Disney Parks has raised the price of admission to Disney World in 2014. Single-day tickets to the Magic Kingdom now cost $99 for adults, while one-day admission to Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios cost $94. Children 10 and older pay adult admission prices, kids ages 3 to 9 pay $93 at Magic Kingdom and $88 at the other three main parks. Admission is free for kids under age 3. The park hopper add-on now cost $35 for one day, $49 for two or three days, and $60 for four to ten days.
Disney World tickets are substantially less expensive if you buy multi-day tickets. For example, a four-day ticket costs $73.50 per day for adults and $68.50 for kids ages 3 to 9.
Comparatively, a single-day one-park ticket to Universal Orlando currently costs $96 for adults and $90 for kids. A one-day, park-to-park ticket (needed if you plan to travel between Diagon Alley and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter via the Hogswart Express train) costs $136 for adults and $130 for children.
A single-day ticket to SeaWorld Orlando currently costs $82 for adults and $77 for children ages 3 to 9.
If you haven't been to Disney World in a while, note that Disney has been rolling out a new ticketing process called MyMagic+ which will eventually replace the old system completely. MyMagic+ revolutionizes the Disney World vacation by bundling nearly every aspect of your trip together. Instead of a ticket, you get a MagicBand, a rubber bracelet containing a computer chip that holds all the components of your Disney World vacation—theme park ticket, room key, FastPass, dining reservations, PhotoPass—and it also acts as a resort charge card. Here's how to use Disney's MyMagic+.
