Some Disney Parks Guests shared that they felt “higher prices” were the only solution to the crowds in the Disney Parks.
The Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort are known to be two of the best places to have that quintessential Disney experience. Each Disney Resort with its Theme Parks, Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World, and Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure in Disneyland Resort are beloved by Guests.
But off-late, many issues have been reported at the Disney Parks, be that Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort. Rides have been reported to be breaking down more often, Guests have felt the Disney experience isn’t up to par, and many times, Guests even complain about fellow Park-goers’ behavior.
This time, however, while u/Small_World88 took to Reddit to share a similar frustration with the crowds at the Disney Parks in the Disneyland Resort subreddit, a rare solution was presented. It was even more surprising because of the source.
Disney fan u/realdawnerd said, “The only answer to crowds is higher prices. You can’t have both a park everyone wants to visit and low prices but also not packed.”
The Disney Parks have seen a ridiculously-high demand lately, especially since they began reopening and resuming their operations post the pandemic. Disney has also, on multiple counts, mentioned that they keep increasing their prices to maintain the standard of the Disney experience Guests have come to expect. Disney has attempted to control crowds through its Park Reservation system, but it’s clear that the capacity has increased quite a bit, and this has led to significant crowds flooding the Parks, especially over the last year.
It’s indeed surprising to hear a Disney fan share they want to see any further price increase considering that most fans have been increasingly fed up with the constant uptick in pricepoint for a Disney vacation, and with the recent ticket price increase, price changes to Disney Genie+, and more.
