The Orange County Register is reporting today that the Southern California Passport, the annual pass allowing guests to enter both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park on specific days of the year will no longer be available to purchase new, for the time being, according to a Disneyland spokesperson. Current Southern California Passport holders will still have the option to renew.
Beginning today, the $469 pass – one of Disneyland’s least expensive annual pass options for Southern California residents living in ZIP codes 90000 to 93599, from San Diego to north of San Luis Obispo, will go on hiatus. The Southern California annual pass option was reportedly removed from the Disneyland.com website today.
Disneyland spokeswoman Michele Himmelberg stated:
“Our annual passes are very popular with guests. We continuously seek the appropriate balance that helps manage demand for our product and allows us to deliver a world-class experience for all guests.”
This is not the first time that the Southern California Passport has been temporarily discontinued. Back in 2014, Disneyland removed the option to purchase a new annual pass in order to manage the Sunday crowds. The pass was on hiatus for two years before it was reintroduced in 2016.
The pass is good for approximately 215 days with Saturdays, holidays, and half of the summer blocked out. It’s also very affordable – once you pay a $97 deposit, the monthly payment is only around $31 and there is no interest.
