Why Did Disneyland Jack Up Prices?

Disneyland announced on Monday that ticket prices have been increased now that the summer holiday is getting closer and customers are expected to queue for hours in front of the gates. The company claims the 6% increase won’t prevent people from visiting the theme park, especially in the summer holiday, Fox News reports.

Hotels and resorts are getting ready to welcome guests for the summer holiday. Some have prepared affordable offers, while others have increased ticket prices being sure that guests will visit them no matter what. Disneyland belongs to the second category now that the theme park has revealed that ticket prices will increase by 6%. The most visible difference, however, is for the tickets that are valid for a longer period of time.

The company’s spokesperson revealed that a one-day ticket for adults will cost $95, whereas for children ages nine and younger will cost $89. Until now, adults had to spend $89 on a one-day ticket and children $83. The increase is valid for all Disneyland theme parks, be they in Orlando or California. Parking passes, too, will be more expensive starting this month; visitors will pay $1 more for a one-day ticket.

The most visible differences will be for the tickets that are valid on a longer period of time or which contain exclusive services. The Deluxe Annual Passports, which allow customers to visit the California parks 315 days a year, have been subject to the biggest cost increase; thus, consumers will have to pay $499 instead of $469. Premium Annual Passports went up by $20 and they now cost $669. The Disney Premier Passport, the most expensive ticket, which allows unlimited access to the California and Florida parks, will cost $979 and not $849.

There are several tricks that visitors can use to save money and compensate for the budget holes that the recent increase may cause. Looking for bundled packages and over packing to avoid unwanted expenses are the first two steps you need to make to reduce Disneyland costs.
