Tax Increase Means Ticket Price Increases for Tokyo Disney Resort Effective October 1st

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

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)
One-Day Passport 7,400 6,400 4,800 7,500 6,500 4,900
Senior Passport 6,700 6,800
Starlight Passport 5,400 4,700 3,500 5,500 4,800 3,600
After-6 Passport 4,200 4,300
Two-Day Passport 13,200 11,600 8,600 13,400 11,800 8,800
Three-Day Passport 17,800 15,500 11,500 18,100 15,800 11,800
Four-Day Passport 22,400 19,400 14,400 22,800 19,800 14,800
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.
