Disneyland traditionally raises ticket prices every year, usually around January or February, and this year is no exception. Even with all the construction going on in both parks and Star Wars - Galaxy's Edge still over a year away from completion, Disneyland's attendance has stayed steady and so it appears this is the latest move to try and deter massive crowds from the gates.
Multi-day tickets saw an increase, but in an interesting way. The smallest increase was on 3-Day tickets at about $10 per ticket while 4- and 5-Day passes, though still much cheaper per day, went up by $15 or more. That's an unusual price hike since Disney Parks usually raise ticket prices less as the number of days spent at a resort go up.
Annual Passholders will not be particularly pleased, either. Upper level passes such as the Signature and Signature Plus saw increases of just $150 and $100 respectively, but that does mean that the Signature Pass is now just under $1000. Lower level passes also were raised by $90-$110 which leaves the cheapest general pass, the Deluxe, at over $700. Annual Passholders make up a huge portion of park guests and, while loyal to Disneyland and a source of regular income, tend to fill up the parks more than they expect. Ticket prices have been raised on a regular basis but the numbers of APs has reportedly quadrupled over the last 20 years despite price and benefit changes. It's unlikely Disneyland will cap the number of APs given how much regular cash flow they receive but they reportedly have been considering for years eliminating the monthly payment option which many guests rely on to afford their yearly passes. There is no indication that this will be implemented anytime soon.
For a complete list of current ticket prices, visit our Park Info page. As I mentioned at the top, Disneyland ticket prices go up regularly every year around this time so the best way to lock in lower ticket prices for your trip, even if traveling late in the year, is to buy them early. For example, if you are planning a trip for sometime in the summer of 2019, buy your tickets in January of that year before they raise prices and you will end up spending less.
