A visit to "the happiest place on Earth" just got more expensive.

The price of a single-day ticket to Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., for visitors 10 and older was raised to $96, up from $92. The increase applies to Disney California Adventure Park as well.

Single-day ticket prices for the theme park have more than doubled in the past decade.

"Like any business, we periodically evaluate our pricing and make adjustments based on a variety of factors," Disneyland Resort spokeswoman Suzi Brown said in a statement. "A ticket to our theme parks represents a great value, particularly when you look at the breadth and quality of attractions and entertainment we offer and the special moments guests experience with our cast."

The cost for the Southern California Select, Deluxe, Premium and Premier annual passes went up by $10 to $50. The park suspended the sales of its Southern California annual pass to control the growing crowds.

"At this time, the Southern California Annual Pass will be available for on-time renewals only," Brown said.

The resort said it expects to reopen sales of the Southern California pass at a later date.
