Disney officials announced a plan to raise the price of a one-day, one-park adult ticket to $82. Disney will also increase prices for multi-day ticket packages and annual passes.
Read more from WESH/Orlando.
Sea World doesn't really offer anything that makes their ticket price reasonable except possibly one of those "everything but Disney" package deals.
Au contraire, mon frere. In addition to that Platinum chain-wide pass, Sea World also does a "second day free" on their one-day tickets (within seven days), their APs are pretty affordable (about $100), and they also offer a 14-day ticket combining any two of SWO, Aquatica, and BGT for $100 plus tax, and all three for $110 plus tax.
But, even so, we spent a single day at SWO last year, and felt like it was more than worthwhile---about $70 per person (though my wife and kids did get the APs because they are doing "not Disney" next February.)
Disney *does* sell a one-day park hopper, and has for a few years. Today, it would set you back $136, plus tax.
Well, one of the factors of their pricing scheme is that the few people who do go for a single day are basically forced to (a) pick a single park (since there is no park hopper option on a single day ticket) and as a result is (b) basically encouraged to go to the most crowded park in the resort (Magic Kingdom) because it's the one with the most stuff in it. Okay, that or EPCOT. EPCOT is worth a full day as well.

They do offer park hopper on a single day ticket. It's $7.71 to add it on as seen here..
You're reading that chart incorrectly. Hopping is $54, regardless of the length of the ticket.Last edited by Brian Noble, Saturday, August 7, 2010 3:10 PM

Wow; that's two major changes since I last examined ticket deals. Thanks for the updates!

I see Universal raised their prices to match Disney. Is this tghe second increase for them this year, or was it Seaworld earlier in the year?
