    Thank you jerseygal for responding to my question. I can get the page that shows the base one day pricing options with the title "A Ticket for Every Kind of Visit" but when I click on the link below it that says "View All Ticket Options" it takes me to a page with a phone number that tells me to call WDW for assistance. I'm just wondering if the site is not quite working yet for mobile phones/iPads yet and you need to be on a laptop to see the pricing for now.

    That poster was comparing gate prices to UT discount prices though - not an apples to apples comparison when discussing overall rate increase percentages.

    Thats the price range that was in that Forbes article I shared on the other ticket thread a week or two ago. I thought for sure it was too good to be true. Guess not.

    not sure if this helps or not, but I was getting that too (and looked like things were not working right) - but then just waited (maybe a minute or 2?) and eventually the correct screen came up where I had to first pick the number of days I wanted and then the first date of my planned visit

    So priced out what the tickets would be for our trip next year - we are planning to go next August for the planned DIS event and figured others might be thinking of that as well.

    A 5 day with park hopper starting on August 7th came up to $519.72 with tax. ... I paid $458.33 from UT yesterday with their get a 5th day free on a 4 day pass - so like $61.39 savings or ~12%, so I'll take that!

    our October trips tickets increased 11% with the new pricing- if you take 10% across the board that’s a lot of $$$ Disney is getting

    I have added AP pricing increases, images, videos, and much more to the first page. In the FAQ section please let me know if there are more questions and answers you think I should include or if you have questions yet.

    Does anyone know if UT (and other third-party sellers) will be discounting tickets under the new system?

    Does anyone have a clue when information about upgrading will be available? Or it just a wait and see approach?

    I have 10-day park hoppers to upgrade on December 29. Jut wondering what value I’ll get for the tickets.

    Upgrading should be available immediately. As for value I believe you get as least what you paid for.

    If I have a previously purchased Magic Your Way Tickets tickets in my account (3 day hopper) and I decide I want to upgrade it to a 5 day hopper can I do that online now? Will that change it to this new type of ticket with date restrictions?

    I haven't seen this posted yet, but in the fine print it says that the dates on non flexible tickets can be changed up to the day before the start date. Users changing to the higher price would have to pay the difference. Guests changing to a lower price will not be credited for what they overpaid. From the text of the notice it looks like you will also be allowed to add days to the ticket or make other options as long as they are more expensive. Here is the exact text:


    "You can make changes to your tickets, including your ticket dates, prior to midnight ET of the day before your ticket’s first valid use date, Dec 30, 2018. There’s no change fee to modify, but an additional cost applies for dates with higher ticket prices. No refund or credit is given for changes from dates with higher prices to dates with lower prices."

    I believe this makes the "flexible option" a suckers buy unless you need the 14 day use window instead of the use window that comes by default with the number of days you are buying. The ability to change dates is included

    For the love of Mickey, would it have killed them to make the calendar a drop down?@?!? Scrolling through months one at a time is agony.

    No changes to AP types (but we knew at least this much from ravenclawtrekie)

    The AP TYPES wouldn't change, there was no assumption one way or the other regarding price increases

    I'd say no because their fine print says if you change dates and the prices go down you won't get a refund. Besides that, you can always go in and rebook your package yourself


    It's not 10% across the board. Most increases are less and some even dropped in price.

    They confirmed right after the price change announcement they will. They have known the prices, just couldn't discuss them.

    It is mentioned on the website that you can still upgrade but you won't get a refund if you change to a cheaper day

    Also, if you are staying on site you won't need to worry about the 14 day use window since they will automatically be valid for your length of stay (based on knowledge we had at least, don't think that changed) and for those that didn't need them to be valid till 2019, this is a benefit as I think their making this an add on is what has made some tickets go down in cost.

    Does anyone know what the Disney price of a 10-day park hopper was (with tax) before the changeover?
