Disneyland ended its previous Annual Pass program earlier this year. After that, everyone with an active Disneyland Resort Annual Passport as of March 14, 2020, became a Legacy Passholder. Currently, Legacy Passholders get a few perks, such as the ability to register for exclusive events, photo opportunities, and more throughout the resort. Legacy Passholders can also use their former AP discounts on food and merchandise throughout the Disneyland Resort, including in the theme parks. It is expected that these Legacy Passholder perks to remain in place until further notice or until the new AP/membership program is introduced.

Disneyland President Ken Potrock has confirmed that a reimagined Annual Pass program will be coming later this year! He stated in the D23 podcast:

“… we had sunsetted the Annual Pass Program, and we needed to do that really for two incredibly important reasons. One because of the capacity constraints that I told you about previously and two because we thought this was a great opportunity for us to reimagine an Annual Pass program that wasn’t just built on the last couple of decades but was built on how our Guests and our fans wanted to use the parks going forward.

We’re working on that right now and we’ll clearly be launching something before the end of the year, but I think its gonna be an exciting new program that I think people and our biggest fans and quite honestly our most loyal fans will be very responsive too.”

This is excellent news for Disneyland fans, as ticket prices can increase when you want to visit the park repeatedly, especially after it has remained closed for over a year!

The Disneyland Resort officially reopened its theme parks to California residents on April 30 and is scheduled to welcome back those living out of state on June 15.

No news on when Walt Disney World will begin selling new Annual Passes yet. Although Disney World did not end its Annual Pass program, it no longer sells new Annual Passes.

Disney has not released any further details on the new Annual Passholder program, so we will have to wait and see what Disney has in store. As Ken Potrock stated, though we know this will be a truly reimagined program built off of a lot of research. Hopefully, this means Disneyland Annual Passes will return bigger and better than ever!

Are you excited to hear that Annual Passes are returning to Disneyland this year? Let us know in the comments!
