It’s the time we all dread. Rumors of a price increase for Walt Disney World tickets. Every year it happens and every year we think it’s outrageous. Guests vow never to return. Complaints come from all directions. It’s ludacris! And yet every year the parks see an increase in visitors willing to pay the new pricing. It’s just how the process goes.
This year in particular, Disney is itching for a price increase more than ever. COVID-19 kept Walt Disney World closed for 4 months and is still keeping them at limited capacity. And with the loss of Disneyland entirely (going on almost a year now) and less people traveling in general, they are looking for anyway to increase revenue.
Thus it should be no shock that this is happening. We don’t have all the details like how much per ticket or the exact date of it happening (keep checking back) but we can guess it will in the next week or so. And so we make the call for anyone who’s thinking about traveling to Disney World in 2021. Now is the time to buy your tickets! If you want the best savings for your vacation, grab your tickets this week.
Typically tickets see an increase between $5 and $30 per ticket. The ones that get the biggest increase tend to be 1-Day tickets and 5+ with Park Hopper and Park Hopper Plus. Base tickets tend to fall somewhere in the $10-$15 range and 3-Days around $5-$7. With COVID though, there could be an even bigger increase. It may end up being that the average ticket goes up by $30. Only time will tell. For now though, you can save up to $75 on your tickets at 2020 pricing with authorized ticket sellers like Undercover Tourist. As more details emerge about this years increase, we’ll be letting our followers know via our exclusive and free newsletter.
