Walt Disney World, Disneyland ticket prices increase

In October 2015 Disney introduced flexible pricing at U.S. parks as an incentive for guests to visit during less busy times. Company officials said Sunday that this program will evolve in 2018 to address the visitation patterns of their guests

Price increases that took effect Sunday varied by resort location, the number of days purchased, state residency and other factors. Disney World operates under a tiered pricing system, meaning the cost of tickets will depend on when you visit. That's a $4 increase.

Starting Sunday, "value" days for Magic Kingdom will cost $109 for adults and $103 for children, which represent a $2 increase. Peak season tickets increased by $5, up to $129 for adults and $123 for children.

The cost to visit Mickey Mouse and his pals at Disney World in Orlando is increasing, according to the Orlando Sentinel newspaper.

A one-day adult ticket for Disneyland or California Adventure is $99 for the low-demand days, such as weekdays in May. And this is just the warm-up for some fundamental changes to Disney's ticketing programs yet to come later this year.

Disney also says it will extend its pre-published, date-specific pricing to multi-day tickets at Walt Disney World.

Prices for Florida residents have also changed. The Gold pass, which has two block out periods costs $589, a $30 increase.

Southern California residents still have rights to buy a "select passport" for 369 US dollars but that pass blocks out all weekends and nearly the entire summer and Christmas season.

Annual pass prices at California's Disneyland are going up by as much as almost 18 percent, as Disney looks to better balance its crowd levels throughout the year.

Disneyland ticket prices are seeing the biggest increases. Managers of the company have been struggling for years to balance their desire to keep the parks full against the reality that they are crowded on a daily basis.

The price increases comes months ahead of the opening of Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios this summer.

Details on the fixed-date tickets created to control attendance will be released in advance of next year's opening of Star Wars Lands.
