Planning a Walt Disney World vacation?
Starting October 16th, Walt Disney World will be changing to date-based ticket prices reflecting the expected demand on specific days – plus, they’ll launch a new platform to purchase tickets. These changes are so they can better distribute attendance during the year and improve guest experiences.
While the prices of tickets will increase slightly, these changes are designed to “simplify the booking experience, give guests an enhanced way to purchase theme park tickets, and help them more easily plan the Disney vacation of their dreams,” according to the Disney Parks Blog.
According to Orlando Sentinel, a single-day ticket to the park currently costs between $102 and $129. However, when the new pricing system launches on October 16th, the ticket prices will range between $109 and $129.
When guests are ready to purchase tickets online, they can use an interactive online calendar. This calendar displays different prices based on the dates guests choose to visit and further states that tickets must be used during a specific time period. The calendar also allows guests to quickly see the lowest-priced days within a month (for example, prices may be lower during off-peak travel periods).
Another change? Disney’s getting rid of the per-day premium that Magic Kingdom guests have had to pay the past couple of years. Admission to the Magic Kingdom park will once again be the same cost as Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
What do you think of these changes?
