A trip to a Disney theme park will likely cost you more money in 2018.

The Associated Press reports that the prices for most tickets to five Disney parks are increasing.

The higher prices, which are up by anywhere from $2 to $11 per ticket, started Sunday.

Disney’s current prices

The AP reports that Disney’s prices are as follows at the five affected parks, all of which are in Florida except for California’s Disneyland:

Magic Kingdom:

  • Adult ticket for value days: $109
  • Child ticket for value days: $103
  • Adult ticket for regular days: $119
  • Child ticket for regular days: $113
  • Adult ticket for peak days: $129
  • Child ticket for peak days: $123

Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom:

  • Adult ticket for value days: $102
  • Child ticket for value days: $96
  • Adult ticket for regular days: $114
  • Child ticket for regular days: $108
  • Adult ticket for peak days: $122
  • Child ticket for peak days: $116

Disneyland:

  • Ticket for value days: $97
  • Ticket for regular days: $117
  • Ticket for peak days: $135

Prices have also increased for Florida residents, with the new prices reflected on each park website.

One price that did not change is that of a Disneyland ticket for a value day.

Saving money at Disney

These increases follow price hikes made in 2015 and surge prices announced in 2016. You don’t have to write off a Disney vacation because of this, though.

Clearly, one way to save a good chunk of change at Disney is to plan to visit on a “value” day. Compared with visiting on “peak” days, you would save $20 per adult and $20 per child at the above Florida parks. You would save $38 at Disneyland.
