    ticket price increase coming in August?

    We're going to the World next January and between now and then, I need to get some PH tickets. For budgeting reasons, I'd rather wait until after summer to get them.

    BUT, I'll pick them up sooner if I can get them before a price increase. I realize that increases aren't announced far in advance, so there's a risk it trying to 'guess' at it.

    I heard a rumor about an August timeframe to raise ticket prices. Does anyone know anything more about that?

    It's a good bet that they will raise prices. I'd pick up your tickets now just to be safe if you are worried about an increase.

    Yeah, if you have the funds to do it now, do it now. If I'm not mistaken, Disney usually raises ticket prices in August, so there's a good chance they will do it then. You're going to have to buy the tickets at some point, so you might as well do it now.

    Traditionally, regular ticket prices increase on the first Sunday in August, which this year falls on the 2nd. All ticket prices do not go up the same amount, and there will probably be very little official warning of the increase.

    I agree, they will most likely go up. I don't see why they would not go up. The parks still seem to busy, even if sales from merchandise and table service restaurants are down. I do not think the park admission price "bubble" has hit yet. You could check with MEI Mousefan Travel to see what rumors they have heard. They alway seem to be on top of everything.

    Agreed, the past few years it's been the first Sunday in August.

    I wonder if in this economy they might consider forgoing an increase at this time?

    I think you have a better shot of them leaving the ticket prices low this year than in others, but I still think they'll go up. They're counting on the parks for profit this year.
