How Much Has the Price of Disney Tickets Gone Up Over the Years?

Throughout it’s 45 years of existence, Walt Disney World has been in a constant state of expansion and innovation. What you see there today- the parks, resorts, restaurants, retail spots, water parks, etc – have all been added steadily and strategically over the years.

So, as you can expect, there is a pretty hefty price tag associated with all this construction and reconstruction and much of it is offset in annual (or semi-annual) Disney World ticket price increases. The cost for an adult day pass into the Magic Kingdom in 1971 was $3.50 and is now over $100. There have only been a few years in which prices have not gone up and some in which they rose quite a bit.

Here is a fun timeline I recently stumbled across that gives a year-by-year breakdown as to how much Disney tickets cost along with a narrative that describes some of the bigger changes Disney made each year. It is a quick and interesting read and a fun trip down memory lane and an amazing reminder as to just how much Walt Disney World ticket prices have risen in our lifetime.

Enjoy!
