Earning My Ears
- May 23, 2019
So.. We started planning tentatively for next year since they released the dates yesterday. Going 2020, most likely staying at a Moderate or Value (that's typical for our family when we don't have a lot of people going). I "price my vacation" yesterday for 4 adults and a 2 y.o. and my jaw dropped. Essentially no matter what dates I put in for Spring of 2020, Value prices have skyrocketed to Moderate prices, essentially pricing my family out of Moderate. Now, I don't mind value resorts and have stayed at most of them but because we are usually one of those "it's just where you sleep" families as we don't hang at the resort often during our vacation. I'm just annoyed at the now lack of options to stay under 6,000.00 dollars as we are big fans of the quick service dining plan and always include it. Even pricing our stay at some of the usual lower priced Moderate resorts is baffling. We are young and in our early-late 20's so we like to have our Disney vacations without it breaking the bank. Now instead of going Spring 2020 we are thinking of pushing it to the fall just to have time to pay for it. I am worried that like most things, Disney is now becoming out of reach for the middle class. I'm not stupid, I know that WDW is out of reach for a lot of Americans and there are many people that only go once in their lives but as I try to go as often as I like, I'm worried Disney just might continue to go up and price us right out of the option to go to WDW for Vacation. Am I the only one here? What does everyone else think?
