Walt Disney World Raising Prices as of 6/3/12

Walt Disney World Raising Prices as of 6/3/12
Once again Disney Parks are raising prices. To me the one price increase that is more than strange is they just raised the prices on the Premium Price by $22 on May 20th and now they are raising it again.
The information below is the current prices. Today is the LAST day for these prices and if you want to get your tickets for a future visit to the park you can still purchase them online TODAY at the current price and use them latter avoiding the price increase. So you can go to DisneyWorld.com or call your favorite travel agent and get them to book your trip TODAY.
Theme Park Tickets
Magic Your Way Tickets
Magic Your Way Base Tickets give each member of your travel party entry to one Theme Park per day each day of your ticket. And now the longer you play, the less you pay per day*!
Depending on length of ticket purchased, the average price per day for a 7-day Magic Your Way Base Ticket is less than half the price of the same single-day ticket. It's like saving over 50%!
In addition to choosing the number of days (from 1 to 10) of your ticket, you can add these fun-filled options in any combination you choose:

Magic Your Way Tickets expire 14 days from first use and may be upgraded in person if entitlements remain within 14 days of first use.

In my opinion the price increases at WDW are reasonable, unlike the price hikes at DLR. Premium Annual Passes went up from $661.19 to $699 between May 20, 2101 and the rate increase June 3, 2012 increases. That is not a bad amount considering DLR pass of the same level went up $150.
