Walt Disney World has raised its ticket prices this week for dates that fall within peak periods of business, such as Christmas holidays.
According to Disney’s website, from Christmas to New Year’s, a one-day, one-park “peak period” ticket is now $159 plus tax, which is a $30 increase.
Other busy times of the year, including Easter, Memorial Day and from mid-December to Christmas Eve, the new ticket price is $139, a $10 increase.
The previous price range for one-day tickets was between $109-$129.
The price range for a one-day Park Hopper is now $169-$219, per the website. For Florida residents, the cost of a one-day Park Hopper ranges from $139-$189.
A water park annual pass has also increased $9, from $130 to $139.
The increase in peak season ticket prices comes as Walt Disney World expands the offerings at its parks, with new attractions like Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Hollywood Studios opening this summer.
While Walt Disney World sees these increases as a way to manage high demand times of the year at the parks, many are worried it will start pricing out families who may decide it’s just too expensive to visit and choose alternate destinations.
What are your thoughts on the price increases?
