Are you considering buying a Disneyland Annual Pass For Southern California Residents? If you live in Southern California and want to visit Disneyland this year then an Annual Pass may be a good deal for you. Disneyland announced a ticket price increase on February 12th 2017. For the past 2 years the price increase has come in February.
Although prices for Disneyland tickets increased across the board, they weren’t as much as we feared. This probably has a lot to do with the hefty price hikes we have experienced for Disneyland annual passes in recent times. Perhaps we are getting used to big prices rises – although we certainly hope that this is the only Disneyland ticket price increase for 2017.
How much does the Disneyland Annual Pass For Southern California Residents cost? There are two types of Annual Pass just for Southern California Residents. To qualify you have to live in the zip codes 90000-93599.
Disneyland Southern California Select Annual Pass
This has blackout dates but allows up to 170 days in the Disneyland and California Adventure Parks. The cost of the Southern California Select Annual Pass is now $339 (increased from $329). There is no longer the option to purchase a parking pass so that will cost you $18 each time you visit.
There is a Monthly Payment Option – Southern California Select has a down payment of $97.00 and an additional 12 payments of $20.17.
You can see the blackout dates and more details of these Annual Passes on the Disneyland site.
You can also upgrade a Disneyland ticket before it expires to an Annual Pass. So if you visit Disneyland and realize that you are having so much fun and want to come back another time then you can go to the ticket booth and upgrade your ticket. The cost of your original Disneyland ticket will be put towards the cost of your Annual Pass. You must remember to do this before your ticket has expired though – you can’t go back a week later and ask nicely!
If you decide you want a “higher” Annual Pass you can also upgrade that in the same way.
The Disneyland Southern California Annual Pass is now available for $469. There is also a Monthly Payment Option with a payment of $97 down followed by payments of $31 per month.
