Big Disneyland Ticket Increase -Prices Jump To Light Speed For 2019
January 6, 2019

"The dramatic increase in price reflects the expected demand for the resort when Star Wars land opens later this year. Adding Maxpass will cost an additional $100 for all passes except Signature Plus (a $25 increase over 2018). Only the Signature Plus pass will have full availability to Disneyland for the entire year. The lower level passes (all but Signature Plus) will have two sets of block-out calendars, one for Disneyland and one for California Adventure. Parking jumps $5 to $25 per day. The high water mark for one-day parkhopper tickets is now $199."

MousePlanet on Price Increases

"It also comes as Disney posts another strong year of attendance figures, with Disneyland resort attendance up four percent, and hotel occupancy up one percent compared to the prior year. All previous attendance records are likely to go out the window when Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens this summer, and we've already begun to see upwards pressure on hotel prices fueled by both Galaxy's Edge and this summer's D23 Expo."

Star Tours Single Rider

"Some of you may really like this news item . . . but the cast members we spoke with about it weren’t happy about it at all.  Star Tours has added Single Rider. Unfortunately, it’s confusing and labor intensive. You enter Single Rider through the Star Trader shop at the exit of the attraction."
