Disneyland Unveils 2016 SoCal Resident Ticket Deals
The Disneyland Resort this morning released details about its Southern California Resident ticket offer for 2016. The deal gives residents in the Los Angeles, San Diego and Tijuana metro areas a discount on multi-day tickets to the Disneyland Resort theme parks. This year's prices are:
- 2-day, one park per day: $149 (regularly $185)
- 2-day Park Hopper ticket: $189 (regularly $225)
- 3-day, one park per day: $179 (regularly $235)
- 3-day Park Hopper ticket: $219 (regularly $275)
The one-day, one-park tickets are up $10 from last year's resident ticket deal, and the park hoppers are up $11.
The tickets may be purchased on Disneyland's website and must be bought before May 19 and used by May 26. Proof of residency is required to use the tickets. If you are a local resident and want to upgrade to an annual pass, Disneyland's Southern California Select Annual Passport is good for 174 days over the next 12 months and costs $329.
Theme parks typically offer their best deals of the year in the "off season" before school vacations start in spring and summer. For comparison, here are some of the other resident ticket and seasonal pass deals now being offered by other major theme parks in Southern California:
- Six Flags Magic Mountain Season Pass (good through Dec. 31, 2016): $76.99 (includes admission to all Six Flags parks across the country)
- SeaWorld San Diego Fun Card (admission through Dec. 30, 2016, with two blockout dates): $79
- Knott's Season Pass (good through Dec. 31, 2016): $87 (the Gold Pass includes Soak City and costs $105, the Platinum Pass includes all Cedar Fair parks across the country and costs $204)
- Universal Studios Hollywood California Resident Annual Pass (good for 168 days over 12 months): $139 (The California Resident Plus pass is good for 235 days and costs $199)

I'm honestly surprised that they are running the promotion again this year, but I guess it is one way to lure visitors into the park even with numerous attractions under refurbishment. Maybe enough people will go for this that Disneyland won't have to report an attendance drop in 2016 despite the opening of Wizarding World of Harry Potter just up the state.
I'm no longer a CA resident, but my CA family renewed their passes so I'll be interested to hear what the crowd levels are throughout the year.
I've been waiting for this discount since October (http://www.themeparkinsider.com/discussion/thread.cfm?page=822), but now that it's here, I'm not feeling especially excited, given the impending closures of the railroad and Rivers of America attractions, the continuing El Nino storms rolling through Southern California, the crowding from the 60th anniversary, Star Wars, and people trying to get in their last rides on the Mark Twain and Disneyland Railroad.
Is it anticipated that regular admission will be rising in price any time soon?
I wouldn't go so far as to say that Disneyland has too much stuff closed, especially stuff that really matters. The Jungle Cruise really is in desperate need of repair, and the Rivers of a America were closed when I visited Disneyland but I still had quite a fulfilling visit. No offense, Robert.
There's enough worthy things to see despite the closure of some minor attractions in Frontierland to make way for Star Wars Land. People might spend more time in California Adventure, which has plenty of good attractions. Unfortunately, the Frozen musical will open much later after the SoCal Ticket deal is over. Maybe better to skip this year and go next year if you must see this new musical. Or convert to an Annual Pass.
Disneyland has been getting a really bad rap on this site with people making assumptions that many attractions are closed and those that are closed are of major significance.
I do not want to be negative, but California Adventure to me is still not much of a park. Cars Land is amazing, no doubt. I think it might be the best "land" in any Disney park. I also enjoy walking down Buena Vista Street and I enjoy walking through the Grizzly Peak area. But, I am too old to go on the ropes trail thing and I don't want to get wet on that water ride, so the Grizzly area is just a pretty place for me. I like Soarin, but I don't think it's the greatest thing ever. Aside from this, California Adventure only really has Tower of Terror and the version there is not as good as the one in Florida. I think Paradise Pier is so ugly. Bug's Land area has no appeal to me and their Hollywood area is junky. People keep saying that Disney fixed California Adventure but I think there is a lot of work that needs to be done. I think Star Wars land should have been built there. There is a lot of stuff they could have torn down to make way for Star Wars land in California Adventure.
