Prices for daily tickets, parking and annual passes have been raised up to 25 percent at Disneyland Resort ahead of the scheduled opening of a Star Wars-themed expansion. That will cost you a whopping $1,949 - and that's a 23 percent bump from past year. With tax, that could cost more than $2,000.

"We continue to provide our guests with a variety of ticket offerings to meet their needs, while helping us to spread visitation, better manage demand, and deliver a great experience", a Disneyland rep said in a statement provided SYFY WIRE.

In 2016, the park adopted a "demand" pricing set up which offers lower prices on days when demand is lower and higher prices on weekends and holidays when more people are off and expected to visit the park.

Disneyland's most expensive pass, the "Premier Pass" - which includes parking and access to both parks year round - has now jumped from $1,579 to $1,949, an increase of 23.4%. The cost to park also went up from $20 to $25.

Discounts will be available for multi-day purchases, military personnel and Southern California residents. "I don't expect to go to Disneyland anytime in the near future".

Kevin Hart May Return as Oscars Host Thanks to Ellen Degeneres
According to DeGeneres, the Academy is interested, telling her , "Whatever we can do, we would be thrilled". The motion picture Academy has not named a replacement host for its February 24 awards show.

Still, some fans were devastated and bemoaned the price hikes. That's an 8.1 percent increase from the previous price of $369.

Disneyland ticket prices are now over $100 with the theme park preparing to open its Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge attraction this coming summer.

The 14-acre expansion will lay host to two new attractions, with one ride allowing visitors to channel their inner Han Solo and pilot the iconic Millennium Falcon spaceship, battling an Imperial fleet.

A new Star Wars hotel is under construction near the Orlando park.
