LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - The cost of going to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World just got more expensive.
Disney World has raised the one-day ticket price to the Magic Kingdom by $4 so that it now costs $99 before taxes for visitors over age 9. Single-day tickets for the resort's other parks - Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom - also went up by $4.
It now costs $94 to get into those parks for visitors over age 9. For children under age 10, the cost is $93 to get into the Magic Kingdom and $88 to enter the other parks.
Disney spokeswoman Kim Prunty says the pricing reflects the high quality of the parks. She also says that most guests buy multi-day tickets, which are considerably cheaper per day.
