Date-based tickets and pricing begins today at Walt Disney World

Oct 16, 2018 in "Ticket - Magic Your Way Ticket"

Walt Disney World is launching its new date-based ticket pricing today for both single and multi-day tickets.

Compared to previous pricing, some tickets have decreased, increased or stayed the same, depending on the start date and length of the ticket. For example, a 6-Day Ticket starting November 22 2018 will now cost $5 more per day than in 2017. A 1-Day Ticket for December 25 2018 will cost the same as 2017. A 3-Day Ticket starting February 10 2019 will cost $4 less per day than in 2018.

As before, tickets may be purchased on, in the My Disney Experience app, over the phone, upon arrival at any of the four parks or through authorized travel professionals and ticket sellers. Current calendar pricing shows pricing through 2019.

At, there is a new online calendar that guides you through the ticket buying process and helps with selecting days with optimal pricing.

For the first time, you will also now be able to modify tickets online up until the ticket start date. If the ticket is changed to a higher-priced date, you will need to pay the difference. There will unfortunately be no refunded for changes that move the ticket to a lower-priced date. Changes may also be made after the ticket start date by visiting guest relations.

If you would prefer not to worry about dates, you can opt for a Flexible Date Ticket, which allows you to first use the ticket any day on or before December 31 2019 and they expire 14 days from first use.

If you have purchased tickets before October 16 2018, the original terms and conditions will apply and will not be affected by the new date-based tickets.

Disney has said that the goal of the new date-based tickets and pricing is to better spread attendance throughout the year to improve the guest experience.
