ANAHEIM, Calif .– Visiting the happiest place on Earth just got more expensive.
The Walt Disney Co. has increased ticket prices for Disneyland and Disney California Adventure on most of their day and multi-day ticket packages amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
As of Monday, October 25, the price of a day ticket to Disneyland or Disney California Adventure increases by $ 5 or $ 10 depending on the day of the visit. Park Hopper tickets, which get people to visit both theme parks in one or more days, have increased to $ 25.
Parking prices have increased by $ 5, from $ 25 to $ 30.
In 2016, Disney integrated a multi-tier dynamic ticket pricing structure, charging more on high demand days and handling crowds.
Under the new plan, a daytime and daytime park visit to the lowest demand remains unchanged at $ 104. A one-day and one-day park visit at level two or a day at level five has increased by $ 5, from $ 114 to $ 119 and from $ 154 to $ 159, respectively. Ticket prices for a one-day park visit on a level three or four day jumped $ 10, from $ 124 to $ 134 and from $ 139 to $ 149, respectively.
Additionally, Disney introduced a Sixth Level Admission Ticket, priced at $ 159. The sixth level ticket is good for tours any day of the year, including popular times during the Christmas holidays.
Park Hopper tickets have also increased. Depending on the day, a Park Hopper ticket increased by $ 10 or $ 15. Multi-day park ticket prices jumped $ 25. The cost of parking has also dropped from $ 25 to $ 30.
“Demand to visit Disneyland Resort remains strong thanks to the continued phased reopening, which began in April 2021,” a Disneyland spokesperson said in a press release. “As we continue to invest in our parks with new experiences and improved technology for digital planning tools that are uniquely Disney, this is an exciting time to visit Disneyland Resort. “
The ticket price hike came about 18 months after the governor of California closed theme parks, including the Disneyland Resort, to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The last time Disney increased ticket prices it was in february 2020, a month before closing due to the pandemic.
Disneyland reopened earlier this year in late April following strong demand. In the company’s latest earnings report, Disney reported an increase in theme park capacity and a solid reservation of theme park reservations.
But hiring and re-hiring has remained slow, and many popular theme park attractions, including Fantasmic! and World of Color, remain closed.
Still, people visit Anaheim theme parks. In August, Disney unveiled a new annual pass program called magic key.
The popularity of the program caused the Dream Key, the premier annual pass that includes theme park visits any day of the year and free parking, to sell out.
The other annual passes, those that don’t include parking fees, are still available, Disney officials said.
The good news for Disneyland visitors is that the streetcar, which has been closed and carries visitors from Disneyland’s Mickey and Friends parking lot to the esplanade between Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, will return early next year, said. from Disney officials.
