Disneyland and Disney World are experiencing a price hike just in time for the summer season.
If you had already worked out the cost of a Disney-oriented vacation, then you’ll may need to bring a little extra cash. It’s now going to run families more to visit the happiest place on earth.
Those folks visiting Disney World in Orlando, Florida will see the price of a one-day adult pass jump by around $6. Getting inside will now run you $95 per person. Children under the age of ten won’t have to pay nearly as much; their ticket will cost $89.
Although Disneyland didn’t go up as much as its Florida-based counterpart, you’ll still see a price hike this summer. A one-day pass at the Anaheim park will cost vacationers $92 for adults and $86 for children. Large families will easily drop hundreds of dollars before they even start looking at food, hotel, trinkets, and parking.
Reports indicate that those who prefer to buy the annual passes will also be affected by the increase in rates. Depending on which pass you decide to pursue, Disney fans can expect to drop upwards of $20 per ticket.
Why are the Disney theme parks experiencing a price hike this summer? According to the company, a “number of factors” are forcing families to part with more money.
“A ticket to our theme parks represents a great value, particularly when you look at the breadth and quality of attractions and entertainment we offer and the special moments guests experience with our cast,” spokesman Bryan Malenius recently explained.
In short, Disney wants you pay a few extra dollars per day to hang out with them because they feel the experience is worth more this year than last. Since there’s nothing quite like a Disney theme park, chances are the increase isn’t going to stop too many people from dropping in.
