Disneyland Discontinues Southern California Annual Passes

Bad news for SoCal residents. Disneyland has discontinued the Southern California annual passes.

According to WDW News Today, the pass has been removed from the Disneyland site, likely in anticipation of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

This move is not surprising, and indeed was expected to come sooner or later, as Disneyland will be hosting massive crowds once Galaxy’s Edge opens in 2019. This is one step in an effort to reduce crowding in Disneyland, especially on weekends, when millions of locals are expected to descend on the area to be among the first to visit the newest land. The crowds will be even worse since Galaxy’s Edge will open in Disneyland before it opens in Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World, so for a few months it will be the destination for Star Wars fans.

The pass was priced at $469 (plus tax) and allowed for admission 215 days of the year, save for blackouts at peak times and on holidays.

This is not the first time that Disney has discontinued the passes. They were discontinued in 2014 in anticipation of Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary, and went on sale once again in 2016.
