Disneyland likes to increase their prices more often than Barry Allen likes to reset the CW Arrowverse timeline.
So a “price adjustment” (that sounds better than increase, doesn’t it?) this year is not unexpected, especially with the opening of their new Star Wars themed park Galaxy’s Edge only a few months away.
“We continue to provide our guests with a variety of ticket offerings to meet their needs, while helping us to spread visitation, better manage demand and deliver a great experience,” Disneyland Resort spokeswoman Liz Jaeger told the Los Angeles Times.
However the price increase amounts of 10% to 23% is what caught many fans off guard.
In Disney’s defense however, the new Galaxy’s Edge park does sound pretty amazing!
With the 2 massive new attractions Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, among others, Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is a major financial commitment for Disney.
Some estimates for Disney’s investment are close to $1 billion (with a “B”). No word on what interest rate they negotiated with Uncle Scrooge on the loan…
The park will also feature new original music from legendary Star Wars composer John Williams.
Here is a breakdown of Disney’s new ticket price increases:
Disney also announced that their MaxPass (ride fast lines and unlimited photos) will increase from $10 per day to $15.
Annual passes increased as well:
All prices are before taxes or fees.
Will these price increases have much effect on Disneyland ticket sales? I doubt it. If a family of five already has a Disneyland trip budgeted, I don’t see how dropping another $100 for five 5-day passes will matter.
What are your thoughts? Would this ticket price increase effect your vacation plans in anyway?
