DVC Members Avoid Worst of Disney Ticket Price Increases

WDW Theme Park News

Most Walt Disney World and Disneyland admission media went up in price overnight, but Disney Vacation Club member discounts rose to match in several key areas.

Magic Kingdom

The standard price for Walt Disney World's Platinum Annual Pass and Platinum Plus Annual Pass rose more than 6% today to $1195 and $1295 respectively. However Disney Vacation Club discounts apparently rose to match, leaving the discounted passes priced at $899 for the Platinum and $999 for the Platinum Plus. The $300 discount on each pass now represents a discount of 30-33% off the standard rate for each of the two Annual Passes. 

Meanwhile the DVC Gold Annual Pass did receive a modest 2.8% increase from $699 to $719. Like the Platinum Pass, the Gold AP provides unlimited admission to the four Florida theme parks but with the addition of roughly 4 weeks of blockout dates around Easter (April 4-17, 2020) and Christmas (December 18, 2020 to January 2, 2021.)

Members who are able to avoid the blockout weeks can still receive about 48 weeks of park admission for 25% less than the cost of the Platinum Pass.  

Note that these prices accurately reflect what is available today but are subject to change at any time. Prices do not include tax. 

Meanwhile, Allears.net is reporting that prices for the Park Hopper and Park Hopper Plus options were increased by $5 each. Also admission to the NBA Experience at Disney Springs has been added as a Plus option. 

So far there has been no word on rate increases for the Magic Your Way tickets at Walt Disney World. Annual Pass prices were last increased in June 2019 while Magic Your Way tickets were adjusted in March

With the opening of Avengers Campus looming, Disneyland upped prices on most of its admission media. Five pricing tiers are now offered for single day tickets, up from the previous three tiers. The lowest tier ticket remains at $104 per day while a Tier 5 one-park pass runs for $154 and a single day park hopper is $209. 

Disneyland Annual Pass prices are also up with the Deluxe increasing from $799 to $829, Signature from $1149 to $1199 and Signature Plus from $1399 to $1449. The only DVC discount offered for Disneyland tickets is the $20 price reduction on Annual Passes. 

Disneyland also raised the price of its MaxPass service from $15 to $20.
