Paying for airport Transportation

Disney no longer offers travel from the Orlando International Airport to WDW for free. Plan on a $15-$20 per person charge for a service or rideshare

Parking & resort fees

In addition to paying for "all the things", parking at a Disney Resort comes with a nightly fee, as does parking at the parks. 

50th Anniversary Golden Statues can be found throughout the parks. And  shows like Beacons of Magic, Harmonious and Enchantment are all part of evening entertainment.
