Price increase at Disney World, Disneyland

Irene MckinneyFeb 12, 2018

The price increase at Walt Disney World in Orlando and Disneyland in California started on Sunday. A one-day ticket for Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom increased $7, costing $114, according to the Sentinel.

Price increases that took effect Sunday varied by resort location, the number of days purchased, state residency and other factors.

"Peak" prices will be set at $129 for an adult and $123 for a child.

Both of the iconic theme parks have increased their ticket prices every year since the 1970s.

Walt Disney Co DIS.N said on Sunday it was changing the admission price for its US theme parks, raising the cost of some single-day tickets by nearly 9 percent. The new prices still reflect the amusement parks' ticketing policies that reflect popular visiting hours, with value-priced tickets, regular tickets and peak-priced tickets. Disney World operates under a tiered pricing system, meaning the cost of tickets will depend on when you visit. "Peak" tickets at these parks will run $122 for an adult and $116 for a child.

The Florida-resident Platinum pass, with has no block out dates, now costs $729, up from $679.

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.

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

The price for parking is also increasing. Managers of the company have been struggling for years to balance their desire to keep the parks full against the reality that they are crowded on a daily basis.

At Disneyland, the resort will change its annual pass structure yet again later this year, as it attempts to guard against human gridlock in Disneyland when the new Star Wars land opens in 2019. All of the increases are reflected on the parks' websites.
