Here’s yet another reason to carry your own beverages into Walt Disney World: prices for soft drinks (sodas…pop…cokes…whatever you happen to call them in your region of the country) at many of the restaurants throughout the Parks have just gone up from $2.19 and $2.49 to $2.59 and $2.89 each! (That’s a 40 cent price increase, for those of you who are math-challenged.) There doesn’t appear to be an increase yet on bottled water, milk, coffee, or juice at this point, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see that soon.

Disney really threw me for a loop on this one! Traditionally, they raise park ticket prices in August, but I just learned that Both Walt Disney World (and Disneyland, but I only deal with the World on this site) will increase ticket prices beginning Sunday, June 12. One-day, one-park ticket prices are going up $3 from $82 up to $85. Likewise, a 10-day ticket is now $30 more than before. Prices for DisneyQuest and the water parks are increasing as well. The official Disney Parks Blog has an article detailing the new ticket prices here.
If you know you’ll be going to WDW this year, you might want to purchase tickets online now. Tickets without the “no expiration” feature do not expire until 14 days after first use. So, conceivably, you could purchase your tickets now for a trip well into the future.
Outside ticket vendors will likely begin raising their prices as well, once their current ticket inventory is depleted. So…get ‘em now while they’re cheap! (OK, not cheap…just not quite as expensive.)
Here’s the breakdown of the new ticket prices that are effective tomorrow, August 5. Prices do not include tax.
|Base Ticket||Base Ticket||Park Hopper
or Water Parks
|Ages 10+||Ages 3-9||$54|
It’s almost August, and you know what that means: time for a park ticket increase! If tradition holds, this Sunday will mark ticket price increases for all Magic Your Way tickets, including multi-day passes and add-ons such as Park Hoppers and Water Parks & More.
Since Disney tickets don’t begin to expire until your first use (even those without the non-expiration feature), if you know you’ll be going to WDW in the next few years, it’s not a bad idea to purchase tickets now, as prices will with all certainty go up each year. (Of course, buying your tickets separately does prevent you from taking advantage of discounts where a Magic Your Way package purchase is required, so keep that in mind when deciding what the best deal might be for your trip.)
I’ll have new official ticket prices posted once they go into effect.
