Planning a summer trip to Disney World? You’re gonna pay
As heard on Tuesday’s Golden Corner’s Morning Show with Kris Butts, Walt Disney Co has raised single-day admission prices as much as 6.7 percent. The increase took effect over the weekend at its theme parks in Florida and California, hikes that are more than five times the rate of inflation. Higher prices for Disney’s theme parks have become an annual tradition. As of Sunday, one-day entry to Disney’s Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World resort in Orlando, Florida, costs $95 for a person age 10 or older, a 6.7 percent increase. A single-day pass to one of two parks at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, rose 5.7 percent to $92. A park hopper ticket for entry to both California parks on the same day increased 9.6 percent to $137.
