Date-Based Tickets Now Available At Walt Disney World Resort
Today sees the launch of Disney’s new date-based tickets for the Walt Disney World Resort. Guests can now purchase tickets using an interactive online calendar, which displays different ticket prices based on the dates they choose to visit. This price can vary depending on the time of year and what day of the week the tickets are for.
Compared to previous pricing, some tickets have decreased, increased or stayed the same, depending on the start date and length of the ticket. For example, a guest purchasing a 3-day ticket with a start date of Feb. 10, 2019 will now actually pay $4 less per day than they would have before. A Guest purchasing a 6-day ticket with a start date of this Thanksgiving will now pay a little more – an average of $5 per day – since it’s one of the most popular times of year to visit.
Disney have made these changes due to the increase in popularity and this new pricing model is part of their broader efforts to better spread attendance throughout the year, and is intended to help them improve and deliver a great experience for their guests. Plus no doubt it will help increase profits for Disney and will allow them to adjust prices for more popular days like Christmas Day in the future.
