News and Views

Happy New Year!

Aside from a price increase, news is pretty light this New Year's week, but we've got some night-time photos of Disney's Animal Kingdom (taken during an Extra Magic Hours evening) for you to enjoy. And good luck to all of our readers who are running in the Walt Disney World Marathon and Half Marathon this coming weekend!

Did you go to MouseFest 2005?

If you were at MouseFest this year, thanks so much for joining us! But now we're already starting to plan MouseFest 2006, and we've got a survey (link) to help us figure out what to do for 2006 and beyond. The planning team is looking for your input. Thanks for your help!

(And don't forget to join us for MouseFest 2006, scheduled for December 3-11, 2006. The MouseFest Cruise will sail December 3-7, while the land portion runs December 7 - 11.)

Walt Disney World raises ticket prices to match SeaWorld; Universal expected to follow suit

As expected, Walt Disney World increased its ticket prices effective New Year's Day, following the earlier announcement of a January 2 price hike by SeaWorld Orlando. Universal Orlando, the last of the big three, has not yet announced its annual price hike, but is expected to do so shortly.

Perhaps emboldened by the recent release of figures showing it as again the most-visited theme park resort in the world, Disney raised its one-day rates from $59.75 to $63, surpassing SeaWorld's increase to $61.75 and making it the top ticket price in the area. As before, ticket prices for multi-day tickets get cheaper on a per-day basis, with the increase slowing so quickly that the cost of a 10-day ticket is only $15 more than the cost of a 4-day ticket. In fact, while the per-ticket increase tops out as a $10 rise in the 3-day and per-day ticket prices (from $171 to $181 and from $185 to $195, respectively), the drop in ensuing days leaves the cost of a 10-day ticket at just $1 more than it cost previously.

Add-on prices have gone up, as well. The cost to add the Park Hopper option has gone up from $35 to $40, while the Water Park Fun & More (while adding one visit at each level), has gone up from $45 to $50. The No Expiration option has increased as well, with the 10-day add-on going from $110 to $135. (The No Expiration only remains the same for two- and three-day tickets, at $10, with other daily prices increasing by $5 to $35.)

Advance purchase savings have undergone a change, as well. Previously, the discounts were for all tickets above the base ticket, starting at a 5-day ticket, and all tickets of the same length had the same discount. The savings now start with a 4-day ticket, and the savings are tiered. The discount on tickets with only one of the Park Hopper or Water Park Fun & More options ranges from $2 (adult and child) on 4-day passes up to $8 (adult) and $4 (child) on 7- through 10-day passes. However, for those purchasing both options, the discounts range from $12 (adult) and $10 (child) for 4-day passes to $18 (adult) and $12 (child) for 7- through 10-day passes.

Annual Passport prices have also gone up. Annual Passes have gone up from $395 (adult) and $336 (child) to $415 and $365. Premium APs have gone up from $515 and $438 to $539 and $475. Disney Vacation Club discounts on Annual Pass prices still apply to the higher rates.

Florida resident pass prices have risen, as well, with Annual Passes going from $315/$268 (adult/child) to $325/$285. Premium APs go from $415.$353 to $429/$379 and Seasonal Passes go from $209/$178 to $215/$189.

Our ticket price chart below (link) has been updated to reflect the changes.

Annual Passholder Everest preview now official; same dates as DVC member preview

It took an extra couple of weeks to announce, but the Annual Passholders will be joining the previously confirmed Disney Vacation Club members in getting a special sneak preview of Expedition: Everest on January 26-29. Unlike DVC members, however, passholders will not be allowed to bring any guests with them. All attendees will get a special pin and lanyard for riding. We're looking at scheduling a meet for MousePlanet readers some time during that weekend (link), so if you're interested, sign on to our MousePad discussion forums and let us know!

Disney Dining Plan to be available to Disney Vacation Club members

Disney Vacation Club members have been asking for some time whether the dining plan would be made available to them, since it had only been available to those purchasing all-inclusive packages and DVC members by definition could not get a package. For those reservations booked on or after April 1, 2006, members can book the Disney Dining Plan. However, the dining plan must be booked in advance of arrival and must be purchased for the entire travel party (ages 3 and over) for the entire length of stay. The plan may be purchased through Member Services, either when making your reservation or any time between then and your arrival date.

The end for "The Boo"?

The building once known as the Big Bamboo Lounge, a favorite hangout for Disney Imagineers and cast members during the early years of Walt Disney World, was nearly destroyed in a fire on December 18. The building, which was also damaged by hurricanes during 2004, and had been abandoned for a number of years. It was reported that the fire was started by homeless people trying to keep warm in the vacant building. The former owner of the bar, Bruce Muir, died in February 1999, and his heirs have been squabbling over the property ever since, with Muir's daughters wanting to reopen the bar and his widow not even responding to messages from the daughters or the press. With the damage from the latest fire, this may spell the end for the establishment that was once decorated by cast member name tags, business cards, drawings and other memorabilia.

New name for the Radisson now in place

The Radisson Resort Parkway has now officially changed its name to the Radisson Resort Orlando-Celebration. The resort is a MousePlanet sponsor. For rates, see below (link).

…There will be 50 tickets per day for the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire tapings on January 12, 13 and 15 at the Disney-MGM Studios reserved specifically for Disney Vacation Club members. DVC members can pick up tickets at the DVC booth at the Studios on the day of the shows. There is a limit of four tickets per DVC member. You must show a valid membership card to get your tickets.
