Disney World and Disneyland Are Raising Prices Once Again

Prices for tickets and annual passes have once again increased, effective Sunday.

Starting Sunday, "value" days for Magic Kingdom will cost $109 for adults and $103 for children, which represent a $2 increase. That's a $4 increase.

Disney tickets broke the $100 mark three years ago, when single-day Magic Kingdom prices were upped $4, from $99 to $105. The cost of a "value" ticket will remain the same at $97.

Walt Disney Co. raised admission prices to its theme parks and said it plans to introduce fixed-date ticketing in coming months to help reduce crowding at peak times. Former Signature pass costs 849 USA dollars, which includes free parking, goes up to 999 US dollars while the most expensive Signature Plus pass, with free parking and an online app to board rides faster, is now 1,149 USA dollars, up from 1,049 US dollars.

Ticket prices are going up at Walt Disney World and Disneyland, but the increase shouldn't come as a surprise. A single-day regular ticket now cost $114, a $7 increase from previous year. During peak times, expect to pay $129 for a single-day ticket.

Cathey also appeared in the 2015 " Fantastic Four " reboot and most recently starred in films " Flock of Four ", and " Tyrel ". Cathey by name, his recent roles and commanding voice made him instantly recognizable in the latter part of his career.

"Given the small percentage of guests that purchase a 1-day ticket at Walt Disney World, extending pre-published, date-specific pricing to multi-day tickets will further advance our efforts spread to attendance throughout the year", said Andrea Finger, spokeswoman for Walt Disney World. The Gold pass, which has two block out periods costs $589, a $30 increase.

Annual pass prices at California's Disneyland are going up by as much as almost 18 percent, as Disney looks to better balance its crowd levels throughout the year.

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.

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.
