With today’s rollout of an entirely new “date-based” ticket pricing system, Walt Disney World has also raised the prices of various other offerings.

The price of a solid color MagicBand is now $15.97 including tax, up from $12.99 plus tax. All other prices are up $2 as well, with open edition bands now at $24.99, and limited release bands at $29.99. Currently available limited edition MagicBands are unaffected by the increase, but future releases may be higher.

Parking rates are up as well at the theme parks today:

  • Automobile: $25.00 (Up from $22)
  • Oversized: $30.00 (Up from $27)
  • Preferred: $50.00 (Up from $45)

Various annual pass prices were raised. Below you’ll see the regular price followed by the Florida Resident price is applicable (you can see previous pricing set earlier this year here):

  • $20 says Disney raises ticket and AP pricing again in the Spring. Gotta pay for Galaxy’s Edge and the $15 minimum wage.

  • I’m retired and will have to consider going back to work just to afford my Disney habit. Certainly getting to be the land of the Rich$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

  • Hey Cast Members, You’re Welcome for your $15/hr wage hike.

    If only the customer experience at the parks was improving at the rate of price hikes instead of nearly having to wear a hard hat to enter each park

    • Yeah, that’s right!

      If those greedy cast members worked for FREE then “maybe” prices would go down…!

    • Just to clarify they don’t make $15 an hour yet. It won’t happen until at least three years from now. The prices would have increased regardless of the wage increase because people continue to pay whatever they tell you to pay!

  • Who is going to pay my mortgage and everything else that I own like everybody else we have to work to make a living. Just because they work at the Disney Company doesn’t mean that they get a lot of money the rain that they had they deserve it there a lot of people they have to work double jobs to make a living here in Florida

  • It doesn’t make sense to gouge Florida residents. Our pay isn’t increasing, so we won’t be able to afford to go. Seems like they are going to lose money. If residents prices were lower with free parking, we go a few times a year instead of once every few years.

  • Good job Disney, had to give up my tickets a couple of years ago, can’t even afford to take the family for a day, with lunch, parking, something for the kids and paying for six people it’s close to a $1,000 for the day. They don’t want Americans only the foreign money.

    • Don’t want Americans? They want anyone & everyone who’s willing & able to pay, period. Money is money, makes no difference who’s providing it.

  • Walt would be and probably has been rolling in his grave for quite some time. This was a place built on his dream to provide fantasy for everyone. Not just the super rich. Shame on you WDW.
