Today, the Oriental Land Company announced that ticket prices will be slightly increasing at Tokyo Disney Resort starting October 1st. Surprisingly, this move is not due to the forthcoming expansion at Tokyo Disneyland on April 15, but due to a tax increase in Japan from 8% to 10%. OLC also mentioned that these price hikes would likely affect other purchases (including merchandise) at the Resort, but largely would exempt food and beverages.
The changes are as follows (in Japanese Yen):
|Through September 30, 2019||Starting October 1, 2019|
|Type of Ticket||Adult (18+)||Junior (12-17)||Child (4-11)||Adult (18+)||Junior (12-17)||Child (4-11)|
|Two-Park Annual Passport||89,000||56,000||91,000||57,000|
|Two-Park Annual Passport (Senior)||75,000||76,000|
|One-Park Annual Passport||61,000||39,000||62,000||40,000|
|One-Park Annual Passport (Senior)||51,000||52,000|
The changes to ticket prices really aren’t all that bad, honestly. The One-Day Passport increase is only about $1.00, and the Two-Park Annual Passport increase is only around $20. I would expect much worse normally, considering the pattern at the domestic parks. However, some Japanese fans on Twitter are upset about this new development. Especially since the Annual Passport price was just lowered by ¥4000 in 2018, and now it’s halfway back to where the price was originally.
