NEW: Big price increases are coming for Disney World tickets and annual passes

NEW: Big price increases are coming for Disney World tickets and annual passes

For a stress-free Disney or Universal Studios vacation, let the FREE expert planners at Royal Carriage Vacations take care of every detail including dining reservations, applying discounts, and onboard cruise credit.

Disney World will soon implement several changes to ticket, annual pass, and park hopper prices. See the latest here.

1-day 1-ticket prices

Beginning December 8, 2022 Disney World will implement park specific pricing for 1-day 1-park tickets. Prices will vary based on park and date.

Animal Kingdom prices for 1-day 1-park tickets will range from $109 to $159 (no increase) while the other three parks will see increases. Hollywood Studios pricing will be between $124 and $179, Epcot $114 to $179, and Magic Kingdom from $124 to $189.

The biggest price is definitely Magic Kingdom, but remember those are only for peak seasons. You will only see $189 for the dates surrounding Christmas and New Years but not at other times of the year.

Change: Tickets will now vary depending on which park you visit.

Another change to note is that beginning on this same date, when you purchase a 1-day 1-park ticket, the system will automatically book a park pass for you depending on which park you bought. This is only true for 1-park 1-day tickets. Multi-day tickets and park hopper tickets are not affected by this change.

Change: 1-day 1-park tickets increase, and the system will automatically make a park pass reservation for you.

Park Hopper prices

Along with park specific pricing, the price to add park hoppers onto your tickets will now be more expensive beginning December 8, 2022. They will vary by date now instead of a flat rate. Right now, that price is roughly $60 per person per day, but we do not have example of what that will increase to at this time.

Do expect to see different prices for different dates. Hopefully this will not increase by much, but we will share when we have that pricing information.

Change: Park hopper prices will increase and vary by date.

Annual Passes

Yes, the sale of new annual passes is still paused, so do not get your hopes up just yet. Additionally, when new sales do resume, expect to see these increases:

  • Incredi-Pass: $1399 (was $1299)
  • Sorcerer: $969 (was $899)
  • Pirate: $749 (was $699)
  • Pixie $399 (no change)

This is reassuring that annual passes will be available for sale once again, but we do not have any information about when that may happen. Do note these new prices for when sales DO resume. We do not have information about annual pass renewal rates at this time.

Change: When annual pass sales resume in the future (no date given), price increases will take effect.

What do do you think of all these new increases? Do you think Disney will resume annual pass sales on December 8 when other price increases take effect? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below and on Facebook.

I am a big fan of Disney. Have been a passholder for 6 years. I so do not agree with the price hike in the annual passes. Really! So much has been taken away. And the price gets higher and higher! So upsetting. Seems more and more Disney is catering to out of town customers. And forget about us passholders . So unfair!

I am holding back on trips, too. Park prices and add Genie+ and Lightening Lanes per person is insane and even with those prices you get fewer rides than you used to get because if the lines. Am sure grandchildren will want to go in a couple of years but cutting out other trips as not enjoyable especially for the price. I let my AP go (and I hear all those yelling yeah so more room fir them which I gladly give). I’m DVC and don’t even have to pay to stay there when I go! Of course dues went up more than usual this year, too! Chapek needs to go!!!!

Lookin Good
