Just days after Walt Disney World raised ticket prices, Universal Orlando announced it is raising prices, too.

Starting immediately, a one-day, single-park “base” adult ticket is $96 plus tax, up from $92. The price for a child’s ticket jumped from $86 to $90.

A one-day, two-park (“park-to-park”) ticket went from $128 to $136 for adults and $122 to $130 for children.

A two-day “base” ticket to either Universal Studios Florida or Universal’s Islands of Adventure increased from $146.99 to $155.99 for adults and $136.99 to $145.99 for children.

A two-day, “park-to-park” pass went from $166.99 to $195.99 for adults and from $156.99 to $185.99 for children.

The price increase comes shortly before the planned opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Diagon Alley, scheduled for this summer at Universal Studios Florida.

The attraction will join The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

Visitors must buy a “park-to-park” pass to ride the Hogwarts Express train, which will link the two Harry Potter lands.

“We set our prices to reflect the value of the entertainment experience we provide,” Universal spokesman Tom Schroder said in a statement.

Disney just raised its one-day ticket price to the Magic Kingdom, its most popular theme park, from $95 to $99.
