Disneyland, Disney California Adventure increase one-day ticket and annual-pass prices
The price to visit Disneyland and Disney California Adventure – for either a day or with a year’s pass – is going up again.
Effective Sunday, it will cost $97 to go to one of the parks on Value days, the lowest-priced days of the year, up $2.
A visit on a Regular day will be $110, while a Peak day will cost $124, both up $5. Tickets are more on days when demand would be higher.
Parking is going to $20 from $18.
Since 2000, a single-day admission price to Disneyland has tripled on Peak days, with ticket prices going up at least once a year since 2002.
“Our pricing provides guests a range of options that allow us to better manage demand to maximize the guest experience and is reflective of the distinctly Disney offerings at all of our parks,” said Suzi Brown, a Disneyland spokeswoman.
Reaction to the announcement was swift on Saturday.
“Four hundred dollars for a family of 3 to get into the gate (on peak days),” said Tony Diamante, 57, of Temecula. “I can afford it, but this is a week’s pay for someone making $15 to $18 an hour, depending of course on taxes.”
James H. Carter II, 40 from Huntington Beach, who runs a podcast called Creepy Kingdom, said tourists will continue to pay.
