Planning a trip to Disney World? You may want to save your pennies up for a bit longer. For the second time in just one year, the cost to get into Florida’s Walt Disney World has jumped considerably. This time, you’ll be paying a cool $99 for just one ticket—a $4 bump from when the price last went up in June.

Taking a kid between the ages of 3 and 9 will be a bit less—$93—but for anyone who’s ever brought a kid to an amusement park only to witness them protest rides and throw an epic public meltdown, that’s still a tough number to swallow. The good news is any kid under 3 still gets in for free.

Speaking with the Orlando Sentinel, Disney spokesperson Bryan Malenius tried to explain the reasons behind the spike. "Our pricing reflects the high quality and breadth of experiences we offer and our ongoing commitment to investing in our parks," he explains. "We offer a variety of ticket options that provide a great value, and find that most guests select multi-day tickets that offer additional savings."

The park is most likely trying to cover the cost of MyMagic+, a new high-tech ticketing and ride reservation system that uses smart wristbands. That project alone cost Disney a reported $1.5 billion, but was isolated to Disney World, as opposed to other locales like California’s Disneyland.
