My family has had Disneyland season passes for the last three years, but no more. We had passes for my wife, myself, and our daughter who will be turning 7 this summer. Our twin 3 year old boys have not been back since turning 3 since we would have to pay nearly full price to push them in a stroller most of the day. Now, ticket prices are going up again. From the LA Times:
Walt Disney Co. raised entry prices to its theme parks in California and Florida, effective Sunday.
A single-day ticket to either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim for visitors 10 or older now costs $92, up from $87 — a jump of nearly 6%.
The cost of the day pass has risen 28% since early 2010, when it was $72. Prices were previously raised in August 2010, June 2011 and May 2012.
“Like any business, we evaluate and adjust our pricing based on a variety of factors,” Burbank-based Disney said in a statement. The price of a ticket for a child age 3 to 9 increased to $86 from $81. And the price of parking at the Anaheim property is now $16, an uptick of $1.
The prices of annual tickets went up too. The Deluxe Annual Passport, which allows admission to both Anaheim parks 315 days of the year, now costs $499 — up from $469. The Premium Annual Passport, which has no blackout dates, now costs $669, an increase of $20…
Compare that to Knott’s Berry Farm where a season pass costs a mere $88 for a basic level. The choice is no undeniably clear. Our Disneyland passes expire at the end of July and that is it. We are done with Disneyland and off to Knott’s.
