Beginning tomorrow (Sunday, February 22, 2015), if you’ll be traveling to Walt Disney World, entering a theme park is going to be more expensive.
For the first time ever, Disney has increased the price of a Magic Kingdom single day park ticket past the $100 mark: a one-day ticket to just the Magic Kingdom will now cost $105 for those ages 10 and up, an increase of $6. Ticket prices also increased for Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, with a one-day ticket costing $97 for those ages 10 and up, a $3 increase.
Other Magic Your Way base tickets have jumped about $11 per ticket (with a few exceptions).
It’s not just Magic Your Way base tickets that have increased in price. All options have increased, with minor increases to Park Hoppers, as well as the Water Park Fun & More options – both of which increased about $4. (Again, there are a few exceptions.) Also, the Park Hopper plus Water Park Fun & More combined ticket option increased by $4.
I do have some bad news for those of you who like to purchase the No Expiration option. Disney will no longer offer the No Expiration option, and now all tickets will expire 14 days after first use.
This is how the new pricing is structured:
|One Day Theme Park Ticket Options|
|Ticket||Ages 10-up||Ages 3-9|
|1-Day Magic Kingdom Ticket||$105||$99|
|1-Day Epcot or Disney’s Hollywood Studios or Disney’s Animal Kingdom Ticket||$97||$91|
|1-Day Magic Your Way with Park Hopper Ticket||$155||$149|
|1-Day Magic Your Way with Water Park Fun & More Ticket||$169||$163|
|1-Day Magic Your Way with Park Hopper & Water Park Fun & More Ticket||$195||$195|
Base Ticket: One Theme Park per day
Park Hopper: Can enter more than one Theme Park on each day
Water Park Fun & More: Allows guests a specific number of visits (between 2 and 10, depending on the number of days of your ticket) to the Disney Water Parks, DisneyQuest Interactive Theme Park, Disney’s Oak Trail golf course, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, Disney’s Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf, and Disney’s Winter Summerland Miniature Golf.
If you are looking for a Magic Your Way Multi-Day Ticket purchase, the new pricing is as follows:
|Magic Your Way Ticket Options|
|Days On Ticket||Base Ticket||Optional Add-Ons|
|Ages 10-up||Ages 3-9||Park Hopper®||Water Park Fun & More||Park Hopper® & Water Park Fun & More|
|$64||$64 (10 visits)||$90 (10 visits)|
|$64||$64 (9 visits)||$90 (9 visits)|
|$64||$64 (8 visits)||$90 (8 visits)|
|$64||$64 (7 visits)||$90 (7 visits)|
|$64||$64 (6 visits)||$90 (6 visits)|
|$64||$64 (5 visits)||$90 (5 visits)|
|$64||$64 (4 visits)||$90 (4 visits)|
|$50||$64 (3 visits)||$90 (3 visits)|
|$50||$64 (2 visits)||$90 (2 visits)|
In addition, we see an increase in Annual Pass prices (which are the same for everyone, ages 3 and up):
- The Annual Pass price increased by $20, to $654. This pass gets you into all four theme parks (hopping is permitted) for 365 consecutive days.
- A Premium Annual Pass now costs $779, also an increase of $25. This pass gets you into all four theme parks (with hopping), Disney’s two water parks, Disney’s Oak Trail golf course, DisneyQuest, and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
There is also a change to admission for Disney’s water parks. Guests who purchase a one day water park ticket now have the ability to spend time at both Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon on the same day, when both water parks are open. The cost of a one-day ticket to the water parks is $58 for those ages 10 and up and $50 for those ages 3-9.
Disney’s last Walt Disney World ticket increase happened one year ago, last February.
If you’re looking for tickets, remember that our Price Comparison Tool can help you find the least expensive tickets for your particular needs. Prices are updated each night. Sometimes when Disney increases ticket prices, third-party resellers continue to sell their “old stock” of tickets at the old prices while supplies last, so you may be able to snag some lower priced tickets if you act soon!
