Disney ticket prices in Orlando are on the rise

Disney ticket prices in Orlando are on the rise

At Disney World, prices for "value" days increased to $109 for adults and $103 for children - a $2 uptick - and prices for tickets during regular days increased to $119 for adults and $113 for children - a $4 increase, according to the Associated Press. The cost of a "value" ticket will remain the same at $97.

Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and Disneyland in Anaheim, California, are raising ticket prices by several dollars starting Sunday. Your Disney World theme park admission tickets will be tied to the dates you plan to use them, just like hotel reservations and airfares.

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. That's a $4 increase over past year. 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.

Prices for Florida residents and Annual passes have changed as well.

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. The "peak" prices will be $129 for adults and $123 for children. "Peak" tickets will cost $122 for adults and $116 for children.

"Attendance at our domestic parks was up 6% in the quarter", said Christine M. McCarthy, chief financial officer of The Walt Disney Co. on the company's Q1 earnings call Feb.6, noting that "operating income was up 18%" over the prior year for its USA operations. Standard parking will now cost $22 per day, while preferred parking will cost $45 per day. All of the increases are reflected on the parks' websites.

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