Ticket prices increase at Disney parks in Florida, California

Share

During peak times, expect to pay $129 for a single-day ticket.

At Magic Kingdom, a single-day regular ticket now costs $119 for adults.

Buoyed by new attractions like Pandora-The World of Avatar, the theme parks and resorts accounted for a third of Disney's $55.1 billion in 2017 revenue, with domestic attendance hitting a record high.

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

At Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, "value" one-day tickets will now be $102 for adults and $96 for children, which is a $2 bump for both. "Regular" times at these parks will cost $114 for an adult and $108 for a child.

Annual passes are also increasing in price. The value ticket will still cost $97. For non-Florida residents, a platinum pass went from $779 to $849.

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.

Southern California residents still have rights to buy a "select passport" for 369 USA dollars but that pass blocks out all weekends and nearly the entire summer and Christmas season.

Disney also plans to sell multi-day tickets with date-specific pricing later this year. Standard parking will now cost $22 per day, while preferred parking will cost $45 per day.

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 changes are reflected on the parks' websites.

"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", Disneyland Resorts spokesperson Suzi Brown said in a statement.
