In a statement made to CNN, Disney responded to its recent price hikes that have affected multiple potential Guests and priced them out.
Disney fans have been on the receiving end of price hike after price hike recently. The Walt Disney Company announced a number of price increases from the Genie+ prices, to ticket price increases, to price increases for specific rides, and that’s just some of them. Fans have been incredibly frustrated at this and many have voiced these online as well, taking their revenge on .
While all this was happening, Disney reportedly stayed mum about fans’ reactions to this. But now there is a report of their official statement after the price hikes have been announced as told to CNN.
Despite these increases, it’s also reported by CNN that Guests are still making their way to the Disney Parks—Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park in Disneyland Resort in and Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom in the Walt Disney World Resort in Central Florida — in droves.
Furthermore, CNN reported that a Disney official instead described the situation as,
“The positive outcome of a strategy that prioritizes the guest experience. When we focus on delivering a world-class experience, we know our guests will spend more time with us immersed in our stories.”
It’s important to note that while the cheapest price for a Disneyland ticket has stayed at $104.00 since 2019, there are now fewer days in the year when that price is available.
It’s unclear what the purpose of these price increases from Disney is but it has resulted in many unhappy and Disney fans, even though the Parks are reportedly the most crowded that some have seen in a while, with surpassing a lot of what Guests have seen.
Here’s looking to both some more clarity on this situation and Disney catering to more of the fans who would love the opportunity to visit a Disney Park, and enjoy a day at a Theme Park.
