My family loves Disney World.
We have gone almost annually for most of my life. It's where our family gathers from across the country to reconnect and enjoy a little magic. Some of my earliest memories are of "the ball" at Epcot Center and the Small World ride at the Magic Kingdom. That's why when I heard Disney was raising their already astronomical prices of admission, I felt betrayed. It's already crazy expensive to make this vacation happen, I do not want the prices to go up any higher. Sign my petition if you want to tell Disney not to raise their price of admission.
Prices are going up
about 18% across the board. Wages in this country are not, making this magical vacation completely out of reach for most families.
I understand that Disney is spending a lot of money to keep their parks in good condition, but it seems like some people at the top of the Disney corporate ladder could take a financial loss rather than the hard working families who come to Disney to connect.
As my family has grown and siblings have gotten married and had kids, our Disney trips have become even more important for keeping our family together. But it's already a stretch to pay for yourself, a spouse and children to go to Disney. This increase in price will make it all but impossible, and now my nieces and nephews will never know the joys of Disney that I grew up with.
My mom is the ultimate Disney grandma, each of me and my sisters, step sisters and sisters-in-law have our own Disney princess and all the grandkids are being raised on Disney movies and stories. I want to make sure this stays possible for my nieces and nephews and my mom. Please sign my petition to tell Disney not to raise their prices and keep their magical worlds just a little bit more accessible to hard working families.
