“I made my reservations already for a 2019 trip. Will the recent announcements of price increases for tickets and now food change my trip cost? I have reserved my room, tickets, dining plan etc already.”

You are locked in. Once you have a reservation and have made your deposit your price is locked in.

Yes, the upcoming date based ticket pricing is scary and the price increase is real and considerable, it won’t affect your reservation.

I know you already have your reservation made, but I’d still suggest you get in touch with our partners at Destinations to Travel and transfer your reservation over to them.

Dad’s Destinations to Travel Page

They’ll be able to help if a discount comes out in the future that will save you money. They will work with you on dining reservations (ADR’s), FastPass+, itinerary planning and be your new best Disney friend.

Trust me, it helps. I use them myself.

Destinations to Travel

Dad’s Bottom Line

Brandon, the bottom line is you’re all good to go and your price is locked in. But do give Destinations to Travel a try.

Do you know if the price of annual passes will go up on October 16th?

Dad Answers

Disney hasn’t said anything about Annual Passes, but I think they will be going up sometime soon.
