Disneyland Resort 2013 Ticket and Annual Pass Prices & Information
For those of you that visit Disneyland Resort more than once a year it might be to your benefit to purchase an annual pass.
If you will be at the Disneyland Resort for more than 10 days a year an Annual Pass will definitely save you a lot of money. In addition an Annual Pass will get you a 10% discount at many stores and eateries.
It is also important to consider who in your family you will get an Annual Pass for before making that purchase. If you have children between the ages of 3 and 9 they do get discounted park hopper tickets; but there is not children's discount for the Annual Passes. Depending on how many days you will be at the Disneyland Resort it may be less expensive to simply purchase a park hopper for your child each trip.
The best way to get an Annual Pass is to exchange your Park Hopper tickets on the last day of your Disney Vacation. Disney will then credit the original cost of the Park Hoppers toward the purchase of your Annual Pass. Doing it this way, you can still enjoy the benefits of your park hoppers, such as early entry, before making the exchange.
