Pricing for the Walt Disney World theme park tickets have increased beginning today. In addition, there are a few other changes that occurred too.

These changes all seem to be gearing up for that big enhancement that’s coming to the Walt Disney World Resort, otherwise known as Star Wars Land to you and me. Disney seems to be getting ready for the influx of crowds for next year by getting started this year.

Two years ago, Disney introduced seasonal pricing at Walt Disney World. That will continue for one day tickets. With the seasonal pricing, each month is divided to include value, regular, and peak days. You would pay Value Season pricing if you visited in September, but if you visit in December during the week between Christmas and New Year’s, you will pay Peak Pricing.

Those who purchase multi-day tickets or are purchasing an annual pass do not currently see seasonal pricing. It may be wise to order your multi-day tickets now however, if you know you’ll be traveling during the higher priced single day ticket seasons, because multi-day tickets will see seasonal tiering later this year. This will be done in an effort to spread out attendance throughout the year and ensure all Guests have a magical experience no matter when they visit.

Here is the full breakdown of ticket pricing for Walt Disney World:

  1. Oh my. A $70 increase for annual passes. I may have difficulty in convincing my husband it is worth the cost. What does it cost to renew annual passes?
