The Disneyland theme parks have been closed since last March, and have yet to receive a reopening timeline or date. During this time, Annual Passholders have received automatic extensions on their passes and monthly payments have been put on pause.
Now, we have breaking and important news for Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders.
Disneyland Resort has announced that they are sunsetting the current Annual Passholder program, including the Disney Premier Passport. Disney has shared that they are developing new membership options that will be announced at a later date.
According to Disney, “In the next several days, we will begin the process of issuing appropriate refunds for eligible Disneyland Resort Annual Passports and sunsetting the current Annual Passport program due to the continued uncertainty of the pandemic and limitations and expected restrictions around the reopening of our theme parks.”
When it comes to Premier Passports, Premier Passholders will still have access to Disney World and V.I.PASSHOLDER Perks through March 31, 2021. Premier Passholders will also be able to renew into Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passes through April 30, 2021.
The President of Disneyland Ken Potrock stated, “We plan to use this time while we remain closed to develop new membership offerings that will utilize consumer insights to deliver choice, flexibility and value for our biggest fans. Once we have more information to share about future membership offerings, our Passholders will be the first to hear from us as we embark on this next chapter.”
AP’s who held active passes as of March 14, 2020 will continue to receive applicable discounts based on AP type for merch and food purchases throughout Downtown Disney and Buena Vista Street. And from January 18 – February 25, Passholder’s will receive a 30% discount on select merchandise at select Downtown Disney and Buena Vista locations Monday – Thursday.
Annual Passholders are being encouraged to stay connected with the Disneyland Annual Passholders Facebook page for more information.
This does not impact Disney World Annual Passes. Disney World Annual Passes are not for sale at this time, except for in select circumstances, which you can read more about here.
We will share more information with you as soon as it becomes available.
