Disneyland Resort Sees Pricing Increase in Annual Passes

Share This!

IMG_3863Disney is on a roll, because not only does Walt Disney World have a new pricing structure for its Annual Passes beginning this morning, but Disneyland Resort does as well.  It appears that there were some major changes that occurred with this restructuring, so because things like this can be confusing, let’s take a closer look.

With this new change, there appear to be three major passes for Disneyland Guests to choose from. These new Annual Passes are the Disney Signature Plus Passport, the Disney Signature Passport, and the Disney Deluxe Passport.

The Disney Signature Plus Passport costs $1,049.00 for ages 3 and up and includes admission to the two theme parks every day of the year, including Park Hopping. Guests will also get theme park parking, the new ability to download Disney PhotoPass photos, special offers for stays at Disney Resort hotels and valuable discounts on dining, merchandise, recreation and tours.

The Disney Signature Passport costs $849.00 for ages 3 and up and includes admission to the two theme parks most days of the year, including Park Hopping, however, there are blackout dates included with this pass. Those blackout dates include December holidays and other peak days. Guests will also get theme park parking, the new ability to download Disney PhotoPass photos, special offers for stays at Disney Resort hotels and valuable discounts on dining, merchandise, recreation and tours.

The Disney Deluxe Passport costs $599.00 for ages 3 and up and includes admission to the two theme parks select days of the year, including Park Hopping, however, there are blackout dates included with this pass. Those blackout dates include holidays and other peak days. Guests will also get theme park parking, the new ability to download Disney PhotoPass photos, special offers for stays at Disney Resort hotels and valuable discounts on dining, merchandise, recreation and tours.

There were also changes that occurred with the California Resident passes, so for more information about Disneyland Annual Passes, make sure to check out their pricing page.

The two-resort Premier Passport, which includes both Walt Disney World and Disneyland, has also seen a substantial increase. It now costs $1,439 plus tax.

    Do the Signature and Premiere passports come with a free psychological examination? What non-state resident (Since people who live close have their own pricing and passes) in their right mind would spend THAT much time at either Disney park? Disney is not that great. I couldn’t even manage to kill a whole day at Disney World before being bored and ready to move on.

    I believe the Deluxe does not include the PhotoPass downloads.

    On that note, information on Disney’s website (Guest Services, PhotoPass service) seems to indicate that those who still have Premier passes also get these downloads, but also that Deluxe and the resident passes will no longer be able to link their APs to PhotoPass? What exactly does this all entail?? Does it mean that all pass levels that get ‘PhotoPass downloads’ can download their photos for free now, as opposed to having to purchase the digital downloads? Or just that the other levels won’t be able to link their passes and it’s business as usual for everyone else?

    Sorry for all the questions; just hoping you all might have some more insight into how this is working.

      Mm, I misread ‘Premium’ and ‘Premier’, which clears up a good chunk of what I was wondering. :\

    I quit going to Disney places when the entrance fee was $100. You see… it’s not just the price of getting in, but the $10 churros, the $40.00 hamburgers, and $4.00 drinks. Ya.. it’s an entertaining place. But there is no place on this earth or off worth this cost and the hassle of putting up with English as a second language, the crowds of rude people, and the painted smiles all around the same old rides and sights.

    The only difference I can see between the Signature and the Signature Plus is that the Signature is blocked out during the two weeks around Christmas and New Years. Is it really worth $200 to have those days available? You would have to plan on going 2 or more times during those two weeks.
