Color-Coded Calendar for Disney World 2020 Ticket Prices



By Dave Shute

I’ve color coded the start dates of the various base ticket lengths in Disney World’s date-based ticket pricing system to indicate less and more expensive ticket dates in 2020, compared to available prices in all of 2020.  The prices I show are pre-tax, per ticket day, and rounded to the nearest dollar.

In what follows, basically

  • The more and the darker the green, the better
  • The more and the darker the red, the worse.

Dates with black text on a white background are everything else–you can think of them as “typical” or “average.” The technical details on how I color coded are at the end of the post.

(The 2019 version of this material is here.)

I have not commented on the charts,

  • Partly because the colors speak for themselves (green during back-to-school periods at the beginning of each semester, red for times when kids are out of school), but
  • Mostly because I expect at least one major price increase. Prices released in July 2019 overall for 2020 went up about 2%, and stayed the same as 2019 on certain key dates–e.g. Christmas to New Years Eve.  That simply won’t stand for very long.

Tickets bought before any price increase will not be affected by future increases. (Unless you buy them as part of a package, and then change something else in your package–If you do so, your package will be marked up to current prices.)

TECHNICAL DETAILS OF COLOR CODING

  • The lowest prices for a ticket length have darker green fill and bolded black text
  • Ticket prices approximately in the bottom 10% have darker green fill and black text
  • Ticket prices approximately in the next lowest 10% have a lighter green fill and black text
  • The next approximately 10% of prices has white fill and green text
  • Dates with prices approximately in the 70th to 80th percentile have white fill and red text
  • Prices approximately in the 80th to 90th percentile have a light red fill and black text
  • Prices  in roughly the top 10% for the year have a darker red fill and black text
  • The highest price of the year for that ticket type has darker red fill and bold black text
  • Every other price in between has black text and white fill.

Note that my work is largely based on the rounded prices Disney published. As a result, the “10%” breaks are not exact. Prices shown are also pre-tax.
