Not only are hotel room prices increasing for 2022, but they now come with less–so your overall expenditure will be even greater if you stay on-site at Walt Disney World in 2022. In addition, Walt Disney World is retiring its Magical Express airport shuttle in 2022 and charging for hotel parking (this isn’t a new development for 2022, but it’s newly relevant for those debating rental car v. airport shuttle v. Uber or Lyft). In conclusion, not only are hotel room costs higher in 2022, but they also include less–so your total outlay will be much greater if you stay on-site at Walt Disney World in 2022.

DINING

In When Will the Disney Dining Plan Return? we forecast timing for its comeback, as well as our rationale. It’s a good read that explains why the Dining Plan is integral to Walt Disney World and offers our prediction as to when it’ll return in 2022.
