Disneyland set to increase prices, again

Disneyland set to increase prices, again

The Los Angeles Times reported that Disneyland Resort announced that ticket prices are increasing by up to 25 percent for daily tickets, annual passes, and parking. Peak demand days will go from $135 to $149. Parking rates at Disneyland rose 25% to US$25 a day.

The increases did not go over well with some Disney fans online.

In 2016, Disneyland switched to a flexible, demand-based ticketing system, adjusting prices with the season people want to visit and the expected number of guests in the park for specific days.

Don't expect Disneyland to get less crowded, says Robert Niles, editor of ThemeParkInsider.com. The cheapest annual pass, which blocks out all weekends for most of the summer months as well as fall and winter holidays, will cost $399.

"It's not about making kids happy anymore, it's about making money", a mother lamented on Twitter.

Of course, none of those prices include the cost of Mickey ears, ice cream cones and other items that make a day at Disney complete.

Disney World's price increase did little to dampen enthusiasm for the Florida park, which was forced to close its doors to new visitors at one point on New Year's Eve last year, according to CNN affiliate WKMG.

The prices apply to both the original Disneyland in Anaheim, California, and its sister park, California Adventure.

Disneyland Resort is raising prices ahead of the scheduled opening of a Star Wars-themed expansion, and the cheapest daily ticket will cost more than $100.

Visitors to either 14-acre land will be able to drink at a Mos Eisley-style cantina, fly in a Millennium Falcon and see a battle between the Resistance and the First Order.
