    I heard that the pricing for park tickets is changing. I am going on fall 2019. Is it best to buy tickets before 10-15-18 or wait until 2019? Will ticket prices be increasing?

    Hi Christy,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for coming to us with your question. I’m so excited to hear that you’re planning a fall 2019 Walt Disney World vacation! I just came home from a long weekend with some of my best friends, and I can confirm that autumn is a fantastic time for a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    All of us on the Moms Panel were totally unsure what to expect with the new date-based ticketing system that debuted this past week. Now that I’ve had a chance to check it out a little, what I really appreciate is the ability to choose your vacation dates based on cost – you can play with the calendar to find the least expensive time of year and really customize your visit based on all your trip-planning factors. While the prices for some dates went up, some also went down; you can see a good explanation of the system in this Disney Parks Blog article.

    Christy, I would guess – though I have no official information to confirm this - that ticket prices will increase again before your trip next year. There have been spring ticket price increases the last few years, and we are awaiting a pretty major event in late fall 2019 with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, so I would think there’s a decent chance ticket prices will increase. It’s up to you to decide what works best with your budget and whether to lock in now or wait and watch the calendar tool.

    Have so much fun planning your Walt Disney World vacation, Christy! Please come back and see us if you have any questions as you plan and dream.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
