We all agree that a WDW vacation is pricey, but I wanted to post for the board what I just paid for lift tickets to go skiing in Steamboat, CO for an upcoming March Spring break trip as compare to park tickets for our 2019 WDW trip over Thanksgiving:
Steamboat lift tickets:
2 teens and 1 adult for 5 days – $2550 ($850 each)
1 adult for three days (my DW) – $550
WDW for Thanksgiving week
8-day park tickets with hopper for 4 (2 teens and 2 adults) - $2500.
Skiing is $600 more for significantly less days and less entertainment options. Plus the ski rental equipment added another $1000 to the cost.
As a family we enjoy both skiing and our WDW vacations, but in terms of dollar per total entertainment value, I think WDW comes out on top.
