A trip to Disneyland — or Walt Disney World — is something that’s likely near the top of most families’ travel wish lists. It’s never been a cheap place to visit though, especially now that Disney has once again increased its admission prices.
Effective February 12, 2017, prices on single-day tickets to Walt Disney World parks in Florida will start at $107, $115 or $124 per adult, while single-day tickets to Disneyland in California will start at $97, $110 or $124 per adult, depending on the time of year you’re visiting. According to an article by CNN Money, prices for annual passes are also higher now, with Platinum Passes increasing by $30 per person and by $40 per person if you want the Platinum Plus option, which includes access to Walt Disney World’s water parks as well as the four Orlando theme parks.
Compared to last year’s prices, it’s really only about $2–$5 more per person depending on which ticket you choose and the travel season you’re visiting in, thanks to a new three-tier system introduced last year that sets ticket prices to match demand during particular times of the year. You’ll find lower prices during off-peak times of the year, for instance, as Disney hopes to bring more travelers in during slower times instead of dealing with overcrowding during peak times, like over the summer and holidays.
Disney is also setting expiration dates on all tickets including multi-day passes, which didn’t previously expire — in the past, only single-day tickets and certain Florida resident passes had expiration dates while multi-day tickets could be used without limit, meaning you could visit one park on a given day, then return on any day you pleased. As of this week, however, once you use the first multi-day ticket, you’ll have to use up the remaining days within two weeks — unless you’re a Florida resident and have purchased a 3-day or 4-day park ticket, which comes with its own rules. Visit the Disney Parks website for more information and to view ticket options with the newly-updated prices.
