Modifications and Cancellations

Annual Passports

Annual Passholders have been among our most loyal and valued guests, and we want to thank them for their understanding during this closure period.

Due to the continued uncertainty of the pandemic and limitations around the reopening of our California theme parks, we will be issuing appropriate refunds for eligible Disneyland Resort Annual Passports and sunsetting the current Annual Passport program. Please visit Disneyland.com/PassportRefund for refund information.

Although sunsetting the Annual Passport program may be disappointing to some, we are excited about what’s ahead and know that our future is bright. We are developing new membership offerings that will utilize consumer insights to deliver choice, flexibility and value for our biggest fans. Once we have more information to share about future membership offerings, our Annual Passholders will be the first to hear from us.

Annual Passholders who held active Passports as of March 14, 2020 will continue to receive applicable discounts based on their passport type for merchandise and food & beverages at select Downtown Disney District and Buena Vista Street locations until the new membership offerings are announced. View important details and restrictions.

As an added benefit, starting January 18 through March 11, 2021, those Annual Passholders will receive a 30% discount on select merchandise at select locations in Downtown Disney District and Buena Vista Street, Monday through Thursday. For more details, visit Disneyland.com/APSpecialOffers.

We encourage our Annual Passholders to stay connected with the Disneyland Annual Passholders’ Facebook page as we plan to continue our Annual Passport communication and digital content with special opportunities to come, until new membership offerings are announced.
