This round of price increases for Disneyland Resort was mostly pretty moderate, all things considered. After rather sharp increases in the wake of the Carsland expansion, this year’s price hikes for non-Passholders peak around 7%. I hesitate to draw to many conclusions about what these prices might reveal about deeper strategy on the part of Disney management, especially since most of the Disneyland prices are nice “round” $5, $10, or $15 increments. But there is at least some suggestion here that smaller increases for 1-2 day tickets may be an effort to offer an alternative for locals who were on the edge of the Seasonal AP market, and may instead purchase regular tickets for a few short trips, rather than purchase an AP (the prices for which have increased at steeper rate).

At the opposite end, slower rates of increase for four and five day tickets may indicate continued efforts to emphasize the tourist market. That argument is perhaps bolstered by relatively steep price increases for parking – an element that many tourists avoid when staying at a hotel of the Disneyland Resort by traveling without a car. But the change from $18 – $20 may also be little more than simplifying the payment collection process – eliminating the slowdown of passing out $2 in change per car.

Star Wars Land is the next major construction project with a scheduled opening for Disneyland, and it’s not set to open until 2019. If recent practice holds up, that should mean that we get one more year of moderate price increases next year, before a larger price hike on the cusp of the big opening.
