Study Says Disney World One Day Ticket Could Exceed $250 by 2031
We came across an interesting story on News Channel 8 (WFLA) yesterday regarding Disney World incrementally raising ticket prices and what that might look like a decade from now.
The study was carried out by Koala (a Brooklyn timeshare company) which suggests that by the year 2031, Disney World visitors could be expected to pay over $253.20 for a one day ticket a decade from now.
So how did Koala settle on this figure? According to News Channel 8, the company took the price of Disney World’s current 1-day ticket, another website called Wayback Machine and other resources to estimate the future costs of EVERY Disney theme park in the world!
As we’ve previously mentioned here at MickeyBlog, when Disney opened back in 1971, the cost of a one day ticket was $3.50. That would be $22.81 by today’s standards! However, ticket prices have gone up higher than the inflation rate. Koala estimates and average of 7.4% each year bringing a day pass to its current price of $124.00.
Using the similar trajectory, Koala estimated that if Disney World continues to increase prices at this rate, a day ticket would sit at around $253.20 per person.
So how does this stack up when compared with other Disney parks? Let’s take a look
