Disney World to change pricing
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.
