Loss-making Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is to raise its one-day admission fees by 3.2 per cent to HK$639 (US$82), the most expensive ticket price in Asia for such theme parks.

This is the fifth time prices have risen since the park opened in 2005. The increase means adult admission will cost HK$639 and HK$475 for a child, while two-day tickets will rise by a similar extent to HK$825 and HK$609 respectively, the Lantau Island park announced on Tuesday.

The new prices will take effect on Wednesday. But Hong Kong residents can enjoy a two-month grace period to buy all annual passes and one-day tickets at current prices.

Annual passes will also be raised by about 3 per cent with a platinum membership priced at HK$3,599, HK$2,059 for gold and HK$1,278 for silver.

To retain regulars, Disneyland has also offered annual pass holders the chance to renew at a discount.

The new one-day fee is much higher than the 7,400 yen (US$66) charged by Disneyland in Tokyo and 399 yuan (US$59) by Shanghai Disney Resort.

Hong Kong Disneyland, jointly owned by the Hong Kong government and Walt Disney, recorded a loss last year, the fourth straight year of deficits. Last year’s loss narrowed to HK$54 million from the HK$345 million deficit it reported in 2017.
