Walt Disney World Ticket Prices to Increase June 3

Planning that trip to Walt Disney World just got a little more expensive, as the company announced yesterday that park ticket prices are set to increase beginning June 3.  The news follows an update that Disneyland would also be raising its prices.

A one-day base ticket for an adult (ages 10 and up) will now cost $89 before tax, while the child’s ticket (ages 3-9) rose to $83.  This represents a $4 increase to the one-day ticket, or an increase of 4.7 percent, and places the price of the ticket one dollar above tickets for Universal Studios. (Universal also just announced a price increase.)

However, even larger increases will be in effect for Disney’s popular multi-day four-, five-, and seven-day passes, which will rise 5.3, 6.8, and 7.9 percent, respectively.  Guests can also expect to see an increase in the cost of adding a “park hopper” option, which allows the ticket holder to visit more than one park each day.  The price of this add-on will go from $55 to $57, an increase of 3.6 percent.

Florida residents take the biggest hit, however, as the popular seasonal pass cost rose $299, or 11.1 percent.

While the news is expected with the expansion taking place across the resort, it still may mean cutbacks for families who must now choose even more carefully how they spend their Disney dollars.
