Disney Raises Park Prices, Weighs Plan for Fixed-Date Ticketing

The Disneyland resort raised prices over the weekend, several months before the park plans to unveil a remake of its boardwalk-themed area at the California Adventure Park.

A one-day, one-park adult ticket remains 97 US dollars for low-demand days, such as weekdays in May, while a ticket for regular demand days is 117 USA dollars, up from 110 USA dollars.

Disney tickets broke the $100 mark three years ago, when single-day Magic Kingdom prices were upped $4, from $99 to $105. "Regular" tickets will be $114 for adults and $108 for children.

Beginning on Sunday, Magic Kingdom "value" days will cost $109 for an adult and $103 for children. On regular and peak days, Disney is raising the price of Park Hoppers by less than it is one-day, one-park tickets, suggesting that Disney would really rather you hop over to California Adventure for part of your day at Disneyland than crowding just the one park all day.

As for annual passes, the least-expensive pass costs 729 USA dollars, up from 619 US dollars.

Liverpool defeat Southampton and Twitter reacts to Reds win
Southampton faced the unenviable task of having a must-win game against Liverpool following the results across the weekend. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg had the hosts' best chance for an instant reply when he fired too close to Karius at the back post.

At Disneyland, "regular", one-day, one-park tickets will be $117, a $7 increase.

Prices for Florida residents have also changed, as reflected on the park's website. A value ticket is $102, while a peak ticket costs $122, up from $119.

The company says they hope the price hike will prevent overcrowding at the theme parks. A ticket during "peak" periods will cost $135, an $11 increase. And the Silver pass with block out dates during Christmas, spring break, and the summer costs $439, up from $419. Managers of the company have been struggling for years to balance their desire to keep the parks full against the reality that they are crowded on a daily basis.

Details on the fixed-date tickets created to control attendance will be released in advance of next year's opening of Star Wars Lands.
