A few months ago that gossip hound, Anonymouse, reported that we should be on the ready for Disney World ticket price increase in the near future. That gossip is now starting to look a little more like the truth. There have been rumblings recently of ticket price increases happening earlier than they did last year. In 2012 we saw prices increase in June. This year many sources are saying that an increase could come as early as April 2013!
In the recent Mousesavers newsletter they state “I think it’s possible the Orlando parks price increase could happen at the beginning of April this year. So you may have about 2 months before prices go up, but I’d suggest buying sooner.” Mousesavers is a great source for current deals and discounts and is usually pretty good with these types of predictions as well.
It has also been suggested that no expiration tickets could become a thing of the past. If you are a person who takes advantage of this option to stretch your ticket over a few trips, you should think about buying this sooner than later.
You can buy your tickets now before the price increase and still use them for your trip later this year! Tickets are not activated until first use. Also, If you have already purchased a package from Disney your prices will not increase. However, if you have been hemming and hawing over when to book, now is a good time! The current room and ticket discounts are going to be gone for February and March bookings on Friday. April through June discounts expire for booking March 31. This may be the cheapest you see tickets for the rest of the year not to mention years to come!
Do you agree that ticket prices will be going up or do you think its all rumor?
