Disney Raising its Theme Park Prices on Thursday

The price of going to a Disney theme park is going up on Thursday, to more than $80 for an adult ticket at Walt Disney World Resort.

Disney announced the increases at both Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California on its blog.

The cost of a one-day adult ticket at Walt Disney World is up $3 to $82, the first time it's topped $80. The price for kids under age 10 is up $6 to $74.

So a family of four with young kids buying a day pass will pay $18 more. A Park Hopper add-on to visit multiple parks at Walt Disney World is up $2 to $54.

At Disneyland, the base one-day adult price rises to $76, up $4. Children's tickets go up $6 to $68. An adult Park Hopper pass (for both Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure) goes up to $101, topping $100 for the first time. A children's Park Hopper pass is up $4 to $91.

Other increases at Disneyland include the price of parking – up a dollar to $15 per day.

"While the prices do reflect an increase, you can still find special values for California and Florida residents or through multi-day passes or seasonal and annual passes," the blog says.

Tickets bought through Wednesday at the old price will be honored for the time period designated at the time of purchase, a Disney World spokesman says.

Disney also announced increases in park fees in August last year.
