Disney will soon introduce park-specific pricing alongside the existing date-based pricing for single-day single-park tickets at Walt Disney World. (via @ScottGustin)

Disney's Animal Kingdom will be the cheapest park to visit, followed by EPCOT, with Magic Kingdom priced the highest at $189. The existing pricing model varies by date, but all parks are priced equally.

"Magic Kingdom Park will be priced at or above our other theme parks due to the incredible demand as it remains the most-visited theme park in the world," Disney said in a statement.

The new pricing model comes into effect on December 8 2022 and is as follows:

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

Along with the pricing model change, Disney will also automatically assign a Park Pass reservation at the time of a single-day, single-park ticket purchase, replacing the current manual system that relies on the guest making a reservation after purchasing the ticket.

… 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.
