    Disneyland ticket price history

    Anyone have a complete list of the price history of the Disneyland park admission tickets?
    Just curious to see how much it has changed over the years, and I know it's been quite a lot since it opened.
    Thanks!

    Re: Disneyland ticket price history

    I remember a thread a year or two ago that listed the price increases since 1955, and the phenomenal jump in increases that started when Eisner took over... but danged if I can find it. (I think sediment may have posted it?)

    Any Google gurus in the house?

    Meanwhile there's this thread, that links to Wikipedia's article with a chart of Disneyland admission prices from 1981 to 2001, and to Jan's World that gives admission and ticket book prices from 1955 to the late 70s.

    Opening Day, admission was $1.00 and each ride was 25 cents. In the late 1980's to early 90's, there was only one Annual Pass. It was comparable to today's Premium Pass and was $199 for several years. That's all I can remember without looking it up.

    I have a Birnbaum Disneyland guidebook from 1987. The listed price for an adult admission ticket ("Passport") was $17.95.

    I think we went for the first time in 1978 and my father worked for the Feds, they had a pass you could get that was unlimited, I should go to my moms and dig out the baby book and see if she stuck it in there

    There have been several new E tickets. They may be in DCA, but since most tickets include the option to park hop, DLR admission certainly provides a lot more entertainment than it used to.

    Also, no one is forced to buy tickets, so the term "ripped off" is not appropriate.

    Ripped off is when you pay for one thing, and you don't get it. You know what you are buying, so you aren't being ripped off...
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.
