The money grab: will Disney World begin tiered ticket pricing?

Postby Tink » Mon Jun 08, 2015 11:43 am

As if ticket prices were not high enough, and fastpass+ wasn't annoying enough... now they are toying with the idea of tiered ticket pricing. Essentially, visitors at peak travel times would incur a higher ticket price in the vicinity of $125 per day, while off-peak travelers could enjoy lower prices around $97 per day.

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has been causing a stir online with a recent guest survey about the possibility of paying more for admission based on the day you visit.

People who said they received a Disney emailed survey shows a pricing structure that includes charges of up to $125 for 1-day Magic Kingdom tickets.

Under the hypothetical scenario:
$125 would be charged during the winter holiday and during the entire month of July,
$115 tier could exist for some other level &
$105 tier for current one-day rate.

Disney may be thinking about a new pricing system that would have different prices depending on the day and season that you visit. (Video by FOX35)
There were proposed lower-price tiers for the other parks, which currently have one-day ticket rates of $97.

Disney would say only that it frequently surveys guests on possible changes, some that come to fruition and some that don't.
Earlier this year, Disney raised its ticket prices, breaking the $100 for the Magic Kingdom.

Disney has used tiered pricing for its events such as Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Universal Orlando has used it for Halloween Horror Nights.

Disneyland used to have tiered pricing decades ago by charging pre-defined "tickets" to access rides. But they were only sold in bundles that forced customers to choose which bundle to buy and limited different types of tickets in each bundle that could be used on Tier 1 rides, Tier 2 rides, Tier 3 rides, etc...
Customers were so highly frustrated by that model that Disneyland finally eliminated that bundled ticket model.
