Walt Disney World raises ticket prices 3-6 percent
Written by Robert Niles
The base, one-day ticket price for visiting Walt Disney World is now $71, up 6 percent (four bucks) from the previous $67. Increases ranged between three and six percent for the various options one can buy under Disney World's 'Magic Your Way' ticket plan.Tweet
FWIW, I just bought a Disney World ticket and opted for the 10-day park-hopper with no expiration option. I used two days and still have eight available, which I bought at the lower price though they'll still be good now and in the future, no matter how high Disney raises. If you can afford the up-front cost, and know that you'll be visiting Disney again in the future, buying the 10-day ticket, no-expire ticket gets you the best deal.
You could do a better deal on a 7-10 day visit to Disney, with no park-hopper and declining the no-expire, but I'd hate that kind of vacation. I'd rather buy the 10-day, as described above, and do a couple or three days at Disney, a little Universal or SeaWorld, a day at the beach or KSC, some pool time and maybe canoeing at Wekiva. Then come back for more in a year or three. But that's me.
