Disneyland Raises Prices to $96 a Person

"Like any business, we periodically evaluate our pricing and make adjustments based on a variety of factors," said Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown.

As of today it will cost visitors to Disneyland Resort an additional $4 per person to get in, according to the Orange County Register. That raises admission from $92 to $96 per person. The increase comes at a time when attendance is surging, in part because of the Cars Land attraction, which opened in June 2012.

"Like any business, we periodically evaluate our pricing and make adjustments based on a variety of factors," Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown told the Register. "A ticket to our theme parks represents a great value, particularly when you look at the breadth and quality of attractions and entertainment we offer."

In recent years, Disneyland admission has increased annually, and has nearly doubled since 2003, the Register reported.

Amid near-record attendance, sales of Southern California Passports, which allow local residents to visit more than 200 days per year, including Sundays, for one price are being suspended. The move is designed to reduce crowding on Sundays, the Register said.

People who already have the Passports, and those that have expired within a 90-day period, will still be able to renew

Southern California Select passes, which do not include weekends, are still available.

get rid of the passports or I will never go back! Nothing like paying hundreds of dollars to go into a hot overcrowded pit that nobody can enjoy! Greed is disgusting.
