Off-peak daily tickets start at $109, with regular daily tickets starting at $129 and peak-demand daily tickets at $149.

Overall, ticket prices increased an average of 8%, the Orange County Register reports, and since 2000, the price of admission to Disneyland has more than tripled.

Prices for multi-day tickets and annual passes also went up, Fortune reported.

It now costs $104 for a customer to spend a single day at a single park, either Disneyland or California Adventure on days deemed to be in low demand. "If you don't want to pay the cost of the experience, you simply don't have to go".

The 14-acre expansion will lay host to two new attractions, with one ride allowing visitors to channel their inner Han Solo and pilot the iconic Millennium Falcon spaceship, battling an Imperial fleet. A current offer discounts the daily rate to as little as $70 per day with the purchase of a "3-day, One Park" per day ticket (must be used by May 23, 2019) A park hopper option can be added for an extra $55, bringing the cost to $234 - about $78 per day.
