Disney raising theme park ticket prices

From the Associated Press

As if rising gas and food prices weren’t enough, a ticket to the Magic Kingdom will soon cost a few bucks more.

Walt Disney Co. said Friday that it would raise one-day ticket prices at its domestic parks starting Sunday.

One-day tickets for those 10 and older to Disneyland in Anaheim will rise from $66 to $69; for children ages 3 to 9, the price will increase from $56 to $59.

At Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., one-day prices will rise from $71 to $75, while tickets for children ages 3 to 9 will go from $60 to $63.

The price increase applies in varying degrees for longer stays, and the park hopper option, an add-on that allows ticket holders to move among any of Disney’s parks, will cost $50, up from $45.
