Disney Ticket Price Increase Makes Busch Gardens an Even Bigger Bargain!

So Disney is raising prices again, specifically increasing prices around peak days near Christmas and other holidays. Single day single park tickets will now be up to $159/day and $219/day for “hopper” tickets allowing for admission to multiple parks in one day. Articles point to new investments in the parks (Galaxy’s Edge) and Disney’s desire to manage attendance during peak seasons as reasons.

Let’s compare and contrast a bit here. The $184 for a peak Disney single park day ($159 ticket + $25 parking) could instead get you a $180 Busch Gardens Silver Season pass (no blackouts) with free parking and a ticket to give to a friend. The $244 for a peak Disney park “hopper” day ($219 ticket + $25 parking) puts you just $44 short of a $288 Platinum pass for 1 year at 10 additional nationwide parks (SeaWorld, Sesame Place, Adventure Island, etc.) with free parking, 2 friend tickets, an annual PhotoKey and an animal encounter! All this and we haven’t even talked about 2 free beers per day for the rest of 2019!

Compared to the competition an hour down the road, Busch Gardens just became an even bigger bargain! Basically for the price of a day you can get a year of fun!

Where will ticket price inflation stop?
