Nice graph, and would point out the cost of the Disney experience would be expected to be steep when comparing it to household income. One might compare the growth in disposable income instead. While disposable income is tougher to measure, most costs to the household income should only grow with inflation, and thus a disposable income line growth line would be well above and much closer to Disney ticket growth line. One point I want to make is the costs I am referring to are the generic "market basket" type to households....not talking about buying a new car, going on vacation, and thus disposable income goes down....I am also aware of the market basket containing none of the essential items that have volatile prices consumers must buy daily ...
To your bullets (sorry for my master of the obvious here):
- 7.5% 2nd highest is 11 years - it would be expected with the times we have been experiencing over the last decade and skews the %
- 9.6% for the most popular - they jumped on the obvious high demand....no surprise there
Well done graph and post....I've been off this grid for awhile...hope all is well with you and your family
Someone should do graph with the difference between Eisner and Iger ticket prices.
