These New Price Hikes Make Visiting Walt Disney World More Expensive Than Ever Before

It’s no secret that a visit to Walt Disney World can cost a pretty penny, and it’s also no secret that prices attached to Disney are constantly increasing. Disney+, Genie+, certain souvenirs, and food have all seen price hikes within the past couple of months.

Despite this long-time pattern, it’s still a surprise to hear the latest news about Walt Disney World’s newest ticket price increases, especially when they make visiting the Resort more expensive than ever.

In short, the starting prices for one-day, one-Park tickets to Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT all saw price hikes as of December 8. Animal Kingdom’s starting one-day, one-Park ticket price, however, has not increased, making it the lowest priced ticket.

Walt Disney World’s ticket prices have varied depending on the date thus far, but in addition, the price will now vary by the Disney Park as well. The new variable-pricing system will have these two factors working together to create a price for a one-day, one-Park ticket to Walt Disney World.
