Disney puts on their annual holiday light display.

On Oct. 16, Walt Disney World in Orlando raised the prices for single-day tickets from $109 to $129 in effort to reduce crowding.

Ticket pricing now varies on the day you plan to visit. Prices range from $109 to $129, depending on how packed the day is expected to be.

In Sept., Disney World officials said prices at the resort’s four theme parks will be adjusted to be the same price in order to make an effort to reduce large crowding in all the parks. Three years ago, Disney introduced flexible pricing at U.S. parks as an incentive for guests to visit during less busy times. Each month is divided into value, regular and peak days.

“Given the small percentage of guests that purchase a one-day ticket at Walt Disney World, extending pre-published, date-specific pricing to multi-day tickets will further advance our efforts to spread attendance throughout the year and ensure all guests have a magical experience no matter when they visit,” Disney Spokeswoman Andrea Finger told The Orlando Sentinel.
