Disney World Raises Ticket Prices
Walt Disney World announced the biggest ticket-price increase in the
last 15 years an adult ticket to any of its theme parks on Friday.
The price of a one-day, one-park adult admission increases $2.75 to
$54.75, before tax, restoring Disney's title as owner of Central
Florida's most expensive collection of theme parks. Experts
say that the record price increase is another signal that the
flagging tourism-based economy is on the mend.

Disney To Add Venue
At Wide World of Sports
Walt Disney World officials today will announce an expansion of the
resort's Wide World of Sports complex, further strengthening its
position as the world's largest multi-sport facility for amateurs.
An industry source closely tied to the negotiations, who asked not
to be identified, said Disney will break ground later this month on
the project -- the first expansion of the complex since it opened
seven years ago.
