We say quite often that there are always changes going on in Disney World, and that certainly is true this week.
Disney recently announced that price increases were coming to one-day, one-park tickets, and annual passes were increasing in price as well. But there’s another ticket increase taking effect too — Park Hopper tickets will now cost more in Disney World.
Starting today, December 8th, the price of a park hopper add-on will now change depending on what day you’re visiting the park. Previously, a Park Hopper add-on cost $65 per single-day ticket and $85 for Park Hopper Plus. Now, prices will range depending on how busy the park is when you visit.
Let’s take a look at some of the prices for 2023 tickets. Starting with a random day, we’ll use September 5th, 2023 as an example. On that day, prices range from $109-$129 for 1-park tickets, depending on which park you choose. But for Park Hopper tickets, you’ll pay $184. That’s $55 more than the most expensive single-park ticket (Magic Kingdom) and $75 more than the cheapest single-park ticket (Animal Kingdom). To get Park Hopper Plus is an additional $20, bringing the total (before tax) up to $204.
But what about the holidays and more expensive days of the year? For Halloween, you can expect to pay $219 for Park Hopper and $239 for Park Hopper Plus. It looks like the $20 difference between the two park hopping options will be pretty standard. For single-park tickets that day, Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios cost the same, while EPCOT and Animal Kingdom cost the same.
As we get further into the holiday season, let’s look at Thanksgiving. On that day, Park Hopper tickets are $248 and Park Hopper Plus is $268. Park Hopper is significantly more expensive than the cheapest single-park ticket that day (Animal Kingdom) — it’s $89 more!
But what about the non-holiday days in the holiday season? December 19th is a bit cheaper at $233 for Park Hopper and $253 for Park Hopper Plus.
On Christmas Day, it’s $253 for a Park Hopper Ticket and $272 for a Park Hopper Plus ticket. That’s pretty pricey! The single-day park tickets top out at $189 for Magic Kingdom.
And finally, we’ve got New Year’s Eve. It’s the same pricing as Christmas Day for base tickets and Park Hopper options. The Park Hopper add-on ranges from $63-$93 depending on which single-park ticket you compare it to.
So there you go — that’s a sampling of what you can expect to pay for one-day Park Hopper tickets at Disney World in 2023. Some days are better deals than others, it seems. We’ll keep you updated if any more pricing changes are made.
