Walt Disney World ticket prices have increased today, with park-specific pricing joining the existing date-based pricing for single-day single-park tickets.

Disney's Animal Kingdom is now the cheapest park to visit, followed by EPCOT, with Magic Kingdom priced the highest at $189. The previous pricing model varied by date, but all parks were priced equally.

Pricing for today, December 8, is $149 at Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios, $139 at EPCOT, and $134 at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Also, new today is the automatic allocation of a theme park Park Pass reservation at the time of purchasing a single-day ticket. Guests no longer need to buy a ticket and make a Park Pass reservation.

The range of pricing for single-day tickets at Walt Disney World is:

  • Disney's Animal Kingdom $109 - $159
  • Disney's Hollywood Studios $124 - $179
  • EPCOT $114 - $179
  • Magic Kingdom $124 - $189

Disney's line-up of Walt Disney World Annual Passes will see a price increase when sales finally resume.

  • Incredi-Pass - $1399 (previously $1299)
  • Sorcerer Pass - $969 (previously $899)
  • Pirate Pass - $749 (previously $699)
  • Pixie Dust Pass - $399 (no change)

… until they need them to fill the parks because the regular and first-time rubes guests consumers are staying away.

They want less AP holders not more.

I really thought they would have returned before Christmas. There has to be a lot of people who buy them as Christmas gifts.

I have a hunch that new AP sales could return once they know how many people took advantage of their 10-25% off resort room pricing deals for the first 4 months of 2023. The 40% off Florida resident 4-day tickets also says, “We need bodies in the parks.” I often wonder if those deals are to get resort capacity up to ~85-90% or over that mark.

Pish! We know better than people do, they're just tourists!

Would lead to some pretty interesting surveys though

No renters allowed.....

An appraisal and last mortgage statement. They’ll handle the financing for the HELOC And of course the appraiser will need to be “Disney Certified” - and they’ll get a piece of that as well.

I'm tellin' ya a credit check, Dun and Bradstreet and DNA test will be required before booking

Nah - that’s old thinking. Amex is a charge card with no spend limit. That’s exactly what today’s Disney wants you to show up with ;)

Our Family is out.... DVC memberships sold off by 1-2023. No more APs (which do not exist anyway). No more flights that just get canceled. Just "no more".

Not really surprised how much cost is skewed. MK 264 days are at or above the old $159, EP 91, HS 189 and AK has 23. Previous was 18 days. Only 7 days at MK are $124

Disney Visa, Amex is Universal ;)

They must be hurting for attendance if they are offering that deal.
