You know I’m a Disney girl! And I love going to the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World as much as I enjoy my time at The Happiest Place on Earth, I do hate when we have to wait 45 minutes to and hour at some of our favorite attractions, Disneyland executives came out with a solution and if you’re willing to go on a weekday, “low-demand days” you’ll pay less! Although if you go on “Peak” days you’ll pay more.
This week Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World announced seasonal prices for single-day tickets with hopes this move will decrease crowds at Mickey’s house on the West and East Coast. This is an example of Disneyland Resort Ticket prices.
Starting March 1st, you’ll be able to look at a calendar eight to eleven months in advance to see which days are considered “value,” “regular” or “peak.” Guests will pay more on “peak” days — when busier times are forecast, but if you’re willing to visit a Disney park on a Tuesday in March for example, you’ll pay a few dollars less and you can expect less crowds. On the other hand if you go on a weekend in Spring Break or June for example, You’ll pay about $20 more per dongle day ticket.

Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World are more popular than ever specially on weekends and Holidays, this due to their new attractions such as “Star Wars Launch Bay” at Disneyland Park and Frozen over at Disney California Adventure. Also since May of 2015, Disneyland Resort is celebration its 60th Anniversary offering 2 new parades and a new fireworks show.
Walt Disney World also has new attractions such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and new Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom and this coming April Rivers of Light will unveil at Animal Kingdom.
In California at Disneyland, the “value” ticket is going down $4 to $95. The “regular” ticket price will be $105 and the “peak” will be $119.
“Value” days for the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Orlando will cost $105, the same as a current, one-day ticket price. “Regular” days will be $5 more and “peak” days will be $124.
Over a 12-month period, 30% of the days will be “value” days, 44% will be “regular” days and 26% will be “peak” days, Disney calculates. Disney said once the prices are posted, they won’t change. Multi-day ticket prices will also change, beginning immediately. But prices for annual passes won’t change.
“The demand for our theme parks continues to grow, particularly during peak periods,” Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown said. “In addition to expanding our parks, we are adopting seasonal pricing on our one-day ticket to help better spread visitation throughout the year.” Personally, I like this new pricing system at Disney Parks because although it means less waiting in line at the on demand attractions. From October to December of last year, , the company reported a 10% increase in visitors at its parks, they reached new attendance records. During the holiday season, Disneyland has been forced to stop selling ticket for a time when the park reaches maximum capacity.
Season of the Force in Tomorrowland at Disneyland opened the fall of 2015 and it has brought a bigger crowd to the park (CLICK HERE to watch the video of Season of the Force) And a 14-acre “Star Wars Land” is in construction at Disneyland right now and there are plans to add a new stage show based on the popular “Frozen” movie later this year.
So although some of the ticket prices were increased, Disney parks are also expanding and offering you new attractions and shows.
I know it could be expensive to visit Disney Parks, but as you know there’s no other place in the world like these parks. Disney memories last forever!
