Disneyland to raise prices prior to Star Wars-themed expansion opening

Jan 7 2019, 10:07 pm

The “happiest place on earth” just became a little more expensive to visit.

Disneyland Resort has announced several price adjustments which came into effect on Sunday, January 6, 2019.

The cheapest single-day ticket has now been increased to $104 USD for an adult and $98 USD for a child. During peak times of the season, the same tickets are increased to $149 and $141, respectively – and that only covers one of the two parks, Disneyland and California Adventure.

In addition, daily parking prices have seen a 25% increase, rising from $20 to $25 USD.

Liz Jaeger, Disneyland Resort spokesperson, comments that Disneyland continues “to provide [their] guests with a variety of ticket offerings to meet their needs, while helping to spread visitation, better manage demand, and deliver a great experience.”

The adjustments come just months before the opening of their Star Wars-themed expansion. The 14-acre project, dubbed “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” is the largest-ever, single-themed expansion at the Disneyland Resort.
