On Sunday morning, the world woke up to increases in ticket pricing at Walt Disney World just as expected, but it happened on the other coast as well. Yes, Disneyland has gone along with the expected price increase on a number of daily tickets to the parks as well as their annual passes. California residents and tourists shouldn’t be surprised as this has become a yearly thing, and well, there is a lot going on in the next two years.
There are a large number of projects happening at Walt Disney World across four parks and the major roadways. Over in California, there may be less space for them to work on, but that doesn’t mean they are any less busy than in Florida.
Later this year, Pixar Fest will begin at the Disneyland Resort which will include the transformation of Paradise Pier to Pixar Pier in Disney California Adventure park, as reported by My Mickey Vacation Travel. We can’t forget that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is also set to open in Disneyland park sometime in 2019.
There is also the brand new Four Diamond hotel being built on Disneyland property and it is set to open in 2021. All of this is going to take money, and that is why ticket prices will continue to increase.
