Most of the other tickets are going up too – the 5 day ticket will increase 5.9% and the 7 day will go up 8.1%. My annual pass will go up 2%.

A family of five – 2 adults and 3 children – would pay $407 for one day at WDW. And that doesn’t include hopping, so if they want to visit more than one park it would cost more. And if one of the kids was over 9 it would be more. And if anyone wanted to buy food or souvenirs…
