The Disneyland Resort has suspended the Southern California annual pass. This pass, which was $469, no longer appeared on the Disneyland.com website as of Monday November 20, 2017. This annual pass has been incredibly popular to locals. Generally the days when all passes were not blocked have been incredibly busy at the Disneyland Resort. Here is a breakdown of the annual passports as listed on Disneyland.com today when logged in as a local:
The Orange County Register is reporting that the Southern California annual passport is just on hiatus. Those who already own the pass will be able to renew. Those who have passes that just recently expired will receive a letter with directions on how to renew.
This is not the first time that this pass has been discontinued. In 2014 this pass was discontinued before being reintroduced in 2016. It comes at a time when Disneyland is ramping up for the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in 2019. With the demand that is expected to come with this opening, expect more changes on the horizon. Already a new tiered pricing structure has been put in place for tickets. Pricing has also increased.
The Southern California Select pass is still available. At $339, it offers the chance for passholders to visit the Disneyland Resort mostly on weekdays.
