Disney World Ticket Pricing Increase

We heard of ticket pricing increases coming for Disney World last night and sure enough, they did. Ticket prices for one day at Magic Kingdom has gone up to $99 plus tax.  Ticket prices across the board increased with one exception (though it remains to be seen if this is an error or intentional).

According to ticket pricing on Disney Travel Agents site, pricing for Magic Your Way base tickets, including taxes are (10+/3-9):

  • 2 day – $200.22/$186.38
  • 3 day – $291.81/$271.58
  • 4 day – $313.11/$291.81
  • 5 day – $323.76/$302.46
  • 6 day – $334.41/$313.11
  • 7 day – $345.06/$323.76
  • 8 day – $355.71/$334.41
  • 9 day  – $366.36/$345.06
  • 10 day – $377.01/$355.71

Park hopper and Water Park Fun and More options increased to $63.90 each or $91.59 for both options.  The only exception to this is for 2 and 3 day tickets which are pricing at $52.19 for the park hopper option only.  If you add both options, it is still pricing at $91.59.  This very well could be an error on the site.

No expiration options are still available as well, but have gone up too.  Pricing includes taxes:

  • 2 day – $42.60
  • 3 day – $53.25
  • 4 day  – $106.50
  • 5 day – $170.40
  • 6 day – $223.65
  • 7 day – $266.25
  • 8 day – $287.55
  • 9 day – $314.18
  • 10 day – $362.10

The silver lining in this however, is that package pricing did not seem to increase, just separately purchased tickets.

Every year we see an increase in the ticket pricing at all the major theme parks.  When is it too much?

Disneyland Paris Review

Editor’s Note:  Today’s blog is from our friend Anita Newling who recently visited Disneyland Paris.  Thanks Anita!

It was by chance that we found ourselves at Disneyland Paris. A strange mixture of fate and Mummy Math (the thing I do to justify spending on Disney related things!)

We had to fly to the UK for a family wedding and flying via Paris was much cheaper. So we decided to blow what we’d saved on a few days in the French Capital! And being the Disneyphiles that we are, even surrounded by the art and culture of Paris, we couldn’t stay that close to a Disney park and not have a day trip!

And then a day trip turned into an overnight stay! Continue reading

2015 Disney Cruise Line Itineraries

There is so much buzz about when the 2015 cruise itineraries for summer and fall 2015 will come out from Disney Cruise Line.  One agent was certain that they would come out “within 48 hours” a couple days ago, but nothing.  Personally, I think we could see the new itineraries as soon as mid-February, but possibly not until March or April.  So we wait, and speculate, and wait some more.

I thought now would be a good time to speculate!  I also want to hear what you think might be happening.  Here are my ideas with little basis for these thoughts.

  • Disney Dream – 3 and 4 night Bahamas sailings from Port Canaveral on Fridays and Mondays
  • Disney Fantasy – alternating 7 night Eastern and Western Caribbean sailings from Port Canaveral with the addition of Tortola for an Eastern Caribbean port for at least some of the Eastern sailings
  • Disney Wonder – I predict that she will head over to Cadiz, Spain to undergo a major drydock like the Disney Magic did last year.  I think this will happen in May rather than after the season and the Wonder will then go up to the United Kingdom and then do Baltic sailings for the summer months.  Following the Baltic sailings, there may be some Mediterranean sailings and then a Transatlantic where she will go back to Port Canaveral, Miami or New Orleans.  Yes, New Orleans!!  If she goes to New Orleans, I’m hoping we will see some new Western Caribbean stops.
  • Disney Magic – I predict that she will go up to New York City again and have sailings to Canada to include a stop at Quebec City, maybe alternating sailings with Bermuda or the Bahamas and possibly a couple 2 night sailings again.  In the fall, I think she will return to Florida for Bahamas and Caribbean sailings.
  • Unfortunately, I’m predicting no Alaska sailings for the summer of 2015.

I know that the Disney Wonder showed up on the port calendar for a few days in Hawaii, but was removed.  I know a lot of you would like to see Hawaii again, and I hope I’m wrong for your sakes, but I can’t figure that one out into my prediction.

Of course, I could be totally wrong with these predictions, but hey, it’s fun to speculate!  What do you think DCL will do in 2015?  Where would you like to see them go?
