Disney increasing prices at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Disneyland in California

Disney ticket prices on rise in Orlando: report

It Now Costs More to go to Disney World and Disneyland

At Disneyland, "regular", one-day, one-park tickets will be $117, a $7 increase.

One-day prices to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida rose 2 per cent to 4 per cent, with tickets there now ranging between US$109 and US$129. On regular and peak days, Disney is raising the price of Park Hoppers by less than it is one-day, one-park tickets, suggesting that Disney would really rather you hop over to California Adventure for part of your day at Disneyland than crowding just the one park all day. The "peak" prices will be $129 for adults and $123 for children.

A "value" one day ticket for Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios comes to $102 for adults and $96 for children, which is a 2 dollar rise.

Value and regular one-day tickets are now US$97 and US$117, respectively, compared to US$97 and US$110 a year ago. A single-day ticket during peak periods will climb to $135, an $11 increase.

We have been telling you for a couple of weeks now - if it's February, it must be time for Disney's annual ticket price increases. All of the increases are reflected on the parks' websites.

"We know how important making memories at Disney theme parks is for our guests", said Kim Prunty, a spokeswoman for the Burbank, California-based entertainment company.

That means that at some point in 2018, multi-day tickets to Walt Disney World's theme parks will become date-specific.
