Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES -- As if rising gas and food prices weren't enough, a ticket to the Magic Kingdom will soon cost a few bucks more. The Walt Disney Co. is raising one-day ticket prices.

At Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., one-day prices are up from $66 to $69 for those aged 10 and older, and from $56 to $59 for children aged 3 to 9.

The price increase applies in varying degrees for longer stays, while the park hopper option, an add-on that allows ticket-holders to move among any of Disney's parks, will cost $50, up from $45.

Tickets for those aged 10 and older to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., are up from $71 to $75, while tickets for children aged 3 to 9 went from $60 to $63.
