    A 7-day hopper for early April went up $32 so I grabbed an e-ticket from UT that was sitting in my cart. I have an AP that is good until next October but my daughter needed a ticket.

    DVC AP Gold, UP $21.30 per adult including ta...REALLY?:( Didn't have a choice, purchased a 4 day park hopper 60 days ago, intended to upgrade during our Oct trip. Once the news broke about the pricing structure change, I would have upgraded to the AP, but couldn't, since it has to be done in person. >:( Many "predicted" that AP would not change, well here it is!:P 4 day park hopper pass increased by $15.01 per adult, If there is a "silver" lining,:laughing::scratchin to the DVC AP Gold increase, guess at least I should be glad that I "saved" here on our 4 day hopper, 2 of us, $30.02.:goodvibes

    No change in Canadian prices so bonus for us!

    However regular price is up to $1712 for 4 days for June arrival. About $120 ($30 pp). I will say not nearly as bad as I thought.

    For the absolute lowest times, tickets dropped $30 (about $8 pp). I didn't price the flexible use option .

    System is actually very easy to use.

    I’m in the same situation. I tried asking to upgrade noting the upcoming changes and my intention to upgrade and pleading with them that I needed to be able to budget, especially given that my currency had been falling dramatically this year. The answer was simply no. I’m now looking at about $50 extra but who knows how they will calculate it and whether they take the value of the ticket at time it was purchased or value of the ticket had I purchased it now (it’s an undercover tourist park hopper). Very disappointed as that’s about $70AU extra that I hadn’t budgeted and couldn’t predict.

    I like that the Flexible Date option is on a sliding scale. This really softens the blow for those looking for more flexibility with choosing their dates. It also offers a cheap option for cruise passengers that like to visit both pre and post cruise.

    I have to say, I was expecting much worse with regard to increasing prices. This really isn’t too bad in my opinion. Now, if they only offered a “no expiration” option for tickets other than AP certificates they’d be onto something! The junk drawer in my kitchen would be stuffed with forever stamps AND Disney tickets!

    I checked to see the price of one adult ticket for my 7 days in May. It went down $20 after tax on the disney site ($463 vs $443). But I purchased our tickets from Undercover Tourist so they were discounted. I will probably not check their site when they release their discounted prices because I will be sad if I prepurchased and the price actually went down. :(

    Is it just me but I can only see platinum and platinum plus as options for annual passes now. I was wanting to purchase the gold annual passes.

    I didn’t see that. The highest I saw for a 1-day was $129?

    $184 (before tax) is for a one day with park hopper option added. The base ticket maximum appears to be $129 before tax.

    Also, it looks like it is still a significant price break per day going from 4 to 5 days - $15.

    I purchased tickets prior to the change. It would have cost me only an extra $4 a ticket for a 6 day hopper pass, but at least I have flexibility with my dates. That flexibility fee is steep.

    There seems to be more variability in price per day with the 2 and 3 day tickets.

    Not as bad as I thought.

    Once you remove the flexible option, MK is about a 5% increase and the others are about 10%?

    Looks like the 5-day hoppers for my February trip are about $7 cheaper apiece. Does anyone know if it's possible to call and have them apply this cheaper price to my package?

    And I noticed that the cost difference between peak and value prices are only $5 for 7- and 8-day passes, and increases in difference with the fewer number of days you purchase. I wish I had time to do the nerdy math on this, but I’m sure SOMEONE will! :D

    Can someone link the pricing? I can't pull it up for some reason. It just doesn't load anything

    You can always try. You may want to make sure the *entire* package is cheaper, though.
