Walt Disney World theme park ticket price increases go into effect today

Mar 12, 2019 in "Ticket - Magic Your Way Ticket"

Walt Disney World theme park ticket price increases have gone into effect today, mainly impacting date-based ticketing and water parks.

Date-based Theme Park Tickets, Multi-day theme park tickets, Water Park Annual Passes have all seen price changes. For example, a 1 day base ticket between Christmas Day and New Year's Eve (one of the busiest weeks of the year), is now $159. A 4 day base theme park ticket in the summer (with a starting date of July 4), has seen an increase of $9 per day.

Walt Disney World introduced a more flexible ticket model last October, where prices vary by the date a guest chooses to visit. This date-based ticket and pricing model helps to spread attendance throughout the year. Ticket prices are higher during peak periods (i.e. Christmas, summer, spring break), while off-peak periods with less demand are priced lower.

A single day ticket, in the lowest priced date range, remains unchanged at $109.

The water park Annual Pass has increased by $9 from $130 to $139.

Annual Passes for the main parks have not changed pricing.

Standard parking remains unchanged, but preferred parking now has two tiers. In regular season, preferred parking is $45, and peak tier preferred parking is $50 per day. Preferred parking was previously a flat rate of $50.
