Disney has confirmed that it will raise ticket prices for theme parks at both Walt Disney World and the Disneyland Resort on August 5, 2010.
The widely expected increases will come into force on Thursday, meaning that those planning to visit the parks still have a short period during which they can buy tickets at the old prices. Theme Park Tourist will be updating our Price Watch Disney ticket price comparison service over the next few days to reflect the changes which are expected to be passed on by independent resellers.
At Walt Disney World, the price of a 1-day, 1-park Magic Your Way ticket will increase by $3 to $82. Similar prices rises will be seen across the board, including for add-on options such as Park Hopping, annual passes and parking. Full details can be found on the Disney Parks Blog.
Meanwhile, Disneyland will see the price of a 1-day, 1-park admission ticket rise by $4 to $72. Premium Annual Passes will increase by $20 to $459, with other price rises detailed on the Disney Parks Blog.
The Orange County Register points out that Disneyland has increased annual pass prices twice during the last year, although the company has offered a series of discounts over the last few years to maintain attendance levels. The latest deals are listed in Theme Park Tourist's Special Offer Watch.
