Weekly Distractions
Purple Magic Bands are here.
Premium Parking spots at Walt Disney World – Pay a whopping $35 to get premium parking spaces at the parks.  The charge is a $15 premium on top of the base parking rate of $20. I will put this as a rumor for now since WDW Magic is the only site I see talking about this.
Walt Disney World Dining Plan increases – 3% increase with no changes in what’s included.
Resort Fees Coming – Guest surveys have been asking the question about the addition of a $15 resort fee.  This after the recent price increases makes it feel like Disney is grabbing at our pocketbooks at an alarming rate.
