Disneyland and Disney World prices for 1-Day ticket will increase and adjust seasonally

Disneyland and Disney World are instituting seasonal pricing for 1-day tickets at the parks starting Feb. 28, 2016.

This means that if a person decides to purchase a 1-Day ticket for the parks, that price will fluctuate depending upon the time of the year and day of the week. There will be three tiers instituted: Value, Regular and Peak.

"The demand for our theme parks continues to grow, particularly during peak periods," Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler said in a statement. "In addition to expanding our parks, we are adopting seasonal pricing on our one-day ticket to help better spread visitation throughout the year. Multi-day tickets, annual passes and visiting during non-peak periods also provide our guests with options and savings."

Here is a breakdown of the costs for the the various parks:

Magic Kingdom at Disney World: Value is $105 (the same price as the current 1-Day ticket), Regular will be $110 and Peak will be $124.

Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom: Value will be $97, Regular will be $110 and Peak will be $114.

Disneyland and California Adventure: Value is $95 (which is $4 cheaper than the current price), Regular will be $105 and Peak will be $119.

Multi-day ticket charges are also expected to change, however, annual passes are not (since they changed those to a new tier system in October 2015.).

Disney will post a calendar online which is shows 8 to 11 months ahead, what the prices will be per day. Those calendars will be available starting Feb. 28 on the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort pages.

"On demand" pricing is nothing new. Airlines and hotels have been doing it for years. Earlier this month, Universal Studios in Hollywood instituted on demand pricing in anticipation of the April 7 opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, according to the Los Angeles Times.
