Disneyland tickets will go on sale Oct. 24 at sharp discounts—more than half-off—for children ages 3 to 9 for park entry early next year.
The deal offers tickets for as little as $50 per child per day that can be used Jan. 8 to March 10 at Disneyland or Disney California Adventure, a stark contrast from current child prices of $104 and up.
The kids deal is for 1-, 2- or 3-day ticket packages.
“These limited-time child tickets are a great value,” Disneyland Resorts spokesperson Kelsey Lynch said on the Disney Parks blog.
The deal provides significant savings compared to current children’s ticket prices, which are $270 for a 2-day pass and $340 for 3 days. Under the promotion, a 3-day child pass is $150.
One-day kids’ tickets can sell for up to $179, which is the park’s “highest demand” date ticket, usually falling around Halloween or Christmas.
The new deal has no blackout dates and will expire 13 days after the first day of use, if multiple days are purchased. That means customers will have to use their multi-day tickets within a two-week window after the first visit.
Following purchase, however, adults will have to make additional online reservations to ensure they can enter the park for the dates purchased, which can be done on the Disneyland website or app. Starting later this month, the parks will make the reservation calendar viewable 180 days in advance.
Despite the pricing incentive, however, some parents are still not keen on bringing their children back to the parks any time soon due to what some are calling the company’s “controversial” take on social issues.
One such example includes Disney Pixar’s latest movie reveal, “Wish,” which depicts protagonist Asha, who “makes an impassioned plea to the sky.” The movie’s God-like character Star, who hails from the heavens, then joins the plot as a source of strife for her.
“I just don’t think we’ll be taking our kids back any time soon, especially after their new movie basically makes God into the bad guy,” a recent Disneyland visitor told The Epoch Times.
