Disneyland's Southern California resident discount returns

January 7, 2020, 12:06 PM · Disneyland's annual Southern California resident deal is back. The resort announced this year's ticket discount deal this morning, where locals can visit Disneyland or Disney California Adventure for three days for $199.

That's the price for a one-park-per-day ticket. If you want to add the Park Hopper option to the SoCal resident deal, the total ticket price is $254. Tickets must be purchased by May 18 and used by May 21, but you don't have to use them on consecutive days.

Adults and kids prices are the same for this deal, but Disneyland is extending the offer to kids visiting from outside Southern California, too. You can find the $199 three-day kids ticket from our travel partner, which also is offering three-day tickets to adults outside Southern California for $278.70 and Park Hoppers for $325.70. Both are a savings of over $20 versus buying from Disney.

Disneyland typically offers its Southern California discount to boost attendance during what's usually one of the slower times of year at the resort. But this year Disney is opening two new attractions during the offer period, including Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance on January 17 and the new Magic Happens parade on February 28. In addition, Disney California Adventure will be offering its Lunar New Year Celebration from January 17 through February 9 and then its Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival from February 28 through April 21, 2020.

Robert, what's the thinking about why Disney is having a promotional deal for local residents with no blockout dates, unblocking all passholder levels on opening day for the new Star Wars ride, and opening the new ride on a holiday weekend?

Have they learned their lesson from how few people attended Disneyland over the summer for the opening of Galaxy's Edge, and don't care how crowded the park is on opening day or the first couple of months?
