As Disney previously announced, Walt Disney World Resort has launched a new online vacation-planning destination and has begun offering date-based tickets and pricing starting today.
According to Disney, tickets may be purchased on DisneyWorld.com, in the My Disney Experience app, over the phone, upon arrival at any of Disney’s four parks or through authorized travel professionals and ticket sellers. Guests can now access several new online planning tools including park offering overviews, travel tips from Disney Parks Moms Panelists and customized suggestions based on each guest’s personal preferences – helping them make more informed decisions on DisneyWorld.com.
Guests will also able to purchase tickets using an interactive online calendar, which displays different ticket prices based on the dates they choose to visit. Check out the video below for a quick overview on how this works.
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.
The change is due to Disney’s efforts to better spread attendance throughout the year, and is intended to help them improve and deliver a great experience for guests.
Once your ticket is purchased, you are able to continue planning your visit with the newly-refreshed My Disney Experience, the one-stop shop for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, where you can view or change your tickets, book dining reservations, make FastPass+ selections and more.

*Usage windows differ between previous and new tickets. Prices are for 1 Park Per Day Tickets, effective Oct. 16, 2018 and are subject to change.
