Update: I have updated the various theme park ticket articles with the new pricing structure. Check out -
if they are of any interest. The price of the Park Hopper and Water Park Fun upgrades only went up $1, so there’s no big changes there. I added a blurb on the Park Hopper article mentioning that the best way to decide if Park Hopper is for you is to calculate how much each Park Hop will cost. In other words, figure out how much it’s going to cost, how often you’re going to hop, and then decide if the cost is worth the additional experience. The No Expiration upgrade is quite a bit more expensive than it was before. All prices in these articles include tax, which may be helpful in figuring out the total cost of the tickets.
Disney World ticket prices are going up across the board on June 12th. You can view a chart with all of the new prices at the Disney Parks Blog here: http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/magic-your-way-facts-on-walt-disney-world-prices/. Here is a list of the old prices, new prices, and difference in cost. I also made it into a downloadable PDF, which you can view here: http://www.easywdw.com/2011increases.pdf
As you can see, some of the increases are rather substantial, topping out at nearly 14%. The biggest change may be the fact that the cost to add the fifth through tenth day to a Magic Your Way Base Ticket is now $8 instead of $5 (a 60% increase!). That’s why you see the difference in price increasing in percentage terms as more days are added.
I’m going to Disney World in August, but don’t have tickets yet. Can I buy them now and pay the current prices?
Absolutely, but only until the close of business on June 11th, at least through Disney. The prices go up on all new ticket purchases on June 12th. Discount ticket agents like UndercoverTourist.com have been known to keep the original pricing until they run out of those tickets. Head over to http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/tickets-passes/ immediately to lock in current prices or visit your favorite ticket discounter.
I have purchased a Disney World vacation package for August, but it isn’t paid off yet. Will the price go up because of this?
Nope, the price is locked in. You won’t have to pay the higher ticket costs.
