For those who might be considering a visit to the Disney parks on both coasts, a new option has recently appeared that you may want to consider. Called the “Disney Premier Passport“, the new pass gives you one year of access to the parks of Walt Disney World and Disneyland.
With a price-tag of $700, this ticket is not for everyone, but for some it might just be the option you are looking for. The premier passport makes the most financial sense for those that already plan an annual pass purchase for one park but know they will also be visiting the other during the year. Take for example the Disneyland Premier Annual Passport which has a price tag of $439 by itself. If you knew you were going to visit Walt Disney World twice in the next year, but only for two days each, those Disney World days could cost you another $312 just for them, but if you bought the Premier Passport you could save $51.
The savings are even more pronounced if you plan on buying the Walt Disney World Premier Annual Pass with a cost of $619. At that price, a 1-day Park Hopper ticket at Disneyland would throw you over the break-even point.
Do keep in mind that these are comparisons based on the premier annual passes as that is what you would be buying with the Disney Premier Passport. These give you access to the parks for 365 unblocked days with unlimited park hopping ability per day.
They also allow you access to several bonus features like:
- Unlimited admission to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Disney’s Blizzard Beach at Walt Disney World
- Unlimited admission to DisneyQuest at Walt Disney World
- Unlimited admission to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex on event days
- Unlimited admission to Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course (greens fees only)
- Free parking at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World
- Free subscription to Mickey Monitor, a passholder only publication
- Free subscription to Backstage Pass
- Free subscription to Disney’s Family Fun magazine
Like all ticket options, everyone should calculate out what might be the best option for them, but for those planning some Florida and California trips, it might be worth your time to consider this new ticket.
