ANAHEIM (LA Times) — It just got more expensive to visit the Happiest Place on Earth. Again.
Walt Disney Co. raised entry prices to its theme parks in California and Florida, effective Sunday.
A single-day ticket to either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim for visitors 10 or older now costs $92, up from $87 — a jump of nearly 6%.
The cost of the day pass has risen 28% since early 2010, when it was $72. Prices were previously raised in August 2010, June 2011 and May 2012.
“Like any business, we evaluate and adjust our pricing based on a variety of factors,” Burbank-based Disney said in a statement. The price of a ticket for a child age 3 to 9 increased to $86 from $81. And the price of parking at the Anaheim property is now $16, an uptick of $1.
The prices of annual tickets went up too. The Deluxe Annual Passport, which allows admission to both Anaheim parks 315 days of the year, now costs $499 — up from $469. The Premium Annual Passport, which has no blackout dates, now costs $669, an increase of $20.
Disney is offering discounts of up to $40 to annual passholders who renew before their tickets expire. In some cases, the discounts offset the price hikes.
