View Full Version : Historically speaking, how much to rack rates go up every year?

I'm trying to figure out how much vacations will be in 10 years, and I've calculated rack rates going up 4% per year. Is this realistic? TIA!

0% to 10% (went up twice that year)

Over the course of 10-20 years, I think 4% may be somewhat on the low side. I'd calculate more like 5-6%.

The increases have been steeper in the last year or two than the preceding 3 or 4 years, but averaged over about 10 years it's probably close to what you're coming up with.

Historic figures are a little difficult with WDW resorts, because they're adding them so quickly and because only 3 or 4 resorts go back to the beginning.
