Disney World Raises Ticket Prices, Report Says

Florida’s Disney World is raising the prices of base tickets and most annual passes, reports said Tuesday.

Starting Dec. 8, Disney World’s theme parks, which include MagicKingdomHollywood Studios, Epcot and Animal Kingdom, will reportedly implement park-specific pricing on one-day, one-park tickets. On busy days, that Magic Kingdom ticket specifically will cost park-goers a prettier penny.

According to USA Today, Animal Kingdom will be the only park to keep its existing one-day one-park ticket price range ($109-$159). The other three will cost as follows:

  • Epcot: $114-$179
  • Hollywood Studios: $124-$179
  • Magic Kingdom: $124-$189

“Magic Kingdom Park will be priced at or above our other theme parks due to the incredible demand as it remains the most-visited theme park in the world,” Disney said in a statement to USA Today.

Park Hopper and Park Hopper Plus tickets, the option that lets park-goers visit one or more theme parks per day, will increase in price as well.

the cost of annual passes will almost all increase too, according to CNN:

  • Disney Pixie Dust Pass: $399 (remains the same)
  • Pirate Pass: $749 (up by $50)
  • Sorcerer Pass: $969 (up by $70)
  • Incredi-Pass: $1,399 (up by $100)

The ticket increases come as families feel the weight of inflation on everyday items like groceries and gas.

it follows Disneyland last month raising ticket prices in Anaheim. Over on the West Coast, a one-day park hopper ticket can cost up to $244. Genie Plus, the paid system that replaced free fastpasses, now also costs $25 per person per day at Disneyland, a $5 increase on its previous pricing. At Disney World, Genie Plus ranges between $15 and $22 per person per day, depending on how busy the day is.

Disney Parks didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
