Disneyland is a place where dreams come true, but those dreams are now seeing a price hike.
Disney announced over the weekend that ticket prices for Disneyland and California Adventure will go up by $5. That translates to $92 for a one-day adult ticket, and $87 for a one-day child's ticket. Prices at Disney World also went up.
It's not just the one day passes that have been effected either. Disney says that those who prefer to buy annual passes will see the prices of those tickets go up by a similar amount.
So, what was the cause of the increase? Disney isn't immediately saying. The company trotted out the usual line that the ticket price increase was spurred by a variety of factors. Oh, but of course, Disney wants you to know that $92 is still a fabulous value for the wide variety of attractions that the parks offer visitors.
To be honest, I have to agree. Disney's theme parks may be lacking in quality roller coasters, but the unique Disney experience is almost always worth the money. Besides, the kids (and adults) still love Mickey Mouse and the other characters that have emerged from Disney's history.[h/t: AP]
