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.
Walt Disney World announced it is raising the prices of daily tickets, as well as annual passes and parking fees, effective Sunday, February 11, 2018.
The cost increase on one-day one-park tickets will vary according to season and park, going up as much as $7 a ticket.
Walt Disney World announced it is increasing single-day/single-park ticket prices starting today, February 12, 2017.
Effective this week, Universal Orlando is charging higher prices at the gate for one-day tickets under their new Seasonal Pricing policy.
Normally one-day/one-park tickets are $105 for adults and $100 for children, but since the parks have entered their busysummer season, a one-day/one-park ticket at the gate will now set you back $119 for adults and $114 for children.
Walt Disney World has announced this weekend that they will be changing their static one-day ticket non-park hopper ticket prices to a seasonal one-day ticket pricing, effective today, February 28, 2016.
What this means is that there will now be three levels of ticket pricing for one-day non-park hoppers, where the price will reflect how popular they expect the day to be.
This Wednesday, Universal Orlando raised its ticket prices for single day tickets to its theme parks.
A one-day single park ticket is now $105, up from $102. A park-to-park single day ticket is now $155, up from $147. Park-to-Park is needed for those wishing to ride the Howarts Express between the two Harry Potter lands.
SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Tampa have announced price increases for tickets purchased at the gate today.
Both parks are increasing the general admission price by $2. SeaWorld Orlando is now $99 for adults and $94 for children 3-9. Busch Gardens Tampa is also $99 for adults now.
Effective today, May 21, SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Tampa ticket prices will change.
Visitors will now pay $97 at the gate for a single-day ticket at either park. This is a $2 increase. The Fun Card will also increase to $97.
However, both parks are dropping the advance-purchase price of weekday tickets that can only be used Monday through Friday to $70. That’s a $5 savings.
Less than a week after Walt Disney World raised their ticket prices, another Orlando theme park has announced their rates have gone up, too.
Universal Orlando‘s one-day/one-park tickets for adults are now $102, up $6 from the previous price. Meanwhile a one-day/two-park ticket (needed if you want to ride Hogwart’s Express) is now $147.
There are discounts for multi-day passes. A two-day/two-park pass is $194.99 (with a bonus 3rd day for a limited time), a three-day/two-park pass is $204.99, and so on.
Florida residents get better deals on multi-day passes. A two-day/two-park pass is $150.99, and a three-day/two-park pass is $160.99.
Starting today, February 22, Walt Disney World daily tickets will cross the $100 barrier, as the theme park once again raises prices.
It’s been almost exactly a year since the last ticket increase, but Disney officially confirmed what had been rumor for several weeks: one-day ticket prices to Magic Kingdom will now be a record $105 plus tax.
Prices at the other three WDW parks are also increasing, but they will stay under the triple digits at $97 for a one-day/one-park ticket.
By comparison, ten years ago, a one-day/one-park ticket cost less than $60.
In the new round of Orlando theme park ticket price wars, Universal Orlando has become the first one to raise the base price of a ticket above the $90 mark.
For Universal Orlando guests, a one-day/one-park ticket, will now have a $92 base price – that means before tax. With tax, that will put the ticket price over $100 per adult.
Other Universal ticket options have also gone up in price. A one-day/two-park ticket is now $128, and a two-day/two-park ticket is now $146.99 (both before tax). These prices are for buying online in advance. Ticket prices at the gate may be more.
Of course, Florida residents can take advantage of discounted Universal Orlando annual passes online, as well.
Currently, the other two big parks, Walt Disney World and SeaWorld, offer their one-day/one-park tickets for $89 per adult.
About a month ago, Disney and Universal raised their ticket prices again, so it was only a matter of time before SeaWorld followed suit.
As of today, July 3, 2012, a one day adult ticket increased by $3 to a new price of $84.99.
Multi-day passes combining SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Tampa increase by $10 to $134.99. Add Aquatica to that combo and that ticket is now $144.99 (a $10 increase).
Check online before heading to the park as there are often discounts and special deals on the SeaWorld Orlando website.
The last time SeaWorld increased prices was September 2011.
