Disneyland announced today its plans to raise prices on all of its Annual Passports and some of its single and multi-day ticket options. The lowest-priced single day one park and park hopper passes remain the same.

The one-park ticket prices for Disneyland are the same Disney California Adventure.

According to the OC Register, the Disneyland Resort reported a 3% increase on its top tier daily single park admission ticket, a 5% increase on the park hopper option, and an increase as high as 13% on its annual passes. Disneyland is also replacing its three-tier pricing system of “value,” “regular,” and “peak” tickets with a new five-tier system based on levels of park attendance.

Tier 1 will be enacted on the slowest days, the price remaining at $104. Tier 5 will be used for the busiest days, the price jumping 3% from $149 to $154. The new tier 2 tickets cost #114–11% less than the old “regular” tickets–and the new tier 4 tickets cost $139–8% more than the former “regular” price. Tier 3 stands in the middle with a cost of $124.

The peak price for a Disneyland park ticket has increased by over 300% in the past 20 years and over 5,000% since its opening in 1955. In 2000, the ticket price on peak days sat at $43. Disneyland switched to the demand-based pricing system back in 2016.
