During peak times, expect to pay $129 for a single-day ticket.

At Disney World, prices for "value" days increased to $109 for adults and $103 for children - a $2 uptick - and prices for tickets during regular days increased to $119 for adults and $113 for children - a $4 increase, according to the Associated Press.

Buoyed by new attractions like Pandora-The World of Avatar, the theme parks and resorts accounted for a third of Disney's $55.1 billion in 2017 revenue, with domestic attendance hitting a record high.

Ticket prices at Walt Disney World Orlando and Disneyland in California both have been increased for the coming season. Those one-day "value" tickets are also increasing $2, raising the price to $102 for adults and $96 for kids. "Regular" times for adults will be $114 for adults and $108 for children, and "peak" tickets jump to $122 and $116, respectively for adults and children.

As for annual passes, the least-expensive pass costs 729 USA dollars, up from 619 US dollars. 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. Former Signature pass costs 849 USA dollars, which includes free parking, goes up to 999 US dollars while the most expensive Signature Plus pass, with free parking and an online app to board rides faster, is now 1,149 USA dollars, up from 1,049 US dollars. And the Silver pass with block out dates during Christmas, spring break, and the summer costs $439, up from $419. Managers of the company have been struggling for years to balance their desire to keep the parks full against the reality that they are crowded on a daily basis.

At Disneyland, the resort will change its annual pass structure yet again later this year, as it attempts to guard against human gridlock in Disneyland when the new Star Wars land opens in 2019.

All prices changes are reflected on the official Disney Parks website.

Company officials said Sunday that this program will evolve in 2018 to address the visitation patterns of their guests.
