Be prepared to pay more than ever before for the Disney magic.
Disney officials announced Tuesday that one-day ticket prices for the busiest days at the parks would increase, reaching as high as $159 during Christmas time.
Disney World posted the calendar of variable ticket prices, which indicated the one-day ticket price increases that now range between $109-$159 depending on the day. Previously the top end was $129 per day.
“Our flexible date-based ticket pricing reflects the demand we see for our parks and provides guests multiple options to meet their vacation needs,” a spokesperson said. “As we invest in our parks and expand our offerings, we will continue to look for ways to manage high demand and spread attendance while preserving and enhancing the guest experience.”
As for the one-day Park Hopper tickets, they now cost between $169-$219, but Florida residents will only pay between $139-$189 for the same admission. The 4-Park Magic Tickets cost $380 in the summer and are good through September 30.
The decision to raise prices comes Disney announces some exciting openings, including Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Hollywood Studios and the TRON Lightcycle roller coaster at Magic Kingdom.
