Disneyland introduces park-specific annual pass blockout calendars

When the Disneyland Resort last raised ticket prices in February 2018, the company said the pricing strategy was in part to help "better spread attendance throughout the year," and also stated that more changes were on the way for the annual passport program.

Along with the latest price increase, Disney also began listing admission to Disneyland, admission to Disney California Adventure, and the ability to visit both parks on the same day as three separate passholder benefits. As we noted at the time, this change implied that there may be a time when a certain pass type does not include admission to one park or the other, or does not include park hopper benefits.

That time is now.

Saturday morning, the Disneyland Resort introduced park-specific blockout calendars for the annual passport program. Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park now have separate schedules of blockout dates, and there are now days where some passholders can visit Disney California Adventure, but are blocked out from visiting Disneyland. Universal Studios Orlando introduced a similar system to manage passholder access to its three parks following the opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

A Disneyland Resort spokesperson tells MousePlanet,

"As our business evolves, this is the first step in reshaping our Annual Pass program, which will better manage the guest experience and allow all Disneyland Resort visitors to have a great visit, particularly as we look forward to the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in summer 2019."

This new blockout schedule applies to all Disneyland Resort annual passports purchased, renewed or activated on or after June 2, 2018. Annual passport prices remain unchanged, and there are no changes to the very popular monthly payment plan.

While the new schedule is effective now, the blockout calendars don't actually diverge for another year. Through next May, Disneyland and DCA have the same blockout dates, regardless of when the annual pass was purchased or activated. But come June 2019, just ahead of the anticipated opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland, everything changes.

Disney usually publishes the blockout calendar on a rolling 12-month basis, and the calendar was posted through the end of May 2019. With this announcement, Disney released the full calendar for June 2019, but not beyond, so we can only look at one month's worth of dates to see how this change impacts the different passport levels.

For June 2018, Deluxe annual passports offer 25 days of admission to both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. In June 2019, that number drops to just 13 days of park-hopper access to both parks. However, the new schedule has no June blockout dates for Disney California Adventure in 2019, meaning those passholders can visit on previously-blocked-out Saturdays.

The situation is worse for Southern California and Southern California Select passports. This June, a SoCal Select passholder is valid at both parks on four days, before the summer blockout season begins. In 2019, the pass is valid at DCA on three days, and is not valid at Disneyland at all. The legacy Southern California passport, which is no longer available for purchase, is valid at both parks on 19 days in June 2018. In June 2019, the pass is valid 20 days at DCA, but not valid at Disneyland at all.

There are currently no changes to the blockout dates for Signature or Signature Plus annual passports, which retain park hopper access on all days those passes are otherwise valid.

For Deluxe passholders, the good news is that they get more Disney days with their pass in June 2019. The bad news is that they get fewer Disneyland days. Some passholders may consider that an acceptable trade-off, especially as this opens up summer Saturdays, dates that are typically blocked out to all but the highest tier of passholder.

For SoCal and SoCal Select passholders, at least for June 2019, their Disneyland Resort annual passport is really a Disney California Adventure pass. Again, we have just one month of data to look at, and it's from the summer season when the lowest-tier passes are usually blocked entirely. But it is reasonable to expect this pattern to continue for the first months that Galaxy's Edge is open, and passholders who just can't wait to visit Batuu will have to buy a one-day ticket to Disneyland.

In previous articles, we noted that the strategy for managing the crowds around the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge would have to include a way to manage the crush of Disneyland annual passholders eager to get a first look at the land. Of course, any such plan has to meet the expectations of day guests while keeping the loyalty of the annual passholders. It's a delicate balancing act between day guests who can spend nearly $200 just to get into the gates, and passholders who spend hundreds on their annual pass, and then hundreds more on limited-edition popcorn buckets, Instagram-worth churros, and the latest must-have millennial-rose-champagne-gold accessories.

Giving passholders even greater access to Disney California Adventure, with all of its seasonal promotions, food festivals, and popular rides (Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout is still the top-rated attraction at the Disneyland Resort) is a smart way to keep passholders on-property and spending money. How the decision to restrict access to Disneyland ultimately impacts AP renewal rates and attendance will likely play a major role on what additional changes the park makes to the program in the months ahead.

MousePlanet reader MidwayManiac shared that they purchased Deluxe annual passports back in February, and intended to activate them just before the printed "activate by" date of December 31, 2018. The passports read, "Enjoy over 300 preselected days of admission to BOTH Disneyland Resort Theme Parks." Disney quietly changed annual passport marketing earlier this year, eliminating any reference to the number of days a particular pass type was valid, but cards already on display at Disney Stores or other authorized ticket outlets often carried the older language.

With this policy change, if this reader activates their annual passports in December, the passes will be subject to the new blockout calendar. While acknowledging that the passports bore the usual "subject to change without notice" language, MidwayManiac pointed out, "I now have Deluxe passes whose terms are considerably different than at the point of sale and will be 7 of the 12 months active. Nice bait and switch Disney."

Several other readers suggested that, given the drastic change between the advertised benefits and the new blockout dates, Disney might make an exception and allow this reader to return the Deluxe annual passports before activating them if they so wished. If any other readers have a similar situation, and are now rethinking their decision to activate previously-purchased annual passport cards, it's always worth taking your concerns directly to Disneyland managers to discuss your options.

Last call before summer blockouts

While everyone is currently fixated on the 2019 summer blockouts, the 2018 summer blockout season is here now!

This Thursday, June 7, is the last day that Southern California Select annual passholders can visit the Disneyland Resort until August 20. Holders of the legacy Southern California passport still have a few more weeks to use their pass on selected weekdays, but as of June 29 are also blocked out through August 20.

Saturday blockouts are now in effect for Deluxe annual passholders until August 18.

The looming blockouts mean this coming week may be extra busy with passholders hoping to get their one last look at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure for the summer, as there are no blockouts at all this Monday through Thursday, and our partners at TouringPlans.com project those four days to be "6" to "7" on their 1-to-10 scale.

2019

  • D23 Expo – August 23–25, 2019. Tickets go on sale August 23, 2018 via the event website.

We also recommend checking the convention calendar at the Anaheim/Orange County Visitor and Convention Bureau website. When looking at that site, remember to note both the number of people and the number of rooms resulting from each convention. A gathering of 25,000 people booking few room nights (indicating most will be driving in to the area for their meeting) can impact traffic around the resort much more than a crowd of 25,000 staying in area hotels. Of course, that second group is going to make finding a hotel room more difficult (and possibly more expensive), so it's best to book your own room as early as possible if you see that a big convention is in town during your trip.

Current Discounts & Promotions

Disneyland prices as of February 11, 2018.

Note: MousePlanet does not edit past Updates to reflect price increases; for up-to-date prices, check the most recent Disneyland Resort Update. Several current promotions offer discounted admission to the Disneyland Resort. For your convenience, we have grouped the discount offers based on the number of days the tickets are valid. Check out the category that best matches the amount of time you plan to spend at the resort, and pick the offer that works best for you. And keep those tips coming—let us know if you find a better or different offer, so we can share it with other readers!

This first section is a list of discounts on ticket-only purchases. Though it has become more common in recent years, Disneyland tickets are rarely offered at deep discounts unless you are a resident of Southern California or Northern Mexico. For residents outside that area, the best discounts available tend to be simple advance purchase discounts. If you know of any additional discounts, offers, promotions, or contests that should be listed in this section, drop us a line. Note, we are no longer listing offers from the Anaheim-Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau, as their convenience fee negates any savings.

Don't get scammed! Never buy tickets from an unofficial or secondary outlet, such as through eBay or Craigslist. Never rent or purchase tickets from people approaching you outside the gates stating they have remaining days or leftover tickets. This practice is against the terms of use for Disneyland admission, and may result in denial of entry. It is also common for criminals to shoplift inactivated Disney theme park tickets from supermarkets to resell them. There is no way to determine if these tickets are valid until you try to use them to enter the parks. Only purchase Disney theme park tickets directly from Disney, an authorized seller, or travel agency like MousePlanet travel partner Get Away Today.

Additional Discounts

Did we miss an offer? If you know of an authorized discount on Disneyland Resort tickets, standing offers for Annual Passholders from non-Disney vendors, or other promotions which might interest our readers, please drop us a note!

Discounts for:

Everyone

Purchase with Purchase offers – Disneyland Resort shops frequently offer a reduced–price souvenir (often a tote bag, watch, or blanket) with a qualifying minimum purchase. These are offered at Disney-operated stores only, and selection may vary by location.

Disney usually allows customers to purchase more than one of the offers in a qualifying transaction, so if you spend $40 or more you can buy both items currently available if you wish. If you're a passholder, the minimum purchase is calculated after your discount, and your discount does not apply to the promotional item.


Landry's Select Club – members of the Landry's Select Club get priority seating at the Rainforest Cafe when available (which makes a huge difference on busy days). This club replaces the former Rainforest Cafe Safari Club, and runs on a point-based system that gives you a $25 gift certificate after you spend $250. Membership now costs $25, but comes with a $25 birthday reward. We recommend that you pre-purchase your membership before your visit so you can take advantage of the priority seating benefit.


Character Dining Vouchers – discounted character dining vouchers are available for purchase online, in advance of your trip, through Get Away Travel.
