On Sunday, February 22, 2015, Disney raised admission ticket prices as they usually do each February.

A one-day Magic Kingdom ticket increased from $99.00 to $105.00 (Plus tax), breaking though the psychologically important $100 level.

A one-day ticket to the other three parks increased from $94 to $99.00 (Plus tax).

A one-day ticket to the Disney water parks increased from $53.00 to $58.00 (Plus tax).

The Park Hopper option on a single day ticket jumped from $35.00 to $50.00 (plus tax).

The prices for multi-day Magic Your Way tickets, which many visitors purchase, increased by $1-$2 per day.

These theme park price increases represent about a 5% increase.

The overall inflation rate, or the rate at which prices increase in the economy in general, was a mere 0.8% is 2014 based on data published by the US government on January 16, 2015.  This means that Disney is increasing its prices by a much faster rate than most other things in the economy – about five times as fast.

Other Ticket Changes

Beyond ticket price changes, reports state that Disney made two other changes.

The biggest change is that Disney no longer offers a no-expiration option on tickets.  In the past you could upgrade your tickets so unused days didn’t expire and you could use them on a future trip.  That is no longer an option.

Additionally, one-day tickets to Disney’s water parks will now allow you to park-hop between Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon in a single day.

Disney raises ticket prices.  These are the old prices from January, 2015.
