PLEASE, don’t shoot the messenger!
It is that time of year again, when the Disney Company usually raises cost of admission to all of the Disney Theme Parks. Last year, theme park admission was raised on Aug. 3 with little notice and admission to the water parks was just recently raised.
Rumors are circulating at the Walt Disney World Parks about a possible price hike coming soon. As in last year’s price increase, Disney does not generally give much advance notice of when prices will be going up. The past several times a price increase has occurred it has been on the first Sunday in August – a day that is just around the corner.

Hopefully these rumors are wrong and Disney will keep the prices where they are at, but history shows a pattern of an annual increase. Will 2009 follow suit of previous years? Or will Disney take into consideration the current state of the economy and hold off raising prices until a later date? Only time will tell.
Currently the cost of theme park admission is based on the number of days your purchase for your Magic Your Way Ticket. Prices ranges from $23.70 to $75 per day. Cost per day goes down the more days your purchase. When purchasing a 7-day pass, cost drops down to more than half off a one-day ticket.
