Disney Ticket Prices Increase
At a time when people are spending less and saving as much as possible, Disney is taking us in the opposite direction. As of today (August 5th), admission to Disney theme parks in California and Florida will have higher prices for all ages. Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida will now charge $82 (previously $79) for a one-day, one-park passes for ages 10 and up while tickets for children ages 3 to 9 will be $74 ($68). The additional fee for park-hopper tickets will jump by $2 for one-day access, to $54. One-day, one-park tickets to Southern California’s Disneyland Resort will now be $76 ($72) for ages 10 and up and from $68 ($62) for ages 3 to 9. Prices for one-day park-hopper tickets will go up by $4 for both age groups. Prices for annual passes will also increase by $10 to $18 at Disney World and by $20 for premium annual passes at Disneyland. But Disney wanted to stress that the prices for previously purchased tickets and passes will not be affected. Luckily, the prices are only increasing by 1% to 3%, so it is not too bad of an increase. These prices are nothing compared to the price hikes of about five or six years ago.
