ORLANDO, Fla. (AP/WFLA) – Ticket prices at Walt Disney World in Orlando and Disneyland in California are increasing.

According to Disney, the prices will take effect Sunday.

One-day regular park tickets at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom will go up by $4, to $119. At Disneyland, regular, one-day, one-park tickets will be $117; a $7 increase.

Annual passes are also increasing in price. For non-Florida residents, a platinum pass went from $779 to $849.

Disney also says it will extend its pre-published, date-specific pricing to multi-day tickets at Walt Disney World. At Disneyland, where the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attraction will open in 2019, the company will retool its Annual Pass program.

All of the changes are reflected on the parks’ websites.

News Channel 8 reached out to Walt Disney World for comment and received this information from a spokeswoman:

We know how important making memories at Disney theme parks is to families and we will continue to evolve our pricing in a way that gives families a range of options to meet their budget and helps better spread attendance throughout the year so they can make the most of every visit.”

LOOKING AHEAD: As we previously shared in 2016, given the small percentage of guests that purchase a 1-day ticket at Walt Disney World, we will be extending pre-published, date-specific pricing to multi-day tickets later this year. This will further advance our efforts to spread attendance throughout the year and ensure all guests have a magical experience no matter when they visit.
