Big CHANGES have hit Disney this week.
And now, in news you didn’t already know…Disney World is EXPENSIVE. Shocker! 😉Alright, that’s something you likely already knew and have experience with. But here’s the real kicker — it’s not just Disney. Travel in general is incredibly expensive right now.
We’ve already shared details about how rental car costs, ticket prices, flight costs, and more have increased over the past several months. But, are these increases keeping guests at home? You might think that high travel costs would equal less people out there on vacation, right? Well, the truth might surprise you.
If there’s one thing we think most Disney World fans can agree on, it’s that they hate price increases.
And, we totally get it! Why would you want to pay more for something than you did a year ago if it’s the exact same? But, we see price increases regularly in Disney World — they’re almost expected at this point. Annual Passes, MagicBands, Spirit Jerseys, and more have all seen price increases over the past year. And, even though we’re only a little over 2 months into 2022, there have already been significant price increases in Disney World. So, let’s take a look at what we’ve seen so far this year.
If you’re heading to Disney World soon and haven’t bought your ticket yet, there’s some important price information you need to know about.
Price increases have impacted a number of things around Disney World including HUNDREDS of food items, merchandise items, and more. Now, it looks like price increases are impacting some park tickets too.
Disney World ticket pricing can be a little confusing.
This morning, Disney World released 2022 vacation packages. We noticed that the Disney Park Pass are available for booking into early 2023 and the Disney Dining Plan is still unavailable. On top of this, we DID see some change to day-to-day ticket prices. Wait, is Disney World raising ticket prices in 2022!?
We’ll often see Disney raise prices in the theme parks. Sometimes, the increases are a few cents added to a Mickey pretzel, and other times, it’s a large increase in ticket prices. We can usually predict that Disney will increase prices at some point during the year. However, it’s no secret that this year has been anything BUT predictable!
Walt Disney World had big plans in the making like the huge EPCOT overhaul including attractions, expansions, and an entirely new look. Many of these projects are pushing forward while others were suspended indefinitely. With all the changes, can we safely assume what items will increase in price and when? We’ve gathered a list of items that could see price increases in 2021, based on previous years.
Disneyland guests and annual passholders
were treated to a not-so-pleasant surprise this morning. Whether showing up at the park to buy a one day ticket or annual pass, everyone was greeted with a major price increase — including on the MaxPass service and daily parking as well.
That’s right, if you’re planning a trip to Disneyland you’ll need to save more than a few more pennies to purchase your park tickets or annual passes with this price increase. Some prices went up as much as 25% overnight.
