A quick heads-up: on December 8, 2016, the price of a TouringPlans.com subscription to our Walt Disney World tools will be $14.95 per year. If you’re planning to renew for 2017, doing that in the next week will save you a couple of bucks.
Our last price increase was 3 years ago – in December 2013.
Since then we’ve created new hotel and dining tools to make your trip planning easier, created our trip planning dashboard; and improved our crowd calendar. For our Disney World touring plans, we’ve added features such as ride at night options for attractions like Kilimanjaro Safaris; the ability to pick your preferred performance time for shows; automatic detection and re-routing around closed attractions; custom ride durations for attractions such as World Showcase pavilions and tours; and more.
We know you have questions, so we will both ask and answer them now.
Is the price for renewals increasing too?
Yes. If you are a current subscription holder, the price to renew for an additional year will increase $1 to $10.95 on December 8.
Are there any discounts available?
Yes there are. If you are a subscriber to the fabulous newsletters put out by either AllEars.net or Mousesavers, they both frequently have discounts for TouringPlans. There is also a subscription discount found in the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World.
In addition, using the fantastic travel agent services at Small World Vacations, AAA Carolinas, or AAA Mid-Atlantic to book your Disney World trip may also entitle you to free (yes, free) TouringPlans subscriptions.
If I subscribe or renew my existing subscription before December 8, what happens?
You’ll get a full year–or an additional year for renewals–of the best Disney World tools available for the current price.
Why are you telling us this ahead of time?
It seems like the kind of thing we’d like to see happen everywhere – tell your best customers in advance about things that may affect them.
Okay, I’m in. What am I getting for $14.95
