Prices rise at Walt Disney World

The price of admission at Walt Disney World's four parks in Orlando has gone higher in 2006.

Disney spokesman Craig Dezern told the Orlando Sentinel that prices are rising 0.8% to 5.8%, depending on the length of stay per ticket. The basic one-day, one-park ticket costs $63 plus tax, up from $59.75. That's a 5.4% increase.

Longer stays at Disney are less expensive on a per-day basis, a strategy designed to entice people to extend their visit.

Competitor SeaWorld Florida in Orlando announced on Dec. 14 that it would raise its one-day adult ticket to $61.95 plus tax effective Jan. 2, a rise of 3.7% from the previous year.

Universal Orlando, meanwhile, still charges $59.75 plus tax for its one-day adult ticket to Islands of Adventure or Universal Studios, unchanged since December 2004, the Sentinel reports.

Universal spokesman Tom Schroder told the newspaper that the company would have no comment on Disney's latest price increase. He would not speculate on when Universal might boost its own prices.
