Some MAJOR changes just happened at Disney World!
If you’re planning to visit Disney World today or any time in the future, you’ll need to know about the recent ticket price changes. Park tickets, Park Hopper, and Annual Passes have all been affected. Take a look at all the changes here!
Some park tickets will now cost more than others, but not every day will be affected. Let’s dive into the details.
Park Ticket Pricing Changes
Beginning today (December 8th), Disney rolled out park-specific pricing for 1-day, 1-park tickets. This means that park tickets are now impacted by surge pricing. (This is similar to the changes we saw recently for Genie+.). Multi-day park tickets have also been affected by price changes.
Here’s a look at the price ranges for park tickets, broken down by park (note that Magic Kingdom will generally be the most expensive park to visit):
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom: $109-$159
- Disney’s Hollywood Studios: $124-$179
- EPCOT: $114-$179
- Magic Kingdom: $124-$189
Disney noted that the $189 price point for Magic Kingdom is specifically for the 9 days around the week of Christmas to New Year’s. They said that over 99% of Disney’s 1-day, 1-park tickets will be below $189.
Because you’ll now be purchasing a park-specific ticket for 1-day, 1-park tickets, you do not have to make Park Pass Reservations for those tickets. Those reservations will be automatically made for you at the time of purchase.
Remember that this only affects 1-day, 1-park tickets. If you’re purchasing Park Hopper or multi-day tickets, you will still need to make your own Park Pass Reservations.
Park Hopper Changes
Park Hopper also looks a little different now. Disney announced that pricing for certain ticket add-ons will now vary by date, which is another instance of surge pricing.
Adding Park Hopper to your ticket will cost more or less on a given day, depending on the demand for the theme parks each day.
Annual Pass Price Increases
If you’re a Disney World Annual Passholder, price increases might affect your pass. Most Disney World Annual Passes just increased in price.
Disney’s Pixie Dust Pass stayed at its current price, but all 3 of the other passes now cost more. Remember that sales for the Incredi-Pass, Sorcerer Pass, and Pirate Pass are still paused. Disney hasn’t announced yet when sales will resume. Pixie Dust Passes (exclusive to Florida residents) are currently available for new purchase. All pass types are available for renewal.
Here’s a look at the price increases for Annual Passes:
- Incredi-Pass: increased from $1,299 to $1,399 ($100 increase)
- Sorcerer Pass: increased from $899 to $969 ($70 increase)
- Pirate Pass: increased from $699 to $749 ($50 increase)
- Pixie Dust Pass: stayed at $399 (no change)
There are also increases on the renewal costs. Annual Passholders still get a discount on their renewals, and it is at the same percentage, but the renewal costs has increased between $43 and $100, depending on the type of Annual Pass.
Those are all the ticket price changes that happened today (December 8th) in Disney World. Make sure to factor the changes into your budget for your next Disney trip!
