Of course, these new prices directly precede the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, the highly anticipated new land coming first to Disneyland this summer, then to Walt Disney World in the fall.
WDW News Today broke down the new Disneyland Resort price changes, which are now in effect.
Disney posted increases in single and multi-day tickets, plus annual passes. The Disney Premier Passport jumped from $1,579 to $1,949 -- if you add tax, that puts it over $2,000. As WDW noted, that's a new high for Disney ticket pricing.
In terms of daily passes, here's a breakdown of some of the changes:
1 Day - Value -- now $104, was previously $97
1 Day -- Regular -- now $129, was $117
1 Day with Park Hopper - Value -- now $154, was $147
1 Day -- Peak -- now $149, was $135
In terms of annual passes, here's a breakdown:
Select pass -- now $399, was $369
Deluxe -- now $799, was $729
Signature -- now $1149, was $999
Signature Plus -- now $1399, was $1149
Premiere -- now $1949, was $1579
Some of those price jumps are pretty serious. The MaxPass addition has also gone up from $10 a day to $15 a day. General parking has gone from $20 to $25, and preferred parking is now $40, up from $35.

There's no word on Disney World, but it's unlikely those prices will go down. It's never fun to see prices go up, but what are you gonna do -- NOT check out the new Star Wars land? That's certainly an option, although it's a frustrating and disappointing one for fans who keep getting priced out of the fun. Not only will the new land have Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, it's even going to have animatronic shopkeepers you can haggle with. Here's everything we know so far about the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge lands coming to both coastal parks this year.
It just means we all have to save our pennies a bit more. And maybe for a bit longer. It should be worth it. And yet... I'm not going to get too salty, but Disney is already set to take a lot of our money at the box office in 2019. Almost every major movie of the year -- and there are many -- already gives $$$ to Disney. You can't get blood from a stone, guys.
