Anaheim, CA -- Disney raised the price of a admission to its Disneyland Resort theme parks by $2. The one-day ticket price to Disneyland Park or Disney's California Adventure is now $47. Park officials blame the jump on increased operating and investment expenses. Disneyland admission prices have increased 24 percent since 1998.
Disney will continue to rely on discounts to attract locals. Presently, Southern California residents who buy a full-priced ticket to either Disneyland Park or Disney's California Adventure park will receive a free ticket to the other park for use by May 14.
