So my wife did a comparison of the amount we paid a few years ago to go to DLR for 8 days to what that would cost us this year or the next and it is completely awful. we paid about $1100 for 8 days with all the 'good stuff' included in 2008. it would have been only 80 bucks more at the time to add an additional 4 days to our trip since we were staying so long.
Now, just for a 4 day trip would be $1019. The cost has doubled? And without any extras..
I think its pretty ridiculous when they know we will be buying stuff there left and right, so why boost the entry so much? That only means that, if we go, we wont spend as long there and we wont be buying as much.
I realize that Disney has a big bill to pay in the huge project in DCA and they probably wont suffer that much in regards to attendance but, its the little guys down here that wont be able to afford this. I'm as blue collar as it gets and when we go to Disneyland, we go all-out since we live in Northern California and dont get to go very often and we save up all year for it. At this rate, its only the elite that will be able to afford to get in.
