Disney World Is Significantly Lowering Its Ticket Prices On May 23
The new 4-park ticket offers its lowest price in years.
Trips to the most magical place on earth are about to get less expensive—just in time for summer vacation. Disney World in Orlando, Florida is set to lower its park ticket prices, with the launch of its 4-Park Magic Ticket, on May 23. With this new addition, visitors will get the chance to experience Disney Magic for as low as $99 a day.
The 4-Park Magic Ticket includes four admissions, on four separate days, or approximately one admission to each of the four Walt Disney World theme parks: Magic Kingdom, Disney's Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, and Disney's Hollywood Studios. The new ticket does not require theme park reservations, but it is limited to one admission per theme park, and one theme park per day, according to Disney World's ticketing website.

It's a sweet discount from the current park ticket prices, which can definitely add up. According to The Points Guy, "a regularly priced four-day Disney World ticket starts at $456 plus taxes ($114 per day, excluding taxes) and goes up to $632.24 plus taxes ($159 per day, excluding taxes) during the priciest times of the year." So the 4-Park Magic Ticket set price is a great bargain for those looking to make the most out of their Disney vacation in a cost-effective way.
According to the ticket booking site, this ticket is valid for theme park admission from June 1 to September 29, 2023. However, visitors should be aware that blackout dates include July 1 to July 4, and September 1 to September 4, 2023, and that tickets "expire within 7 days of first use or on September 29, 2023, whichever occurs first."
Another restriction: Park Hopper access is not part of this new admission option. Park Hopper tickets are a popular option because it allows visitors to visit multiple theme parks in a single day (for example, you can hit up EPCOT in the morning and switch to the Magic Kingdom in the evening).
Under the 4-Park Magic Ticket, guests are restricted to one entry park per day. That makes it the perfect option if you want to fully see each park for a whole day without worrying about running around. Depending on your plans, the main benefit is that it allows visitors to fully explore each park from opening to closing, at a discounted price.
This new ticketing option for the resort's most popular time of year is one of the many changes rolling out to enhance the Disney World experience. It is also shutting down its $2,500-per-night Star Wars-themed hotel, which just opened last year.
The company recently announced several new developments coming into effect as of Jan. 9, 2024. It is bringing back its popular Disney Dining plans, which it discontinued at the start of the pandemic, so that visitors can get pre-paid meals. It is also making changes to the Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes programs, which reduce time spent in line, by allowing guests to pre-schedule their rides and attractions before their visit.
