The maximum price of a one-day admission ticket for Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea will be ¥10,900 for adults from Oct. 1, exceeding ¥10,000 for the first time.

Oriental Land, the Tokyo Disney Resort operator, announced Friday that it will widen admission fee ranges to ease the concentration of visitors during peak seasons and weekends.

Fees for the theme parks in Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture, depend on the date of visit under a variable pricing system introduced in March 2021.

One-day passes for visitors age 18 or older are currently sold at four different price points between ¥7,900 and ¥9,400. From October, two new prices of ¥9,900 and ¥10,900 will be added.

The highest-tier tickets will be mainly for weekends during busy periods, such as Christmas and the New Year's holidays.

The highest-tier tickets for junior and senior high school students will cost ¥9,000, up from ¥7,800. Tickets for elementary school children and preschoolers aged 4 or above will stay the same.

At Universal Studios Japan in Osaka, the Disney parks' rival, the adult price of a one-day pass is set to rise to ¥10,400 in the busy period of mid-August, also exceeding ¥10,000 for the first time.
