Could Tokyo Disney Resort ticket price changes be in the works? It seems to be something Oriental Land Co. is considering.
Oriental Land Co. operates the Tokyo Disney Resort and they are currently considering a number of changes to admission fee structure at its theme parks. These changes include a fluctuating ticket prices determined by the number of visitors anticipated or simply raising prices across the board.
Ticket prices at the Tokyo Disney Resort have been the same since April of 2016.
President of Oriental Land Co., Kyoichiro Uenishi, recently discussed the matter during an interview with The Yomiuri Shimbun, a news outlet in Japan.
“We must be cautious about raising fees because consumer income has not increased much, although we can see a slight upturn in consumer confidence. It’s difficult [to determine],” Uenishi said.
Uenishi also discussed the planned consumption tax hike set for October 2019. He stated that Oriental Land Co. will consider its effect in the decisions they make.
There are plans by Oriental Land Co. to make a large investment in the theme parks to increase visitor satisfaction and to make them more accepting of an increase in ticket prices. There are plans to open two new zones in the theme parks. Once will be centered on the Disney classic, “Beauty and the Beast” and would ope in the spring of 2020. The other will have ties to “Frozen” and open sometime during 2022.
