Happiest Place on Earth gets pricier: Disneyland increases admission

It's going to cost more to visit the Happiest Place on Earth.

Disneyland has raised its ticket prices as much as 30 percent.

The cost of a single-day pass for either Disneyland or its neighboring California Adventure Park jumped this weekend from $80 to $87, a rise of nearly 9 percent.

The cost of a year-round pass for people outside of Southern California now runs $649 -- a 30 percent hike. SoCal resident annual tickets are discounted and currently cost $329.

Disneyland has boosted prices every summer in recent years, the Orange County Register reported. It now costs $21 more to visit the park for a single day than it did just four years ago.

The Adventure Park is undergoing a $1 billion makeover and expansion that will be completed next month.
