Disney World Ticket Pricing Increase

We heard of ticket pricing increases coming for Disney World last night and sure enough, they did. Ticket prices for one day at Magic Kingdom has gone up to $99 plus tax.  Ticket prices across the board increased with one exception (though it remains to be seen if this is an error or intentional).

According to ticket pricing on Disney Travel Agents site, pricing for Magic Your Way base tickets, including taxes are (10+/3-9):

  • 2 day – $200.22/$186.38
  • 3 day – $291.81/$271.58
  • 4 day – $313.11/$291.81
  • 5 day – $323.76/$302.46
  • 6 day – $334.41/$313.11
  • 7 day – $345.06/$323.76
  • 8 day – $355.71/$334.41
  • 9 day  – $366.36/$345.06
  • 10 day – $377.01/$355.71

Park hopper and Water Park Fun and More options increased to $63.90 each or $91.59 for both options.  The only exception to this is for 2 and 3 day tickets which are pricing at $52.19 for the park hopper option only.  If you add both options, it is still pricing at $91.59.  This very well could be an error on the site.

No expiration options are still available as well, but have gone up too.  Pricing includes taxes:

  • 2 day – $42.60
  • 3 day – $53.25
  • 4 day  – $106.50
  • 5 day – $170.40
  • 6 day – $223.65
  • 7 day – $266.25
  • 8 day – $287.55
  • 9 day – $314.18
  • 10 day – $362.10

The silver lining in this however, is that package pricing did not seem to increase, just separately purchased tickets.

Every year we see an increase in the ticket pricing at all the major theme parks.  When is it too much?

More Information on Disney World and Disneyland 2011 Price Increases

As we reported yesterday, ticket pricing would be going up starting June 12, 2011.  We have found information (thanks for the tweet link Mike!) about the pricing increases.  We’ll start with Disneyland:

The Premier Passport (annual pass for both Disney World and Disneyland) will increase from $700 to $749.

Over to Walt Disney World.  One day passes will increase from $82 to $85 for 10 and older ($5 increase for 3-9 year old).  Here are the increases for additional days listed by adult/child:

Water park tickets and Disney Quest tickets also increase.  The water parks will be $3 more for ages 10 and up at $49 and $1 higher at $41 for 3-9 year old.  Disney Quest will increase one dollar for either one.

The current pricing will be locked in if you have already purchased your 2011 package, however, if you have not the prices will increase starting tomorrow.
