Walt Disney World tickets see price increase in US

If a Disney theme park is on this year’s travel list, you just may have to save a little longer. The Walt Disney Company is set to raise theme park entrance prices in the US.

The new price hikes include Walt Disney World, California Adventure and Disneyland. The new prices are already in effect.

Spending a day with Mickey and Minnie will now set you back a few extra dollars. New entry fees for Disneyland or California Adventure park have been increased from $96 to $99 for guests ages 10 and older.

Single-day tickets for Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom in Florida are up from $99 to $105 per adult person.

For the last quarter of 2014, Disney reported an attendance increase of 7 percent, resulting in 9 percent revenue growth totaling $3.9 billion.

The Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World set all-time attendance records last year.

Other Disney price changes include Epcot Center, Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, which have all been increased from $94 to $97.

Entrance tickets for children aged 3 to 9 have gone up as well from $90 to $93 for a single-day pass at Disneyland. For Magic Kingdom, tiny Mickey fans are now being charged $99, up from $93. Other theme parks have gone up from $88 to $91.

Suzi Brown, a Disneyland Resort spokeswoman, says that Disney generally raises US ticket prices each year and explains, “We continually add new experiences, and many of our guests select multiday tickets or annual passes, which provide a great value and additional savings.”
