We believe price increases for multi-day Disneyland tickets are imminent. The last time Disney raised regular ticket prices was February 22, 2015, and they almost always raise prices within a year of the previous increase. We also are hearing rumblings in the rumor mill that ticket price increases may be here as soon as this Sunday.
Universal Orlando has already raised their ticket prices, on February 10, 2016 and Disney normally follows suit.
There is also some suggestion that Disney may be moving to a tiered ticketing method, in which you’ll pay more for tickets that cover peak seasons like Christmas or Spring Break. If they do move to tiered tickets, we think Disney will honor previously-purchased tickets on any day of the year. That would be consistent with their previous ticketing changes.
The bottom line is that if you have a trip planned, our recommendation is to get your tickets now.
Disneyland tickets do expire at the end of the year you purchase them (or the next year, if you purchase them close to the end of the year). Current regular tickets expire at the end of 2016. Completely unused tickets can still be turned in toward the price of new tickets, so if you don’t end up using them you don’t lose the money, but there’s no real reason to buy Disneyland tickets much more than a year in advance.
Stay tuned to our Facebook page for updates wen any price increase is announced.
