New Online Planning Tools, Date-Based Tickets Launch Today at Walt Disney World

As we previously announced, today is the day that the Walt Disney World Resort launches their brand new online vacation-planning tools as well as their date-based theme park tickets and pricing.

Just as before, guests will have all the same options to purchase their park tickets including visiting any Guest Services location upon arrival, using the My Disney Experience app, and through authorized travel professionals and ticket sellers.

Guests can now see and access numerous new online planning tools which include park offering overviews and travel tips from the Disney Parks Moms Panel who provide customized suggestions and tips based on each guest’s personal preferences.

Additionally, guests will be able to buy their tickets using the new online interactive calendar, which will display different ticket prices based on the dates chosen to visit. The video below offers a quick overview showing how the new process works.

“Compared to previous pricing*, some tickets have decreased, increased or stayed the same, depending on the start date and length of the ticket. For example, a guest purchasing a 3-day ticket with a start date of February 10, 2019, will now actually pay $4 less per day than they would have before. A Guest purchasing a 6-day ticket with a start date of this Thanksgiving will now pay a little more – an average of $5 per day – since it’s one of the most popular times of year to visit.”


*Usage windows differ between previous and new tickets. Prices are for 1 Park Per Day Tickets, effective October 16, 2018, and are subject to change.
