Disneyland Says Goodbye to Annual Passes


Gone are the days of walking up to Disneyland or Disney’s California Adventure, stopping in for a churro or some Dole Whip, and heading home. After almost an entire year of being closed due to COVID-19, Disneyland announced on January 14 via Twitter and email that the Annual Passport program will come to a close.

Anyone considered a current Passholder, meaning their pass was valid when the parks closed in March of 2020, will receive a refund and will be able to continue using their benefits at Downtown Disney and other shopping/dining experiences.

Ken Potrock, the President of Disneyland Resort, said the following in a statement:

We want to thank our Annual Passholders for their understanding during this closure period. (…) We are currently developing new membership offerings that will utilize consumer insights to deliver choice, flexibility and value for our biggest fans.

Disneyland continues to be closed with no opening date in sight. In the meantime, Disneyland is currently being used as a mass vaccination site, which is pretty awesome. Disney will continue to update via official social media accounts as more decisions are made.
