The Disneyland Resort in California raised prices across the board on tickets and annual passes this morning, with some one day-ticket prices rising over 10 percent and top annual passes going up by more than 20 percent.
Disneyland has not instituted variable ticket prices on multi-day tickets, as Florida's Walt Disney World Resort did in October. However, Disneyland continues to offer three price tiers on single-day tickets to the resort's theme parks, depending upon the expected attendance level each day.
"We continue to provide our guests with a variety of ticket offerings to meet their needs, while helping us to spread visitation, better manage demand and deliver a great experience," a Disneyland spokesperson said, in reference to the price increases.
Here are the old and new prices on Disneyland's tickets and annual passes, as provided by Disneyland:
|1 Day, 1 Park VALUE||$97||$104|
|1 Day Park Hopper VALUE||147||154|
|1 Day, 1 Park REGULAR||117||129|
|1 Day Park Hopper REGULAR||167||179|
|1 Day, 1 Park PEAK||135||149|
|1 Day Park Hopper PEAK||185||199|
|2 Days, 1 Park/Day||210||225|
|2 Days Park Hopper||260||280|
|3 Days, 1 Park/Day||280||300|
|3 Days Park Hopper||330||355|
|4 Days, 1 Park/Day||305||325|
|4 Days Park Hopper||355||380|
|5 Days, 1 Park/Day||320||340|
|5 Days Park Hopper||370||395|
Prices on multi-day tickets went up by about 6 to 7 percent, for both Park Hoppers and one-park-per-day tickets. On single-day tickets, the price increase percentage rose with expected attendance levels, with Value day tickets rising the least and Peak day tickets the most.
But the biggest percentage price increases came on annual passes. Again, it'll cost you more in 2019 to visit the Disneyland theme parks on their busiest days. While the Select pass — which is blocked out for most of the summer, all weekends and many peak vacation weeks — rose a relatively modest 8 percent, the price of the Signature pass — which is only blocked for two weeks at Christmas — went up 15 percent. And the Signature Plus — which is good every day of the year — rose nearly 22 percent.
But the biggest price increase of all was for Disney's biggest ticket — the combo Disneyland/Walt Disney World Premier pass, which went up by more than 23 percent to $1,949 a year.
Disney also raised the price of its Maxpass upgrade by 50 percent, from $10 a day to $15. Adding Maxpass to an annual pass is up from $75 to $100.
Parking goes up 25 percent — from $20 to $25 a day. Downtown Disney's hourly parking rate goes up a couple of bucks — from $12 to $14 a hour, with a new $56 daily maximum. The validation rules remain the same — three hours are free with a $20 purchase from a merchandise or quick service restaurant and five hours free with validation from select table service restaurants.
To take some of the pain away, Disneyland earlier released ticket discount deals for Southern California residents, members of the U.S. military, and for the general public. Those deals remain in effect, so if you are considering a visit this winter or spring (in other words, before Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens, likely in June), get whichever ticket deal you can rather than paying the list price.Tweet
