“I remember going to Disney for spring break in 1989. My Florida resident ticket was $19,” a Disney fan commented on the video.
Others have argued that even though prices have risen, the chart does not take into account company growth or inflation.
“Honestly, that chart doesn’t say much. It doesn’t say how much more they’re spending, how many employees they’ve added. Nothing.”
“You shouldn’t draw conclusions from this chart. Does it adjust for inflation? Salaries and gas prices in what area? So many factors are not taken into account.”
