Walt Disney World ticket cost increasing

It now costs $83 for a one-day, one-park ticket to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., a Disney spokeswoman says.

Disney spokeswoman Kim Prunty said the 5.3 percent hike from $79 started Sunday, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported.

Our pricing is based on the high-quality experience we deliver to our guests, and our guests continue to agree that a ticket to Walt Disney World represents a great entertainment value, Prunty said.

Tickets for children ages 3-9 increased 7.9 percent, going from $63 to $68.

Multiday-ticket packages for the Florida tourist venue also are going up at least 2.6 percent.

The Sentinel said adding a Park Hopper feature to a Walt Disney World ticket is increasing from $50 to $52. The feature allows a customer to spend time in more than one Disney park in a day.
