Why Hong Kong Disneyland has hiked its prices


An influx of soon to be launched experiences and facilities has lead to a review and increase of admission prices at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort.

Under the new pricing, a 1-day ticket for general admission for visitors aged 12 to 64 has increased from HK$499 (approx. AU$90) to HK$539 (approx. AU$98) and a ticket for children aged three to 11 has risen from HK$355 (approx. AU$64) to HK$385 (approx. AU$70).

 

Two-day tickets for general admission and children have increased from HK$680 (approx. AU$124) and HK$480 (approx. AU$87) to HK$739 (approx. AU$135) and HK$545 (approx. AU$100) respectively while one- and two-day senior admission ticket prices remain unchanged.

 

The good news for travel trade however, is that they're being offered a two-month grace period and are able to enjoy the old ticket prices from now until January 10, 2016. Pre-purchased tickets will be valid until the same date also.

 

By raising its prices, Hong Kong Disneyland says it is able to continue developing and adding exciting new attractions, and has been mindful to ensure the new pricing still offers good value to visitors.

 

According to a resort spokesperson, ”The resort evaluates and adjusts pricing based on a variety of factors including the value of the resort’s attractions and entertainment offerings as well as future development needs.”

 

Throughout 2015, visitors have enjoyed the vibrant new ‘Disney Paint the Night’ parade, as part of the year-long ‘Happily Ever After’ 10th anniversary celebration.

New to the resort this month is the stage show Mickey and the Wondrous Book, while late next year Marvel’s first ‘Iron Man Experience’ will launch followed by the opening of a third hotel, Disney Explorers Lodge, in early 2017.

 

“Hong Kong Disneyland has been delivering countless magical and memorable experience to our guests in the past decade with the strong support from travel trade industry,” the spokesperson continued.

 

“We will continue to work hand-in-hand with our travel trade partners to explore business opportunities together and sustain our win-win partnership for more years to come.”

Hong Kong is one of five international Disneyland resorts. Since opening in 2005 it has welcomed more than 50 million guests who come to enjoy the rides, hotels, hospitality and entertainment venues and 7,800-strong cast of loved characters including Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Stitch and Buzz Lightyear.
