It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Annual Passes! Ha! We’ve been Annual Passholders for quite a few years and definitely feel blessed to be able to enjoy so much of our favorite place. We have Signature Annual Passes which has minimal blockout dates and INCLUDES parking, which is important for us since we visit the parks 2-3 times a week. We also enjoy the benefits of 20% off merchandise and 15% off food purchases at most restaurants (stand alone food vendors like churro and popcorn carts don’t offer discounts).
If you’re a Southern California resident, and don’t mind going to the parks primarily during the week (excluding most of Summer weekdays and other busy season weekdays), we suggest purchasing one of the two lowest tiered passes, the SoCal Select or the Southern California Annual Pass (less blockout dates on the Southern California option). Both passes are a great price and include 10% off food and merchandise.
If you’re looking to include parking on your pass, we suggest purchasing the Signature, Signature Plus or Premier (access to Disneyland, California Adventure and Walt Disney World parks) Passport. The discounts on food and merchandise are also higher on all 3 of these options, which is really great if you frequent the parks like we do!
Monthly payments can be made on all Annual Pass options after $97 down. This is the way we do and it’s so great! The payment amount is automatically taken out of our bank account each month, which is really nice.
Be sure to “like” Disneyland Annual Passholders on Facebook for park updates and information! Also, keep an eye on the Disneyland website’s special offers & discounts page for various specials throughout the year, including Annual Pass deals on hotel stays and more! We stayed at Aulani, Disney’s Hawaiian Resort & Spa, in January of 2017 because of an Annual Passholder special! It was so awesome and worth it.
