    • New online tool debuts

    ORLANDO, Fla. - Starting today, it could cost you more to visit Walt Disney World.

    New ticket prices began Tuesday. The new pricing structure varies based on the date you're going. The new pricing system also comes with a new online planning tool.

    Disney World officials said in September that prices at the resort's four theme parks will be tweaked so they're the same. For some time, the Magic Kingdom had a higher price on any given day than Epcot, Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom.

    Disney introduced flexible pricing at U.S. parks three years ago as an incentive for guests to visit during less busy times. Each month was divided into value, regular and peak days.

    Single-day tickets now range from $109 to $129, depending on how popular the day is expected to be. Disney said the pricing structure could cost guests more or less than with the previous pricing structure.

    Visitors can find the lowest-priced days by clicking on a calendar on Walt Disney World's website.
