Disney World ups Admission Price for New Year

Although Walt Disney World doesn’t have the highest theme park admission price in Central Florida, that honor goes to Sea World, it does feel that a price change of 3-5% can be withstood by the market. They did just experience another strong year of growth, but the numbers still aren’t there to justify adding another gate. So… how to control growth while maximizing profits? Raise the admission price.

With the ‘Magic Your Way’ tickets they implemented last year it pays to stay for 7 days. They’ll cut your ticket price almost in half with the knowledge that you’ll be at their parks and resorts buying food and trinkets instead of visiting other Central Florida attractions. (And it seems to be working, Universal Orlando had dismal growth this year).

If you’re planning to visit the Walt Disney World resort in 2006, has the ticket increase changed your plans at all? Let us know in the comments.

    I can’t say that I’m thrilled about any price increase, but truthfully I’d rather pay a little more if it ment smaller crowds. And, for the quality entertainment you get at Disney parks it’s well worth it. There’s a nearby amusement park that is a little more than half the price of a Disney day pass, but I would gladdly give up going there 10 times to go to a Disney park once.

    I hate the fact that prices changed. I won’t be tricked into staying 7 days just to say. I see the play 4 day is over and the 3 day without hopper is a joke. I hate having to pay extra to hop from park to park.The Disney website is totally unfriendly.
