Effective December 15, 2017, ticket prices for Hong Kong Disneyland have increased between 4% to 9%, according to the South China Morning Post. It’s the fifth annual price increase at the resort.
Prices for one-day admission are now HK$619 (US $79.24) for adults and HK$458 (US $58.63) for children, up from HK$589 (US $75.40) and HK$419 (US $53.64), respectively.
The regular two-day admission price has increased to HK$799/HK$589 (US $102.26/$75.38), from HK$759/HK$539 (US $97.14/$68.96). (U.S. dollar rates are based on current exchange rates.)
Guests visiting through the end of this year can take advantage of special discounts, however. The resort is currently offering a special “Play and Shop 1-Day Ticket Offer” for the old prices (HK$589/HK$419) that includes a HK$50 (US $6.40) merchandise gift voucher and a buy-one get-one popcorn voucher. According to the Hong Kong Disneyland website, tourists visiting Hong Kong, excluding residents of Mainland China and Macau, are eligible for the special offer. There’s also a special “Discounted ‘2-Day Fun’ Ticket” for HK$649/HK$461 (US $83.06/$59.00) available through Dec. 31, with no listed restrictions on guest eligibility.
Annual pass prices have increased as well. However, Hong Kong residents who purchase three or more annual passes will receive a 15% discount through April 10, 2018.
The 30% discount for Hong Kong residents with disabilities remains in place. The price for seniors (age 65 and over) remains at HK$100 (US $12.80) for one-day and HK$170 (US $21.76) for two-day admission.
The South China Morning Post also reported that annual passholders who renew early can get a 20% discount, and Hong Kong residents can continue to purchase regular one-day admissions at the previous prices through February 15, 2018. These pricing exceptions are not listed on the Hong Kong Disneyland website.
The price increase comes just two days after Hong Kong Disneyland’s major rival park, Ocean Park, announced it would increase admission by 9% effective January 1, 2018. Both Hong Kong Disneyland and Ocean Park have been operating at deficits.
It also comes just a few weeks after Hong Kong Disneyland announced it would be ending its nightly “Disney in the Stars” fireworks show as of January 1 and beginning a major renovation of its castle beginning in early January. Those changes are part of the resort’s multi-year development plan announced last November, which also includes a new Frozen-themed land and new Marvel attractions.
Shanghai Disneyland also recently announced a price increase effective June 6, 2018. Hong Kong Disneyland’s tickets are the most expensive of the three Disney resorts in Asia.
