Disney World ticket prices rise again

Disney raises ticket, annual pass prices at Disneyland and Walt Disney World

The Gold pass, which has two block out periods costs $589, a $30 increase. Well, now it has happened.

Annual passes are also increasing in price. The "value" ticket will cost $97, no change. The prices for Signature and Deluxe annual passes are going up by more than 17 percent, as is the renewal price for a SoCal annual pass, which is no longer available for sale to new customers.

The Florida-resident Platinum pass, with has no block out dates, now costs $729, up from $679.

"Attendance at our domestic parks was up 6% in the quarter", said Christine M. McCarthy, chief financial officer of The Walt Disney Co. on the company's Q1 earnings call Feb.6, noting that "operating income was up 18%" over the prior year for its US operations. Daily tickets rose as much as $11.

Ticket prices at Walt Disney World Orlando and Disneyland in California both have been increased for the coming season.

A one-day adult ticket for Disneyland or California Adventure is $99 for the low-demand days, such as weekdays in May. For "regular" time, tickets will increase $4, making the cost $119 for adults and $113 for children, and the "peak" price will be $129 for adults and $123 for kids. The hike comes after Disney reported increased attendance at its theme parks in its first-quarter. Theoretically, this program would prevent the parks from becoming overcrowded during the busiest seasons. But later this year, the Walt Disney World Resort will begin adjusting prices for multi-tickets based on expected crowd levels, as well. Your Disney World theme park admission tickets will be tied to the dates you plan to use them, just like hotel reservations and airfares.

Disney has several projects in the works including Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, set to open in 2019, a Guardians of the Galaxy coaster at Epcot and a Tron coaster at Magic Kingdom.
