LAistory: Price of Happiness Now $69
A Quick Look at the History of the Cost of a Trip to Anaheim's Disneyland
The high cost of living has hit everyone hard, and now Mickey Mouse is feeling the pain, too. That's why the price of coming to visit him and all his friends at the "Happiest Place on Earth" will be even more expensive, starting tomorrow. KNBC explains:
At Disneyland in Anaheim, one-day prices will rise from $66 to $69 for those aged 10 and older, and from $56 to $59 for children aged 3 to 9.
The price increase applies in varying degrees for longer stays, while the park hopper option, an add-on that allows ticket-holders to move among any of Disney's parks, will cost $50, up from $45.
The cost of getting yourself (and your family and friends) a key to the Magic Kingdom has risen dramatically in the past decade, and even more so in just the past few years; as recently as 2004 a one-day admission was just $49.75, almost $20 less than what it will be as of Sunday.But most of us know Disneyland as an expensive outing (tickets, plus food, plus shopping for trinkets) or as the "Grad Nite" destination. So what's the history of ticket prices?
