Disney tickets for $50? Disneyland, Disney World slash prices, but there are terms

A trip to Walt Disney World or Disneyland could cost some families less next year. Both resorts are offering separate limited-time deals for children.

Parents and guardians should note that only kids between the ages of 3 and 9 qualify for child pricing on Disney park tickets. Kids ages 10 and up count as adults, and children under the age of 3 may enter parks for free.

Here are the details:

Disneyland, which recently increased prices on multi-day tickets, is now offering tickets for “as low as $50 per child, per day” between Jan. 8 through March 10, according to the California resort. That’s nearly half off the $98 starting price of a one-day, one-park child’s ticket. The starting price of one-day tickets did not increase like other ticket prices.

There are no blockout dates for this deal, but tickets are pending park reservation availability.

The specially priced children's tickets went on sale Oct. 24. They are available for one, two or three-day tickets, which is significant because Disney usually only offers discounts on multi-day tickets. Add-on perks like Park Hopper and Genie+ will cost extra.

Disney World is offering half off theme park tickets and dining plans for children when families purchase a non-discounted, four-night, four-day resort stay directly through Disney. The deal will be valid “most nights from March 3 through June 30,” according to the Florida resort.

Exact dates will be available when booking opens next month on Nov. 14.

The Disney Dining Plan is a prepaid meal plan available to guests staying at Disney World resorts. It’s been on hiatus since the pandemic and officially returns on Jan. 9, the same day park reservation requirements lift at Disney World.
