Mobile Shocked!

Just looking at Disney tickets for next year - shocked at the price increase from 2 years ago - we paid around 280 per person for 14 day ultimate tickets then. A huge increase since then 😥 are Disney getting too greedy or is the price increase worth it for extra rides/experiences does anyone know please? Thanks

Value for money is a very subjective thing. Yes the prices are sky high - Disney must be pretty confident they can encourage visitors otherwise they'd not be charging the prices they are.

I guess it'll boil down to how badly you want to go.

That's from their parking fees alone, surely.

To be fair to WDW, DLP's parking fees are even more extortionate - 30 a day if you're not staying onsite.

I think theyve been around 400 for a few years now. Im guessing you got yours last time when they had that deal/sale on a couple of years ago for a month or 2. That took them under 300, but it hasnt happened since.

The poor exchange rate now is obviously a factor too.

Not sure where you got your tickets from. Sounds like you got an absolute bargain!

This time 2 years ago (2017), the tickets for 2018 were 419. See the following thread from two years ago where the OP was also "shocked" at the price hike by in 2017:

https://www.thedibb.co.uk/forums/sho... php?t=1038441

So the price of the 2020 tickets now aren't that much different to what the price of the 2018 tickets were back when they were first released.

As I mentioned in that thread 2 years ago, in order to get tickets for 2017 at 284 the OP in that thread must have either bought the tickets before July the previous year (2016) or whilst Disney had their 25% discount on early in 2017. Because by August 2017, the 2017 ticket price was 379 and the 2018 ticket price was 419.

If you want a better price for 2020 tickets you could either wait until the end of this year when I suspect ticket prices will reduce or hope that the exchange rate goes back to what it was.

As to whether the increase in price is worth it based on the new experiences, that really depends on the person. Some would say no, some would say yes. I've booked and paid for tickets next year so, for me, the price is worth it.

For what its worth we bought our tickets in 2016 for 2017 and it was 350 for 14 days

We bought them again in 2018 for 2019 and it was 399 - if I was to buy them today for this October I would be 385

and if I am wanting for next October its 449

yes its a jump but not massively so over a four year period and given the dollar has nose dived
