Once again, ticket prices look to be rising at Walt Disney World. According to wdwnt.com, ticket prices are set to rise again in mid-February, by a small amount. Disney has yet to confirm when the changes will take place, but the details are likely to be announced in the coming weeks.
WDW News Today also reports that the “no expiration” tickets will be discontinued, although old tickets will still be honored. In recent years, the cost of no-expiration tickets were so high, that it rarely made sense to purchase this add-on, and now the option will be gone.
The final change to come soon is the addition of a water park-hopper pass of some kind. When the details on this addition are announced, we’ll let you know.
Why is Disney Raising Prices Again?
Supply and demand. Let’s face it, parks are packed. People are flocking to the parks in record numbers. Even the “dead periods” of the year don’t seem all that dead anymore. Due to high attendance, preparation and planning has become extremely important.
But as parks fill up, prices will rise. Yeah it stinks, and we all wish it didn’t cost so much, but no one ever said Disney World was cheap!
