...And the other shoe drops. Disney World raises ticket prices
Published: June 1, 2012 at 2:22 PM
One-day tickets go from $85 to $89, topping Universal Orlando's recent price increase by $1. A 10-day base ticket goes from $291 to $318. The park-hopper and 'water parks & more' add-ons go from $55 each to $57 each for base tickets of two days or more. (Park-hopper remains $35 extra for a one-day ticket... but why would you buy that?)
Apparently, there is a pot of gold at the end of that rainbow. But not for you.
For those of you who like to buy in advance to lock in your ticket price, the no-expiration option rises from $225 for a 10-day ticket to $275.
The premiere annual pass goes from $649 to $699, while the "regular" annual pass increases from $519 to $574. The 11 percent increase on annual passes is much smaller than the 30 percent increase levied on Disneyland annual passholders last month.
However, Disney World will now match Disneyland's policy of no long offering child's prices for annual passes. That means a big increase for kids' APs - from $478 to $574 for the regular AP, and $598 to $699 for the premium. That's a 20 percent increase for the annual pass for a child, age 3-9.
