Disney announces seasonal pricing for one-day tickets to Disneyland and Walt Disney World

Disneyland closing a few attractions temporarily as they prepare for Star Wars Land


If you’re going to be heading to any of the Disney parks in the near future on a busy day, it is going to cost you a little more as the park announced on Saturday that it is switching to “seasonal” ticket prices.

This means that on certain busy days, a 1-day 1-park ticket will cost you more than say, a slow day in January.

Disney is creating a calendar set almost a year into the future where guests can select dates and see the pricing for that day and purchase them.

Here is an idea of the new ticketing system will work at Magic Kingdom

  • Value Tickets – $105
  • Regular Tickets – $110
  • Peak Tickets – $124

So if you’re wanting to visit the Magic Kingdom on let’s say, Christmas Day? It’s gonna cost you $124. ┬áTicket prices to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot and Animal Kingdom remain slightly cheaper.

Here are the new prices at Disneyland:

  • Value Tickets – $95
  • Regular Tickets – $105
  • Peak Tickets – $119

Prices were $105 at the Magic Kingdom and $99 at Disneyland prior to this new system.

Annual prices and multi-day tickets have not been affected at this time, those increases usually happen in the fall.

What do you think of this new ticketing system? Just an excuse for Disney to raise the ticket prices or do you think it’ll affect attendance at the park?
