NEW YORK — The “Happiest Place on Earth” now comes with seasonal pricing.

Starting Sunday, Disney’s Walt Disney World resort in Florida and Disneyland in California will charge different ticket prices for its parks depending on the time of year, the company announced in a blog post.

The calendar will be divided into Value, Regular and Peak periods. The new pricing plan will apply to one-day tickets.

A one-day park ticket at Orlando’s Magic Kingdom during a Value period will stay at current levels of $105 for those aged 10 and above.

But tickets during Regular season days (most of April, for example) will rise to $110. The price will then shoot up to $124 for Peak days. That includes holidays like the Fourth of July, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

At Disney World’s three other parks (Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom) one-day tickets will be $97 for Value, $102 for Regular and $114 for Peak.

Tickets to Anaheim’s Disneyland will cost $95 for Value, $105 for Regular, and $119 for Peak.

Disney said it’s trying to find “ways to help spread out visitation.”

“The demand for Disney Parks continues to grow, particularly during peak periods,” the company said. “At the same time, we have an unwavering commitment to exceeding the expectations of all our guests.”

Disney notes that the seasonal demand prices are posted in advance.

The price change comes at a time where the company is planning major expansions based on popular brands like “Star Wars,” “Toy Story” and “Avatar.”

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
