For the second time in less than a year, Walt Disney World has raised ticket prices. When word starting getting out on Saturday, February 22, that a price increase was coming, the only information released was regarding one-day tickets, so guests were assuming this was the only ticket option to be increased. Normally we have a few days notice of an increase, which normally happen in the summer, so it is interesting that this came seemingly out of nowhere. The next day, guests were surprised to learn that all of Disney's ticket prices went up. A one-day ticket to the Magic Kingdom is now $99, up from $95. A one-day ticket to any of the other parks went up $4 to $94.

For tickets with a higher number of days, the increases were on average about $15 per ticket. To add the park hopper and water park options, guests will pay about $1-$2 more than last year. Annual pass prices increased $25.

Disney spokesman Bryan Malenius said, "Our pricing reflects the high quality and breadth of experiences we offer and our ongoing commitment to investing in our parks. We offer a variety of ticket options that provide a great value, and find that most guests select multi-day tickets that offer additional savings."

Ticket prices were last increased in June 2013.
