Disney Jacks Prices Prior To Star Wars Land Opening

Prior to the opening of the highly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge theme park, Disney has raised the prices of tickets quite extensively.

The AP notes that following less than a year ago when Disney raised prices by 18 percent, now they have raised prices up to another 25 percent on tickets.

EW points out the cheapest single-day ticket for a “low-demand” day in the Anaheim park is $104, while at Disney World in Florida it will be $109.

The ticket price during a high-demand day is now up to $149, with rates for annual passes and parking going up as well.

It's noted the most expensive pass, the Premier Pass, which includes no block-out dates, parking, and access to both parks will cost you a massive $1,949 — a 23 percent jump from last year.

The ticket prices for 2019 have risen from 7 to 25 percent, which again, is on top of last year's increase.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens summer 2019 at Disneyland Resort and fall 2019 at Walt Disney World Resort. Attractions include the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, which puts guests behind the controls of the most famous ship in the galaxy in one of three unique flight crew roles; ​Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance puts guests in the middle of an epic battle between the Resistance and the First Order; also available will be a street market in Black Spire Outpost, or visit the Cantina where you can see an old friend Rex, as well as encounter creatures and characters that are hallmarks of the Star Wars universe.

A Disney rep offered the following comment when asked about the ticket price increase: “We continue to provide our guests with a variety of ticket offerings to meet their needs, while helping us to spread visitation, better manage demand and deliver a great experience.”
