As I’m sure some of you have heard the rumors by now, and Yup! they’re true. Walt Disney World Resort has increased the prices to the MYW (Magic Your Way) tickets as well as all AP (Annual Passes) for both Tourist and Florida Residents.
Now I know some of you are saying “Ridiculous” or “Seriously?!” and I understand your frustrations. Some of you felt that the prices were already high enough, but let me explain to you a little bit of how I see the justification in this increase. The prices reflect the high quality and multitude of experiences offered at the Walt Disney World Resort. The money goes into the ongoing commitment to invest in the parks. Without the investment there wouldn’t be a New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom, the soon to be New Avatar Experience at Animal Kingdom, the New Grand Floridian Villas at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and the soon to be built Polynesian Villas at the Polynesian Resort and so much more. In my opinion, it’s all worth every penny.
With that said, here are the price changes that are already in affect as of Sunday February 23rd, 2014
