CNN) — Heading to Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park for spring break with the children?
The most expensive theme park at Walt Disney World Resort just got a little pricier. Starting February 23, visitors ages 10 and up will pay $99 for one-day tickets to the Magic Kingdom, a $4 increase.
Prices for one-day tickets at Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios also increased $4, from $90 to $94.
“Our pricing reflects the high quality and breadth of experiences we offer and our ongoing commitment to investing in our parks,” said Kim Prunty, Walt Disney World spokeswoman, via e-mail. “We offer a variety of ticket options that provide a great value, and find that most guests select multi-day tickets that offer additional savings.”
The Walt Disney Co. reported company revenues of $12.3 billion for the quarter ending December 28, 2013, a 9% increase from the same quarter in 2012. Of that $12.3 billion in revenues, $3.6 billion came from its parks and resorts. Parks and resorts revenues saw a 6% increase from the same quarter in 2012.
Many visitors to the Disney parks purchase multi-day passes, which can decrease the daily cost of visiting the parks.
CNN first learned of the price increase from a Tampa Bay Times Tweet.
