You are correct and this is simple supply and demand, but it's really a slap in the face to it's customers. Just because you can jack the prices up doesn't mean you should. If there's one thing Disney World is built on, it's great customer to management relationship and I just see this as a money grab. But they are within their rights to do so....
My point isn't really that they can get away with it, I'm actually suggesting that it's a good decisions from a customer experience point of view. If you take anything that there's a limited amount of if there's going to be a shortage of it, then by raising the price you make it so that only people who really
want it will pay the extra money. While I seriously doubt Disney is doing it as a case of altruism, it will have the net effect of making it so that the people who really
want to go to a certain restaurant and more likely to be able to go there. While obviously income disparities will have some impact, at the end of the day more people wanted those ADRs than ADRs existed, so by raising the price they limit them to people who want them more (or for whom the money means less).
