A one-day, one-park ticket for Disneyland or California Adventure Park went from $97 to $104 for low-demand days such as weekdays in May, according to the paper.

Multi-day ticket prices also saw a spike in pricing, with two-day, one-park tickets now costing $225 (previously $210).

Disney's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge attractions (show in construction) will feature a to-scale Millennium Falcon replica, in a project believe to have cost $1 billion.

The cheapest annual pass now costs $399, up from $369. The 14-acre addition is expected to draw huge crowds.

The ride will use real-time video rendering technology to respond to the way riders manipulate its 200 cockpit controls.

'It is going to be an intense, super-fun experience in the fastest ship in the galaxy'.

Of course, none of those prices include the cost of Mickey ears, ice cream cones and other items that make a day at Disney complete.

"If anything, people might switch to visiting at less crowded times of the year to escape the highest prices-but that's exactly what Disney wants its fans to do, as it looks to balance attendance levels throughout the year".

Calling all Star Wars fans!

The second of the attractions, titled "The Rise of the Resistance", will see riders in a race-against-time battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

Disney representatives said that more days will be blocked out in 2019 for most annual passholders than they were previous year.

Spokeswoman Liz Jaeger says the resort offers a variety of tickets while helping manage demand and spread visitation.

The increase in ticket prices have always been aimed at crowd control, and with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy Edge which will feature two attractions and a 14-acre expansion, it's still not clear if tickets price increases will limit the crowds.
