The Mouse is after more cheese

Walt Disney World – the granddaddy of Florida theme parks – this week announced its second ticket price increase in a year. The cost of a single-day ticket to the Magic Kingdom will now cost $99, up from $95. As recently as last May, the price was $89.

For kids 3-9 years old, rose from $89 to $93.

Admission also went up at Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom ($94).

Looking to save some money? There’s a vibrant online community of Disney park enthusiasts. Check them out for links to ticket discounts but, as Mousesavers.com says: “Don’t count on saving a huge amount. You’re probably going to have to pay 80%-95% of full price. Still, if you’re buying passes for a couple or a family, even a 5% discount on your Disney tickets can add up to a chunk of money.”
