Walt Disney World said Friday that ticket prices for its four parks in Orlando are going up on Sunday, the second of Central Florida's big three theme parks to announce a price increase in recent weeks.

Disney spokesman Craig Dezern said prices are rising 0.8 percent to 5.8 percent depending on the length of stay per ticket.

The basic one-day, one-park ticket will cost $63 plus tax, up from $59.75, or a 5.4 percent increase.

Disney's seven-day Magic Your Way ticket, for example, will cost $204 effective Sunday, up from $199, or a 2.5 percent increase. But the per-day cost averages $29.14, if the ticket-holder visits for all of the seven consecutive days allowed.

A two-day Magic Your Way ticket, by contrast, is rising to $125 from $119, or 5 percent, and that works out to be $62.50 per day.

Florida residents once again are getting a price break, for one-day and three-day tickets.

The one-day Florida-resident ticket is rising to $56.70, from $53.75, up 5.5 percent. The three-day pass will be $120, up 0.8 percent from $119.

Disney's tickets are for ages 10 and older. Various price ranges are available for youngsters 3 to 9. Prices for those various children's tickets as well as various annual passes also will go up effective Jan. 1.
