Disneyland Dream Key Passholders to Receive $9.5 Million Settlement Payout

Disneyland Dream Key holders from almost three years ago can expect payouts from a $9.5 million class-action settlement. Emails are reportedly going out this week with details on claiming their share.

In 2021, California resident Jenale Nielsen filed a lawsuit against Disneyland. The complaint alleged that the park misled customers about the “no blockout dates” perk of their most expensive annual pass, the Dream Key. Nielsen claimed she couldn’t reserve desired dates in November 2021 despite the advertised benefit.


Despite maintaining their innocence, Disney and the plaintiffs reached a settlement agreement in July 2023 to avoid going to court.

Around 103,435 Disneyland guests who bought the Dream Key pass (now discontinued) between August 25 and October 25, 2021, can expect a payout from a recent class-action settlement, as reported by KTLA. After legal fees, eligible passholders will receive roughly $65 each.

Are you one of the guests that will be receiving a settlement?
