The Southern California Resident Deal at Disneyland Resort is back, and it’s offering locals a sweet deal to enjoy the park! Beginning Jan. 7, 2019, eligible guests may visit Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park for as little as $60 per day with the purchase of a three-day, one-park per day ticket. In addition to this special ticket offer, the three Hotels of the Disneyland Resort are offering special rates on standard and premium rooms for a limited time.This year they are offering three days, one park each for $179 with one magic morning access – that’s about $60 per park per day! (Non-resident pay $270). To compare, single day passes can range from $91-$124 depending on if it’s a peak day or for a child. There is also a 3-Day Hopper option for $234 which is about $78 per day. (Non-resident pay $315). Either way you look at it, it’s like getting a third day for the price of two! What I like about this deal is it gives my family an affordable option to enjoy the park without committing to an annual pass. We can spend hours exploring the park, and they’re always updating the park. Plus the three day deal includes one Magic Morning giving you an extra hour on select days to play before it is open to the public. For a limited time, Southern California residents can select from these specially-priced ticket options and save:
- 3-day, 1-park per day ticket for $179
- 3-day Park Hopper ticket for $234
These three-day tickets are available for purchase from Jan. 7 through May 20, 2019, and may be used on a consecutive three-day visit or three separate days throughout the travel period. Tickets expire on May 23, 2019 and blockout dates of April 14 through April 22, 2019 apply.*
Starting Jan. 7, Southern California residents may purchase tickets at www.Disneyland.com/SoCal and at Disneyland Resort ticket booths. Guests who purchase tickets online may print their tickets at home. Proof of residency is required for purchase and theme park admission.
