If you thought planning a vacation to Walt Disney World is expensive, wait till you see the ticket costs anticipated for 2031.
Koala, a firm that connects visitors with timeshare properties and resorts, has finished a data analysis that monitored ticket price hikes at the “Most Magical Place on Earth” from its inception in 1971.
Now, as the theme park behemoth prepares to commemorate 50 years in Florida, we’re getting a glimpse at the “Future of Disney Parks,” and the possible pricing may surprise you.
A one-day (non-park hopper) ticket to Disney World will cost $253.20 in ten years, according to the corporation. A far cry from the $3.50 admission fee that park-goers paid in 1971.
However, there are certain external considerations to consider.
First, there’s inflation, which implies that $3.50 is now more precisely $22.61. Take into account the time period, that entry used to not include rides and attractions, and that three parks and numerous more experiences have been added to the resort since Walt Disney World debuted.
If Koala’s estimates are correct, the Florida theme park will become “the most costly Disney resort in the world.” But how did we arrive to the possibility of a 7134.24% rise in ticket prices by 2031?
According to the firm, it analyzed the year-by-year rise in admission to Disney World when it debuted in 1971 and applied it across a decade. According to Koala, Disney’s ticket prices have risen 7.4% on average each year.
“Prices here have risen the most out of any other Disney theme park globally,”
the company wrote.
It’s unclear if the data analysis took into account that Disney does provide ticket discounts for multi-day bookings or that the cost of each visit varies depending on which day you visit the theme park.
According to Koala’s estimates, a family of four visiting the Magic Kingdom for one day would have to pay $1,012.80 in addition to meals, transportation, a hotel stay, and goods.
The research raises the question, “Is it worth it?” Some Disney fans will most certainly say “yes,” while others may be more hesitant to arrange a vacation.
