Disney World raises one-day admission to Magic Kingdom to $99 (w/video)

Just in time for spring break, Disney has increased the cost of a single-day ticket to Magic Kingdom to $99, plus tax. Tickets for children ages 3 to 9 are $93 per day.

The new prices, which took effect Sunday, reflect a $4 boost and make the theme park the most expensive in the area. Disney also raised one-day admission prices to its other Orlando parks — Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. Those cost $94 for ages 10 and up, and $88 for ages 3 to 9.

"Our pricing reflects the high quality and breadth of experiences we offer and our ongoing commitment to investing in our parks," Disney spokesman Bryan Malenius told the Orlando Sentinel. "We offer a variety of ticket options that provide a great value and find that most guests select multiday tickets that offer additional savings."

The price hikes are the second in less than a year. In June, Disney increased the admission price to Magic Kingdom by $6. The other Disney parks rose by $1.

By comparison, admission to Universal Orlando's parks, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, cost $92 for adults and $86 for children.
