Universal Orlando follows Disney's lead, raises ticket prices

Single-day tickets jump $5 to $110


ORLANDO, Fla. – Days after Walt Disney World raised ticket prices to its theme parks, Universal Orlando is doing the same.

One-day single-park tickets to Universal jumped to $110, a $5 increase. Park-to-park tickets, allowing guests to go to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, jumped $10 to $165.

Disney and Universal offer bundle packages that decrease the cost of a daily ticket.

Disney on Sunday raised its single-day price to Magic Kingdom from $105 to $107. Single-day tickets for children are $101.

Prices increase during peak times at the parks.

Orlando's other major theme park, SeaWorld, costs $99.99 for a single-day ticket.

It has become routine for Universal to follow Disney's lead in raising prices.

No price has yet been set for Volcano Bay, Universal's new water park scheduled to open in May.
