Disney World and Disneyland Annual Pass

Are you thinking of visiting both Walt Disney World and Disneyland this year? Disney has just announced a new combined annual pass for Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California.

Named the Disney Premier Passport this annual ticket will give pass holders access to Disneyland, Disney’s California Adventure, Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, as well as the Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon water parks, DisneyQuest, Disney’s Wide World of Sport’s and the Oak Trail Golf Course. In other words it is a combined Disneyland Annual Premium Pass and Disney World Premium Annual Pass.




You will of course get all the usual Premium Annual Passholder perks including free parking, select merchandise discounts and invitations to special events.

Whilst I am extremely pleased that Disney is finally offering this pass as I visit both parks and this will represent a considerable saving, it will be interesting to see how many guests become Disney Premier Passport Holders.

Each Premier Pass costs $1099 plus tax for adults and children aged 3 and up. As an adult Disney World Premium Annual Pass costs $779 plus tax for adults and a Disneyland Annual Premium Pass costs $779 plus tax for adults it is a considerable saving.

So if you know you are going to be visiting both Walt Disney World and Disneyland this year then the Premier Pass may make a lot of sense for you and your family. You can buy your Disney Premier Pass at any Disneyland ticket window, Guest Relations at Walt Disney World theme parks and Downtown Disney. This pass is not yet available online.

We were told by one castmember that the Premier pass was good for entry at Disneyland Paris. Can anyone confirm that please? Too bad the pass price has gone up to $749 šŸ™

Thanks!

Unfortunately the Disney Premier Passport is only valid for Disneyland and Disney World. As yet there aren’t any combined tickets which include Disneyland Paris and any of the other Disney theme parks worldwide.

If I have a Disneyland Premium Pass do I get a discount when buying disneyworld 3 day tickets? (im visiting disneyworld for only a week so the Premier pass doesnt really make sense for me. Thanks!!!!

Unfortunately no you won’t get a discount. The Premium Pass is the only one which gives you benefits or discounts at both Disney World and Disneyland.

We currently have Disneyland passes, is there anyway we can upgrade to the Dinsey/DisneyWorld pass and pay the difference?

Yes you can upgrade. Just go to guest services at any of the Disney World or Disneyland parks and they will help.

Sadly, this pass is gone, as of October 4th 2015. As of 12/1/2015, a new Premier Pass is only good at Disneyland Resort is $1079/year and for DisneyWorld it is $883/year.

There are Annual passes as low as $400 per year at Disneyland Resort, and $797 at DisneyWorld. If you can work around the blackout dates, this looks like the best option.

The pass may be available at the gates only. I am going to check now and will report back.

Yup the Premier Pass is still available at $1479 as of yesterday (12/6/2015). The Premier Passport is only available at the ticket windows at Disneyland, Guest Relations office at Disneyworld and the River Springs Resort at Disneyworld. You must go in person.

As of right now the Premier passport works with the Magic Band and Disneyworld App, but not the Disneyland App.

There are several other passes at Disneyland that range from $349 to $1049 plus tax.

The best deal for SoCal residents is the payment plan. 0% interest, so even if you have the cash, let Mickey float you a 0% Loan, just keep in mind you make the down payment at the ticket window and they take the first months payment the next day.
