Another round of Pricing Changes had blown its way through the Disney World website, this time affecting Single Day Tickets and Annual Passes.

Along with the pricing changes, you’ll no longer need to make a park reservation when selecting a one day ticket as the ticket will now be park specific.
Starting next month, each park will have variable pricing, as opposed to the resort having the same single day price for all parks. The pricing range for each park is:
Magic Kingdom – $124 to $189
Animal Kingdom – $109 to $159
Disney’s Hollywood Studios – $124 to $179
EPCOT – $114 to $179
Each of these prices has several points in between based on time of year and projected crowd levels. I could imagine there will be times where Animal Kingdom will see low end pricing while Hollywood Studios, on the same day, has a higher price point.
Keep in mind, these are single day prices only. The 2-10 day packages will not have the per park variations seen with the single day.
Also, since these tickets prices are based on a specific date for a specific park, the park reservation will happen automatically. There’s still a possibility single day tickets could sell out, but it’s unknown if single day tickets will have its own bucket to draw tickets from or if they’ll be tied directly to the regular ticketed guest bucket, is not annual passholder bucket.
Beyond the Single Day ticket price increases, annual passholders will also see an increase at renewal time – no new annual passes are being sold right now except maybe a Florida resident pass. The increases look to be around $100 more per pass type:
Incredi-Pass: $1399 – previously $1299. Sorcerer Pass: $969 – previously $899. Pirate Pass: $749 – previously $699. Pixie Pass: $399 – no change
Demand for Disney Parks has been high throughout the year, so it makes sense to raise prices. However, as someone looking at travel costs next year, it looks like everyone has the same philosophy – raise until the breaking demand is no longer breaking. So if flights, hotels, and tickets all cost more, will you be making a trip next year?
For me personally, I’m trying to figure out how to put everything together and be able to get one trip in. We’ve done a trip about every 6 months since January 2021, but flights are at the highest they’ve been, so I’m not sure if I can efficiently travel with the family and buy park tickets along with a hotel stay.

If you’re ready to start exploring a Walt Disney World or Disneyland family vacation, I recommend checking out Undercover Tourist for your ticket options. I’ve already used them twice, once at Disneyland and once at Disney World and will plan to continue comparing their prices with other sites, however I usually come back to UT because they have the best deals and their instructions make it easy to add your tickets to the Disney apps.
