Oh my Disney, we all woke up to the news of the surprise raise in ticket, parking, and Disney Annual Pass prices for Disneyland. We all knew it was coming, but it normally happens on the firsts days of February, so the price increase so early in the year, it does come as a surprise for all Disney fans, and not a very magical one this time.
Some say it is a way to have crowd control, others think it is related to the opening of Star Wars Land later this summer. Regardless of the reason, it is getting harder for big families to be able to afford a visit to the mouse and build memories
Disneyland has divided their daily tickets into 3 categories or “tiers”:
Value about 20% of the year and are mostly weekdays (M-Th) during the “off season.”
Peak about 30% of the year, including all dates during the Christmas-New Years season, all of spring break, and weekends (F-Su) in the summer.
Regular dates include all of the other days not labeled as “value” or “peak”.
Effective today the Disneyland Resort ticket pricing is:
Parking pricing also went up
Standard parking is now $25/day
Preferred Parking is $40/day
Annual Passes also had an increase on their pricing
