If you have a lot of time and money, you can take a really exclusive Disney adventure.
Fans of Walt Disney (DIS) – Get The Walt Disney Company Report theme parks are accustomed to making a large investment to visit the Disney World Resort in Florida, Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., or any other of its parks around the world.
Visiting a Disney Park has become a luxury excursion that middle-class families either need to save for or go into debt to experience.
The lowest price of admission for a one-day ticket at either a Disneyland or Disney World park is $109, but that doesn’t include parking if you’re driving. Guests can save some money with a multi-day Park Hopper, but it’s still going to cost you much more than a single-day admission.
Disney World suspended its annual pass program for the general public, but charged $1,299 before pausing the program. Disneyland offers four levels of its replacement for annual passes, Magic Keys, with the highest price at $1,399.
For wealthier people, guests can pay a premium to enjoy a VIP experience in a VIP Tour. Groups of up to 10 people can pay $425 to $850 and hour at Disney World parks, not including park admission, for a customized day at a park. And for the ultimate overnight stay at Disney World, guests with plenty of cash or extra limits on their credit cards can book a two-day experience at Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser for $4,809 for two people and $5,999 for a party of four.
Travelers can also choose any number of Disney Cruises that range in price from $1,086 for a three-day cruise to Baja California from San Diego for two guests to $3,968 for two on a seven-night Western Europe Cruise.
