The cost increase will vary from park to park as well as which day since Disney offers a three-tiered system for peak, regular and value tickets. Annual passes, including those for Florida residents, are also on the rise.

At the gate, a one-day regular Magic Kingdom ticket will cost $119, a $4 increase. A value ticket will cost $109, a $2 increase, while a peak ticket will now cost $129, a $5 increase.

For the other three parks — Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom — prices are also increasing.

A one-day regular ticket is $114, a $7 increase. A value ticket will cost $102, a $3 increase, while a peak ticket is $122, a $3 increase.

Parking per car will also increase from $22 a day, up from $20, and preferred parking $45, up from $40.

In addition, Disney raised prices for Florida-resident annual passes:

$729, up from $679, for Platinum pass with no blockout dates.
$589, up from $559, for Gold pass with blockout dates during Christmas and spring break.
$439, up from $419 for Silver pass with blockout dates during Christmas, spring break and the summer.

Keeping track of price increase announcements would be full time job.
Also beginning with cash reservations made Jan 2018 an increase in adult occupancy at Disney Resorts:
2 Adults over age 18 standard occupancy but registering 3 or more at
Value Resorts $15 (previously $10 per)
Moderate $25 (was $15)
Deluxe $35 (was $25)
plus taxes

I guess we should consider this a DVC perk since we can have 4-5 guests in standard studio, etc....
