It just got more expensive to visit Disneyland on the weekends and holidays. Disneyland has introduced demand-based ticket pricing for both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure’s single day tickets.
The system allows Disneyland to tier it’s 1-day, and 1-day park hopper tickets based on projected park demand and attendance levels. The pricing structure will be broken in to three tiers, the Value, which will be Monday through Thursday, the Regular, which will include Friday through Sundays, and Peak which will encompass holidays and special events. A calendar for each tiered ticket and when they will be in effect can be viewed on Disneyland’s website
The new breakdown (which goes into effect February 28, 2016) for 1-day, and 1-day park hopper tickets will be:
- Adult: $95 for a 1-day 1-park, and $155 for a 1-day park hopper
- Child: $89 for a 1-day 1-park, and $149 for a 1-day park hopper
- Adult: $105 for a 1-day 1-park, and $160 for a 1-day park hopper
- Child: $99 for a 1-day 1-park, and $154 for a 1-day park hopper
- Adult: $119 for a 1-day 1-park, and $169 for a 1-day park hopper
- Child: $113 for a 1-day 1-park, and $163 for a 1-day park hopper
The Value tiered pricing actually reflects a reduction in prices. Prior to the changes the standard Adult price was $99 for a 1-day 1-park, now it will be $95 for most days Monday through Thursday. The Child pricing also decreased from $93 to $89 in the Value category. However, for the Peak category the Adult ticket reflects a $20 increase for a 1-day 1-park, and a $14 increase for the park hopper.
Currently the Disneyland demand pricing structure only affects the single day tickets and has yet to be applied to the multi-day tickets. Disney cities increasing demand during peak periods for the changes which will also effect Walt Disney World. Disneyland last increased their admission prices on daily tickets in February 2015, and restructured and increased the cost of Annual Passports in October 2015.
