For years Disneyland offered a Southern California Annual Passport designed to attract SoCal residents to help fill the parks during typical slow times of the year (most weekdays and Sundays, but not the holiday periods). The pass hasn’t been offered, except for renewals, for the last two years as the park dealt with crushing crowds in the after work hours and on Sundays and decided to back off to let demand even out a bit.
Disneyland has announced the Southern California Annual Passport is once again available to purchase at the ticket booths, and ‘soon’ online, for a price of $459. However, we understand the pass is limited to availability. So if the SoCal pass is attractive to you, I would buy it now.
The new pass is a $100 increase over the old version. But there are fewer black out days. It’s still a great deal if you plan to visit six or more days a year. They’re even offering a monthly payment plan to make it more affordable.
Don’t forget to read the fine print:
The Southern California Annual Passport is valid only for Southern California residents living in ZIP codes 90000 to 93599.
Monthly Payments option valid only for California residents who are at least 18 years old and living in ZIP codes 90000-96199 with valid ID. A one-time payment on the date of a new Passport purchase equal to the price of a 1-day, 1-park adult ticket is required. Passports subject to the Annual Passport Terms and Conditions including, but not limited to, Blockout Dates and capacity constraints. Passport types are limited in quantity, and not all Passport types may be available at any given time. Subject to other restrictions, including a retail installment agreement, and change without notice.
If you don’t have a Disneyland annual pass right now, will this entice you to buy one?
