Disneyland ticket prices go up; new 6th tier introduced
Heading to the "happiest place on Earth" is getting a bit more expensive.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) -- Daily ticket prices at Disneyland and California Adventure Park are going up, and if you're thinking of visiting on days like Christmas and New Year's Eve, it's going to cost you.

The Disneyland Resort is adding a new and more expensive tier to the ticket-buying process for its Anaheim theme parks.

The sixth tier calls for $164 for a one-day visit to a park on the most in-demand days of the year, including select weekends, holidays and spring break. Standard daily parking rates are now $30 from the previous $25. Self-parking at the hotels went from $25 to $40.

All ticket prices go into effect on Monday.

The last time the parks raised its prices was before they closed due to the pandemic. The resort's starting price for a single-day, single-park ticket remained unchanged since 2019 at $104, but the new sixth tier will help offer a variety of ticket prices that meet different budgets, officials said.
