Here's Why Families Are Picking Great Wolf Lodge Over Disney

When Magic Kingdom opened in 1971, a single-day admission ticket was $3.50. Someone earning federal minimum wage in 1971 ($1.60 an hour) only needed to work 2.19 hours to pay for admission. 

Fast forward to today, and prices have skyrocketed. A one-day ticket to a single Disney World park varies from $109 to $159 per day, depending on the day.

A minimum wage worker visiting a single Disney World park on the cheapest of days would have to work 15.03 hours to afford admission, an increase of 586% since the park first opened.

92.6% of surveyed Disney World enthusiasts said they believe the cost of a Disney vacation is now out of reach for average families.

What used to be regular vacation for middle-class families has evolved into a luxury trip with pricey add-ons everywhere you look.

68.3% said rampant price increases and nickel and diming have made it feel like Disney World has lost its magic.

That’s why many are leaving The supposedly Happiest Place on Earth for a more carefree, joy-filled, and affordable family vacation.
