Are you thinking of visiting both Walt Disney World and Disneyland this year? Disney has a combined annual pass for Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California. If you are visiting both the Disney California and the Disney Florida parks in one year, the Disney Premier Passport may be a good idea.
The Disney World and Disneyland Annual Pass gives ticket 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. It is the ultimate Disneyland and Disney World ticket.
The Disney World and Disneyland Annual Pass is known as the Disney Premium Annual Pass.
You will of course get all the usual Premium Annual Pass holder 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 Disney Premier Pass costs $1439 plus tax for adults and children aged 3 and up. As an Disney World Platinum Plus Annual Pass costs $869 plus tax for adults and a Disneyland Annual Premium Pass costs $1049 plus tax for adults it is a considerable saving.
If you want to compare just how much the cost of the ticket has gone up since 2010 when it was first introduced, it was originally $749. That means the Disney Premier Pass has almost doubled in price in 7 years.
So if you know you are going to be visiting both Walt Disney World and Disneyland this year then the Disney 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.

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.

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.
