That’s right, folks. With immediate effect, the cost to visit the place “Where Dreams Come True” has risen to even greater heights.
Are you looking for a one-day ticket to the Magic Kingdom? $119. And, that’s the “regular” price! Do you need it during a peak season? $122!

What is our response? Well, Mrs. All in WDW and I might have been ahead of the game for once. Late last month, our Annual Passes were due for renewal.

Are we the only ones who feel this way? Not at all. Check out John Peters and Doug Davis as they dropped into the Main Street Pub yesterday to rant about this sad news. Catch that excitement at …
