Disneyland prices to increase by up to 25 percent ahead of Star Wars-themed expansion

LOS ANGELES — Prices for daily tickets, parking and annual passes have been raised up to 25 percent at Disneyland Resort ahead of the scheduled opening of a Star Wars-themed expansion.

Less than a year ago, the resort increased prices by up to 18 percent. Now, the cheapest daily ticket will cost more than $100.

The Los Angeles Times reports price increases in recent years have not thinned the throngs at Disneyland and nearby California Adventure Park.

More visitors are expected for this summer's opening of the expansion called "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge."

Spokeswoman Liz Jaeger says the resort offers a variety of tickets while helping manage demand and spread visitation.

Disney representatives said more days would be blocked out for most annual passes compared to last year but didn't provide more specifics.
