Disney World raises ticket costs for the second time in a year

On the off chance that you’re planning on going to Walt Disney World in 2023, you can purchase next year’s tickets at current rates until December 8. That is when costs on most ticket types will be expanding, including single-day tickets, multi-day passes, and annual pass renewals.

The organization’s flagship resort in Orlando, Florida, currently hiked up ticket costs in February, making this the second time in a calendar year that entry into the “most magical place on earth” has become more costly.

A Disney representative said that this is driven by continued strong demand and significant investment across the organization’s theme parks in recent years.

The current cost for a one-day, one-park ticket is between $109 and $159, contingent upon demand. However, beginning December 8, that range will presently likewise rely upon the park you decide to visit. Three of the four theme parks will be more expensive to visit, with Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios both seeing a 12% increase in excess.

As of December 8, one-day, one-park tickets will be:

  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom: $109-$159 (same range as today)
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios: $124-$179
  • EPCOT: $114-$179
  • Magic Kingdom Park: $124-$189

The people who buy single-day tickets, without a park hopper, will never again need to make a park reservation for that day. Park reservations are as yet expected for any remaining ticket types.

Varying ticket costs

Disney noticed that the high finish of the one-day, one-park ticket, $189, applies to just Magic Kingdom for nine days around the week of Christmas to New Year’s when groups are highest. Magic Kingdom is the most visited theme park in the world and the most famous of the four parks at Walt Disney World.

At present, park reservations for Magic Kingdom are no longer accessible for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Eve in 2022.

Don Munsil, president and co-owner of Mouse Savers Inc., a website that tracks discounts and costs at Disney parks, said Disney’s Hollywood Studios is the next most popular park, in large part as a result of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge.

He said this cost change by the park is about demand management.

“Their bottleneck is often the Magic Kingdom. Lots of people want to come to the Magic Kingdom. And Disney would really like to get people to spread out and try the other parks. And they’ve tried keeping the prices the same as a way of sort of signaling that they’re all just as good. But I don’t think anyone has ever bought that idea,” he said.

Munsil said lower single-day costs at different parks may draw people to them.

Costs will likewise increment for multi-day tickets, however, a Disney representative didn’t offer specific price details.

“We continue to focus on providing guests with the best, most memorable Disney experience, and we’re doing that by growing our theme parks with incredible new attractions and offerings,” the spokesperson said.

“We are also making planning easier with new 1-day tickets that automatically include a guest’s theme park reservation and continue to provide a wide range of options to visit throughout the year, including our lowest priced ticket of $109 which has not changed in more than four years.”

The $109 ticket applies to just Animal Kingdom and will be accessible 20 days out of the year, during a lower-crowd season. These tickets are generally accessible on weekdays in late August and September.

The people who want to hop between parks around the same day will likewise see the “park hopper” cost vary by date. Powerful December 8, there will be a few dates where park hoppers will remain $65, however, different dates will see higher rates.

Annual pass costs rise

Costs for the majority of Walt Disney World’s annual pass renewals are additionally going up. Effective December 8, three of Walt Disney World’s four annual passes, which are as of now just accessible for renewal, will increment in cost by up to $100.

The cost of the Disney Pixie Dust Pass will continue as before: $399. New sales are at present workable for the Pixie Dust Pass.

New sales are stopped for Incredi-Pass, Sorcerer Pass, and Pirate Pass. However, costs are going up as follows: Incredi-Pass will go up by $100 to $1,399; Sorcerer will increment by $70 to $969, and the Pirate pass will go up by $50 to $749. Renewal costs on these passes are offered at a discount.

Tom Bricker, a co-founder of, said Disney World fans are “increasingly disillusioned with ever-increasing prices coupled with cost-cutting measures and myriad ways in which the company has made visiting its parks more tedious.

“However, pent-up demand remains strong and the parks are crowded, for now. Already, investors and analysts have questioned how Disney will adjust to a recession or economic downturn. In that event, it remains to be seen whether Disney will be able to pivot and maintain strong numbers, or if the higher prices and assorted frustrations are alienating lifelong fans and causing irreparable brand damage.”

Changes to dining reservations

The resort has likewise updated its dining reservations policy, effective immediately. Reservations can now be canceled as long as two hours ahead of the reservation time without a cancellation fee, except for three locations. Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, Victoria and Albert’s, and Monsieur Paul will keep the policy of no-penalty cancellations as long as 24 hours in advance.

Disneyland in Anaheim, California, has comparable changes made plans for dining reservations.

“Disneyland Resort plans to update our dining reservation policy to allow for same-day cancellations later this month,” Disneyland officials said, additionally permitting cancellations as long as two hours in advance.

In any case, not at all like Walt Disney World in Florida, the California resort will in any case require park reservations for all ticket holders, and it will keep a flat rate of $65 to hop between parks.

Disneyland already saw cost expansions in October for busier-season admission and conveniences like hotel valet parking.

Around then, the two resorts expanded costs for the Genie+ skip-the-line service and merchandise like custom-built light sabers and droids, in addition to other things. Disney World additionally knocks up the costs of many food items.

Disney has put more than $31 billion in new guest experiences in the past decade.

In an earnings report earlier this month, Disney revealed $7.4 billion in worldwide parks revenue, a 36% boost from a year ago. Higher crowds and higher spending per guest drove that revenue, as indicated by the report. It stated that the development in guest spending was due in part to the introduction of the paid Genie+ skip-the-line service.
