A one-day adult ticket for Disneyland or California Adventure is $99 for the low-demand days, such as weekdays in May. That's a $2 increase over ticket prices previous year on "value" days. The hike comes after Disney reported increased attendance at its theme parks in its first-quarter. During peak times, expect to pay $129 for a single-day ticket.

Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and Disneyland in Anaheim, California, are raising ticket prices by several dollars starting Sunday. The year is divided into value, regular, and peak periods with a calendar available online mapping out prices and periods from 8 to 11 months out. The value ticket will still cost $97. A value ticket costs $109, a $2 increase from 2017. More details on that when we have them.

Annual pass prices at California's Disneyland are going up by as much as almost 18 percent, as Disney looks to better balance its crowd levels throughout the year. For non-Florida residents, a platinum pass went from $779 to $849.

"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 attendance throughout the year", said Andrea Finger, spokeswoman for Walt Disney World.

The price for parking is also increasing.

Theme parks are Disney's second-largest division, bringing in $18.4 billion in revenue and $3.8 billion in operating income for the fiscal year that ended in September, according to company earnings reports.

Disney's theme parks adjust their one-day ticket prices based on expected crowd levels for the day.
