Here’s what we know so far: Beginning tomorrow, February 28, 2016 Disney (Disneyland and Walt Disney World) will be shifting to seasonal pricing for 1-Day tickets. It’s an approach that you are probably familiar with from many other areas, including sports, entertainment and travel.
How will it work? Each month is divided into value, regular and peak days with an 8-11 month calendar available for viewing online. Here’s an example, if you plan t0 visit in 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.
Seasonal pricing for a 1-Day ticket and price increases for multi-day tickets will go into effect at Disney Parks today, Sunday, February 28, 2016.
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.
Single Day Tickets
Value tier 1 Day Tickets will cost $105 per day at the Magic Kingdom, and $97 at the other three parks.
Regular tier 1 Day Tickets will cost $110 per day at the Magic Kingdom, and $102 at the other three parks.
Peak tier 1 Day Tickets will cost $124 at the Magic Kingdom, and $114 at the other three parks.
Multi Day Tickets
As of now, tiered pricing only applies to 1 day tickets and will not be added to multi-day tickets at this time. Tiers may be added for multi-day tickets at a later date.
No changes to annual passes this time.
