Disneyland Ticket Prices Hit Triple Digits, As High As $119, Under New Tiered Pricing
Tickets to Disneyland, the famous human gathering area in Orange County where adults and children alike treasure the act of standing in line for hours staring at their phones, will reach their highest prices ever under a new "seasonal" pricing scheme the theme park just unveiled.

Times reports. And that's before the Star Tours shirt you have to buy when you spill ice cream on yourself. Previously, tickets were $99.
