Ticket prices at Walt Disney World Orlando and Disneyland in California both have been increased for the coming season.

Now, "value" day tickets for the Magic Kingdom will increase $2, raising the price to $109 for adults and $103 for kids, beginning Sunday, according the Associated Press.

Disney ticket prices aren't the only thing going up - the number of people visiting the theme parks is also on the rise.

During "regular" time, adults will pay $119 million and children will pay $113.

"Value" one-day tickets at Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and the Animal Kingdom will cost $102 for an adult and $96 for a child. That's a $4 increase over a year ago. The regular price of admission is going up from $7 to $117, while a single-day ticket "peak" ticket will cost you $11 extra at $135. That's a $2 bump over previous year. "Peak" tickets will cost $122 for adults and $116 for children. That's a $7 rise over a year ago. The cost of a "value" ticket will remain the same at $97. For non-Florida residents, a platinum pass went from $779 to $849. Disneyland's lowest-priced (and most restricted) annual pass, the SoCal Select, is going up by almost nine percent, while the unrestricted Signature Plus, which includes free parking and Disney's Maxpass online ride reservation system, is going up by almost 10 percent, to $1,149 a year.

Disney began its flexible pricing program in October 2015.

"We will be reshaping our Annual Pass program to better manage the guest experience throughout the year, which will help all Disneyland Resort guests have a great visit, particularly as we look forward to the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in 2019", a Disneyland spokesperson said.

The company says they hope the price hike will prevent overcrowding at the theme parks.
