Price increase at Disney World, Disneyland

Disney, which has a three-tier structure that charges visitors more during peak periods to help spread out crowds, said peak one-day tickets for a single theme park at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, would see the biggest increase, rising to US$135 from US$124.

The Disneyland resort raised prices over the weekend, several months before the park plans to unveil a remake of its boardwalk-themed area at the California Adventure Park.

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. The "peak" prices will be $129 for adults and $123 for children.

At Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom, one-day "value" tickets will go up by $2, which will now cost $102 for adults and $96 for children. "Regular" times for adults will be $114 for adults and $108 for children, and "peak" tickets jump to $122 and $116, respectively for adults and children. And this is just the warm-up for some fundamental changes to Disney's ticketing programs yet to come later this year.

As for annual passes, the least-expensive pass costs 729 USA dollars, up from 619 US dollars.

Disneyland is holding the value-season price for a one-day, one-park ticket steady at $97 and is actually dropping the price of a one-day Park Hopper on value-season days by $10, from $157 to $147. Each month was divided into value, regular and peak days with an 8-11 month calendar available online, hoping to prevent overcrowding during the theme parks' busiest times.

Disney has a number of different ticket options at their parks, including annual passes, two-to-five day passes and state-specific passes that benefit state residents in California and Florida.
