Disney Theme Parks Surprisingly Empty this Summer as Ticket Prices Remain High


Disney theme parks are surprisingly empty this summer as ticket prices remain high.

Walt Disney World and Disneyland have seen a significant decrease in wait times to get on rides – a clear indicator that there are less and less guests visiting the parks this year, according to a report.

Information from the analysis from Touring Plans shows less people are choosing to visit the US parks, as well as its competitors.

Not great news for Disney, which is currently in the middle of a $5.5 billion cost-cutting scheme – causing layoffs.

Touring Plans brought together data to compare the average waiting time for rides and rollercoasters at the four Disney parks in Orlando.

Back in 2019, the typical wait time was 47 minutes.

Post-pandemic, in 2022, the wait time shrunk down to 31 minutes.

In 2023, so far, the wait time has been an average of 27 minutes.

The same can be said for EPCOT, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, according to Touring Plans.

Hollywood Studious had its third-slowest day of 2023 on the Fourth of July, surpassingly.

Annual pass holder Jaime Brown said “I couldn’t believe how light the crowds were,”.

Experts are claiming the increased ticket prices, vacationers choosing to travel Europe instead and the extreme Florida heat could be contributing to the lack of guests at the parks.
