Disney is redefining how Guests plan and book their Walt Disney World vacations. Today it was announced that starting on October 16, 2018, Guests will be able to access an all new online vacation-planning destination and purchase tickets priced by the date of visit.
What Is Changing?
When guests purchase tickets online, they will use an interactive online calendar, which displays different prices based on the dates guests choose to visit, and states when the tickets will need to be used by defining a specific time period. For example, if tickets are purchased from December 1 through December 5, the tickets may be able to be used from December 1 through December 10. The specific time period will be defined by Disney at the time of purchase. The calendar also allows guests to quickly see the lowest-priced days within a month. For example, prices may be lower during off-peak travel periods.
Once tickets are purchased, Disney is encouraging Guests to continue planning their vacation through the My Disney Experience app. Guests can also still use the waltdisneyworld.com website to plan as well.
Why Is Walt Disney Making These Changes?
According to Disney Parks Blog “As our parks have increased in popularity, there are more and more guests who wish to experience our world-class attractions. Introducing date-based tickets and pricing will allow us to better distribute attendance throughout the year so that we can continue to improve and deliver a great experience.”
These updates are rolling out to help Guests plan their most magical vacation. There is so much coming in the coming years to the Walt Disney World theme parks like Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Hollywood Studios, Guardians of the Galaxy in Epcot, TRON in Magic Kingdom, and so much more!
