This past week was a big one for Walt Disney World, as it saw the announcement of several high profile cuts at Walt Disney World, as well as the expansion of demand-based ticket pricing for all parks.
However, while everyone was paying attention to all the big Disney announcements that made the rounds last week, several price hikes went into effect at Walt Disney World that you might not have immediately noticed...
