Disneyland raising prices, cheapest daily ticket over $100

According to The Los Angeles Times, the cheapest ticket to get into Disneyland now costs more than $100, while daily parking prices are increasing from $20 to $25.

The park is anticipating a surge of interest for the opening of its Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge expansion, which includes a 14-acre immersive world based on the popular sci-fi franchise and new rides and attractions (including the one pictured above, where visitors can "fly" the Millennium Falcon). The price of the one-day value ticket, which blocks out even more dates, rose from $97 to $104.

But with prices of entry seeing a sharp incline, and with visitor demand expected to hit new heights this year, is it actually the die-hard Disneyland attendees footing the bill for the costly expansion? Regular-demand days have risen in ticket prices from $117 to $129 which is a 10.3 percent increase.

Why?: A Disneyland spokeswoman said the resort offers different tickets to help with park demand, Fox Business reported. And on peak-demand days?

Someone else likened the cost of going to Disneyland to that of attending a big-league athletic event: "Pretty soon it will go the way of pro sports season tickets and stadium food". That's an 8.1 percent increase from the previous price of $369. In fact, 211 days are blocked for the next 12 months.

Hogan looked to get sincerely choked up when bidding Okerlund goodbye, having to put on his sunglasses to hide the emotion. At the time, WWE immediately fired Hogan, removed him from the Hall of Fame and the company stopped mentioning his name.

The Deluxe Pass and Premier Pass have also increased.

The park is now holding a limited-time offer for patrons both in California and in other states.

And if you want to take advantage of the MaxPass, a digital ride-reservation system on your smartphone, be prepared to pay an extra $5.
