1) The exact date wasn't known until Friday.
2) But, the increase was public knowledge for about 2-months.
3) We (me and a few other CM's) believe WDW floated a "trial balloon".
4) They wanted to see reactions to a higher-priced MK.
5) Evidently, not enough protest, because now MK is more than the other WDW parks.

Not sure which public knew about it...there were a few rumors but there are always rumors.

MK was more expensive than the other parks already. The price increase last June set MK at $95 and the rest at $90.

Tell me if I understand this price increase: All one day park tickets are increasing by $4.00. All other tickets (multiday) are staying the same. The price of any add ons (hopper and such) are staying the same.

If this is the case, and they don't change any ticket prices for another year or so, then that would mean 1 day ticket prices going up by about 4% and all other ticket prices staying flat, which would be really good all be it unusual news.

So, I wonder if Disney is planning another ticket increase soon on the multiday/add on items?

Inflation yet again? Yeesh. I know Disney wants money money money, but when those one day prices go over a hundred dollars...

Right now I'm seeing an across-the-board increase via the WDW tickets web site. 2-day appears to have gone up $4, 3-day $12, and the rest $15 (without checking every single one).

Park hopper and WPFM are now $60 each (+$1), and the combo is $86 (+$2). Not sure on No Expiration since they don't post those prices - may have to wait for Cheshire Figment to post.

AP increases as well.

For a signle $5 increase for magic Kingdom since the last one, Magic Kingdom is $10 more than this time last year. $99 + Tax

However, multi day passes are also up across the board, and annual passes went up $25. The premiere pass (works at Disney World and Disneyland) is $979 + tax (over a thousand with tax)

Magic Kingdom was already over $100 with tax, now it's closer to $106.

UT and likely most others purchase the tickets in bulk from WDW, then sell them to the public. So they have a stock of tickets at the previous price, and typically sell them off at the previous price.

just bought my park hoppers for May on Saturday. Found out about the price hike when I woke up on Sunday and read about it. So glad I bought before they went up!

Disney prices have increased too much

First, let me say that we are a Disney family and we've enjoyed multiple visits to Disney World per year for the last 8 years. We've been very lucky to live close enough and have the means to take our daughter to Disney so many times. We've even been fortunate enough to purchase annual passes for 3 of the 8 years. It has truly been a magical experience for our family. Unfortunately, I feel that Disney has increased prices too much over the last few years and it is now priced too high for our family to continue. Maybe Disney is going for the once in a lifetime experience where you take the family to Disney World for that one magical vacation and then those children don't return again until they have their own families. I don't know but I do know that we will miss our visits to Disney World.

Hey, at least we are all still healthy and I'm thankful for that. There are many people with much larger problems than not being able to afford a trip to Disney World.
