Disney ticket prices on rise in Orlando


A single-day ticket during peak times will cost $135, which is an $11 increase over a year ago. Well, now it has happened. The "value" ticket will cost $97, no change.

The price increase at Walt Disney World in Orlando and Disneyland in California started on Sunday.

Prices for Florida residents have also changed.

Disney tickets broke the $100 mark three years ago, when single-day Magic Kingdom prices were upped $4, from $99 to $105. New admission prices to the theme park - a popular destination during Mardi Gras for many in the New Orleans area - are effective Sunday (Feb. 11).

"Value" one-day tickets at Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and the Animal Kingdom will cost $102 for an adult and $96 for a child. At Disneyland, regular, one-day, one-park tickets will be $117; a $7 increase. The prices for Signature and Deluxe annual passes are going up by more than 17 percent, as is the renewal price for a SoCal annual pass, which is no longer available for sale to new customers. The premium Platinum pass now costs Floridians $729, up from $679. Parking is up $2 a day now to $22 and up $5 for preferred to $45. The program is created to entice guests to visit the parks in the United States during less busy times of the year.

The tiered pricing by peak and value will continue this year.

Disney has also announced they will sell "date-specific multi-date tickets" sometime soon.

"We will be reshaping our Annual Pass program to better manage the guest experience throughout the year, which will help all Disneyland Resort guests have a great visit, particularly as we look forward to the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in 2019", a Disneyland spokesperson said.
