Annual Passholder Price Increase OFFICIAL POST: To avoid duplicate posts, please post ALL news, questions, and discussion about the Oct 4 changes to the Annual Pass program on this post. Thank you!The Disneyland Resort now offers the following passes:Disney Southern California Select $329 (most likely tons of blockout dates)Disney Deluxe: $  More...

As someone who doesn't live in SoCal and uses my AP only a couple or a few times a year, the increase really doesn't bother me at all. I have a Premium AP. The current cost of that pass was $779. New Signature Pass is $849 and it includes free PhotoPass access. This is actually a better deal than what I currently have for me. (I did just renew my Premium for $719, so I won't be getting the new pass, anyway.). Not everyone lives locally and can be at the parks 200 days each year. I have never gone during the Christmas break because, frankly, the crowds have scared me off. That is why we do thanksgiving when we want the holiday vibe. Don't the holidays begin around November 11th each year?  So that is about two months' worth of holidays for those who wish to enjoy that time.  If I were to renew my pass next year, I would simply get the Signature pass. I don't need the highest level just for two weeks at Christmas. I understand those who aren't happy. But, I do think it doesn't have to be as horrible as everyone is making it out to be. Disney is a business. They are in the business of making money, right along with letting you make memories. The new normal for some may have to be to see Disneyland as the treat that it is for much of the country or world who does not have it in their backyard. Hopefully, our lives are full of so many things. Disney is one part of it. It shouldn't be everything. Not trying to tick anyone off here. I do think their timing stinks with this. But, just wanted to show  that there is another perspective and way of looking at this. 😊 - MeridaFan  3623.3 #37 10:51AM
Yes this makes sense but for people who live in So Cal I fell the photo pass should be an option because I really never use it.  - AlyssaDisneyland  17.7 #0 10:54AM
AP prices have gone up every year. SoCal people have had the choice of two APs that no one in the rest of the world have been able to purchase. It is not a necessity for people to buy the most expensive pass for themselves.  So you do have other options that others do not. They also have given special discounted tickets to SoCal people throughout the year. I think those are great options for those who live down there and cannot afford the more expensive passes. Again? This is another viewpoint. And I realize there is only one SoCal pass available now. And I have no idea if they will continue with the other one indefinitely. Just trying to point out that there are actually some positives for some people here. Tourists bring in a lot of money to Disney. Lots of us enjoy using the Photo Pass system.  - MeridaFan  3623.3 #37 11:03AM
MeridaFan - pikarich  4695.2 #24 11:07AM
Correction I go 201 times - pikarich  4695.2 #24 11:09AM
I could not agree more, MeridaFan.  Also, it doesn't have to be all or nothing!  I understand the AP price is high, but that doesn't mean people have to swear off Disney forever.  Some people would kill to go just once a year. - Thumper13  489.0 #409 11:11AM
MeridaFan...I agree with you. We live in Oregon and, although we're not happy about the increase, we see why it was needed. I would have liked to know ahead of time, though. We still think you get your money's worth of quality, family entertainment. And if some of this increase goes to pay cast members and adds more jobs for new cast members and Star Wars Land for everyone I'm all for it. That said...we don't have young kids at home anymore and don't have to pay for them, along with all the extras while in the park. I can definitely see and agree with both sides. You have to make the best decision for your own family.  - GrandCircleTour  343.5 #658 11:26AM
We have 2 AP holders who renewed and upgraded to Deluxe in June, so they will probably need to rethink their budgets for the next time. We are having issues with budget and rooms right now... Does anyone know why there can't be a 6th person in a hotel room at the resort for a standard or premium room like Woods/Courtyard at the Grand Californian? We are wanting to be a group of 6 adults and a second room for just one additional person just seems excessive! (I think room occupancy max is 5 people?.) Mom has her heart set on the Grand, but we'd only be staying the one night with Disneyland potentially open until 12am, so only about 6-8 hours of sleep. We'll get a great AP discount, but trying to convince everyone to pay isn't easily justified for everyone! Any ideas would be appreciated. TIA! 😁😻 - Catski23  13.3 #8708 11:46AM
I just genuinely wish they had a kids AP, it just doesn't seem right that my 3 yo will be paying the same ticket price and can't go on anything other than Fantasyland rides.  - bellapistola  157.7 #2546 1:30AM
That makes a lot of sense to me.  - MeridaFan  3623.3 #37 2:23AM
agree! - MsTikiMermadam  541.3 #364 2:47AM
I was just thinking that about kids. - minniemonika  174.0 #0 8:17AM
I was just thinking this. With a baby on the way it just seems funny that I will have to buy an annual pass for them at 3. Really what is the difference between 2-3. They are still restricted to the same attractions.  - DisneyBrideΒ°OΒ°  438.9 #467 10:06AM
Excellent point!  My boys were about 6-7 years old when they started going on enough rides to make the price worth it. - DisneyPiratePrincess  211.0 #1815 10:34AM
Me too! They should have a kids 3 to 9 AP!  - DCMAGurl  215.3 #1751 11:40AM
Totally agree!! - 1Princess3Princes  558.3 #345 12:23PM
Yes, that's what kills us, paying for 4 is tough. Not like my single days. - brigeet  449.3 #460 3:27PM
Where does that leave me with my deluxe passes? We have 5 deluxe due for renewal on Jan 6th, 2016 and had planned on renewing... - abmickey  67.8 #4102 6:53PM

Hi guys,This might be a long shot but i'm throwing this out there anyway! Me and my boyfriend have tickets to Mickeys Halloween Party on October 14th and unfortunately something has come up that night and we're wondering if anyone has two tickets they would like to trade for that night.

I know there has got to be other guide maps collectors out there.  I've been collecting for years and I finally made a blog that features my whole collection and also shows what guides I'm missing.  Check it out, I don't make money off of it, I do it for the love of the guide maps and in hopes to find other collectors out there.

I have collected many of these. Probably mostly in the '90s.  - Quiweez  91.1 #3640 11:05PM

#TRADE - Anyone interested in trading first release Blue Diamond pin for this LE1000 pin? - One of my favorite pins from last week's merchandise event. It was the #2 item on my wish list. The 60th Anniversary Key set was my first choice. Was able to get both, very happy.

Can you post a picture of the key set?  I'm very curious to see what it looks like.  :) - MariFICENT  167.9 #2382 3:30PM
