Disneyland to Increase Ticket Prices

With the upcoming additions to Disney California Adventure nearing completion, Disney has announced that they will be increasing ticket prices for Disneyland Resort.  On May 20th, prices are rising from $80 for a one day, one park ticket to $87 for the same ticket.  This increase comes before what should be one of the busiest years for Disneyland Resort in recent history with the highly anticipated Carsland opening at California Adventure.

Tickets have increased across the board for every option.  This includes regular tickets and park hoppers, as well as annual passports.  It would also appear that Disney has decided to remove the 6 Day Ticket Option, as it does not appear in the new pricing structure.

Here is a look at the new pricing according to Disney:

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

The One Park Per Day option allows guests to experience only one park per each day’s use.  The Park Hopper option allows guests the opportunity to visit both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure on the same day.

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.
*Valid proof of Southern California residency required for purchase and use.

It also appears that the Premier Passport allowing guests to visit all the parks at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World is increasing in price by $100 from $749 to $849.

For those of you who are making the trip to Disneyland this year, I would suggest purchasing your tickets before this Sunday, May 20th.

  • What wonderful and unexpected news!

  • does that mean that current passports will go up?

  • Thanks for the heads up!
    Got 2-6 day hoppers for $496.00 from aRes Travel
    (such a bargain!)

  • I realize that you specialize in all things Disney but I’m wondering if you’ve ever noticed Universal raising their prices around the same time or if there’s a time of year they trend towards. Thanks for your help.

  • The premium pass went up almost $150. That is insanity. I know a few pass holders who will not be renewing.
    Is this a measure by Disney to reduce the number of AP holders? DL visitors are largely comprised of AP holders and many of them don’t spend additional money in the parks. Perhaps this will reduce the crowd level and increase revenue.
