4 New Disney Ticket Price Hikes Now in Effect

Price hikes and upcharge events have become an unfortunate reality of the modern landscape of Disney Parks, and though Disney raised prices last June for annual passholders at Walt Disney World, it looks like annual passes at the Florida resort as well as tickets and passes at Disneyland are about to get a LOT more expensive thanks to a brand new round of price hikes that are now in effect. 

Annual pass prices are up by modest amounts at Walt Disney World

Though Walt Disney World annual passholders got some serious sticker shock last June when the two “no blockout” passes went over the $1000 mark for non-Florida residents, it looks like prices are on the rise again with some big year over year percentage increases. . Here’s the full price breakdown for regular guests and Florida residents. 

  • The Disney Platinum Plus Pass is now $1295, up from $1219,  a  6% increase. For Florida Residents, the price is remains $999.
  • The Disney Platinum Pass is now $1195, up from $1119, a 7% increase. For Florida Residents, the price remains $899.
  • The Gold Pass is now $719, up from $699, a 3% increase (this type of pass is only available to Florida Residents, so there is no additional location-based discount)
  • The Silver Pass is now $539 up from $519, a 4% increase (this type of pass is only available to Florida Residents, so there is no additional location-based discount)
  • Florida Resident Weekday Select Seasonal pass is now $369, up from $349, a 6% increase.

Though these price hikes are certainly a lot to take in for those visiting Walt Disney World, over on the west coast prices are up even more!

Disneyland introduces new five-tier system for single-day tickets

Like Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resort has a tiered ticket system that charges different prices for single day tickets to the resort depending on projected crowd levels. However, now instead of having three value, regular, and peak periods, Disneyland has expanded to five price “tiers”, which are priced as follows:

  • Tier 1: 1 Day Tier 1 tickets will cost $104, the same price as the old “Value” tickets. Adding the park hopper option will now cost $159, up from $154
  • Tier 2: 1 Day Tier 2 tickets will cost $114 Adding the park hopper option will now bring the total ticket price to $169
  • Tier 3: 1 Day Tier 3 tickets will cost $124. Adding the park hopper option will now bring the total ticket price to $179 
  • Tier 4: 1 Day Tier 4 tickets will cost $139. Adding the park hopper option will now bring the total ticket price to $194
  • Tier 5: 1 Day Tier 5 tickets are $154. Adding the park hopper option will now bring the total ticket price to $209, which is the first time the price for a single day ticket at Disneyland resort has gone over $200

Multi-day ticket prices go up as well at Disneyland

In addition to these substantial single-day ticket price hikes, guests who are looking to visit Disneyland Resort for 2-5 days will also see higher prices as well. Here’s the breakdown:

  • 2 Day $235 (previously $225) 2 Day with Park Hopper $290 (Previously $280)
  • 3 Day $310 (previously $300) 3 Day with Park Hopper $365 (previously $355)
  • 4 Day $340 (previously $325) 4 Day with Park Hopper $395 (previously $380)
  • 5 Day $360 (previously $340) 5 Day with Park Hopper $415 (previously $395)

Though the multi-day price hikes are a little bit lower percentage-wise, guests will still be paying between $10-$25 more to visit the resort with this new pricing scheme. 

New prices for Disneyland annual passes now in effect

Disneyland Resort has always had more expensive annual passes when compared to Walt Disney World, and though this latest round of price hikes isn’t as dramatic as the one we saw in 2019,  Disneyland is  still raising prices by a decent amount, with several passes seeing $50 increases: 

  • Select $419 (Up from $399)
  • Flex: $649 (Up from $599)
  • Deluxe $829 (Up from $799)
  • Signature $1199 (Up from $1149)
  • Signature Plus $1449 (Up from $1399)
  • Premiere $2199 (Up from $2099)

Though these annual pass price hikes are smaller percentage-wise than those we’ve seen in the past, the $50 hike on the newer “flex” pass (introduced last year as a lower cost option) is especially notable here, as it looks like Disney might be trying to curb the popularity of this pass for 2020.
