New Ticket Prices at Disney World
Disney has just unveiled its new ticket pricing policy.
On Oct. 16, Disney will begin a new flexible-pricing planning tool that will allow users to check ticket costs based when they plan to visit.
As it stands now, Disney World’s tickets are determined by a weighting system of regular and peak days. The new policy means single day tickets will be priced on daily basis based on expected crowd sizes. Overall, the prices will increase slightly to a range of $109 to $129 (decreasing per day based on the more days you book). Before the change, ticket prices have ranged from $102 to $122 per single day.
No one likes a price increase but the company’s spokespeople have tried to put a good spin on the new ticket prices at Disney World.
Thomas Smith, the editorial content director for Disney Parks, wrote: “With all there is to see and do in our parks, we know guests are increasingly looking for easier ways to plan a vacation with personalized options that fit their individual needs.” “These changes are designed to simplify the booking experience, give guests an enhanced way to purchase theme park tickets and help them more easily plan the Disney vacation of their dreams.”
The new ticket policy requires guests to use the tickets within a specific time period. Tickets with a more flexible date structure may be purchased as well, but they will cost more.
Magic Kingdom single day tickets have always cost more than those of Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot. Now the ticket prices will be the same at every theme park.
