Reedy creek financed it... So they are paying for it through fees they collect from.... Disney. It's not like saying the state tax payers paid for it. It's just a financing path Disney can take due to the closed loop nature of rcid and DisneyDisney

Disney Springs garages was paid for by taxes if I understand correctly

Crazy they can charge that much really... But it hopefully won't have an impact on me as I'll always look to stay on site. At universal I stayed at the hard rock for a Night last year and had to pay to park at hotel despite staying there!

Maybe the $3 hike is paying for the loss of income from Speedway.

Exactly...simple supply and demand. That's what I have been talking about. So long as the demand continues to grow, so will the price point. Clearly, Disney has not reached the point of over-supply. They will keep raising prices until they do.

It's really a shame how many people don't realize that actions have consequences, which is exactly what some of these price increases are starting to do. Eeking out every last buck you can only works until folks find you too over priced and stop giving you any bucks at all.

Yes...there is a balance, to be sure. You want to make maximum profit without turning off your customers. I get that. But clearly there are less people who are bothered by the "cash grab" than you think. The place is busting at the seams. Customers are obviously not turned off.

Should speed up the queue at the toll booths, a twenty handed over without having to fork back three ones, now if they just put in a CC lane and a AP lane they could really get some throughput

When one considers what it costs for everything else... $3.00 is chump change. If three bucks affects my plans then I will pretty much stop going there. Hasn't happened yet.

There is a difference between getting more revenue by finding the maximum that customers are willing to pay and good business. Raising by $3 all at once can be enough to make people think about what they are paying and leaves a bitter feeling. A smaller increase every six months could have made better business sense as it is less noticeable to guests. I know Disney is a business blah blah but some of their recent moves look more like cash grabbing than running a good business.

It's good business is the point. Charge money for something that doesn't have a lot of overhead. Keep raising the price for that service for until you find the maximum that customers are willing to pay. I am always baffled at why people think that Disney would act as anything other than a very successful business providing a quality product.

Trams are parking, not transportation. Parking attendants operate them.

Or just make more $$ off you, plain and simple.
