The bigger discounts are at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, which has a relatively smaller base of local annual passholders to boost attendance during the "off" season, which — thanks to all of Disney's various offers, deals, and special events — can seem just as busy as the "on" seasons of summers and the holidays anymore.
You can find the details of the Florida Resident Discover Disney tickets on Disney World's website:
Tickets must be purchased by June 20 and used (on non-consecutive days) by June 24. Proof of Florida residency is required.
For the Disneyland Resort, the SoCal Resident ticket deal is:
Tickets go on sale today and must be purchased by May 21. The tickets are blocked out March 23 through April 8. The offer is valid only for visitors who can prove residency in ZIP codes 90000-93599 in Southern California or ZIP codes 21000-22999 in Northern Baja California.
If you want to find the "best" days to use these tickets at Disneyland, look at Disneyland's Annual Pass Blockout Calendar and find a date when the SoCal Select Passes are blocked out but that isn't a "Peak" price day for one-day tickets, as shown on Disneyland's ticket website. Saturdays are often good, or maybe the start of Pixar Fest on April 13.
Or just wait for a rainy day and hit Disneyland on one of the few remaining days when Southern Californians are not crowding the parks.Tweet
Do I read correctly, "Non-consecutive days." That could pose a problem if coming from even Jacksonville, 2-3 hours away. Would that encourage visitor to go to another park (Universal?) on day in -between?
Last year's promotion was no doubt a lot more popular than they expected (see what happened on the last weekend of the promotion), plus Disney probably felt that the Paradise Pier closure in itself wouldn't deter many people from visiting.
The 3-day, 1-park per day ticket costs $149. The 3-day, park hopper ticket costs $189.
So, a price increase of 37% for the one park, and 29% for the park hopper. Pretty steep increase, especially with what will be closed in both parks....
I can still get a Knott's SP ($92), Six Flags SP ($84.99), SeaWorld SD Fun Card ($89.99) or Universal California Neighbor Pass ($129) for less than the cheapest DLR offer ($159).
LEGOLAND AP is the same price as the Cheapest offer - $159
So I can get 2 days at Disneyland (Why waste a day at DCA with so much closed?) or a year at another park. Seems like an easy decision, especially with kids and needing to buy multiple tickets.
Or for a bit less ($238.99) as the 3 Day DLR ParkHopper ($244), I can get the Knott's Gold Pass good for both parks, along with the all you can eat and drink options. ($92/$110 + $29.99 +$99)
Here's a fun article about Disney, though:
