The cost of a one-day, one-park ticket to Universal Orlando has gone up three bucks to $92, plus tax. The increase made over the weekend makes Universal the first Orlando theme park to top the $90 threshold. Tickets for children ages 3 to 9 jumped to $86, plus tax. This is the second year in a row that Universal has rolled out price increases that put it ahead of Disney World. Universal has enjoyed a big attendance boost thanks to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and on June 20 is opening a major new ride based on the Transformers toys and movies. Disney's one-day, one-park price remains $89 but who knows how long that will stay. SeaWorld Orlando also raised its ticket price to $89, but officials have said they have no plans to raise admission again, even amid Friday's opening of the Antarctica penguin attraction, the largest expansion in SeaWorld's history.
