Now, it will cost even more to attend Walt Disney World, which is actually sort of hard to believe.
You already had to surrender your firstborn just to get into the park.
Not really, but it sometimes feels that way.
But per Disney, if you want to go to Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios or Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you will have to pay anywhere from $109 to $189 just to get inside. Disney announced the price hikes earlier this week.
Price will vary by date and park, but here are the general figures:
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom: $109-$159
- Disney’s Hollywood Studios: $124-$179
- EPCOT: $114-$179
- Magic Kingdom Park: $124-$189
“We continue to focus on providing guests with the best, most memorable Disney experience, and we’re doing that by growing our theme parks with incredible new attractions and offerings,” a Disney spokesperson said, via Fox News. “We are also making planning easier with new 1-day tickets that automatically include a guest’s theme park reservation and continue to provide a wide range of options to visit throughout the year, including our lowest priced ticket of $109, which has not changed in more than four years.”
Along with that, annual passes have been raised to anywhere from $43 to $100.
This is Disney’s second price hike of the year, by the way. And the news comes shortly after Bob Iger was brought back as CEO to help rescue what appeared to be a suddenly strapped company financially.
“Back in 1971 when the park first opened, admission tickets were $3.50,” Fox News wrote. “According to an online study by Koala, a company that helps connect travelers to timeshare rentals, a ticket to Disney will cost a guest $253.20 in the year 2031.”
