The one-day adult peak ticket price rose from $135 to $149, while the price of the one-day regular ticket, which blocks out some dates, rose from $117 to $129.

The Los Angeles Times noted that the increase went into effect less than a year after Disneyland marked up prices by as much as 18 percent.

It will now cost $1,949 (previously $1,579). The rates for annual passes and parking are, of course, also going up.

The prices apply to both the original Disneyland in Anaheim, California, and its sister park, California Adventure.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Disneyland Resort announced that ticket prices are increasing by up to 25 percent for daily tickets, annual passes, and parking. The least expensive day pass for Disney World in Orlando is now $109.

Disney introduced yearly price adjustments in 2016 to tackle crowd control, as attendance figures continued to sore.

Calling all Star Wars fans!

"We continue to provide our guests with a variety of ticket offerings to meet their needs, while helping us to spread visitation, better manage demand, and deliver a great experience", a Disneyland rep said in a statement provided SYFY WIRE.

But with prices of entry seeing a sharp incline, and with visitor demand expected to hit new heights this year, is it actually the die-hard Disneyland attendees footing the bill for the costly expansion?

Disney representatives said that more days will be blocked out in 2019 for most annual passholders than they were a year ago.

Based on the ever-popular Star Wars franchise, Galaxy's Edge will include a number of rides inspired by the galaxy far, far away like Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
