18% of Fans Can’t Stand This Major Disney World Change

In case you missed it, Disney World is getting even more expensive.

Magic Kingdom

Four big changes were announced recently that could affect your wallet on your next Disney World trip. We’ve seen price increases on food, Memory Maker, Annual Passes, and parking. Since this directly affects our readers, we wanted to ask them what they thought about one in particular increase and we got the results.

The cost to park at any of the four Disney World theme parks has gone up. This includes parking at Magic KingdomEPCOTDisney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Here’s a breakdown of the price increases:

  • Standard parking (car or motorcycle): $30 per day — was previously $25 per day
  • Preferred parking (car or motorcycle): $45, $50, or $55 per day (pricing is seasonal and varies by date) — was previously $45 to $50 per day
  • Oversized vehicle parking (Shuttle, Limo, Camper Trailer, RV, Bus, or Tractor Trailer): $35 per day — was previously $30 per day


If you are not staying at Disney Resort or a Good Neighbor hotel, or are not an Annual Passholder, you’ll have to pay to park your vehicle at the Disney Parks. So we asked our readers about this new price increase over on Instagram to see how they felt. After an hour, 37% said they were not stressing about it at all, 45% said I’m only using WDW transportation, and 18% agreed it was their last straw with Disney.

Within an hour results

The final results were about the same as the initial. Our 36% of readers said they weren’t stressing and 46% said they are only using WDW transportation. But 18% of our readers are not happy about the recent change and say it is the last straw for them.
