ANAHEIM, Calif. – Visiting the “happiest place on earth” may cost you more money on busy days and less on slow days as Disney Parks is set to begin tiered ticket pricing Sunday.

Disneyland and Disney World tickets will be offered at three different rates – value, regular and peak days, according to a post on Disney Parks blog Saturday. The most expensive tickets are on peak days, including winter holidays and during the summer when students are out of school.

On days that attendance is expected to lower, park visitors would pay less for a one-day ticket during the value period, KTLA reported.

According to the Los Angeles Times, value days at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will be priced at $95, regular days at $105 and peak days at $119. The latter two prices — particularly on peak days — represent fairly substantial increases, as current single-day tickets to the Anaheim parks cost $99.

“The demand for our theme parks continues to grow, particularly during peak periods,” Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown said in a statement to the L.A. Times. “In addition to expanding our parks, we are adopting seasonal pricing on our one-day ticket to help better spread visitation throughout the year.”

Disneyland had to shut its gates during the holiday season, including Christmas Day, due to reaching maximum capacity, KTLA reported.
