If you're planning to visit Walt Disney World this weekend, go tomorrow before prices increase


  • eBay

We told you in January that tickets for Walt Disney World parks were expected to increase sometime in February – according to multiple outlets, the new prices go into effect on Sunday, Feb. 22. Tickets for the Magic Kingdom will rise from $99 to $105, and tickets to Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom will be $99. 

A $6 increase won't break the bank – if you can afford to pay $99 to get into the park before, you can probably afford $105 now. But at what point does it simply become unreasonable for the average family to go to the Happiest Place on Earth? If you can afford $105 in 2016, you can probably afford $110 in 2016, right? And maybe $120 in 2017? 

Tell us in the comments below, how much do you think is too much to pay to go to a Disney park? 

Also, how much do you think is too much to pay for a vintage Walt Disney World ticket that you can't even use? Someone is asking $99 for the one on eBay right now.
