Disneyland Resort is hiking ticket prices ahead of the opening of its Star Wars-themed expansion, as it anticipates record visitor demand, increasing by an average of eight percent.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, opening this summer, will feature two attractions, including a ride that lets visitors pilot the Millennium Falcon, the spaceship flown by Han Solo.

As of Sunday, value tickets – or low demand days – for Disneyland or California Adventure park increased to $104 from $97. A ticket for regular-demand days are now $129, from $117; peak-demand tickets rose to $149 from $135.

The least expensive one-day ticket to Disney World in Orlando is $109.

Daily parking also increased by 25 percent to $25.

Annual passholders can also expect to pay more. The “Southern California Select Pass,” which blocks out all weekends, most of the summer months and most of the fall and winter holidays, will cost $399, up from $369.

For the “Deluxe Pass,” which includes admission to both parks on select days, customers pay $799, up from $729.

For the most expensive pass, the “Premier Pass,” which includes parking, access to both parks and no block-out days, the price rose to $1,949 from $1,579, a whopping 23.4 percent increase.

Disney raised ticket prices at its parks twice in 2018, citing higher visitor volume. The demand-based ticket pricing attempts to spread out crowds, charging more for weekends and holidays.
