Let’s face it — Disney World is expensive.
People can easily spend thousands and thousands of dollars on family vacation between just the hotels, tickets, and food alone. That’s not even taking into account things like airfare or stuff you might have to buy for your trip! So, we’re always on the lookout for ways that you can save money when you’re in the parks. One of the ways to do this is by being aware of ticket prices! They vary from day to day, so you can save a lot by picking dates that cost less than others. We’re going to break down the CHEAPEST days to visit Disney World in 2023!
We’re going to be looking at the prices of a one-day, single park ticket with no add-ons. So, if you want a Park Hopper or a Water Parks and Sports Option ticket, those will cost more than the ones we’re showing you now. Also note that if you buy a ticket for multiple days, the price per-day will decrease compared to a single-day ticket price. Okay, now let’s break it down month by month!
January is usually a less in-demand month to visit Disney World, so the prices are a bit lower, and they’re way lower than they are in December! The cheapest days to visit all month are from January 9th-12th when they’re $124 per day.
January is usually a great time to visit the parks because the weather is cooler and there are less crowds!
February prices go up a little bit compared to January. We usually think of February as a slow month in Disney World, but this past year, in 2022, we saw BIG crowds in the parks for some reason. That doesn’t mean the same thing will happen in 2023, but it’s definitely something to be aware of!
The least expensive days to visit in February are on the 1st, 7th, & 8th when tickets are $134 per day.
March is typically a very busy time in Disney World due to spring break. College spring breaks start in March, as do some other schools around the country, so a lot of people head to Disney World for vacation!
The cheapest days to visit in March come at the end of the month on March 27th, 29th, and 30th. Tickets on these days are $144 per day.
Spring Break continues throughout April for the most part, which means the crowd levels are about the same as they are in March. We see long lines and a lot of people around the parks during this month. Some schools also have some time off for Easter.
The cheapest days to visit in April are from the 2nd through the 4th, when tickets are $139 per day.
May is usually less busy than April because there is a sort of lull between spring and summer breaks. But, that doesn’t mean it’s slow in the parks by any means! We do typically still see some higher wait times.
The cheapest days in May are the same price as they were in April — $139 per day. You can get this price on April 1st & 2nd, as well as April 8th-10th.
Summer officially arrives in June and there are quite a few dates that qualify as the cheapest for the month! Remember, the weather will be hot and the parks will likely be busy during this month.
The cheapest days to visit in June are on the 5th, 12th-15th, 19th-22nd, and 26th-28th. Tickets are $134 per day.
July is pretty much the same deal as June, but there are less days at the same lower price. The cheapest days to visit are from July 24th-28th at $134 per day.
July usually sees the start of things like the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, which can bring in some pretty big crowds.
August is when things typically start to really slow down in Disney World. Summer vacation comes to an end and a lot of kids head back to school. This makes for some days with very light crowds in the parks!
The cheapest days to visit in August come at the end of the month — it’s only $109 per day from August 22nd-25th and 29th-31st.
September is pretty slow as well, although we can sometimes see things pick up for the Halloween festivities in the parks. But, this month is MUCH cheaper compared to the remainder of the year!
The cheapest days to visit in September are from the 5th-7th, 12th-14th, 18th-21st, and 26th-28th. Tickets are only $109 per day.
October sees things pick up again with people visiting during fall breaks or just trying to get in on all of the Halloween celebrations. The parks usually cool down a bit too, which definitely make them more appealing!
The least expensive days to visit in October are from the 10th-12th, 16th-19th, and 23rd-26th. Tickets cost $140 per day.
November is busy as well, with the holiday celebrations starting basically right after Halloween is over. A lot of people will visit for things like Thanksgiving and EPCOT’s Festival of the Holidays, so you’re better off going toward the beginning half of the month if you want to avoid the heaviest crowds.
The cheapest days to visit in November are the 1st, 2nd, 6th-8th, and 14th-16th. Tickets are $140 per day.
December is probably the most expensive month overall to visit Disney World, with the least amount of variations in price. The cheapest days to visit the parks are on December 7th, 8th, 12th-15th, and 18th-20th. On all of these days, the ticket price is $149.
December’s prices are high because of the holidays! A lot of people want to visit the parks to see all of the holiday decor, eat all of the food, and check out special events like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
So, as you can see, August and September seem to be the cheapest months overall if you want to visit Disney World in 2023. They’re the only months with that $109 ticket price!
