A family trip to Disneyland is about to set you back a lot more money. According to CBS News, as of Jan. 6, the recent price hike will make the least expensive daily pass to the park cost more than $100 per person. The price surge comes ahead of the highly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge expansion, which is set to open Summer 2019 in California. The new price increase will also affect annual passes and parking. This of course isn't the first time the park has increased ticket prices. Less than a year ago, ticket prices jumped by 18 percent. Although prices vary by date, a one-day, one-park ticket will set parents back $104 on a slow weekday in February, for example. But on a peak park day? Expect to pay something in the $149 range.
Despite the recent price hike, there are still opportunities to save on park visits if you're willing to research promotion offers. This current deal, for example, makes it possible to visit the Disneyland Resort for as little as $70 per day with the purchase of a 3-day, One Park per day ticket. "We continue to provide our guests with a variety of ticket offerings to meet their needs, while helping us to spread visitation, better manage demand and deliver a great experience," notes Liz Jaeger, Disneyland Resort spokesperson.
