It’s not all magic

According to Frommer’s editor-in-chief, David Horvitz, dissatisfied Disney World visitors are not making things up, and the park has drastically altered.

Since 2006, Frommer’s co-author and Disney World fanatic Cochran has been writing Frommer’s guides for Disney World, Universal Studios Hollywood and Orlando. He claims that even the most devoted Disney enthusiasts are starting to rebel against a slew of ever-increasing costs, lesser quality encounters, and difficulties in planning a trip.


“I feel like Disney is pricing people out, can the average working American family really afford this?”

“Disney has not made this decision public, but it has apparently done so privately,” Cochran said. “It’s done a number of things to increase profits and raise prices for access in order to attract consumers who spend more each day than previous guests.”

Disney World trash
