Sadly, it’s that time of year again when we here at Chip and Co, have to let our faithful Disney readers know that both Walt Disney World and Disneyland will be increasing their single-day admission tickets as well as Annual Passports starting today.
Walt Disney World
As you know, Disney introduced tiered ticket pricing last year with off-peak periods having the cheapest tickets and the most popular times of year the most expensive. Under this system, the middle tiered prices will go up from $102 to $107. That’s an increase of $5 a ticket. Peak tier tickets will also go up $5.00 from $119 to $114. However, the lower tier off-peak tickets will only see a price increase of $2.
The pricing for Magic Kingdom is slightly different as Disney charges a slightly higher rate for this theme park. Prices for value and middle tier tickets will increase but the peak ticket prices will remain the same price.
Annual Passholders are not exempt from the increases. The cost of Gold Passes for Florida residents will increase by $10 and the Florida resident Platinum Pass will go up $30.
Including in this new pricing scheme will also be changes incentivizing advanced purchasing with those booking online or via phone saving $20 on Magic You Way Ticket bundles from 3-10 days.
In another shake-up Disney is eliminating the Water Park Fun and More add-on ticket. Visitors can still get the Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon combo ticket with the Park Hopper option.
And finally, starting today, all tickets will also have expiration dates, not just single-day tickets.
Over at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, the price of visiting during off-peak periods will increase by $2. A visit during mid range dates will increase by $5 from $110 up from $105 and peak tickets also increase by $5 from $119 to $124.
Parking is also increasing from $18 to $20.
The Southern California Select and Southern California passes will also increase by $10.
With ticket increases been leaked yesterday (February 11th), and many Disney insiders getting up to speed today on these changes, the information included above may change. Readers are encouraged to check back with Chip and Co over the next couple of days for any additional information regarding ticketing increases.
