Disney admits Magic Kingdom is the best of their theme parks

It's hard to imagine that a day pass to the Magic Kingdom back in October of 1971 was merely $5.95.  No one would have guessed that 42 years later that 1-Day  pass to Magic Kingdom would be in the triple digits.

Perhaps the biggest bombshell of the decade was dropped when Disney apparently favors the Magic Kingdom over its other 3 theme parks,  Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, and Animal Kingdom.

This conclusion became evident when Disney's new marketing strategy increased the price over the other theme parks by $5.   Disney shocked the industry by breaking the sound barrier with the announcement that a 1-Day base would cost over $101.

On the flip side of the coin,  park enthusiasts can anticipate  a  $5 discount if they choose to visit EPCOT, Animal Kingdom, or Hollywood Studios for the day.

Disney World still maintains the highest flock of guests visiting their stable of theme parks topping some 10 - 17.5  million annually.
