Exciting and Not So Exciting Disney News - October 11, 2023


Dale, Let's Disney!

All-Day Park Hopper Access is coming back! But, what else are they trying to sneak by us?

Beginning January 9, 2024, you will be able to Park Hop without a time restriction! Since COVID, you were only able to Park Hop beginning at 2 p.m. at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. This is exciting news because it will make the 4-Park Challenge way easier and you will also be able to hop on over to Magic Kingdom or EPCOT if you aren't already there to get in the virtual queue for Tron or Guardians of the Galaxy at 1 p.m.! However, in typical Disney fashion, when good news comes out there is bound to be a downside. In this instance, that surely was the case. Disney got us all excited for All-Day Access to Park Hopping but quietly raised prices for Annual Passes, Parking, Memory Maker, and Tours. For instance, Pixie Pass was $399 and is now $439

Pirate Pass was $749 and is now $799

Sorcerer Pass was $969 and is now $999

Incredipass was $1399 and is now $1449 Standard Parking has also increased from $25 to $30

Preferred Parking has increased to $45 - $55 depending on the day

Personally, we were looking at the Keys to the Kingdom Tour at Midnight today and it would have cost us $207. When I checked at 10 a.m. this morning it went up to $270. This leaves you thinking, what did they even do to enhance this tour for it to be $63 dollars more in a few hours difference? The answer is probably nothing. As with everything else around us, prices are going up and don't seem to be coming down. It is unfortunate and frustrating, but I guess Disney still hasn't made up for its losses during COVID.

Moreover, Disney's year-end is September 30th, so it makes sense why all these changes are happening in October. It is the start of their new fiscal year and they want to increase their revenue.
