It was calculated that to enjoy everything at Disney World, a world-class amusement park, you would have to spend a whopping $40,000 (about 50 million won) for 6 nights and 7 days.
On the 26th (local time), Bloomberg analyzed that a family of four would need up to $40,000 to travel to Disney World in Orlando, USA for six days.
Disney operates two theme parks in the western United States: Disneyland, located in Anaheim, California, and Disney World, located in Orlando, Florida. Disney World is larger and costs more.
One of the reasons it costs so much money is that the basic ticket price for admission alone is $3,600 (about 4.6 million won), and additional costs are incurred to reduce waiting time in line.
The average waiting time for popular attractions is about 1 hour, and according to the ‘Dynamic Pricing’ method, the longer the line, the more money you have to pay to jump it . If you pay 220 (300,000 won) to 340
dollars (460,000 won) per day, you can save more than 4 hours of time. VIP tickets, which allow you to ride attractions right away without waiting in line, cost $6,300 (approximately 8.53 million won) for one day for the entire family. According to Disney, despite these high prices, about half of visitors still pay.
In addition, customizing a lightsaber from the ‘Star Wars’ series costs $250 per piece, and a costume and styling package that makes you look like a princess is priced at $100 to $180 per person. ‘Character Dining’, where you can dine with representative Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Chip & Dale, costs $35 to $60 per adult and $40 per child, and drinks are separate.
Hotels account for the highest cost. If you choose an expensive room at a hotel located inside a Disney theme park, the cost짱구카지노 주소 of lodging for one week alone will be $26,400 (about 35 million won). If you include meals within the theme park, the cost of food for a week amounts to $3,000 (approximately 4 million won).
Bloomberg said, “$40,000 is the budget of the most luxurious traveler,” but added, “Even in August, which is the off-season due to the hot weather, the lowest cost for 6 days (based on 4 people) is 4,280 when you add up food, lodging, parking tickets, and theme park admission fees. “It comes out to dollars (5.78 million won),” he said. Although the cost is about 10 times lower, it is still difficult to call it cheap.
Bloomberg said, “These high costs are putting a huge burden on American families,” and one 44-year-old said that even after saving for two years, it wasn’t enough to spend a vacation with his family at Disney World, so he had to take out a loan of $5,000 (about 7 million won). The story of a man was introduced.
The problem is that even after the COVID-19 pandemic has passed, customers are reducing spending due to high inflation rates. According to Bloomberg, attendance at Disney theme parks in Orlando is down 15% this year. Ticket prices for peak-season Disney theme parks have nearly doubled in the past decade, according to travel agencies.
Disney executives acknowledged on a recent earnings call that high costs have hurt the company’s bottom line, saying, “Everyone vacations differently, so we’re looking at ways to offer more affordable options.” revealed.
