Walt Disney Parks and Resorts may be considering a new tiered payment system, according the Los Angeles Times.  

Annual pass holders reportedly received an online survey with questions about a new pricing schedule for daily tickets to the parks in Orlando, Florida, and Anaheim, California.  

According to the survey, Gold-priced tickets could be used every day of the year, while Silver-priced tickets could be used every day except peak days and holiday weeks, reports the Times. Bronze tickets could be used only on off-peak weekends.

In the survey, Bronze tickets would be $99, with Silver tickets at $105 and Gold tickets $115. Tickets to Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom in Orlando are $105 for a single-day adult ticket, while tickets to Disneyland in Anaheim are less expensive at $99.

The survey asks annual pass holders if they would visit the parks more or less often under the proposed pricing schedule. The tiered pricing options may be an attempt to lessen crowds at the park by charging higher prices for higher demand days.

Disney has not released any official statement on the potential pricing change, according to USA Today.
