Parents debate pressure to take kids to Disney theme parks

For many kids, a trip to Disneyland or Disney World feels like a rite of passage. However, for many parents, there’s growing debate about giving their kids that experience despite the high cost.

Tickets for Disney World range from between $70 to $200, and that’s per person, per day. Those rates don’t include the Genie Pass, parking, hotels or food.

Overall, some families are looking at $1,000 and up per day for a visit to Disney’s theme parks in California and Florida.
