    Disneyland raises prices for most daily admission tickets and all annual passes
    • October 11, 2023

    Disneyland raised prices nearly across the board effective today, Oct. 11, for every type of ticket except the most basic day pass, which will remain $104 per day. The highest daily admission price, usually charged on the busiest days, increased 8.4%, from $179 to $194, for a one-park, one-day pass.

    Prices also went up for Magic Key annual passes, parking and Genie+ cut-the-line benefits.

    “We are constantly adding new, innovative attractions and entertainment to our parks and, with our broad array of pricing options, the value of a theme park visit is reflected in the unique experiences that only Disney can offer,” Disney wrote in a published statement about the increases.

    The Disneyland Resort typically hikes its prices about once per year. Park-goers who are willing to pay the increases tend to hope that the higher cost will reduce overcrowding.

    “Going up?” Disneyland expert Dusty Sage, who runs the popular MiceChat blog, said. “While many ticket tiers are going up as much as 16%, the lowest cost $104 one-day/one-park base ticket remains the same as it has been since 2019, and with more dates at that lower price.”

    Sage added that “Disney has become very clever about taking the sting out of price increases. This year’s round of ticket inflation is tempered by a new $50 child’s ticket offer.”

    The Anaheim resort officials recently unveiled a discounted child’s ticket offer for kids ages 3-9. It’s only good for visits between Jan. 8 and March 10, 2024. Starting at $50, discounted tickets can be purchased beginning Oct. 24.

    Day passes

    Price hikes on regular daily tickets and multiday passes vary from $5 to $65, depending on the offering. This represents increases from 3.9% to 15.7%

    Single-day tickets for one park are priced according to their expected popularity, with seven different pricing levels.
    The cost of a single-day ticket remains at $104 for the least-busy weekdays, but all others will cost visitors more.
    With the increase, daily admission prices will be $104, $119, $134, $154, $169, $184 or $194, depending on the day.

    Magic Key annual passes

    There are four levels of annual pass, depending on blackout dates and perks. The new price structure increases from 3.1% for the priciest Inspire pass to 21.5% of the midlevel Enchant pass.

    Inspire pass: $1,649, up $50
    Believe pass: $1,249, up $150
    Enchant pass: $849, up $150
    Imagine pass: $499, up $50


    It will now set you back $35 to park a passenger car at the theme parks, up $5 for most types of parking. Most hotel parking also went up $5.

    Downtown Disney is the only parking cost that remains unchanged, at $10 for the first hour to a maximum of $66 for the day, without validation.

    Other changes

    Genie+ cut-the-line day passes now cost $30, up from $25, when bought in advance. Day-of passes vary in cost. Two more rides — Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway and The Little Mermaid — will be added to the plan.

    The Park Hopper add-on, which allows visitors to visit both parks in the same day, increased for multi-day passes, up $5 to $15 depending on the number of days. The single-day park-hopper addition remains $65, with no price increase, so park-hopper tickets will run $169-$259 per day.

    “A family of four visiting Disneyland during the busy Christmas season will pay $1,156 for tickets, park-hopping access and front-of-the-line Genie+ access,” Sage said. “Call it “Funflation.”
