    Exclamation New Prices Increases for Some Walt Disney World Tickets & Park Hopper Add-On

    The Walt Disney World resort has raised prices on several ticket types in their new date based system.

    The primary impact appears to be 1 Day Tickets for Peak Attendance Period (ex. near Christmas). This ticket type has increased $20. The new $159 price tag is considered a new 'record' price for a single day, non-boutique theme park ticket.

    Smaller impacts have been made to multi-day tickets for Moderate - Peak attendance periods (ex. around 4th of July). This ticket type has increased by ~ $8-$9.

    Also of note, the Park Hopper add-on's have all increased by $5.

    Pricing in (currently) Moderate, Moderate-Low, and Low Attendance periods have remained unchanged consistent with the announced intent of using this new date based system more evenly spreading crowds through-out the year.

    It could be expected that this pricing trend will continue where Walt Disney World makes it more expensive to visit during historically peak periods of time.

    I guess they were about due to increase....It's been 6 months since the last price hike....

    $159 for a single day, though? Yes, I know that is "peak/holiday" season/day(s) but still....

    Rough guesstimate of 250,000 people going to the parks (all 4 together) on a day, like Christmas Day or New Years Eve, you are looking at $40 MILLION in gate income on one single day!!!

    Makes sense except there are really no Low Attendance periods anymore and one might argue about the Moderate-Low and Moderate periods too.

    Yikes, though--that's a heft one-day admission price!

    Realistically, how many people do you think would do this? Are there that many people that decide on impulse to visit Disney for one day during a peak attendance period?

    Not many if they keep raising prices like that.
    We believed in our idea - a family park where parents and children could have fun- together

    Not
    We believed in our idea - a place to line the pockets of CEOs and shareholders

    What's this I am hearing about another increase in October??? Two in one year?? Disney wouldn't... They love the guests too much!!!!

    BTW this is another unconfirmed rumor.... Nothing pointing toward another 6% increase by Iger and Co...
