The '2fer' deal returns to Disneyland Resort
Published: January 7, 2012 at 1:50 PM
2fer deal for Southern California residents is back.
Just like last year, the deal is no longer two days for the price of one, but two days for a discounted prices of $99. And you can go to your choice of Disneyland or Disney California Adventure each day, you don't have to spend one day at each, as you did under the old 2fer deal.
If you want to park hop, you can add that for $15 - making it a $114 for the two-day ticket. You also can add a third day for $30 - $129 without the park-hopper, and $144 with it.
Tickets are available online and the offer is good for Southern California residents within ZIP codes 90000-93599 and Northern Baja California residents within ZIP codes 21000-22999. You must use all days of the tickets by June 9, 2012 and there are blockout days from March 30 - April 15, as well as June 4-5.
June 4-5 are a Monday and Tuesday, which seem strange days for a blockout to me. Could that have anything to do with a Cars Land opening? (I have no idea, really - just taking a guess here. Insider tips welcomed.)
Update, from the submission queue: For Florida residents, Walt Disney World is offering a three-day, one-park-per-day "Go Wild" Pass for $99 (plus tax). You can add an additional day for $30 more to hit all four parks, or add park-hopping for $27.50. Blockout dates are February 18-20 and April 1-13, 2012.

The two bonus fast pass deal that now offer disney for each guest for stay of disney hotels are valid from january until june 10, that can be another signal.

I'm 99% sure the last '2fer' deal was the same as this and valid at either Disneyland or California Adventure for 2-days. It's been advertised as go to one park and then the other, but it hasn't been a requirement. I've even had friends a couple of years ago use the two admissions on the same day, essentially making it a one-day park hopper. However, they may have stopped allowing that.
June 4th and 5th are blockout dates because those are the last two days that the "Southern California Select" annual passports are valid before the summer blockout of June 6 to August 20. Historically, both parks have nearly reached capacity on those final days. It's the only two days in June that all five annual passport types are valid.

Nice explanation there, Eric. And yep, deal is the same as last year's, but with a later expiration date.

I'm taking advantage of the 3 day park hopper, although the So Cal annual passport at $269 is tempting (a bit over $100 more expensive). I might buy the So Cal AP in the fall after Carsland opens and Buena Vista Street is completed. Or maybe I'll wait until 2013 when the lines die down.

This may have an obvious answer, but do you have to show an ID to get the discount or can you recite a zip code in SoCal to get it?

You must show proof that you live in one of the zip codes.

You have to show ID when you buy at the ticket booths, but just need to submit the zip code when you buy online. They can ask you for ID when you use the ticket to get in, but I've never had anyone do that with the passes I've bought.
Disclaimer: I have an annual pass and have used the resident passes for my wife and kids, so I suspect that my using my AP might have been enough for the gate CMs. I'd like to hear from non-APs if they've had to show ID with resident tickets bought and printed online.

I have been ID'd in the past for the COSTCO deal (they want to make sure the same person used the same tickets all four times). They could ID you. You're taking a chance. That's why I always bring my receipt for in case something happens and I would make my case that it wasn't my fault, I could exchange the tickets for something else so it wouldn't be total loss.
