Disneyland has just announced an increase to ticket prices that has the internet all a buzz.
The increases to the single and multi day tickets are not unreasonable when you consider the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge this year. The largest price increases came to the annual passholders.
The premier pass is the one that offers access to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, and has the biggest jump in price.
The law of supply and demand. There's no rent control on Disneyland tickets.— ✨Willie the Giant✨ (@jumbo_willie) January 6, 2019
It happens every time there is an increase, fans are up in arms saying they’ll never visit again, but sometimes you have to put things in to perspective like this Twitter fan.
I saw that the prices of Disneyland’s Signature Plus APs went up to $1400. Doing the math, if I bought just single tickets this year based on the amount of my visits to the Parks last year, it will cost me $19,000.— MAV3RICK (@RadioMaverick) January 6, 2019
It is clear that the increase is meant to curb the crowds they anticipate will visit for Galaxy’s Edge. The over zealous Star Wars fans will not be discouraged by a price increase, in fact I know many who would pay extra for the opportuity to visit with lower crowds – myself included. I suspect this increase is to encourage more locals to purchase the tickets with blackout dates – this way Disney can control the crowd levels to some extent.
What do you think of the increases? Will it deter you from visiting Disneyland?
