BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – One of the most popular tourist attractions in Florida is raising admission prices, as Walt Disney World Resort sets admission to the Magic Kingdom theme park at $95 per ticket for all park guests over 10 years old
Disney’s admission increase announcement came two weeks after Universal Studios increasing its admission prices to tickets for children ages 3 to 9 will be $89 and the price of Disney’s annual pass increased by $35. Orlando’s three major theme parks are contributors to the $30 billion-plus tourism industry that employs thousands of Central Floridians.
According to Orlando Business Journal, Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World combine to contribute to $30 billion-plus tourism industry that employs thousands of central Floridians. Will higher admission prices lead you to spend more money within Brevard County, or will you still spend the same amount of your leisure money at Disney and other attractions ?
