Disney raises their park ticket prices a little bit every year. So it should come as no surprise that they are once again raising the prices of their park tickets. What was surprising was that they are doing that this year in June. Typically, it was done in early August. For most guests staying a week in Disney, the increase is about $20 per person. If you have a large family traveling that can add up.
I recommend you don’t try to save by eliminating the park hopper option on your park tickets because that’s just too limiting. You definitely want the ability to visit one park in the morning and another in the afternoon if you choose. Suppose the day you are in the Magic Kingdom it rains and Wishes Fireworks is canceled. If you don’t have a park hopper, you don’t have the ability to return to the Magic Kingdom the next night to see it without using a whole day on your base ticket. Another problem created by not having the park hopper option on your tickets is making dining plans.If the restaurant you have reservations for is in a park, you need your park ticket to get in. And to get the most for your money, I believe the park hopper is the way to go. There are other ways to save on a Disney vacation package, don’t skimp on the tickets.
One good thing comes from Disney’s prices being raised today….they will now have 2012 package pricing available.
