As reported in a recent Orange County article, there are now three options and, unfortunately, the prices have gone up a bit.
- Deluxe Pass - $599 with blockout dates during the holidays and some weekends.
- Signature Pass - $849 includes larger discounts and blockout dates around the holidays.
- Signature Plus Pass - $1,049 with no blockout dates
The new Signature pass is the most similar to the old Premium pass. Although it has blockout dates, they are only during the super-busy holiday season. If you were already planning on skipping the crowds right around Christmas and New Year's then don't worry about getting the Signature Plus pass. This isn't simply a price gouging but a way to help control crowd levels during their busiest times. Simply put, if you want an annual pass and also want to visit the park during the immediate holidays then you will be expected to pay a premium.
No matter what, always make sure that you consider all the ins and outs of having an annual pass before you take the leap and purchase one.
