Disneyland Ticket Prices and AP Prices rise, with more changes on the horizon

2/11/2018 9:04:16 PM


It's that time of year again... Disneyland increased ticket prices and Annual Pass prices this morning. Walt Disney World increased their pricing as well.    The Orange County Register has a great report on the changes, and the structure of Disneyland ticket pricing.  Disneyland is still charging for one day tickets based on seasonal crowd projections, with Value, Regular and Peak pricing. While Value pricing actually stayed the same or went DOWN, Regular and Peak pricing went up and AP Prices rose as much as 18%.  

Ticket type        2017 price      2018 price   

Value: 1-day, 1-park $97 $97

Value: 1-day parkhopper $157 $147

Regular: 1-day, 1-park $110 $117

Regular: 1-day parkhopper         $165  $167

Peak: 1-day, 1 park $124 $135

Peak 1-day parkhopper $174 $185

Signature Plus Annual Passport $1049 $1149

Signature Annual Passport $849 $999

Deluxe Annual Passport $619 $729

So Cal Annual Passport 

(on hiatus – only renewals) $469 $549

Select Annual Passport $339 $369

For Annual Passholders, another change is the elimination of the Renewal discount, and an increase in the down payment for those that choose to do monthly payment plans instead of paying in full (which is the case for the majority of AP Holders). 

Disneyland has been struggling with increased crowds and a huge increase in the number of Annual Passholders over the last 10 years.  With Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opening in 2019, Disney Spokeswoman Suzy Brown told the Register that changes and reforms are imminent.  Rumors are swirling amongst the Disney community about the elimination of the payment plan entirely, or perhaps restricting access to Disneyland Park (but not DCA) during select times  as is the case for the Cast Member Main Entrance Pass used to sign in Guests.  The Cast Member pass has seen an increase in blockout dates for Disneyland Park as crowds have risen.  

While Multi Day ticket prices did not change, they are expected to change later in 2018, as is custom when 2019 Vacation Packages are released.  

Will you still renew your pass or plan your vacation? What do you think is the solution for the increased crowds at the Resort?
