  • Disney just raised the admission prices. It's gotten crazy!

  • I hear ya- then you add in the costs of food, drinks, & souvenirs & you need to cash in your kid's college fund or sell a kidney to afford the trip! :p I want to take the fam to Chicago next summer & see a game at Wrigley field while we're there. Tickets for the 4 of us will be about $100/ea & Lord only knows how much a beer & pretzel will cost! I don't know how families can afford to do trips that aren't camping or stay-cations any more.  :/

  • We looked for my family of seven to go and stay at Disney it was over 8 grand, Its not worth it to me. We went in California and honestly it wasn't all that, even he small rides were a hour long wait. No thanks.

  • We've never been. Isn't there deals and packages that make it cheaper?

  • We went, and had to travel from Michigan to do so...yeah, our kids ended up with the swine flu (the year that went around!). Freakin great. And no, I don't think it was worth it. It was fun to go, and I think the kids would have had more fun if they were feeling well...but Mickey can kiss my ass, too. LOL

  • We are going in November and our stay from 11/2-11/8 is just over $2K (includes 6 nights, 5 days of park hopper tickets for 3, and the quick meal plan).

    It is ridiculously expensive, but I believe it will so very much be worth it!!

  • I wouldn't go back to Disneyland. We take the kids to Knott's Berry Farm and I like it so much better! The rides are great, the lines aren't totally insane, the prices aren't so crazy, and we just enjoy it more.

  • My DH likes to do cheap vacations so I know we'll never to Disney. I'm glad I went there with the Girl Scouts!
