Why Is Walt Disney World So Expensive? And Things You Can Do To Make WDW A Cheaper Vacation

We’ve said it time and time again – going to Walt Disney World is an EXPENSIVE vacation and it seems to become more expensive every time you turn around. It wasn’t always like that, though. In fact, until the early-to-mid-1990s or so, price increases for tickets, hotels, etc. generally only happened once a year (as opposed to the “1 or 2 times a year” we’ve seen in recent years) and they were only moderate increases, at that.

Have you ever wondered why they made such a shift in price increases during that time frame? I have. And fortunately, I dug around a bit and think I found out why…

The sad thing is that video was originally made about 2 years ago, and things have only gotten worse, price-wise. And PEOPLE STILL PAY IT!

What can you do to make a WDW vacation cheaper?

Lots of stuff. Depending on your priorities when it comes to going to Disney (i.e. where you’re willing to stay, how many days you tend to go per year, etc.), you could potentially save hundreds of dollars, if not more.

Check out this post to see different ways you can save money on:

  • Flights
  • Food
  • Hotel
  • Rental car
  • Tickets

Disney never gets cheaper and its price increases are oftentimes more than the annual cost of living wage increases.  Hopefully, the tips on saving money will help you continue to go, or possibly go in the first place.
