Disneyland Raises Ticket Prices To $92; No More For My Family Of Five

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.
