HK Disneyland hikes ticket prices for 3rd straight year

Hong Kong Disneyland has raised its ticket prices for the third consecutive year even as the local tourism industry struggles with slowing visitor numbers and reduced spending by mainlanders. 

Effective Wednesday, a one-day general admission ticket for an adult will cost 8 percent more at HK$539, while a child ticket will come for HK$385.

A two-day pass for children will cost HK$525, an increase of 9.4 percent from the previous level.

The price hike means a family of four, comprising two adults and two children, will have to spend HK$1,848 just on ticket fees if they want a one-day outing at the theme park.

However, only non-residents will be hit by the new prices immediately, as Hong Kong locals can buy the tickets at old rates until January 10 next year, Sing Tao Daily reported.

Meanwhile, the company announced some price cuts on annual entry pass in celebration of the park’s 10th anniversary.

Prices for gold passes were cut by 13.4 percent to 13.7 percent, while other passes saw no change. People who renew their annual passes can get 15 percent discount.

In other news, Disneyland will introduce a new one-day ticket for disabled adults, at 30 percent less than regular tickets.
