We’re looking forward to our next Disney vacation — especially with the Miami-to-Orlando Brightline route now open — but one thing we’re definitely not looking forward to is an increase in prices. Effective immediately, Walt Disney World is upping the prices on annual passes and parking. This is also the case for Disneyland in Anaheim.
“We are constantly adding new, innovative attractions and entertainment to our parks and, with our broad array of pricing options, the value of a theme park visit is reflected in the unique experiences that only Disney can offer,” a Disney spokesperson shared in a statement.
Date-based tickets, which most visitors purchase, remains at $109 per day for Disney World, but their annual passes have increased. The park offers four levels of annual passes, varying on dates and parks. The Incredi-Pass is now $1,449, with a raise of $50. The Sorcerer Pass is now $999, with a raise of $30. The Pirate Pass is now $799, with a raise of $50, and the Pixie Dust Pass is now at $439, with a raise of $40. However, existing annual pass holders will have the option to renew at special, reduced prices.
In addition to these increases, the price of parking at Disney has gone up $5 to a total of $30. For guests staying at Disney’s resort hotels, parking is free.
Despite these changes, there’s still good news! Disney World is bringing back Park Hopper passes on January 9, allowing visitors to travel between parks at any time of day, instead of waiting until 2 p.m. Find out more about this here.
