Walt Disney World has released plans to begin pricing tickets for its theme parks based on dates. Beginning Oct. 16, when travelers purchase theme park tickets for Walt Disney World online, they will use an interactive calendar that displays different prices based on the dates.
When tourists visit the website, they will choose the first day of their planned trip. This will then set the daily rate they are charged for the number of days they plan to visit one or more of Walt Disney World’s four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Consumers have the option to purchase tickets that they can use at any point during the following year.
Single day prices will be calculated based on the day people visit rather than the park visited, and will range from $109 to $129 for a single ticket, up from a previous range of between $102 and $129. (The price per day is cheaper for those who purchase tickets for multiple days.)
Not everything about buying a theme park ticket for Walt Disney World is changing. Consumers can still purchase tickets from Disney by phone or online through an authorized third-party re-seller such as Undercover Tourist or Park Savers.
