Concerns about the rapidly spreading coronavirus have prompted theme parks around the country to close, including Disneyland Resort in California. Many vacations were impacted, and several guests have questions about what happens next. Disney has announced Disneyland Annual Pass extensions.
On Thursday, March 12, Disneyland announced it would be closing beginning March 14 through the end of the month. Walt Disney World followed shortly with the news the parks would be closing March 16 through March 31.
Shortly after, Walt Disney World shared some information about tickets and refunds. Annual Passholders were relieved to hear that there would be an Annual Pass extension for the number of days that the parks were closed.
After Walt Disney World’s announcement, Disneyland Annual Passholders were left to wonder if their passes would also be extended for the days the park was closed. Disneyland has recently released information for Annual Passholders regarding an extension.
Disneyland Resort’s message to Passholders reads in part as follows:
Given the necessary closure, all Annual Passholders who have Passports that are valid during the closure period, will have their Passport expiration date extended based on pass type and level of access due to the impacts of the closure. The extended date will be reflected on your Passport account prior to our reopening of the parks.
Annual Passholders on the monthly payment program will remain on the current payment schedule and continue to make their scheduled payments. These Annual Passholders will have their Passport expiration date extended based on pass type and level of access due to the impacts of the closure, and will not be required to make any payments during that extended period.
For Disney Flex Passholders, we will cancel reservations for the duration of the closure without penalty.
We appreciate your patience and consideration during this unprecedented time.
The policy is quite similar to the policy Walt Disney World has on extensions for Annual Passholders.
