What Does Date Based Pricing Mean at WDW?
Ticket Pricing is now DATE BASED for Walt Disney World
Guests are now able to choose/purchase tickets based on the dates they plan to visit Walt Disney World.
Some things to know about the new date-based tickets:- 1-Day base tickets are good for admission on the specific start date selected. There are no longer separately priced 1-day tickets for Magic Kingdom vs Epcot/Hollywood Studios/Animal Kingdom
- Multi-Day tickets are good for admission beginning on the start date selected and must be used within a designated time period. This use period below applies to ticket only purchases - tickets purchased in a Walt Disney Travel Company package have different use guidelines.
Only the start date selected
Any 2 days within 4 days beginning on the start date
Any 3 days within 5 days beginning on the start date
Any 4 days within 7 days beginning on the start date
Any 5 days within 8 days beginning on the start date
Any 6 days within 9 days beginning on the start date
Any 7 days within 10 days beginning on the start date
Any 8 days within 12 days beginning on the start date
Any 9 days within 13 days beginning on the start date
Any 10 days within 14 days beginning on the start date
For guests who have booked a travel package, valid use dates for park tickets will defer to the longer of:
- The guest’s length of stay, from check-in date until midnight of the check-out date.
- The standard valid use period for the ticket selected.
For example, if you purchase a 5-day ticket for your 7-night stay, tickets will be valid from your check-in date until midnight on your check-out date. Whereas, if you purchase a 3-day ticket for you 2-night stay, you will 5 days from the start date of your tickets.
Any unused and unexpired tickets will remain valid in accordance with the terms stated at time of purchase.
Are your plans uncertain or do you want the most flexibility possible? Guests can also purchase a Flexible-date ticket that do not require a designated start date and are valid 14 days from first use.
With this new system, guests can still purchase tickets through an On The Road Travel team member and can use an interactive online calendar that displays different ticket prices based on the dates they choose to visit.
To purchase stand-alone tickets, guests will need to tell their On The Road Magic Planner the number of days they are looking to visit the parks, as well as the first day of ticket use. The calendar will show per-day pricing based on the start date and the length of ticket.
Once start date is selected, the total cost of the tickets, as well as the valid use dates, will be provided. (Previously, all tickets were valid for 14 days from first-use. Now, the period of validity ranges from 4 days for 2-day tickets to 14 days for 10-day tickets.)
Whether you are making a ticket only purchase or booking a Walt Disney World travel package, your On the Road Travel Magic Planner can assist you in finding the ticket time period and ticket type that is just right for you,
Daily ticket costs decrease as your length of visit increases, so the more you play, the less you pay per day.
Looking at the breakdown, a one-day ticket starts at $109 and tops out at $129.
A 10-day ticket now ranges from $44 per day, all the way to $51 per day.
