LAKE BUENA VISTA (CBSMiami/AP) – You may want your bank account to wish upon a star before heading to Disney World this year. Ticket prices have jumped for the second time in less than a year at the happiest place on earth.
Admission fees to Walt Disney World now sit at $99 for ages 10 and up, a $4 increase over prices announced last June.
Tickets for kids aged 3-9 now cost $93 per day, while kids under three will continue to get in for free.
But it’s not just the Magic Kingdom that is seeing ticket prices jump. Tickets to get into Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or the Animal Kingdom now cost $94 for ages 10 and up and $88 for ages 3-9.
The price hikes are limited to Florida’s parks where the company has implemented a new high-tech wristband-based ticketing and ride reservation system.
