It may be nicknamed the Happiest Place on Earth, but no one ever called it the cheapest.

Disneyland reportedly upped the prices for single tickets to its California theme park by $4 Sunday, and hoisted the cost for some its premium admissions considerably as well. Deadline Hollywood reports:  

Today the price of a one-day, one park ticket for visitors 10 years and older increased $4 to $96, with the cost of a Disneyland/California Adventures Park-Hopper shooting up to $150 from $137 for adults. Disney also bumped up prices for SoCal Select (+$10 to $289), Deluxe (+$20 to $519), Premium (+$30 to $699), and Premier (+$50 to $1,029) passes. 

The site reports that Disney has also suspended sales for its popular "SoCal Annual Passport," a favorite among Southern Californians who want regular weekend access to the park. Folks who've already purchased passes and those whose passports have recently expired will be able to renew.
