Though Walt Disney World raises prices on things like souvenirs, events, and food all throughout the year, the resort is rather methodical with its ticket price increases. Every spring, prices for single and multi-day tickets go up, and effective today, it looks like prices for tickets have gone up yet again. Here's the new price breakdown for single-day (non-park hopper) tickets, effective immediately:
Single day tickets go up across the board
Peak season (including spring break, much of the summer and late December): ticket prices for adults will rise to $129 for the Magic Kingdom up from $124 from last year. Children's prices will rise to $123, up from $118. Prices for non-Magic Kingdom parks during this period have also risen to $122, up from last year $119 for adults. Children's tickets have also risen to $116 from $113.
Regular season (Covering the early spring and fall): will rise to $119 from $115 at Magic Kingdom for adults ($113 from $109 for children), and is up to $114 from $107 for Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom for adults (rising to $108 from $101 for children)
Value days (late August and almost all of September): will now cost $109 up from $99 at the Magic Kingdom for adults, and children's tickets now cost $103 during this period, up from $101). Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom are up to $102, rising from $97 during this period for adults. Children's tickets for non-Magic Kingdom parks doing this period are the only Disney tickets now available under $100, now costing $96, up from $93.
Annual passholders are going to feel the squeeze in 2018
In addition to the changes to daily admission prices, the cost of every single type of Walt Disney World annual pass has gone up beginning today as well.
- Florida-resident gold passes with blockout dates during Christmas and spring break will now cost $589, up from $559.
- Platinum passes, which have no blockout dates will now cost $729 for Florida residents, up a full $50 from last year's price of $679. Platinum passes for non-Florida residents will now cost $849, up $70 from last year's price.
- The highest tier of annual pass, the Platinum Plus pass, which includes 365 days of admission to theme parks and water parks, now costs $829, up $60 from last year for Florida residents. The non-FL resident price for this pass is $949, up $80 from last year.
Though these changes may be the most dramatic, Disney's sweeping price hikes also hit multi-day tickets as well, which will see some pretty big increases as well...
