Disney theme park tickets now just got more expensive

Price increases are a part of life, and enjoying your favorite place is no different. Disney theme park tickets now just got more expensive.

It seems the value of theme park tickets has gone down a bit due to the debut of paid skip-the-line benefits. With Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane Selections, you are essentially paying for attractions on top of just getting into the park.

Not only has the top tier Disneyland Magic Key sold out, but theme park tickets have also increased today.

If you want to just visit one park per day (either Disneyland Resort or California Adventure), here is what you will expect to pay. Do note, these will change based on crowd levels and time of year. Holidays and weekends will be more expensive, for example.

  • Tier 1: Remains $104
  • Tier 2: $119 (previously $114)
  • Tier 3: $134 (previously $124)
  • Tier 4: $149 (previously $139)
  • Tier 5: $159 (previously $154)
  • Tier 6: $164, NEW tier

Tier 1 has not changed while the highest price hike was $10 (tier 3 and 4). Additionally, a new tier has also been announced.

If you want to park hop while at Disneyland Resort, expect to pay a bit more – just like at Disney World. Again, pricing will vary a bit based on when you go.

  • Tier 1: $164 (previously $159)
  • Tier 2: $179 (previously $169)
  • Tier 3: $194 (previously $179)
  • Tier 4: $209 (previously $194)
  • Tier 5: $219 (previously $209)
  • Tier 6: $224, NEW tier

Park hopper tickets see a jump of about $15 for most tiers.

Parking Increases

Not only has theme park tickets increased, but it will also cost extra to park at Disneyland Resort. The cost to park has now jumped to $30 from $25.

If you plan to add Genie+ or ILLS to skip the line, your day at Disneyland is about to get more expensive!

Kat, I agree we should all be grateful for what we have, especially since the are others that are less fortunate.

This should also apply to Disney management that has become excessively greedy.

I don't think any of us would have a problem with Disney raising proces to keep up with inflation or maybe even a bit more. However, ticket prices rose at four times the rate of inflation and the latest Genie +, LL was just additional bonuses on top of that.

That's excessive. It's not supporting Walt's vision that many people bought into (DVC members that currently represent about 10% of Disney Assets without having any voting power).

It appears that the recent bad changes occurred when Chepak took over. Not only is it destroying Walt's vision, it risks the value of the DVC members ownership, since fewer people will be visiting the parks due to extreme pricing.

Loyal Disneyites voice their concern to keep things in balance, in hopes of keeping Disney great going forward, since many of us experienced this "magic" the past.

People love to complain about everything. Disneyland is a luxury & there is a way to travel for much less. We are middle class, lower middle class in California. We’ve definitely enjoyed the park spending nearly nothing inside. It’s tough for families traveling and I have empathy for those expenses. I am not going to hate on Disney raising prices. Prices for everything are increasing. Groceries, gas, utilities. Everything. Wages are increasing as well. Disney has to pay these added costs. They aren’t immune. Supply chains are locked up. It’s not a surprise prices were raised. It’s all good. A billion people on earth don’t have access to clean water. Not going to bitch about vacation costs. Especially when people have voted for bills and politicians that raise costs… but expect those costs never to get passed down to them. I work in accounting. Economics should be taught in schools early. No one seems to expect inflation even though it’s just beginning with the huge budgets and deficits being passed. Bring your own lunch, or don’t go. Don’t sit around and complain. Especially now, just be happy if you & your family are healthy.

Best part is, you don't get anything new for all the extra money! Oh yeah- and Disney would still be making billions every year without the increases. This is just how the mouse operates now- the happiest place on Earth, but only if you can afford it. Still waiting for the mouse to realize that they can build a whole new, massive, theme park system in the NY-metro area, and not lose any money, and very few patrons- the patrons just get spread out more, and are able to actually afford to visit!
