Disneyland announced two new annual passports today as well as a price increase. They also eliminated the no-blackout Premium Annual Passport. If you are a current Premium passholder, you’ll still be able to use your passport but will not be able to renew.
The new passports now being offered are the Disney Signature Plus and the Disney Signature. The cost of the Disney Signature Plus is $1,049 with no blackout days, and the cost of the Disney Signature is $849, good for visits for about 350 days, excluding the 2 weeks around Christmas and New Year.
Both of these new passes come with other benefits like parking, dining and merchandise discounts, and a new PhotoPass that allows unlimited digital downloads of photos taken in the parks. Passholders will no longer have to pay separately for PhotoPass photos.
Both the Deluxe and Southern California Select annual pass prices were also increased, as well as parking fees at the parks. The new price for a Deluxe pass, with some Saturday and peak-holiday-period blackouts, went up $50, to $599. Southern California passes, which are only available for renewals, increased from $389 to $459. The cheapest pass – Southern California Select – went from $299 to $329. California residents still have monthly payment options for their annual passes. Parking at the parks is now $18 and Downtown Disney now offers just 2 hours of free parking, with an additional 2 hours with validation from a restaurant or movie. Hourly parking at Downtown Disney is now $12 rather than $6.
