Star Wars fans might be excited to hop on the Millennium Falcon in Disney's upcoming Galaxy's Edge, but it looks like it's going to cost a bit more credit from the galaxy far, far away. The Mickey Mouse House just increased its park prices this year, and it looks like the hike's pretty steep.

Disneyland Resort just announced one of the steepest price increases in the park's history, revealing a 25% increase for annual passes, daily tickets, and parking. The increases took effect last Sunday, making the cheapest daily ticket come at $100 and daily parking tickets come up to $25 from its former $20 price.

The price increase shouldn't come as much of a surprise to Disneyland fans. The Mickey Mouse House hikes up its prices every year, and with the anticipated opening of Galaxy's Edge, it makes sense that the company would increase its ticket and parking costs. After all, Disney has to make up for the cost of building the Star Wars theme park.

"We continue to provide our guests with a variety of ticket offerings to meet their needs, while helping us to spread visitation, better manage demand and deliver a great experience," Liz Jaeger, Disneyland Resort spokeswoman said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

Disneyland is pretty confident that the price increase won't deter visitors from making the trip to their parks, expecting a surge of visitors with Galaxy's Edge on the way. The Star Wars expansion is going to feature two new attractions for guests, one of which includes a ride that allows visitors to pilot the iconic YT-300.

Guess Star Wars fans are going to have to save a bit more to get into Galaxy's Edge.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens in the summer at Disneyland and then Disney World during the fall.
