Today the Disneyland Resort has announced via the Disney Parks Blog, that effective May 20, ticket prices will be increased. An increase in ticket prices has become an annual occurrence since the park’s successful 50th Anniversary, which in retrospect is the reason for the Resort’s huge new expansion. The new prices are as follows.
Disneyland Resort Ticket Options
Ticket Ages 10+ Ages 3-9 5-Day Park Hopper $290 $270 5-Day 1-Park Per Day $260 $240 4-Day Park Hopper $275 $255 4-Day 1-Park Per Day $245 $225 3-Day Park Hopper $250 $235 3-Day 1-Park Per Day $220 $205 2-Day Park Hopper $200 $188 2-Day 1-Park Per Day $170 $158 1-Day Park Hopper $125 $119 1-Day 1-Park $87 $81
1-Park Per Day admits guest to one theme park each day of use. Park choices are: Disneyland park or Disney California Adventure park.
Park Hopper option entitles guest to visit both theme parks on each day of use.
Disneyland Resort Annual Passports
Premium $649 Deluxe $469 Southern California* $329 Southern California Select* $269
Deluxe, Southern California and Select Passport holders can add parking for an additional $129 per year.

The new prices now match those of the Walt Disney World Resort. Now while some may feel that the new prices may be borderline high-way robbery for only two parks, allow me to justify them. This summer is expected to be one of the biggest summers at a Disney Resort in recent history, and with an annual pass holder count of over 1,000,000 in the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area, it becomes as simple as supply and demand. The more people want to visit Disneyland, the higher the ticket prices will be, and Disney takes action. Also with the huge amount of Pass holder’s in Southern California this could also be seen as a method of lightening the load of AP holders as I am sure many will feel the prices are just too high.
How do you feel about the new prices? Too High? Does it affect your upcoming vacation? For more information about the new offerings coming to the Disneyland Resort this summer check back, or check Disney’s official blog The Disney Parks Blog.
