18 Jul How Much Does a Disney Vacation Cost?
Disney has become a household name over the last hundred or so years. Way back when, Walt Disney had a dream to create a place where families could have fun together. He and his brother Roy worked together and created many beloved and wholesome films. Those movies, among other classics, then became the inspiration and theme the original Disney Park was based around. Disneyland in Anaheim, California opened in 1955. Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida has now been open for over fifty years since 1971. If you haven’t been to either, you surely know someone who has. But how much does a Disney vacation cost these days? Prices have gone up a surprising amount over the last few years especially. Let’s take a look at the price of an average Disney vacation and what it entails.
How Much Does a Disney Vacation Cost?
First, let’s talk about the basic costs. You’ll of course need a hotel room. Then tickets for Disney Parks are probably a must. There is a lot to do at Walt Disney World Resort that isn’t going to a park, like visiting the shopping and dining district Disney Springs or recreation rentals at many resorts. However, the parks are the main draw so we’ll assume you’re buying tickets to go to Magic Kingdom Park and probably all of the other three as well so we’ll include a park hopper addition. Then there’s food. While tickets aren’t as flexible in pricing, there’s a base price and some add-ons, restaurant and hotel choices can greatly affect the price of your Disney trip. We’ll price out these basics in early 2023 and see what a starting point is, not including food, for a middle of the range resort at a moderately busy time of year.
For weeklong stay for two adults and two children, from February 6th through the 13th, staying at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort Riverside, including four, six day park hopper tickets the price is $5,063.80.
This is a base Disney vacation price and doesn’t include Disney Genie+ which replaced the former complimentary FastPass system and is $15 per person, per day. This feature is paid for on the day of your park visit. You’ll also need to consider getting from and to the airport if you’re flying though Walt Disney World does have complimentary resort wide transportation once you arrive. This price above also doesn’t include food. The Disney Dining Plan hasn’t returned since the 2020 closure. This part of a Disney vacation package allowed guests to prepay for meals and dine on a credit system. At this time, there is no prepaid dining. Florida is so very hot and you’ll need to plan for drinks throughout the day as well to stay hydrated. There are also two water parks, a Cirque du Soleil show and other neat add-ons, like an amphicar ride at Disney Springs restaurant The Boathouse, that you might want to include. This price above doesn’t account for magical extras like souvenirs either which you’ll surely end up getting. Minnie ears? A castle t-shirt? There’s a little something for everyone.
