New Date-Based Ticket Pricing and Online Planning for Walt Disney World Resort Guests

In Disney’s continued effort to make each guest’s visit more magical than the last, they will soon release date-based ticket pricing as well as a new online planning experience for Walt Disney World Resort guests. Beginning October 16th, this new ticket pricing and planning experience will be available to guests.

It appears that in order to price and purchase your tickets, you must select the exact date which you will first be visiting the parks. There is a calendar which will show you per-day pricing allowing you to select the most affordable day to begin your visit. For those who are not planning on selecting their park days, for an additional fee, you can select a “flexible” park ticket which allows you to visit on any day. At this time the flexible park ticket option appears to be $50 per person.

In addition, the new features on will assist guests in planning the details of their trip by offering travel tips and customized suggestions. Plans can also be managed through the My Disney Experience App as well.

What does this mean for you? Disney’s overall goal is to improve the guest experience and this effort is being made in hopes of spreading out crowds. As the parks grow and the popularity of certain attractions draws more crowds, Disney is making a conscious effort to keep everyone smiling while visiting the most magical place on Earth. By offering date-based ticket pricing, some guests may be encouraged to visit the parks on less busy days, therefore dispersing the crowds.

With all of these changes on the horizon, there couldn’t be a better time to make sure you are set up with a Disney Vacation Planner who is ready and prepared to answer all of your questions.
