Rumors abound that Disney World ticket prices are to rise this weekend and that the cost of a one day ticket to enter Disney’s Magic Kingdom will rise from $99 to $105. Prices for tickets to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot are anticipated to increase from the current $94 to $99 for a one day ticket.
Disney introduced higher priced one day tickets for Magic Kingdom in 2013 – previously the one day price was the same for all 4 parks.
Disney World tickets usually rise in price once a year – and last year this happened in February. In 2011, 2012 and 2013 the price rises came in June. But it seems unlikely that Disney would go more than a year before increasing the ticket prices this year. Historically the most likely months for ticket price increases are in February and June.
Disney World park attendance is still rising and profits are up so they must figure that the general public can stand a price increase.
All of this is speculation at this point and it isn’t known how much multi day and Disney annual pass ticket prices may rise. Last year there were big increases in Annual Pass prices too – in percentage terms more than the single and multi day ticket prices. Disneyland was also particularly hit with large increases for Annual Passholders as well as one category of resident pass disappearing. So let’s hope that there aren’t too many changes across the board for Disney World tickets.
What do you think of Disney World ticket prices? Is $105 too much for a one day ticket to the Magic Kingdom?
