Universal and Disney Pricing: The Best Ticket Options
Recently, Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando have raised their prices for both single day tickets and annual passes. While parks raising their prices is normal (especially before spring break) some people will always argue that prices are too high. We’ll go over the prices and options for your vacation planning, and help determine the best deal. Sometimes an annual pass is worth considering depending on how often you visit, especially if you are a Florida resident.
Walt Disney World in Orlando has four theme parks and two water parks. There are three types of single day tickets at Disney: Value, Regular, and Peak.
Value is the slow days, like January and September, while peak is summer, spring break, and Christmas. Regular is the days in between. Magic Kingdom has an additional price added onto it, being the most visited theme park in the world.
Walt Disney World 2017 1-day pricing:
Epcot, Hollywood Studios, & Animal Kingdom:
- Value $99 (previously $97)
- Regular $107 (previously $102)
- Peak $119 (previously $114)
- Value $107 (previously $105)
- Regular $115 (previously $110)
- Peak $124 (unchanged $124)
Remember that these are single day tickets, and purchasing multi-day tickets are always a better option. All of these are adult prices for guests ages 10 and up; children ages 3 to 9 are a few dollars less. Also, these prices do not include tax. You can save $20 when you purchase 3-day or longer tickets online.
*All tickets now have expiration dates*.
