On Sunday morning, Disney implemented new prices at both Walt Disney World in Orlando and at Disneyland in California, effective immediately. The cost of a one-day ticket jumped by as much as $11, but the exact increase varies based on the park you’re visiting and whether the day is considered a value, regular or peak date — a pricing strategy the company introduced in October 2015.

The new adult pricing is as follows:

Adults Value Regular Peak
Magic Kingdom $109 $119 $129
Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom $102 $114 $122
Disneyland $97 $117 $135

And, the new one-day ticket pricing for children is now:

Children Value Regular Peak
Magic Kingdom $103 $113 $123
Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom $96 $108 $116
Disneyland $91 $110 $127

In addition to single-day ticket increases, Disney World multi-day tickets have also been increased by up to $7.50 per day:

  • Two-day passes: $209 (increase of $10)
  • Three-day passes: $305 (increase of $16)
  • Four-day passes: $380 (increase of $30)
  • Five-day passes: $395 (increase of $25)

Florida residents weren’t spared the price increases either, though the price hikes for resident passes are much more modest:

  • Three-day passes: $209 (increase of $10)
  • Four-day passes: $229 (increase of $10)

In California’s Disneyland, multi-day adult park hopper tickets now cost as much as $8 more per day:

  • Two-day passes: $260 (increase of $16)
  • Three-day passes: $330 (increase of $15)
  • Four-day passes: $355 (increase of $20)
  • Five-day passes: $370 (increase of $20)

However, you might want to consider buying these multi-day tickets soon if you’re planning on visiting the Florida parks during a peak period. The Associated Press is reporting that the multi-day ticket pricing method “will evolve in 2018” for Walt Disney World. Disney spokeswoman Andrea Finger told the AP:

“Given the small percentage of guests that purchase a 1-day ticket at Walt Disney World, extending pre-published, date-specific pricing to multi-day tickets will further advance our efforts spread to [sic] attendance throughout the year.”

That means we can expect to see Disney’s new “peak” pricing model applied to multi-day tickets in Florida this year, and perhaps eventually in California as well. So if you’re looking to lock in the current prices before Disney rolls out that new pricing scheme, note that the terms of current Disney multi-day tickets require the first use to be “on or before December 31, 2019.”
