Walt Disney World Ticket Price Increase Goes Into Effect Today

‘Happily Ever After’ Nighttime Spectacular Will Debut at Magic Kingdom Park May 12

Walt Disney World ticket prices are increasing. Again.

The new date-based ticket pricing we discussed back in October kicks into gear. Price increase kick into effect today, so that trip to the magic might cost you a little more… if you’re just going for one day, that is.

Here’s what you can expect…

  • 1 day ticket during a peak period is now $159 specifically for 1-day base theme park tickets between Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve, one of the busiest weeks of the year.
  • 4 day ticket in the summer will now cost $9 more per day for select periods (for example: a starting date of July 4).
  • A single day ticket, in the lowest priced date range, remains unchanged at $109.
  • The water park Annual Pass has increased by $9 from $130 to $139

Standard parking remains unchanged, but preferred parking now has two tiers. In regular season, preferred parking is $45, and peak tier preferred parking is $50 per day. Preferred parking was previously a flat rate of $50.
