Two weeks after Universal Orlando Resort became the first Orlando theme park to break the $90 threshold for a single-day, single-park ticket, Walt Disney World Resort has announced adult admission to the Magic Kingdom will increase $6, to $95 ($89 ages 3-9), effective Sunday.
Single-day admission to its other Florida parks, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, is slightly lower at $90, adult and $84, ages 3-9.
This marks the first year in what has become an annual rite, that Disney has introduced two different rates for single-day admissions to its Orlando parks.
At Disneyland, cost of a one-day one-park adult ticket will increase from from $87 to $92 and a one-day park hopper ticket goes from $125 to $137. Disney has also suspended discounts formerly given to Southern California residents.
Multi-day admission tickets, which are more popular -- and more economical -- have also increased. Overall, price hikes range from 1% to 15%.
