Disneyland ticket prices have increased ahead of the Disney 100 celebration in 2023.

Disney Parks

Disneyland has once again upped the pricing of its theme park tickets in California ahead of the Disney 100 Years of Wonder (Disney100) celebration kicking off in January. Under the new pricing, it can now cost guests up to $244 to attend both theme parks for a single day.

First up, Disneyland has added a new "tier 0" category for its cheapest one-day tickets. They are priced at $104 per day for one park -- previously the cost of tier 1 tickets -- but dates are very limited. So far, it's available only on a few weekdays in January and February. The more you pay, the less blockout dates there are.

Here's how much a one-day ticket now costs to attend one park:

  • Tier 0: $104
  • Tier 1: $114 (up from $104)
  • Tier 2: $129 (up from $119)
  • Tier 3: $144 (up from $134)
  • Tier 4: $159 (up from $149)
  • Tier 5: $169 (up from $159)
  • Tier 6: $179 (up from $164)

If you want a one-day park hopper ticket, so you can gain entry to both Disneyland and California Adventure, here are the prices:

  • Tier 0: $169
  • Tier 1: $179
  • Tier 2: $194
  • Tier 3: $209
  • Tier 4: $224
  • Tier 5: $234
  • Tier 6: $244

You can see Disney's blockout dates online for each ticket option.

Here's Disneyland's multi-day ticket pricing now:

  • 2-day ticket: $143 per day ($286 total)
  • 3-day ticket: $120 per day ($360 total)
  • 4-day ticket: $99 per day ($396 total)
  • 5-day ticket: $83 per day ($415 total)

With a park hopper included, multi-day tickets cost:

  • 2-day ticket: $203 per day ($406 total)
  • 3-day ticket: $180 per day ($540 total)
  • 4-day ticket: $159 per day ($636 total)
  • 5-day ticket: $143 per day ($715 total)

Genie Plus, the paid system that replaced free fastpasses, now also costs $25 per person per day, a $5 increase on its previous pricing.

It follows Disneyland increasing the price of its annual passes, now called Magic Keys, in August. The top-end Magic Key costs $1,600 per year but includes blockout dates across major holidays and Saturdays in July. All four Magic Keys come with a 20% discount on the price of Genie Plus.

The price increases come as Disney plans an Avengers Campus multiverse expansion and its Princess and the Frog retheme of Splash Mountain. Disneyland is also launching MagicBand Plus wearables in the fall.
