Some shakeups for tickets at the Happiest Place on Earth landed this morning. Despite still not offering their full lineup of entertainment and offerings from before the pandemic, Disneyland announced increased ticket prices and the discontinuation of their no-blackout date Magic Key annual ticket.

Let’s dive into the details.

Disneyland Ticket Price Increases

Disneyland announced ticket price increases for their single day tickets. While the lowest price tier, used for the least busy days of the year, remains the same, all other tiers saw $5-$15 increases, and a new tier was added for the busiest days, representing a $10-$15 increase over the previous top ticket price.

One Day, One Park

Tier 1: $104 (same price)
Tier 2: $119 (old price: $114)
Tier 3: $134 (old price: $124)
Tier 4: $149 (old price: $139)
Tier 5: $159 (old price: $154)
Tier 6: $164 (new tier)

One Day Park Hopper

Tier 1: $164 (old price: $159)
Tier 2: $179 (old price: $169)
Tier 3: $194 (old price: $179)
Tier 4: $209 (old price: $194)
Tier 5: $219 (old price: $209)
Tier 6: $224 (new tier)

Parking has also increase in price from $25/day to $30/day.

Dream Magic Key “Sells Out”

In a new development, Disneyland has sold out of its most expensive Magic Key tier. The Magic Key is Disneyland’s new Annual Pass program that requires reservations. The Dream Key cost $1399, had no blackout dates, and included 6 park reservations. Disneyland has been struggling to serve their new Magic Keyholders, as reservations have been limited and hard to come by. For example, most of the days for the rest of the year are already unavailable for Magic Keyholders. With the old Annual Passholder program, you could spontaneously visit the parks whenever you wanted with the top tier. With the new program, you could spend almost $1400 and not be able to use the ticket if you don’t plan your visits at least 60 days ahead of time. I’ve personally seen a lot of consternation from Magic Keyholders online about this new limitation. It’s unclear if the Dream Key will go back on sale, but as limited as park reservations are, it’s clear that Disneyland needs to do some adjustments to be able to serve their most dedicated repeat customers.
