park-specific blockout calendars, the Disneyland Resort has thrown another change into its annual pass program. But we're willing to bet that no fans saw this one coming.Just one week after announcing
Disneyland is offering annual passholders something as rare as June thunderstorm in Anaheim — summer ticket discounts. Starting June 11, passholders can buy one-day Park Hopper tickets to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure for up to 41 percent off the regular price.
That makes the tickets $89, $99, or $109, depending upon whether you visit on a Value, Regular, or Peak attendance day. The normal prices for one-day Park Hoppers at the Disneyland Resort are $147, $167, and $185.
You only can buy the tickets on days that your annual pass is valid, and you must accompany the ticketholder into the park, so you can't use these as discounted blockout day tickets. And there's a limit to two tickets per day per passholder and tickets must be used on the day of purchase, so opportunities for APers to become discount ticket brokers will be limited. (You know some will try, though.)
As for those blockout dates, Disneyland is lifting a bunch of them, too. SoCal Select passholders are getting an extra week and a half before their summer blockout kicks in, with admission now valid on Monday through Friday next week and Monday through Wednesday the following week. SoCal APers get next Thursday and Friday added, along with Tuesday through Thursday the week after that. Deluxe passholders get next Friday added, too.
All of the extra dates come before the official opening of Pixar Pier on June 23. But since Disneyland crowd levels are pretty much dictated by the AP blockout calendar, expect much heavier than expected crowds next week and the week after as APers cram a few more visits in before the start of the summer season.Tweet
