Disneyland is planning to unveil a replacement for its popular yearly passports, which expired earlier this year due to a year-long pandemic shutdown.

According to a brief email from the Disneyland Resort, details regarding the new “Magic Key” program will be revealed no earlier than 1 p.m. Tuesday.

The email was issued to legacy passholders — those who were previously enrolled in the old yearly passport scheme — on Monday morning..

The Anaheim theme parks stopped selling yearly passes in January, when the state’s amusement parks were shut down due to a coronavirus outbreak. However, while that program will be discontinued once Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park reopened, Disney Parks executives stated that they would “develop other membership offerings” in its place.

Before the program was canceled this year, annual passes had been available for over four decades. Following the most recent price increase in February 2020, the cost of a Disneyland ticket ranged from $419 to $1,449, depending on the option selected by the consumer. The lowest option, on the other hand, was exclusively available to inhabitants of Southern California.

Parking and a photopass were among the most costly alternatives. Most refreshments and goods were discounted with all passes.

Annual passes were often a good value for regular visitors since, for the most part, they reduced the cost of entry over time.

A single day at a Disneyland Resort theme park costs between $104 and $154 under Disney’s current five-tiered pricing scheme. A parkhopper ticket, which allows customers to visit both parks in a single day for an extra $55, may be purchased for an additional $55, increasing the total ticket price to as high as $204.

Multi-day tickets, which cost as little as $72 a day, are another way to save money on entry. Disney is also running a limited-time promotion that allows California residents to purchase three-day tickets for as little as $83 per day.

From mid-June, both theme parks have been available for California residents.
