Asked about the price changes, a park representative issued this statement which doesn't actually tell you anything: "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 is hiking up its ticket prices ahead of the opening of the new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land this summer.

Based on the ever-popular Star Wars franchise, Galaxy's Edge will include a number of rides inspired by the galaxy far, far away like Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Peak demand days will go from $135 to $149.

Overall, ticket prices increased an average of 8%, the Orange County Register reports, and since 2000, the price of admission to Disneyland has more than tripled.

From now on, low-demand day prices will be $104. And on peak-demand days? Parking and annual passes also went up. Disneyland's cheapest annual pass now costs $399, up from $369.

Disney representatives said more days would be blocked out for most annual passes compared to previous year but didn't provide more specifics. "Disney has invested heavily in promoting itself as a lifestyle brand, and its dedicated fans won't abandon it over these price increases". In fact, 211 days are blocked for the next 12 months.

The Deluxe Pass and Premier Pass have also increased.

The park is now holding a limited-time offer for patrons both in California and in other states.

"The Happiest Place on Earth" wasn't exactly cheap before, but a ticket to the Disneyland theme park just became even more expensive.
