It just got a bit more expensive to visit Walt Disney World. Effective March 12, 2019, Disney has raised the prices on date-based theme park tickets, multi-day theme park tickets, the Park Hopper add-on and water park annual passes.
A single-day ticket during one of the busiest times of the year at Walt Disney World, such as the week between Christmas and New Year’s, now costs $159. Meanwhile, a four-day ticket package during the peak summer months now costs $9 more per day. Disney’s most affordable tickets, which are $109 during the non-peak times, haven’t been changed at this time.
Summarized, Disney has increased the prices to visit its theme parks during the busiest times of the year, such as holiday weeks and weekends.
Disney’s date-based pricing structure makes seeing the full impact of the pricing changes difficult, as the rates vary depending on the time of the year. Guests should plug in their expected visit dates to find out what their new price for theme park tickets will be.
We imagine that the value season’s price of $109 for a single-day ticket will likely increase into next year. The date-based model allows Disney to push crowds towards non-peak times by offering more affordable tickets.
The Park Hopper add-on has also increased in price. Each Park Hopper add-on package has increased by $5, though the price of the Park Hopper Plus package hasn’t changed.
The water park annual pass has increased by $9. No changes have been made to the regular annual pass pricing at this time.
Prices for parking have changed slightly. Standard parking remains the same, but the preferred parking is now offered in two tiers. Preferred parking will be $45 during non-peak seasons and $50 during the peak seasons.
