Disneyland Hikes Ticket Prices

The Disneyland Resort has announced the 2013 theme park ticket price increases. The increases, although not as significant as last year's huge increases, can still be painful for families and Disneyland fans alike.

Last year, the Disneyland Resort pointed to the relaunch of Disney California Adventure and the grand opening of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street to justify the massive 2012 increases. However, the Disneyland Resort hasn't changed much for 2013, and most of what continues to draw guests into the theme parks opened nearly a year ago. New at Disneyland for 2013 includes the opening of the princess meet-and-greet expansion of Fantasyland, Fantasy Faire and the opening of a new stage show, Mickey and the Magical Map.

The majority of the increases are minor, with the largest of the ticket price increases being $10. Annual Passports went up by as much as $30, and the big hit this year is for the Premier pass at $130! The Premier pass allows for entry at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts.

Disney made the ticket price increase announcement on Saturday, June 1 and the increases go into effect TOMORROW JUNE 2, 2013!
