Disneyland hikes ticket prices sky high before Star Wars land opens

Disneyland hikes ticket prices sky high before Star Wars land opens

Tickets will now be $149, a 10.4 percent increase from the previous cost of $135.

It now costs $104 for a customer to spend a single day at a single park, either Disneyland or California Adventure on days deemed to be in low demand.

Prices for daily tickets, parking and annual passes have been raised up to 25 percent at Disneyland Resort ahead of the scheduled opening of a Star Wars-themed expansion. The 14-acre addition is expected to draw huge crowds.

'It is going to be an intense, super-fun experience in the fastest ship in the galaxy'.

The least expensive one-day ticket to Disney World in Florida is $109.

"If anything, people might switch to visiting at less crowded times of the year to escape the highest prices-but that's exactly what Disney wants its fans to do, as it looks to balance attendance levels throughout the year".

Two brand new attractions will open in both parks this year. The expansion will cost the company around $1 billion, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The most affordable (and limited use) annual Select pass increased from $369 to $399, while the most elite annual Premier pass (which combines Disneyland and Walt Disney World admission) increased from $1,579 to $1,949.

Sorry, Disneyland fans, prices are increasing.

The entertainment conglomerate says no.

Based on the ever-popular Star Wars franchise, Galaxy's Edge will include a number of rides inspired by the galaxy far, far away like Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

Why?: A Disneyland spokeswoman said the resort offers different tickets to help with park demand, Fox Business reported.
