Walt Disney Co said on Sunday it was changing the admission price for its U.S. theme parks, raising the cost of some single-day tickets by almost 9 percent.

Disney, which has a three-tier structure that charges visitors more during peak periods to help spread out crowds, said peak one-day tickets for a single theme park at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, would see the biggest increase, rising to $135 from $124.

Value and regular one-day tickets are now $97 and $117, respectively, compared to $97 and $110 last year.

One-day prices to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida rose 2 percent to 4 percent, with tickets there now ranging between $109 and $129.

The company also said it plans to make changes to its annual pass program at Disneyland as well make its multiple-day tickets to Walt Disney World date-specific in order to help manage crowds, particularly as it prepares to open a new Star Wars attraction at both parks next year.

Theme parks are Disney’s second-largest division, bringing in $18.4 billion in revenue and $3.8 billion in operating income for the fiscal year that ended in September, according to company earnings reports.

Get ready for high flying.

Los Angeles International Airport — also known as LAX —  has announced that it will permit travelers to bring small amounts of legal marijuana through security in their carry-on bags.

“The Los Angeles Airport Police Department will allow passengers to travel through LAX with up to 28.5 grams of marijuana and 8 grams of concentrated marijuana,” reads a statement on LAX’s official website, which was posted in September 2018.

California passed Proposition 64, aka the Adult Use of Marijuana Act in 2016, meaning that as of of January 1, 2018, it became legal in California “for individuals 21 years of age or older to possess up to 28.5 grams of marijuana and 8 grams of concentrated marijuana for personal consumption.”

If you’re traveling with marijuana through LAX, study up on the laws in your origin and destination airport before packing your bags.

In a time when you hope a news story is fake, this tale about gay penguins will make you want the news to actually be real. And it is!

Love is love. Even penguins know that. The large flightless seabirds also know that when two souls find love, having a baby is often the next step. That being said, a pair of gay penguins at a Denmark zoo “kidnapped” a straight couple’s hatchling and tried to take it in as their own, a zookeeper says.

And it was all caught on video.

Trump to Female Reporter: ‘You’re not thinking. You never do’

Published

on

President Donald Trump insulted a female reporter in the Rose Garden on Monday, telling her she “never” thinks before asking a question. Trump called on Cecilia Vega, a White House reporter for ABC News and started making a joke out her.

“She’s shocked that I picked her,” said Trump as a flock of staffers behind him — mostly men — smiled or laughed. “She’s, like, in a state of shock.”

“I’m not,” Vega said, rising from her seat. “Thank you, Mr. President.”

Trump, apparently mishearing “thank you” as “thinking,” responded with a seemingly unprovoked jab: “I know you’re not thinking. You never do.”

A White House transcript alleges Trump said “not thanking,” a non-sequitur given Vega had said “thank you” immediately prior. Now that’s pathetic.
