Are Disneyland ticket prices going up?
IT was reported that Disneyland ticket prices are soaring with crowds flocking to the park post-pandemic.
Prices are rising a significant percentage, particularly for the most popular days of the year like Christmas and New Year's Eve.
Are Disneyland ticket prices going up?
Daily ticket prices for Disneyland parks are jumping from 3 per cent to 8 per cent according to the Los Angeles Times.
Standard parking rates are going up as much as 20 per cent.
Ticket prices operate on a six-tier system according to time and day of the year.
Prices for single-day, one-park-per-day tickets are as follows:
- Tier 1: $104 adult, $98 child.
- Tier 2: $119 adult, $113 child.

- Tier 4: $149 adult, $141 child.
- Tier 5: $159 adult, $150 child.
- Tier 6: $164 adult, $TBD child (Tier 6 is a new addition as of October 25, 2021)
Adults are anyone age 10 and over, child tickets are for ages 3-9, and anyone under age 3 is admitted free.
Regular prices for multiday one-park-per-day tickets as of October 25, 2021 are:
- Two days: $255 adult, $235 child.
- Three days: $330 adult, $310 child.
- Four days: $360 adult, $340 child.
- Five days: $380 adult, $360 child.
Earlier this month, Disneyland officially announced a replacement for its popular annual passport.
Ranging from $399 to $1,399, the new Magic Key system will offer guests the same perks of the annual pass, which includes park reservations throughout the year.
Those who purchase a Magic Key pass within the first two months will receive a special charter member gift package (with a pen, magnet, map, lanyard, and more) delivered to their home.
What is the new Disney Genie+ pass?
Disney World has replaced their Fast Pass scheme with a new "Disney Genie+" service.
The popular queue skip passes, which also included the Max Pass, are being scrapped later this year.
Instead, guests can use the Disney Genie+ service to "prebook" queue slots through the Lightning Lane entrance which lets visitors skip the normal queue.
A free Disney Genie app is being launched, with the new service including:
- Personalized itinerary planning
- Forecasted future wait times for attractions
- Virtual assistant
- Mobile ordering
- Restaurant wait list, check-in, and reservations
- Virtual queues (available at certain attractions)
However, Disney Genie+, which will cost guests, will include access to the Lightning Lanes, yet to be revealed.
The new service will cost $15 per day at Disney World and $20 per day at Disneyland in California.
How can I skip the queue at Disneyland?
A mom has revealed how you can always skip the long queues at the theme park.
Samantha Hicks, who runs an interiors account Our Victorian Home, posted about the sneaky method on her Instagram.
She wrote: “We found out today about the ‘baby switch’. Did you know you can skip the queue if one of you has to stay with the baby?”
Most of her followers said they had never heard of the clever trick.
The Walt Disney website explains in more detail how it works.
Also called the Rider Switch, they say: “If a child does not meet the height requirement or a Guest does not wish to board a particular attraction, no problem!
“With Rider Switch, one adult can wait with the non-rider (or riders) while the rest of the party enjoys the attraction.
“When the other adult returns, they can supervise the non-riding Guests, and the waiting adult can board the attraction without having to wait in the regular line again.”
Guests just need to check with staff that the ride offers the switching method, who will then give a Ride Switch entitlement.
Other guests have shared their top tips on how to avoid long queues.
TikTok user feedmeimei explained in a video: “Some rides have a Buddy Pass system where if you have a party of 1-2, you ask for a Buddy Pass and you can go to a much shorter line.”
Another person said choosing the right time for each ride means you can avoid any queues too – they explained that guests should head to Splash Mountain, Haunted Mansion or the Pirates of the Caribbean ride after 9:30pm, as there will be no queues.
