Disneyland Ticket Prices Have Increased To Over $200 A Day For The First Time Ever

Disneyland in California has once again hiked up its ticket prices and has pushed single-day passes past the $200 mark for the first time ever.

According to CNN, these record-breaking price increases are reportedly part of a new five-tiered ticket pricing system which is all based on guest demand depending on the day of the week, the season, or whether it's a major holiday.

The original pricing system, which was introduced over a year ago, only had three tiers.

Now, under this new system, a one-day ticket to Disneyland will cost guests anywhere from $104 on low-demand days (such as a weekday in March) up to $209 for a solo "hopper" ticket, which lets you visit both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park in one day.

The highest prices apply to peak tourists dates, like weekends and major holidays.

If you want a Select Pass, the most affordable annual pass option, it'll cost you $419 — up from $399.

The most expensive pass, the Premier Pass, was once $1,949 but now has a price tag of $2,199.

A full day's visit at Disneyland (which spans 85 acres) usually lasts about 15 hours. The company has said these new admission prices are comparable to the average price for a three-hour sporting event.

A Disney spokesperson said the five-tiered pricing system is meant to preserve the guest experience at its parks.

It's also meant to help spread attendance more evenly throughout the course of the year.

"A visit to our parks is the best value in entertainment bar none, and we offer flexible ticket choices to enable families to choose what's best for them," the spokesperson told CNN.
