Disney Introduces Park-Specific Ticket Pricing and Price Hike For Annual Passes
Updated: Nov 18, 2022
In August, Walt Disney World rolled out updates to the Disney Park Pass system which allows guests to modify their theme park reservations and book with different admission types. Focusing on providing guests with the best, most memorable Disney Experience, Disney has shared an update about what’s ahead, beginning with some changes coming on Dec. 8.
BEGINNING DEC. 8:
1-Day, 1-Park Tickets
Beginning Dec. 8, Walt Disney World will introduce park-specific pricing on 1-day, 1-park tickets. Moving forward, guests will select a date and theme park before purchasing their ticket. When you purchase a 1-Day ticket for a specific date and theme park, a theme park reservation will automatically be made at the time of purchase.
This change is only for those who purchase 1-day tickets for a specific date and park. Most guests will continue to make theme park reservations.
With the new park-specific pricing, Magic Kingdom Park will be priced at or above the other theme parks due to the incredible demand, as it remains the most-visited theme park in the world. A 1-day ticket for a specific date and park will range from:
Disney’s Animal Kingdom: $109-$159 (same range as today)
Disney’s Hollywood Studios: $124-$179
Magic Kingdom Park: $124-$189
Note: The $189 price point is specifically for the week of Christmas to New Year’s.
Park Hopper Add-on
On Dec. 8, Disney will update pricing on select add-on options, including the Park Hopper Option and Park Hopper Plus Option.
On Dec. 8,Annual Pass pricing for the Incredi-, Sorcerer and Pirate Annual Passes will increase between $43-100. The Disney Pixie Dust Pass will remain at its current price.
The Disney Pixie Dust Pass remains available for purchase, as Disney's other three Annual Passes remain unavailable for new sales for the time being. All Annual Passes continue to be available for renewal.
