After many reports across social media; Disney officially increased the price of Annual Passports at both the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort today.

I’ve tried to capture all the information below; but please keep checking back as I continue to update this post.

DISNEYLAND

Southern California Select Passport ($329 + tax)
Featuring blockout dates, passholders can receive 10% off resort dining and merchandise in the theme parks, on-site hotels and company-owned stores in Downtown Disney. Parking can currently be added for renewals only for an additional $199.

The Disneyland Premium Passport is no longer available for purchase or renewal; and has been split into two new passes.
Both of the Disney Signature Passports come with parking, 15% off resort dining and 20% off merchandise in the theme parks, on-site hotels and company-owned stores in Downtown Disney. Additionally, these feature Digital PhotoPass Plus. At each PhotoPass location, Signature passholders can present their annual pass to be scanned as a PhotoPass card and obtain digital downloads of all their photos linked to their account, until 365 days after the photo was taken.

Disney Signature Passport ($849 + tax)
This pass is blocked out during the two busiest weeks of the year (Dec 19 – Jan 3), but passholders still receive parking, 15% off resort dining and 20% off merchandise in the theme parks, on-site hotels and company-owned stores in Downtown Disney.

Disney Signature Plus Passport ($1049 + tax)
This pass offers all the benefits of the standard Disney Signature Passport, but with 365 days of admission.

Additionally, theme-park parking has increased by $1 to $18 per day, and Downtown Disney now offers only two-hours of complimentary parking, with an additional two hours available with validation through seeing a movie at the AMC Cinemas or from a table-service restaurant within Downtown Disney. Otherwise it’s $12 per hour.
