LOS ANGELES (KTLA)-
Just days ahead of Memorial Day weekend and the unofficial start of summer, Disneyland on Sunday quietly raised its ticket prices and suspended new sales of one of its popular annual passes.
Disneyland also boosted the cost of its annual passes while also suspending sales of its popular Southern California annual pass, which allowed pass holders into both parks on Sundays. Only those who have the pass already will be able to renew it at its new increased price of $379.
New prices posted to theme park’s website showed that a one-day, one-park ticket to Disneyland or California Adventures will now cost visitors ages 10 and up $96, an increase of $4. A one-day park hopper pass, which grants access to both Disneyland and California Adventures, costs $150, up $13 from the previous price.
Prices for the Deluxe annual pass, which can be used on Saturday and Sundays, now cost $519. The most expensive option, the Premium annual pass, has no blockout days and includes the cost of parking, and can be purchased for $699.
The cost of parking also went up, with a single day of parking costing $17 for cars and motorcycles.
In a departure from previous years, Disneyland did not give any advance warning before the price increase went into effect.
