    Hi, I would just like to know if its as easy as paying online or in Disneyland for an annual pass? Also, If I pay in Disneyland, would I be able to pay a bigger downpayment and have a smaller monthly charge? Thank you!

    Hi, Jozelle!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m happy to hear you’re interested in enjoying a year full of magical visits to the Disneyland Resort with an Annual Passport!

    If you're a California resident, you can purchase an Annual Passport with monthly payments. You pay an initial deposit and your credit card information will be kept on file for the monthly payment plan charges, which are debited from your account automatically around the same day each month. The purchase can be completed either online or in person at the Disneyland Resort, but purchasing online can save time. You’ll receive a confirmation email that includes a Disney eTicket to print yourself. With this ticket, you can go directly to the Main Entrance turnstiles to begin your theme park adventures and visit a Disneyland Resort Main Entrance Ticket Booth to collect your Annual Passport card whenever it’s convenient for you. If you purchase your Annual Passport online, it will become active on the first day you enter a Disneyland Resort theme park using that pass.

    When purchasing an Annual Passport online, the system will only allow you to make the required down payment, which is currently $147. If you'd like to make a larger down payment up front to reduce your monthly payments, you should plan to purchase your pass in person at a Disneyland Resort Main Entrance Ticket Booth. 

    Once you become an Annual Passholder, you can sign in or create an account on disneyland.com and then visit Annual Passholders Today to view the details of your pass and explore the Annual Passholder benefits available to you. I hope this information is helpful, Jozelle. Please feel free to stop by again and ask me any other vacation planning questions you may have!

    Wishing you magic,
