A new guest survey was recently sent out asking guests about add-on experiences to the standard theme park offerings at the Walt Disney World resort. After a long and tedious sorting of their interest in everything from Ft Wilderness cart rentals (seriously) to Water Parks to park tours, respondents are finally presented with this little gem:
“A Pirate’s Life for Me: Enter the the Magic Kingdom and live out your very own pirate quest filled with adventure and surprises. Price – $199 per person.”
This addition to Adventureland has been rumored for a while, with modifications to the land reportedly having been made in recent months to allow for its installation in and testing in some areas. Everyone had assumed it was another version of the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom game and was going to be included in park admission. Apparently not, instead it’s going to cost somewhere around $200 per guest to experience in addition to theme park admission if Disney has their way.
Oh, and it wouldn’t be a Disney survey if it didn’t only ask for a positive response to the Walt Disney World Resort. Mind you, there was literally no way to express a negative opinion in this survey. See the screen show below for a perfect example of this. Balanced and accurate guests responses are NOT what the Walt Disney World resort is looking for. Instead, they’re looking to justify marketing decisions they’re planning to put into action.
