Disneyland imposes annual ticket price hike

Peak season tickets - generally for spring break, summer and Christmas break - will cost $119, up from $114.

A visit on a Regular day will be $110, while a Peak day will cost $124, both up $5.

Annual-pass prices will also increase Sunday.

A one-day visit during the least-popular value days will cost $99, up from $97. The Platinum Plus pass - which grants pass holders access to Disney World's water parks in addition to its four theme parks - will be $869, up $40.

Also starting Sunday: Visitors buying tickets online or on their phones can save $20 on Magic Your Way bundles from three to 10 days.

As both the Orlando Sentinel in Florida and Orange County Register in Southern California are reporting, prices for single-day admission tickets and Annual Passports alike will increase at the Disney resorts on both coasts.

On Feb. 10, 2017, the Walt Disney Company announced that it will acquire, through one of its subsidiaries, 90% of Kingdom Holding Company's shares in Euro Disney S.C.A., the company that controls the Disneyland Paris Resort, at a price of €2 per share, increasing its ownership interest in Euro Disney to 85.7%.

"Our pricing provides guests a range of options that allow us to better manage demand to maximize the guest experience and is reflective of the distinctly Disney offerings at all of our parks", said Suzi Brown, a Disneyland spokeswoman.

The price of preferred parking, an option added past year, will rise to $40 instead of $35.

In 2015, Disneyland posted an all-time record with 18.2 million visitors, an increase of 1.5 million from the previous year, according to the Themed Entertainment Association, an industry group that tracks theme park attendance. During "regular" time, park visitors will pay $5 more with prices jumping from $115 for adults to $109 for children.
