Walt Disney World's announcement of its local resident ticket deal, the Disneyland Resort has revealed its 2019 discount for residents of Southern California and Northern Baja California.Following
Disneyland in November had announced an early-season 2019 ticket deal that was open to everyone, so this is another offer designed to entice locals into making a few more trips to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure this winter and spring.
The Southern California Resident Ticket Offer is a three-day, one-park per day ticket for $179 and a three-day Park Hopper ticket for $234.
That compares to $210 for a three-day ticket under the previously announced "Limited Time Special Ticket Offer," or $260 for the Park Hopper version. The regular price for three-day, one-park-per-day ticket to the Disneyland Resort is $280, with the Park Hopper option bumping that up to $330, so you are looking at about $100 in savings over the regular price with the SoCal discount.
To get it, you must be a resident of Southern California or Northern Baja California in Mexico and be able to present a valid government ID proving that at the gate. Tickets can be used starting January 7 and expire May 23. The tickets are blocked out from April 14 through April 22. Unlike the November deal, it does not appear that all days must be sued within 13 days of the ticket's first use. (Note to self: May 22 and 23 are gonna be packed at the resort, as people look to use their unused days on these tickets.)
The local resident tickets will go on sale January 7, at Disneyland ticket booths and online on the Disneyland website. (FYI, that link won't go live until the 7th.)
Obviously, these ticket deals won't get you in the park for the new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land, which opens sometime this summer. That's the whole point, as the deals are designed to entice potential guests who might otherwise put off their visits until Galaxy's Edge opens. But Disney is offering several new attractions and events early in the year to sweeten the deal, including the debut of the Mickey's Mix Magic nighttime show and the "Get Your Ears On - A Mickey and Minnie Celebration" on January 18. (You can read more about 2019's new theme park attractions on our preview page.)
Hey, the more people queued at Guest Relations to complain about something, the shorter the lines are in the rest of the park, right?

"Will you refund the difference to So Cal residents who bought the previously announced discounted three-day ticket offer as Christmas presents, only to find out now that had they waited, they could have gotten cheaper tickets?"
