Disney Parks Pricing Changes

Castle1

Just recently, Disneyland and Disney World rolled out new price changes for park tickets. The changes mainly effect 1-day ticket purchases and that really makes the biggest impact on Disneyland visitors. Most guests to the Disney World will stay for multiple days and purchase multiple day tickets. Multiple day tickets at both parks still offer the better discount as the price per day decreases with each additional day you add.

If you are visiting the Disneyland resort this year and plan to visit for one day, now there is a tiered pricing based on the day you visit. The choices are value, regular and peak. If your wondering when the busy times of year are, they are the “peak” price tier. Here is a graphic of the year of the 1-day ticket pricing tiers at Disneyland.

The greatest price breaks come with a 3-day park pass, but here is a quick rundown of multiple park passes at Disneyland:

2-day Adult (Ages 10+): $195/ticket
2-day Child (Ages 3-9): $183/ticket
Park Hopper will add $40/ticket

3-day Adult (Ages 10+): $255/ticket
3-day Child (Ages 3-9): $243/ticket
Park Hopper will add $40/ticket
Magic Morning Early Access with these passes

4-day Adult (Ages 10+): $280/ticket
4-day Child (Ages 3-9): $265/ticket
Park Hopper will add $40/ticket
Magic Morning Early Access with these passes

5-day Adult (Ages 10+): $295/ticket
5-day Child (Ages 3-9): $280/ticket
Park Hopper will add $40/ticket
Magic Morning Early Access with these passes

Disney World has new 1-day ticket tier pricing as well following the same style although their calendar has different peak and regular days, which shows that crowds are different in Orlando. Here are the 1-day ticket pricing tiers for Disney World:

At Disney World, multiple-day park passes are available up to 10-days but here are prices up to one week. The more days, the greater the per day discount (Magic Morning Early Access only available for resort guests):

2-day Adult (Ages 10+): $202/ticket
2-day Child (Ages 3-9): $190/ticket
Park Hopper will add $55/ticket
Adult tickets about $101 per day

3-day Adult (Ages 10+): $290/ticket
3-day Child (Ages 3-9): $272/ticket
Park Hopper will add $55/ticket
Adult tickets about $97 per day
4-day Adult (Ages 10+): $325/ticket
4-day Child (Ages 3-9): $305/ticket
Park Hopper will add $69/ticket
Adult tickets about $81 per day
5-day Adult (Ages 10+): $340/ticket
5-day Child (Ages 3-9): $320/ticket
Park Hopper will add $69/ticket
Adult tickets about $68 per day

6-day Adult (Ages 10+): $355/ticket
6-day Child (Ages 3-9): $335/ticket
Park Hopper will add $69/ticket
Adult tickets about $59 per day

7-day Adult (Ages 10+): $370/ticket
7-day Child (Ages 3-9): $350/ticket
Park Hopper will add $69/ticket
Adult tickets about $53 per day

So it pays to stay more days at the parks although other costs can add up! If you are planning to visit a Disney park for 1-day, remember to check the new tier pricing.

If you are hoping to buy Disneyland tickets for a reduced price, be leary of companies you find on the internet that offer savings as there are a lot of scams for Disneyland. Our friends at Get Away Today offer special deals for Disneyland tickets and are a local travel agent. We also recommend the site Undercover Tourist for both Disneyland and Disney World discount passes although they mainly have multiple day passes. As always, our friends at Destinations in Florida always have deals for Disney World!

Top 5 Reasons to See “Zootopia”

This weekend, Disney’s newest movie Zootopia smashed into movie theaters and surpassed Frozen’s opening weekend record. Our family was one of the many people who went to see the movie and the theater was packed! Why is this movie so popular? What made it such a success? Here are our top 5 reasons why we LOVE Zooptopia! And if you haven’t seen it, your kids will love it!

1) The underdog story: Judy Hops is the lead character of the story and you just love cheering her on. It is the classic story of the determined underdog who wants to show everyone they are wrong. And her character is written so lovable, you can’t help but get behind her.

2) Fantastic story: Besides the underdog story of Judy Hops, the overall story of the movie is unique, twisting, funny and completely entertaining. And we love the underlining theme of not judging people and jumping to conclusions about who they are. There is a whole story line of predators versus prey in this animal world. Can they all be friends? Can they look past these labels?

3) Amazing Characters: Oh, the wonderful characters. I feel like this movie really delivers on wonderful, fun characters that kids LOVE. Each animal character is so fun and clever. Our kids remembered every single one. In the car going home, our kids just talked about who was their favorite, and if your curious, it is definitely Judy Hops, Nick Wilde, and Flash the Sloth (he he!)

4) Family movie about friendship: Guess what? This story has no love story or princess or rescue scenes. Oh, and no death scene that creates the arc for a developing story (i.e. Nemo’s mom dies; Anna & Elsa lose their parents). So this is somewhat of another Toy Story storyline that tugs at our heart and leaves us happy.

5) Great music! So, there is only really one new song in this movie and no one breaks into song during the story. Its not that kind of movie. But the kids loved the new Shakira song that is song by the popstar gazelle and the ending dance scene is fantastic. The song just seamlessly weaves into the story. Love it.

So those are our top 5 reasons to see the new movie. It really is a great movie – our kids want to see it again. And if our top reasons aren’t enough, they said at the end “That movie was almost as good as Star Wars”. That is quite a compliment.
