It has gone up every year, around this time of the year, for the past five years.
The government does not include these kinds of price increases in the CPI published so it does not affect inflation stats.
On my little soapbox here, therre is plenty of inflation. We don't just eat bread and milk. There is more to life than that but because the CPI excludes things like amusement park admission, gas, cars and movies, the government can still claim that is inflation is low.
What if I have a current AP and want yo renew? Mine doesn't expire until Oct. Can I pay for another year now or get a voucher or something and then wait to use it until after my current one expires?
I'm eligible to buy passes at a military base. Last year, we heard about the price increase on a Friday (and the increase was going into affect on Sunday).
We went on base and bought new annual pass vouchers, even though our APs weren't expiring for another couple of months (October).
There was no problem with DL honoring our vouchers, even though we had paid less than the current price of the APs when we renewed.
The vouchers had to be used by 12/31.
It's a good thing I upgraded my Disney Visa to the 2% and my Chase Master Card to the 1% cash back with other online purchases up to 10%. I am very frugal, it is the only way we can afford to purchase tickets to the parks. As it stands, my husband has a little over $600.00 in Disney Visa Points. Wish the Disney company would quit raising the prices. Oh well, I will just have to purchase more groceries at the 2%.
This is the rumor I heard from a pretty good source. Prices are going up in april or may. Premium is going up 50.00 to 699.00. Delux is going up 30.00 to 499.00. So cal is going up 60.00 to 389.00. So cal select is going up 30.00 to 299.00. One day one park will be 91.00. And one day park hopper will be 135.00. I hope that helps.

If true, that's a hefty price increase across the board. The $10 increase on a single day parkhopper is nuts!
Yeah, time for a break from Disney for a year or two...
The AP at Legoland is much cheaper (obviously). I accept that the DL AP is our "family vacation" every year (spread out over the entire year - it's certainly the cost of one!). But maybe a year or two away will help us appreciate it again.
If those prices are true I'd be fine with that! They aren't nearly as hefty as last year!
I agree I gine with the price increases however I'm happ I already renewed my pass for this year
