The Disneyland Signature Annual Passport (AP) is one of the newest Disneyland season passes.
Created on October 4, 2015, the Signature AP offers near year-round access to the resort and is a slightly scaled down replacement for the discontinued Premium AP.
Let’s look at what this pass offers.
By The Numbers: Signature Annual Passport
The total cost for a Signature AP is $849.00.
Payments on new Signature Annual Passports are $62.67 per month after a $97 down payment.
For those Annual Passholders choosing to renew at the Signature level, payments will be slightly higher.
For more information on AP payments, check out our page on financing Disneyland AP’s. Remember, financing is available for California residents only.

Does The Signature AP Include Parking?
Yes, parking at the Disneyland Resort is included. Signature Annual Passholders can park every day of their pass without paying extra.

How Many Days Per Year Can You Visit The Resort?
The Signature AP allows you entry 350 days per year.
When Is This Passport Blocked Out?
Signature AP’s can visit the Disneyland Resort every day of the year, except for the two weeks of Christmas and New Year’s. If total, year-round access if what you want, take a look at the Signature Plus pass.
How Many Visits Do You Need To Break-Even On The Pass?
You’ll pass the break-even point for the Signature pass on your 12th day at the resort.
When you’re planning your vacation goals, the number of times you’ll visit the Disneyland Resort can guide you to the correct Annual Passport. Below are some examples of when it would be cheaper to skip the AP and buy regular tickets.
|Ticket or AP||Cost||Savings|
|(2) 5-Day Park Hopper Tickets *||$700||$149|
|(2) 5-Day PH+ (1) 1-Day Value Tickets||$797||$52|
These examples don’t include any cost savings you’d get from your AP discount, which is 15 – 20% at most restaurants and shops in the parks.
If you plan to visit the Disneyland Resort more than 10 days and/or take multiple smaller trips spaced throughout the entire year, it makes sense to buy a Signature Annual Passport.
- Disney Dining:15%
- Merchandise Purchased At Disney Theme Parks, Kiosks, and Resort Hotels:20%
- Disneyland Resort Hotel Stays: 15% to over 40% depending on the day of the week and season
- Resort Events & Tours: 15%
- Downtown Disney:
- Restaurants: 10% (15% at both the House of Blues® Crossroads Restaurant and Voodoo Lounge)
- Shops: 10% – 20%
Unlimited Disney PhotoPass® Access
As an added benefit, Disneyland Signature Annual Passholders will enjoy unlimited access and downloads of all PhotoPass® pictures taken while at the Disneyland Resort. Note: this access will lapse when your AP expires.

Price History Of Disneyland Signature Annual Passport
Since it is brand new, there really isn’t any price history for this pass.
I’ve included a chart below, comparing the current Signature AP price against the cost of a Disneyland 5-Day Park Hopper (PH) ticket for reference.
|Date||Signature AP||5-Day Park Hopper Ticket||Days To Break-Even|
The price for all Disneyland AP’s has steadily increased since they first debuted in the 1980’s. For a more detailed discussion on Disney AP pricing strategy, visit my post ‘5 Reasons Disneyland Doesn’t Want More Annual Passholders‘.
Is The Signature Annual Passport For You?
If you’re looking for a replacement for the Premium AP and a near year-round pass, the Signature AP is the pass for you. Not only do you get park access during the summer and every weekend, you’re also able to visit around most special holiday times.
Want to visit Disneyland on Memorial Day, Labor Day, Or Spring Break? With only 15 blockout days, the Signature AP has more flexibility than the lower level passports.
As with every passport, the Signature AP is especially useful if you can make use of the available weekdays, when most people are at work and park crowd levels are at their lowest. Turn your visit into a multi-day mini-vacation and take advantage of all the benefits this passport has to offer.
