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 2021, compared to prices in all of 2021.
The prices I show are pre-tax, per ticket day, and rounded to the nearest dollar. For 2021, I left out 1 and 2 day tickets, as they are of less interest and technically harder to color code.
In what follows, compared to other dates for the same ticket length
- 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” for that ticket length. The technical details on how I color coded are at the end of the post.
I begin with an overview of the year see you can see the flow of 2021 price colors in one spot, and then move to two-month calendars.
If you compare 2021 colors to 2020 colors, you’ll note that while the rough calendar of reddish and greenish periods is the same as 2020, there are more red dates in the fourth quarter of 2021 than I have ever seen before.

TECHNICAL DETAILS OF COLOR CODING
For each ticket length:
- Ticket prices approximately in the bottom 10% have darker green fill and black text, with the very lowest bolded
- 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 pinkish fill and black text
- Prices in roughly the top 10% for the year have a darker red fill and black text, with the very highest bolded
- Every other price in between has black text and white fill.
Note that my work is largely based on the rounded per-day prices Disney published. As a result, the “10%” breaks are not exact. Prices shown are also pre-tax.
