Ticket prices are going up at Walt Disney World and Disneyland, but the increase shouldn't come as a surprise. During "regular" time, park visitors will pay $4 more with prices jumping to $119 for adults and $113 for children. "Value" days for Magic Kingdom will cost $109 for adults and $103 for children.

The new prices still reflect the amusement parks' ticketing policies that reflect popular visiting hours, with value-priced tickets, regular tickets and peak-priced tickets.

At Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, "value" one-day tickets will now be $102 for adults and $96 for children, which is a $2 bump for both.

Value and regular one-day tickets are now US$97 and US$117, respectively, compared to US$97 and US$110 past year.

Walt Disney Co. raised admission prices to its theme parks and said it plans to introduce fixed-date ticketing in coming months to help reduce crowding at peak times.

Purdue Pharma pleaded guilty in 2007 to felony charges for false marketing of OxyContin and paid $635 million as a result. It later acknowledged that its promotions exaggerated the safety of the drug and minimized its risk for addiction.

Price increases that took effect Sunday varied by resort location, the number of days purchased, state residency and other factors. A single-day ticket during peak periods will climb to $135, an $11 increase. The value ticket will still cost $97.

In October 2015, the Disneyland introduced flexible pricing at USA parks as an incentive for guests to visit during less busy times.

"We know how important making memories at Disney theme parks is for our guests", said Kim Prunty, a spokeswoman for the Burbank, California-based entertainment company. The prices for Signature and Deluxe annual passes are going up by more than 17 percent, as is the renewal price for a SoCal annual pass, which is no longer available for sale to new customers.

That means that at some point in 2018, multi-day tickets to Walt Disney World's theme parks will become date-specific.
