Went 15 years ago. It was way overpriced then. They charged for almost everything. I was thankful the air was free.

Just curious...what did they charge for that other places don't?

I worked at WDW 40 years ago,,, I’m unhappy with how unkempt it is.. parks require constant maintenance.. I don’t go often but when I’m escorting visitors I see mismatched paint , too many closed rides, good rides replaced with junky “quick fix” replacements just to have something new , lines take up more than 50% of your visit on a good day, there are new procedures in place to minimize waits but it’s too complicated for most people to understand or use it to optimize their visit , parking fees are astronomical (parking is generally free in Orlando) ,, The incompetence that lead to that child being eaten by an aligator last year cost WDW’s insurer $50MM but is indicative of the lack of thought towards the paying customers.

I remember the kids wanted cereal for breakfast and being charged for the cereal and the milk for the cereal. The high cost of everything made an impression on my kids as neither has any interest in ever going back. Near the end I gave them choices about taking the money or playing a simple game and they chose the money.

About three years later a guy I worked with had a wedding there and he felt the same way. Would not go back.

Last theme park I went to was white water and they had a special deal that allowed one to go to head of line if you pay quite a bit more. Would not go back either.

I don’t know that they charge for anything that other places don’t - but they charge a hell of a lot for everything. In my experience they are way pricier than other similar parks. And the other parks are expensive to begin with.
