Big Changes for Disneyland Just Announced!


There's always change with a new year, and 2023 is proving to be no different. These changes were just announced today! What do you all think?

Park Hopping Time Changed

No more waiting until 1:00 pm to change parks. Starting February 4, you can switch parks starting at 11:00 am!

More Low Price Days   

Disney has promised to increase the amount of lowest tier tickets by "nearly two months worth." That's almost 60 days that have been changed from the higher priced days to the $104 (lowest cost) days. I love more chances to go to Disneyland for less money!

Photo Pass Included

Beginning February 4, all ride photos will be complimentary with any ticket! No Genie+ required! This will be available at least through the Disney 100 celebration. (Keep in mind, this is ride Photo Pass photos, not character photos or anything like that)

Promise for More Magic Keys

While we don't have specific timeframes or dates, Disney has promised that there will be many more opportunities to purchase Magic Keys "as they become available." I know people have been frustrated at how often no Magic Keys are up for purchase, so its great to hear that there will be more chances if you're in the market. 

All of this, plus more!

These are just the surprise announcements for today. Also coming to Disneyland this year that we already knew about:

  • Mickey's Runaway Railway opens January 27
  • Lunar New Year Celebration January 20 - February 15
  • Food and Wine Festival returns March 3 - April 25
  • Magic Happens parade returns February 24
  • Wondrous Journeys fireworks show and World of Color: One begin January 27
