Dis­ney World to change pric­ing

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - TRAVEL -

Ticket prices at Walt Dis­ney World will vary based on the date picked with a new on­line plan­ning tool start­ing next month.

Dis­ney World of­fi­cials said Mon­day that prices at the re­sort’s four theme parks – Magic King­dom, An­i­mal King­dom, Hol­ly­wood Stu­dios and Ep­cot – will be tweaked so they’re the same in­stead of Magic King­dom hav­ing a higher price.

Dis­ney in­tro­duced flex­i­ble pric­ing at U.S. parks three years ago as an in­cen­tive for guests to visit dur­ing less busy times. Each month was di­vided into value, reg­u­lar and peak days.

Un­der the new plan, which de­buts Oct. 16, prices will vary based on the par­tic­u­lar day. Sin­gle-day tick­ets will range from $109 to $129, de­pend­ing on how pop­u­lar the day is ex­pected to be.

The news comes a few days after Dis­ney an­nounced its lineup for 2019. Among the high­lights:

❚ Star Wars: Gal­axy’s Edge, aka Star Wars Land, will open at Dis­ney’s Hol­ly­wood Stu­dios in fall 2019.

❚ A new night­time spec­tac­u­lar will re­place Il­lu­mi­Na­tions: Re­flec­tions of Earth at Ep­cot.

Vis­i­tors can find the low­est-priced days at dis­ney­world.com.
