In typical Disney style, something is always changing at the Walt Disney World Resort. Coming in October, Walt Disney World will make changes to their vacation planning website and the way tickets are priced for guests.
Disney says these changes will give guests “easier ways to plan a vacation with personalized options that fit their individual needs.” Beginning Oct. 16 on DisneyWorld.com, guests will be able to access the new online vacation-planning destination and purchase tickets priced by the date of their visit.
According to the DisneyParksBlog, “these changes are designed to simplify the booking experience, give guests an enhanced way to purchase theme park tickets and help them more easily plan the Disney vacation of their dreams.”
The new online vacation-planning destination will feature park overviews, travel tips from Disney Parks Moms Panelists and customized suggestions based on each guest’s personal preferences – helping guests make more informed decisions.
The website will also feature an interactive online calendar, displaying prices based on the dates the guests are looking to visit. This calendar will allow you to see the lowest-priced days within a month, to further help with planning. Tickets purchased will now have to be used during a specific time period.

Once tickets are purchased, guests will still be able to continue planning their vacation on the website through My Disney Experience as well as the My Disney Experience mobile app. Guests will also be able to access the interactive calendar on the app and purchase their tickets on the go.
Disney said they are making these changes due to the increased popularity of Walt Disney World parks. They hope the date-based ticket pricing will allow them to better distribute attendance throughout the ear as they continue to improve and deliver a great guest experience.
