    There's a full history of every WDW ticket price increase ever here on the AllEars site.

    As you can see, the when and how much are all over the place. It's anyone's guess.

    I noticed the big difference in 2006. Wasn't this the year that we saw TWO increases. I remember that a few years ago. So possible an increase in January and then another in August? Just wondering if anyone else remembers this.

    No % increase breakdown, but I was working on a comparison to the Consumer Price Index for each year. I only had a half day at work today, so not enough time to goof off.

    First Post... so please forgive me for my lack of knowledge. I purchased 210 points at AKV and have a trip booked for the week after Thanksgiving. I need to purchase two annual passes and can't find the site to do that. I checked all over the mebers site and could not find where to order so am not even sure if it can be done from there. Might anyone have a link to a site where I can purchase them ....so I can get it done before the possible August increase. Thanks...for your help.....Jim

    Not to worry. It's really buried deep in the site. The question gets asked frequently because no one can find it.
