The last time it happened was on Sunday, June 2, 2013, just about eight months ago. Now it has happened again.

Disney is raising ticket prices effective Sunday, February 23, 2014.

The price of admission to the Magic Kingdom is going up $4 to $99. Disney is keeping in place the price difference they instituted last year where it costs more to enter the Magic Kingdom on a single day ticket than it costs to enter the other parks on their Florida property.

The price for a single day ticket to Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom increased from $90 to $94.

Water Parks – No Increase

Based on information on the Disney World web site, the admission price to get into Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon is unchanged at $53 for adults and $45 for children.

Disney Vs. Inflation: Disney Wins

The estimate of the annual rate of inflation over the past eight months was about 1.4%. That means that general prices since last June have risen by about 0.9%. Disney raised the price of admission to the Magic Kingdom from $95 to $99, or an increase of about 4.2%.

What does that mean?  Disney is raising ticket prices about four times faster than other prices in the economy. Do you think they can continue to do that?

What do you think about these price increases?
