Disneyland Prices Get Massive Increase Prior To Star Wars Expansion


If you're planning on visiting Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge area at Disneyland in California? You're going to have to reassess your budget.

Before Disneyland lets visitors visit a galaxy that's far, far away, Disneyland is raising ticket prices dramatically.

According to the The Los Angeles Times, the least expensive option for a day pass to Disneyland will now be over $100. The rates for annual passes and daily parking are also increasing, as much as 25%.

The Star Wars themed expansion is scheduled to open this summer, covering 14 acres of the park in a fully immersive sci-fi experience. It includes two new attractions: "Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run," in which guests can try their hand at piloting Han Solo's iconic spaceship, and "Rise of the Resistance," which puts riders on a Star Destroyer and lets them battle the First Order. The budget for Galaxy's Edge is said to be roughly $1 billion, but park attendance is expected to skyrocket when it opens, and ticket prices are rising accordingly.

The last price hike for Disneyland tickets was 18% and occurred less than a year ago. However, ticket sales have still been going strong, with crowd control and wait times inside the park remaining ongoing concerns.

For those who are ready to pay the price and brave the lines, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, the first attraction from the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge land, is scheduled to open at Disneyland during the summer of 2019, and at Orlando's Walt Disney World the following fall.
