Disney World 2016 Price Seasons



By Dave Shute

2016 RESORT PRICE SEASONS AT WALT DISNEY WORLD

Disney World 2016 Price Seasons from yourfirstvisit.netThe material below shows resort price seasons at Walt Disney World at different times of the year in 2016.

(For 2017 prices, see this, and for 2018 prices, see this.)

Only one-day ticket prices vary over the course of the year–multi-day tickets do not, although they typically have an annual increase during the year. See this for more on ticket prices.

Resort prices, however, can be almost twice as high during some periods as they are at others.

2016 DISNEY WORLD PRICE SEASONS

Below are Walt Disney World 2016 resort price seasons by resort type. 

“X% Higher” means compared to the lowest prices of the year. Because these increases are different on some weekends vs. weekdays, increases are averaged across the recommended 8 night visit.

In addition to the details below, Disney ups prices an additional $10-50 per night during certain weekends and holidays–particularly over the Marathon weekend, Martin Luther King Day weekend, Memorial Day weekend, 4th of July weekend, and Columbus Day weekend.

Hi, if we go the day after or 2days after Christmas, what woukd you recommend to keep prices doen and convenient travel in and out of Disney World? Taking a 5 year old. Thank you!

PS if we stay off site away from Disney. What woukd you recommend? I have health issues. Looking for hiw a DAS, fast pass and a handicap placard will help. Thanks again.

Shannon, those are the most crowded and expensive days of the year. There’s no real difference among days between Christmas and New years. Thousands of others will also be using DAS and a placard, so there too you won’t see much difference…Sorry to not be much help…
