It’s here. The dreaded day of ticket price increases at Walt Disney World. As rumors swirled for the past two weeks guests started purchasing up tickets for 2020 at 2019 pricing. Now that the price increase has happened it’s still possible to get them at old pricing but for a limited-time only. If you’re planning to visit the parks in 2020 now is the time to buy!
As the Walt Disney World Resort continues to expand by adding new lands such as Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Toy Story Land and new attractions like Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, it seems like raising ticket prices is inevitable.
Like the past 4+ years, 2020 saw a price increase happen on 02-11-2020 which falls in line with their unspoken, “sneaky” price increase.
This year some tickets were only raised by a small amount such as the 3-Day Base Ticket which was only raised by about $8.
And then some tickets went up a lot like the 10-Day Park Hopper Plus which went up about $65 over 2019 prices.
The 7-Day Park Hopper went up about $45. So guests can plan on paying anywhere between about $8 to $65 more than 2019 pricing. Like I mentioned above though, you can still get old ticket pricing here for a limited-time.
Along with all their tickets being updated to new pricing, Walt Disney World added a brand new ticket option that combines the Base Ticket with Water Parks and Sports. Guests can now visit one park per day and have the option to visit a water park or sport event with their ticket. This new option costs about $70 plus tax.
Overall this years price increase has fallen in line with past ones and is unlikely to stop each year as they continue to expand their parks.
