Disneyland raises ticket prices

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ticket prices for Disneyland and Disney California Adventure increased an average of 8% on October 11, Disneyland officials confirmed.

Disneyland has also introduced a new “Tier 0” one-day ticket that will cost $104 per day and will be valid on less crowded days of the year. The price of a day ticket now ranges from $104 to $179 depending on the day. The most expensive 1-day Park Hopper ticket is now priced at $244 per day.

The last time Disneyland raised ticket prices was in October 2021. All ticket price increases take effect on Tuesday.

“Disneyland Resort is always planning the next new idea, attraction and story,” a Disneyland official said in a statement. “Our tiered ticketing structure gives customers different options to experience this magic throughout the year, including our lowest price – which hasn’t changed since 2019.”

Disneyland also announced that the price of Genie+ will increase starting October 11. Genie+ replaced Disneyland’s FastPass program last year and allows guests to access Lightning Lane and bypass the traditional line for select attractions.

Genie+ will go from $20 to $25 per day when purchased in advance. If you wait to be at the park to buy, Genie+ pricing will now vary depending on the date.

Disneyland announced last week that the Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction at Disneyland will open Jan. 27, Disneyland announced Thursday.

The attraction is part of an updated Mickey’s Toontown slated to open in the spring of 2023, but Disney has announced the new Mickey and Minnie attraction will open early as part of the launch of Disney 100, a 100th anniversary celebration of Walt Disney Co. .

The ride opened at Walt Disney World in 2020 and was the first ride at a Disney park featuring Mickey and Friends. Based on the recent Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts, the attraction follows Mickey and Minnie as they leisurely drive to a picnic when a runaway railroad takes guests on a “swirling ride through a world where the rules of physics don’t apply.”

The theme park also revealed an updated look for Sleeping Beauty’s castle. The princess’ castle will feature elegant platinum decorations for the “Disney100” celebration as well as new fountains.

At Disney California Adventure Park, “World of Color – One,” an all-new show that celebrates “storytelling” over the past 100 years.

The “Magic Happens” parade will return to Disneyland after disappearing when the parks were closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
