Disneyland, deemed the happiest place in the world, is the childhood dream of holiday destinations but those looking to book a trip to Disneyland Park in California may notice a difference when it comes to booking.

Bookings for 2019 will see up to a 25% increase in ticket and parking prices, with the cheapest park ticket increasing by just over £75.00. For a family of four, that’s a budget-busting (approx.) £300.00 rise.

But Disney may have a good reason for the increase as summer sees the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and visitor numbers are expected to rise.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to be the most immersive attraction in the history of Disney Parks and will give visitors the experience of being in the middle of a battle between the Resistance and the First Order. There’s also an opportunity to fly the Millennium Falcon – any Star Wars fanatic’s dream.

With such an increase on prices, and many people choosing to book their trip to Disney independently, it is worth noting not all travel insurance policies will offer to cover the cost of theme-park tickets or booked excursions if the trip is cancelled.

When booking a trip to Disney, especially with the rise in prices, it is worth looking for a travel insurance policy that will offer cover for pre-paid tickets.
