Effective on Sunday, Walt Disney World in Florida and California Disneyland would get more expensive, as prices on single-day tickets, annual passes and parkings were all going up.
Single-day tickets to the Disney World now run 107 U.S., 115 U.S. or 124 U.S. dollars -- depending on the season -- up from 105, 110 or 124 U.S. dollars before.
For California Disneyland, single-day tickets cost 97, 110 or 124 U.S. dollars, up from 95, 105 or 119 U.S. dollars.
"Our pricing provides guests a range of options that allow us to better manage demand to maximize the guest experience and is reflective of the distinctly Disney offerings at all of our parks," Suzi Brown, director of media relations and external communications at the park, stated in the price hike announcement. However, many people were not happy with the price hike.
"Disneyland announced increase on ticket prices, AGAIN. Soon I'll have to sell my car to be able to afford to go there," Yuti Scharan, a Los Angeles resident twitted Saturday.
"To pay so much to be able to go to Disneyland, is it really the happiest place to be?" Los Angeles resident Marquis posted on twitter as well.
On the other hand, a Disney spokesperson said the price was fair enough. "If you compare our pricing to other forms of family entertainment, from football games to golf events to ski passes, major concerts, we offer a great value for the money. Guests can enjoy a full day of entertainment, up to 16 hours, when at Disney Parks," the spokesperson said.
The last time Disney parks increased prices were Feb. 28, 2016.
