On Sunday, Feb. 28th Disney rolled out very new pricing for their US Theme Parks.
Walt Disney World pricing is as follows:
What is particularly new is that each month is divided into value, regular and peak days with an 8-11 month calendar available for viewing online for 1 day park tickets. Here’s an example, if you plan your visit for September, you will have a variety of options, including many days in the value period, which will give you the opportunity to pay less for a 1-Day ticket. If you plan to visit during a peak period, like the winter holidays you will pay more. Purchasing a 1-Day ticket in a non-peak period, or choosing multi-day ticket and annual passes, will provide additional flexibility and value, especially with this new pricing structure.
In Disneyland, expect to pay $155 for adults and $149 for children visiting for 1 day during their value season; $160/$154 during their regular season, and $169/$163 during their peak season.
In addition, although in the past 1-Day tickets for Walt Disney World Resort did not expire, 1-Day tickets sold on or after Sunday, Feb. 28 for Walt Disney World Resort will expire at the end of the next calendar year. For example, 1-day tickets sold in 2016 will expire on Dec. 31, 2017. The amount paid for an unused, expired ticket may be applied towards the purchase of a new ticket at the current price.
Castle Dreams Travel Planners have also taken note that tickets purchased within a package have not been effected by this increase, yet. Our suggestion is if you are hoping to take a Disneyland or Walt Disney World vacation this year- contact them immediately to lock in the lower theme park ticket pricing.
