Dollars and sense?

Last September, we ran a Practical Traveller item called “Mickey plus Minnie = more money.” A year later, it’s time to run that kind of item again. Disney World in Florida has raised its rates once more. A one-day, one-park admission ticket is now US$85, a one-day, park-hopper ticket is US$120 and a one-day, water-park fun and more ticket is US$140, all plus tax for ages 10 plus. Universal has also raised its one-day, one-park admission ticket to US$85 and one-day, two-park ticket to US$120 for the same age group. Does raising single-day tickets so ridiculously really make discounted, multi-day or week-long tickets more attractive? Not to us; more days at a park means more money on food, souvenirs etc. It does make the tickets at the new, world’s-largest Legoland in Florida more attractive, however. Scheduled to open on October 15, the 50-million, Lego-brick park will be the fifth of its kind in the world. One-day tickets will be US$65 for ages 13 and up and US$55 for kids three to 12, and seniors 60 plus. florida.legoland.com.
