Get the best deal on Disneyland's new summer discount

June 6, 2023, 1:28 PM · California residents now may buy three-day admission tickets to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure for as little as $235.

The Disneyland Resort has introduced its latest local resident ticket deal. The tickets are valid from June 12 through September 28, and guests must make advance reservations to use the tickets. Disneyland is selling the ticket on its website for $249, but our travel partner has them for just $235 ($233 plus a $2 service fee).

These tickets are valid for visits on Mondays through Thursdays. If you want to add the weekends to visit on any day during the summer, that three-day California resident ticket price is $299 through Disneyland and just $283 through our ticket partner. You can add the Park Hopper option to either ticket for an additional $60 per ticket through Disney or $55 via our partner.

A Disney Genie+ add-on also is available via our ticket partner, as well. Again, here is that link.

Reservations will continue to be subject to availability, but as of right now, all eligible dates are open on Disneyland's website.

Disneyland earlier this year offered a three-day ticket deal for Southern California residents that started at $204 for one park per day tickets, on weekdays only from January 9 through May 25. This deal is about $13-15 per day more, but is open to all California residents and provides the option for weekend visits, if you choose the $283/299 ticket.

Disneyland's seasonal resident tickets effectively provide an alternative to the Magic Key program for local residents who have not been able to or have not wanted to buy one of those annual passes. The resident discount tickets are limited in the number of times you can use them, but can provide more flexibility with fewer blockout restrictions than the Enchant and Imagine Key passes, which are blocked out for most of the summer.

During the period covered by the new resident tickets, Disney California Adventure will debut Rogers: The Musical, on June 30. And the resort's popular Halloween Time festivities will start on September 1. In addition, the Disney 100 celebrations continues throughout the summer, with the new Wondrous Journeys and World of Color - One nighttime spectaculars at Disneyland and DCA, respectively.

Again, her is the link to our partner's Disneyland tickets page for this deal, as well as other discounts for out-of-state visitors.

Maybe someone can answer this question about reserving tickets. Since it's a reservation does that mean Disney caps how many guests can visit that day? Example being they only allow 50,000 people and no more than that. Because it seems like the parks are packed like they were before Covid, so why reserve a ticket for entry since they're cramming the parks to capacity.

Disney does cap how many people can reserve on each ticket type each day. So even though Magic Key holders might be "sold out," individually purchased tickets might be available to reserve on that date. So this is as much a method for controlling the mix of people in the park as it is for controlling the number of visitors overall.

The effect has been to extend the amount of time that people visit the parks, on average, especially for passholders. The overall number of visitors - at Disneyland, at least - might be lower than it was pre-reservations, but because they are showing up earlier in the day, the park is more crowded for longer.

Thanks Robert. Now how do I get on Rise of the Resistance?

I would tell you my trick, but Rey swore me to secrecy. ;^)

That Rogers The Musical Artwork looks like it was handled by an intern. Really odd to see something like that pushed out by Disney.

@AngryDuck - I actually think the artwork captures the campiness that "Rogers the Musical" is supposed to exude.
