Disneyland stops sale of Southern California Annual Passport

Posted at 9:26 AM, Nov 20, 2017

(KGTV) - As Disneyland's popularity continues to rise, the theme park is taking a step in possibly restructuring its ticketing plans by eliminating its Southern California annual pass.

The Orange County Register reported Monday that the $469 pass will no longer be available for new customers, but those currently with the pass or have had their pass recently expire will be given an option to renew.

Disneyland officials did not cite specific reasons for the Southern California Passport's removal.

The newspaper speculates the move to discontinue the Southern California Passport may not be a permanent one. The Passport was removed in 2014, only to be added back two years later.

Disneyland's Southern California Select Passport, priced at $339, is still available for purchase.

Prices for Disneyland tickets and annual passes increased earlier this year, and a report showed ticket prices for "The Happiest Place on Earth" have gone up 70 percent in the last 10 years.
