Your next trip to Walt Disney World just got a little more expensive.

Prices for tickets and annual passes have once again increased, effective Sunday.

The hike comes after Disney reported increased attendance at its theme parks in its first-quarter.

Disney World operates under a tiered pricing system, meaning the cost of tickets will depend on when you visit.

At Magic Kingdom, a single-day regular ticket now costs $119 for adults. That’s a $4 increase.

A value ticket costs $109, a $2 increase from 2017. During peak times, expect to pay $129 for a single-day ticket.  

Prices for tickets to Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom have also increased.

A single-day regular ticket now cost $114, a $7 increase from last year. A value ticket is $102, while a peak ticket costs $122, up from $119.

“We know how important making memories at Disney theme parks is to families and we will continue to evolve our pricing in a way that gives families a range of options to meet their budget and helps better spread attendance throughout the year so they can make the most of every visit," Disney spokeswoman Andrea Finger said.

Disney also raised prices for annual passes.  

The Florida-resident Platinum pass, with has no blockout dates, now costs $729, up from $679. The Gold pass, which has two blockout periods costs $589, a $30 increase. And the Silver pass with blockout dates during Christmas, spring break, and the summer costs $439, up from $419.

Disney also plans to sell multi-day tickets with date-specific pricing later this year.

Prices for parking is also increasing. Standard parking will now cost $22 per day, while preferred parking will cost $45 per day.

The price increases comes months ahead of the opening of Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this summer.

Disney has several projects in the works including Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, set to open in 2019, a Guardians of the Galaxy coaster at Epcot and a Tron coaster at Magic Kingdom.  

All prices changes are reflected on the official Disney Parks website.
