Walt Disney World offering deal on ticket prices following price hike at Disneyland
As Disneyland hikes up prices in anticipation of its “Star Wars” land, Walt Disney World Resort is offering some pretty magical deals for its parks.
After news earlier this month that the price of a ticket to Disneyland has climbed to more than $100 a day, Mickey Mouse fans are — at least temporarily — getting a break.
The Walt Disney World Resort is now offering a 4-Park Magic Ticket that will make it possible for visitors to Disney’s Florida complex to spend a day at each of its four theme parks there — the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom — for as little as $85 per day. Visitors are limited to one theme park per day, and they must visit all four parks within a week of their first visit.
The time Disney devotees have to use the $340 ticket is also capped; it’s only valid through March 1, and certain days are blacked out. For an additional $4 or $10, visitors can purchase a ticket for admission on many more dates through Sept. 30.
At Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., a similar offer, which is also available for a limited time, allows guests to spend a day there for $70 by purchasing a three-day, one-park-per-day ticket. There are blackout dates for visitors planning to hit Disneyland and Disney California Adventure theme parks, and those tickets expire May 23, or 13 days after the first use. Locals will enjoy an even deeper discount.
The higher prices for standard entry in California come as Disneyland prepares to unveil its much anticipated Star Wars land, “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge,” in the summer. Its Florida counterpart is expected to open its version in the fall.
People can’t stop watching a moving Facebook video of a Walt Disney World Winnie the Pooh bonding with a disabled boy. Kentucky mom Jessie Barber filmed the spontaneous moment on Monday during a character breakfast at the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom.
