It Now Costs More to go to Disney World and Disneyland

Save on Disneyland Resort tickets after the price change

Save on Disneyland Resort tickets after the price change

At the gate, one-day Magic Kingdom ticket is now $119 (was $115.) A value time ticket will now be $109 (up from $107) and a Peak time ticket is now $129 (was $124.) So not too bad. The cost of a "value" ticket will remain the same at $97.

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

As usual, February means a ticket price increase for Walt Disney World. The hike comes after Disney reported increased attendance at its theme parks in its first-quarter.

Now, "value" day tickets for the Magic Kingdom will increase $2, raising the price to $109 for adults and $103 for kids, beginning Sunday, according the Associated Press. That's a $4 increase over previous year.

A one-day adult ticket for Disneyland or California Adventure is $99 for the low-demand days, such as weekdays in May. "Regular" time will be $114 for adults and $108 for kids, while "peak" time tops out at $122 for adults and $116 for kids. The Gold pass, which has two block out periods costs $589, a $30 increase.

The prices rose the highest for annual pass holders, up as much as 18%.

Prices for Florida residents have also changed, as reflected on the park's website. Each month was divided in value, with regular and peak days during an 8 to 11 month calendar made available online, hoping to prevent overcrowding during the busy season.

Disney also plans to sell multi-day tickets with date-specific pricing later this year.

Disney has several projects in the works including Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, set to open in 2019, a Guardians of the Galaxy coaster at Epcot and a Tron coaster at Magic Kingdom.

Company officials said Sunday that this program will evolve in 2018 to address the visitation patterns of their guests.
