In an email statement, Disney explained that in order to “better manage demand” and reflective of the distinctly Disney offerings at all their parks, they had to hike their prices.
“If you compare our pricing to other forms of family entertainments- from football games to golf events to ski passes, major concerts- we offer a great value for the money. Guests can enjoy a full day of entertainment (approximately 16 hours) when at Disney Parks,” claimed a company spokesman.

A spokesperson further explained that by making online order or by phone call order before getting to the gate of their parks, the guests are now able to save up to $20 of three-to-ten day passes of Walt Disney World.
Last February, Disney had created three seasonal prices for its one-day tickets and this altered its park price. The calendar was divided into different categories such as peak, regular and value periods. The peak periods were more expensive as compared to the rest, with value period being the cheapest of all.
Disney could now get some extra cash to use from this latest price boost.
The company announced on Friday that a total of $2 billion is being poured by the company into its only European theme park known as Disneyland Paris, which in the past years has been struggling with huge debts.
