How Do You Fit $4 Gas Into A Theme Park Ticket...
Well, it appears the rising cost of a barrel of oil/a gallon of gas has trickled down to a day of admission at a Disney theme park...
Disney always raises prices as does every corporation when it comes to the cost of doing business, but it normally doesn't raise them year over year. It usually takes closer to two years between increases.
Not this time. With the global economy needing more oil(particularly China and India), rising competition and America's lack of resolve to drill for more, the cost of oil goes up...
And so does a ticket into the American parks:
Walt Disney World ticket prices
Adults $75(up $4), Children $63(up $3).
Disneyland ticket prices
Adults $69(up $3), Children $59(up $3).
