  • Disney has added seasonal pricing to its theme park tickets. It’s similar to tiered pricing that’s available at many other travel destinations. Here’s the easy breakdown of how it will work. Each month will be divided into value, regular, and peak days. If you’re visiting in September, you’ll pay value pricing for your park ticket. If however, you want to visit around Christmas week, you will pay peak pricing. For full information about the new pricing structure, visit our Walt Disney World ticket page.
