Prices rise at Disney parks in Florida, California


Disney ticket prices aren't the only thing going up - the number of people visiting the theme parks is also on the rise. Well, now it has happened.

All of the changes are reflected on the parks' websites. 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.

A one-day, one-park adult ticket remains 97 US dollars for low-demand days, such as weekdays in May, while a ticket for regular demand days is 117 USA dollars, up from 110 US dollars. A one-day ticket for Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom increased $7, costing $114, according to the Sentinel. On regular and peak days, Disney is raising the price of Park Hoppers by less than it is one-day, one-park tickets, suggesting that Disney would really rather you hop over to California Adventure for part of your day at Disneyland than crowding just the one park all day.

One-day prices to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida rose 2 percent to 4 percent, with tickets there now ranging between $109 and $129.

Prices for tickets and annual passes have once again increased, effective Sunday. The program is created to entice guests to visit the parks in the United States during less busy times of the year.

Disney began its flexible pricing program in October 2015.

Disney also says it will extend its pre-published, date-specific pricing to multi-day tickets at Walt Disney World.

"We know how important making memories at Disney theme parks is for our guests", said Kim Prunty, a spokeswoman for the Burbank, California-based entertainment company.

Details on the fixed-date tickets created to control attendance will be released in advance of next year's opening of Star Wars Lands.
