Disney has raised ticket prices, effective today, February 11, 2018. This will affect all regular theme park tickets for both Walt Disney World and Disneyland, as well as annual pass prices.
The prices are not yet available on Disney’s site, but the Orlando Sentinel has shared a partial list of the increases.
The following prices are for adult tickets (children’s ticket prices are going up as well). A one-day Regular ticket at the Magic Kingdom can now be purchased at the gate for $119, which is a $4 increase. Value tickets are $109 (up $2) and Peak tickets are $129 (up $5).
Tickets at the other three parks are cheaper than the Magic Kingdom, but their prices are going up as well. A Regular season ticket for Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom will cost $114 (up $7). A Value ticket will be $102 (up $3), and $122 (up $3).
Disney spokeswoman Andrea Finger said, “We know how important making memories at Disney theme parks is to families and we will continue to evolve our pricing in a way that gives families a range of options to meet their budget and helps better spread attendance throughout the year so they can make the most of ever visit.”
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Florida-resident pricing will also go up:
- $729, up from $679, for Platinum pass with no blockout dates.
- $589, up from $559, for Gold pass with blockout dates during Christmas and spring break.
- $439, up from $419 for Silver pass with blockout dates during Christmas, spring break and the summer.
There are also increases in pricing for theme park lockers, parking, and the Minnie Van service.
A change was announced to be coming later in the year – date-specific pricing will extend from just one-day tickets to all multi-day tickets. This means that each day of the year will be designated as Value, Regular, or Peak and have different pricing depending on the day. This previously went into effect for one-day tickets, but did not affect multi-day passes.
We don’t have pricing for Disneyland yet, but we do know that ticket prices, as well as annual passport prices will go up, also effective today. Annual pass renewal discounts have been discontinued.
