Disneyland, Disney World raising prices — here’s what you’ll pay
Walt Disney World and Disneyland experienced a price hike over the weekend.
Ticket prices for adults and children to visit the Magic Kingdom at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland rose $4 to $119 and $113, respectively.
But that’s not all. Ticket prices during peak visitation times will rise to $129 for adults and $123 for children, according to The Orlando Sentinel.
Meanwhile, prices on days with little visitation will cost $109 for adults and $103 for children.
Parking prices also jumped to $22. Preferred parking climbed to $45, the Sentinel reported.
Ticket prices to Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom will also see a jump.
That means a family of four visiting the park on an expensive day will have to pay roughly $520 for one day at the park.
“We know how important making memories at Disney theme parks is to families and we will continue to evolve our pricing in a way that gives families a range of options to meet their budget and helps better spread attendance throughout the year so they can make the most of every visit,” Disney spokeswoman Andrea Finger said in a statement to the Sentinel.
Disneyland’s annual pass prices will also increase, according to USA Today. The Signature Plus annual passport jumped $100 to $1,149. The cheapest pass climbed to $369, a $30 increase.
“We will be reshaping our Annual Pass program to better manage the guest experience throughout the year, which will help all Disneyland Resort guests have a great visit, particularly as we look forward to the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in 2019,” said spokeswoman Suzi Brown in a statement to USA Today.
Along with the increased prices, Disney announced two major additions to the Walt Disney World Resort at the D23 Expo in Japan this week.
The parks will soon add a “Toy Story” Land, where guests will walk around large-scale toy models of Buzz Lightyear and Woody, making visitors feel as though they are the size of the toys, according to ComingSoon.net.
Disney also announced the “Star Wars: Galaxy Edge” Park, which is an immersive “Star Wars” experience where people can interact with characters in themed environments.
There will even be a “Star Wars”-themed hotel.
