Higher wages means higher prices, which means that, whatever the service or product, the consumer will be buying less of it. And, people will have to save longer to be able to afford going to Disney, which again means that, there will be less consumer visits, which might force the liberal-led Disney to hike prices again. And, those with the higher minimum wage will have become become the new minimum wage earners, and will be demanding a higher minimum wage shortly after the last hike in the minimum wage. Eventually, the minimum wage will end up being 50-100 dollars per hour.
There will always be a 'minimum' wage that nobody is happy with.

Went 15 years ago. It was way overpriced then. They charged for almost everything. I was thankful the air was free.
Don’t plan on ever going back again. I can obtain more value for my entertainment dollar a bunch of other places.

(Why have an army if there are no borders?)
I just got back from 11 days in Florida including over a week in Orlando. Never set foot in any of the parks (I was still nursing a sore back), but saw Celtic Thunder at Hard Rock Live at Universal City Walk. There is too much traffic there. I also noticed a price premium on everything compared to where I live here in Georgia. Sure the weather was nice, except for a couple of chilly days in the low 50's. Note: Floridians had on their heavy winter coats for that.
Are they also raising the wages of their current employees a corresponding amount? If not the not so happiest place on Earth is going to be pretty rough for new hires.

(I'll take a bad dog over a good politician any day!)
Considering the state of our society lately, the employees probably deserve $15/hour.

Price affordability should be the last concern—Disney charges what the market commands, not what assures some modest profit.
$15/hour isn’t that much and it is entirely their business. Will that lead to them automating some low-productivity jobs? Maybe, but so it’s going anyway.
We really just need to send illegals home—where they would do more to build up their home countries than Trump’s $10B giveaway to their government overlords will.
Oh, and stop with the government-provided student loans and grants. Let college kids work their way through college like we did, back in the day.
