Walt Disney Co said on Sunday it was changing the admission price for its US theme parks, raising the cost of some single-day tickets by nearly 9 percent. All of the increases are reflected on the parks' websites. A value ticket costs $109, a $2 increase from 2017. That's a $4 increase over past year.
"Value" one-day tickets at Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and the Animal Kingdom will cost $102 for an adult and $96 for a child.
"Peak" prices will be set at $129 for an adult and $123 for a child.
A one-day adult ticket for Disneyland or California Adventure is $99 for the low-demand days, such as weekdays in May.
Disney also raised prices for annual passes.
At the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, annual pass prices are going up by just under five to just over nine percent.
"Given the small percentage of guests that purchase a 1-day ticket at Walt Disney World, extending pre-published, date-specific pricing to multi-day tickets will further advance our efforts spread to attendance throughout the year", said Andrea Finger, spokeswoman for Walt Disney World.
Southern California residents still have rights to buy a "select passport" for 369 USA dollars but that pass blocks out all weekends and nearly the entire summer and Christmas season.
Disneyland ticket prices are seeing the biggest increases. Standard parking will now cost $22 per day, while preferred parking will cost $45 per day.
The new prices still reflect the amusement parks' ticketing policies that reflect popular visiting hours, with value-priced tickets, regular tickets and peak-priced tickets.
However, Sunday's move was widely expected as the park prepares for the 2019 opening of its much-anticipated "Star Wars" land.
