On Friday March 13th, the Disneyland Resort closed the gates to both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure for the rest of the month. With the closure of the parks, an email was sent out to Disneyland Annual Passholders regarding how the closure will impact Annual Passes.
Disneyland Annual Passes expiration dates will be extended when the Disneyland Resort reopens. The expiration date for the Annual Passes will be pushed out based on how the pass was impacted during the closure of the Disneyland Resort parks. Currently, the Disneyland Resort parks are expected to be closed for a little over two weeks. Annual Passes will be extended by the amount of dates available to the pass over the course of this time.
For Annual Passholders who utilize the monthly payment program, payments will still be paid monthly. However, these payments will end during the extended time for the Annual Pass. Disney Flex Pass reservations will be automatically cancelled during the closure. This will happen with no penalty.
The Disneyland Resort continues to monitor the coronavirus situation and make changes accordingly moving forward. DAPS MAGIC will continue to cover this story and bring updates on it. Below is the email that was sent out to Disneyland Annual Passholders.
Disneyland Letter to Annual Passholders
Dear Valued Annual Passholder:
As important members of our Disneyland Resort community, we want to provide you with an update regarding COVID-19. We understand the concern you may have, as well as the increasing number of questions on how the situation will impact you.
While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 at Disneyland Resort to date, after carefully reviewing the guidelines of the Governor of California’s executive order and in the best interest of our guests and employees, we are proceeding with the closure of Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, beginning the morning of March 14, 2020, with the Parks currently scheduled to reopen on April 1, 2020. The Hotels of Disneyland Resort will remain open until Monday, March 16, 2020 to give guests the ability to make necessary travel arrangements; Downtown Disney will remain open at this time. We will monitor the ongoing situation and follow the advice and guidance of federal and state officials and health agencies.
Given the necessary closure, all Annual Passholders who have Passports that are valid during the closure period, will have their Passport expiration date extended based on pass type and level of access due to the impacts of the closure. The extended date will be reflected on your Passport account prior to our reopening of the parks.
Annual Passholders on the monthly payment program will remain on the current payment schedule and continue to make their scheduled payments. These Annual Passholders will have their Passport expiration date extended based on pass type and level of access due to the impacts of the closure, and will not be required to make any payments during that extended period.
For Disney Flex Passholders, we will cancel reservations for the duration of the closure without penalty.
We appreciate your patience and consideration during this unprecedented time.
