The increases went into effect Sunday and come less than a year after the theme park raised prices more than eight percent on "peak days" for one-day, one-park tickets.

Those increased ticket prices don't include parking, which has jumped from $20 per day to $25.

Don't expect Disneyland to get less crowded, says Robert Niles, editor of ThemeParkInsider.com.

In 2016, Disneyland switched to a flexible, demand-based ticketing system, adjusting prices with the season people want to visit and the expected number of guests in the park for specific days.

"Extremely disappointed", wrote another person on Facebook.

"It's not about making kids happy anymore, it's about making money", read one post on Twitter.

The uptick comes less than a year after a 18 percent increase, according to the LA Times.

'The experience on Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run puts you straight in that cockpit right behind the controls, whether you're one of the pilots, the gunners or flight engineers keeping the ship operating, ' said Scott Trowbridge, creative executive, Walt Disney Imagineering in a behind the scenes video.

It now costs $104 for a customer to spend a single day at a single park, either Disneyland or California Adventure on days deemed to be in low demand. A current offer discounts the daily rate to as little as $70 per day with the purchase of a "3-day, One Park" per day ticket (must be used by May 23, 2019) A park hopper option can be added for an extra $55, bringing the cost to $234 - about $78 per day.
