Disney World ticket price increase

Posted: Updated:

The magic at the Magic Kingdom could cost you a little more.  Just in time for spring break, Walt Disney World is getting more expensive.  Single-day tickets to Disney's Magic Kingdom have gone up $4.00.  Now, it will cost anyone over the age of nine, $99.  Tickets for children ages three-to-nine are $93 a day.  The Magic Kingdom is the most expensive theme park at Walt Disney World Resort.

Single-day tickets for the resort's other parks - Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom - also went up by $4.  It will now cost you $88 to enter the other parks.  Multi-day passes can cut down the daily cost.

Walt Disney spokeswoman Kim Prunty says the pricing reflects the high quality of the parks. She also says most guests buy multi-day tickets, which are considerably cheaper per day.
 
The Florida parks are home to the company's new high-tech wristband-based ticketing and ride reservation system, called MyMagic+.  Disney spokesman Bryan Malenius says the ambitious project had cost at least $1.5 billion.
