    On average, what is the percentage that vacation packages go up year to year?

    Hi William,

    Walt Disney World is the Most Magical Place on Earth, but unfortunately is still not immune to inflation or cost increases from the outside world. Each year rates go up slightly to adjust for these outside factors and continue to provide the best customer experience possible.

    As someone who visits regularly, I would say that year over year you can expect a slight increase to keep up with these rising prices and economic change. When planning a 2024 vacation, I would assume a slight increase over what was paid for a trip in 2024 if you are using that as a comparison. For example, hotel room night prices have gone up year over year by about $20 or less per night in the typical rooms that I stay in. This is not significant but for someone planning a trip on a budget, I can see how this would add up. Luckily there are lots of options for booking a Disney World vacation that fit into every budget. 

    If you are looking to decrease the price you pay for that 2025 vacation try taking a look at Value Resort Hotels or Moderate Resort Hotels which will come in at a lower price point than the Deluxe Resorts and Villas. I also recommend adding the Disney dining plans so you know ahead of time exactly how much money you are going to spend on food and that cost doesn't get away from you. It is so easy to just swipe a card when you are in the moment and the Disney dining plans give you that feeling of freedom without the worry of accidentally going over budget. One of the great things about staying at a Disney resort hotel is that transportation is included so that is one less thing you need to worry about paying for! 

    Since theme park tickets are now date-based, you can also save money by being flexible with your travel dates. The beauty of this is that when ticket prices are lower it is also typically a less busy time of the year to visit so wait times will be lower!

    Happy Planning
