ANAHEIM (CBSLA) — Disneyland announced Thursday it will shut down its annual pass program due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“Due to the continued uncertainty of the pandemic and limitations around the reopening of our California theme parks, we will be issuing appropriate refunds for eligible Disneyland Resort Annual Passports and sunsetting the current program,” Ken Potrock, president of Disneyland, announced in a statement on Twitter.

A surge of COVID-19 cases has all of Southern California under a stay-at-home order, and under the governor’s previous schedule of reopening, theme parks would not be able to reopen until the least restrictive tier. Disney officials in a investor call said they didn’t expect the Anaheim parks to reopen until at least March.
Disneyland is currently being used as a COVID-19 vaccination super site.
