Planning a trip to Disney World this year?
Then you’ll need to buy some tickets. And you should know that the price of your ticket varies based on what day you’re visiting! As you might expect, weekends and holiday seasons tend to cost a bit more than your everyday park day. That’s something to keep in mind if you’re budgeting! We’re breaking down some of the most expensive days to visit Disney World for the rest of the year, so YOU can stay in the know.
We’re looking at prices for single-day tickets. Keep in mind, prices will vary based on length of stay, ticket add-ons, etc.
Like we mentioned, those pricey days are going to be weekends and holidays. So put those 2 things together, and we’ve got some of our most expensive days of the year! Weekends in October leading up to Halloween (specifically October 9th, 10th, 16th, 23rd, 30th, and 31st) will cost you $143 to visit.
Get towards Christmas, and that price goes up even MORE! For the week before Christmas (December 18th-23rd), tickets are $145 apiece.
Our next most expensive tier of tickets is weekends in November and December. Visiting on November 6th, 7th, 13th, 20th, 21st-24th, or 27th — or December 4th or 11th? Your park ticket will cost you $147!
On Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve, your ticket will cost ya $150…
…while tickets for Christmas Day through New Year’s Eve are a whopping $159. And that, friends, is the most a Disney World ticket will cost in 2021!
For comparison, the cheapest ticket you can possibly snag is $109 — that’s the starting price, and you’ll see those tickets being sold during slower seasons. Predictably, you’ll really only be racking up the BIG bucks on tickets during the holiday season. That’s a popular time to visit the parks, so Disney ups the price to meet that demand!
Keep in mind that these prices are for 1-day park tickets. If you buy multi-day park tickets, your price per day will decrease. Similarly, your ticket for every day will reflect the cost of your first day. For example, if you bought a 4-day ticket starting on Christmas Eve, your total would be $139 (the cost of a 4-day ticket starting on December 24th) x 4. However, if your 4-day ticket started on Christmas Day, your total would be $141 (the cost of a 4-day ticket starting on December 25th) x 4. The trick, then, is to start your trip on a “cheaper” day, so you can pay that price for each day of your visit!
Unless you’re visiting the parks during that peak holiday season, you should avoid some of the priciest tickets. And if you’re looking for other ways to save, we’ve got plenty of budgeting tips for ya right here! Happy planning, and stay tuned to DFB for more Disney news.
