As of today, the popular Southern California annual pass will no longer be available to new customers, for the time being, a Disneyland spokesperson has confirmed. This annual pass allows visitors entrance to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure on certain days year round.
The $469 annual pass, one of the least expensive Disneyland visitors can obtain, was removed from the website as of this morning.
Current Southern California passholders will have the option to renew their pass and those who have had their pass expire recently should be receiving a letter on how they can renew a well.
“Our annual passes are very popular with guests,” said Michele Himmelberg, a Disneyland spokeswoman. “We continuously seek the appropriate balance that helps manage demand for our product and allows us to deliver a world-class experience for all guests.”
This is not the first time the Southern California Passport has been discontinued. In 2014, Disneyland officials removed this option as a way to help manage the crowds that come Sundays to the theme parks. Disney later reintroduced it in 2016.
For residents living in zip codes 90000 to 93599, this is one of two annual passes available. It allows guest to visit both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure park about 215 day a year, with Saturdays, holidays and part of the summer blacked out. After a $97 deposit, the $31 per month fee makes it popular among the locals.
Still available is the the Southern California Select Passport, which allows visitors 170 days of access to both theme parks – mostly on weekdays. This pass is available for $339.
