During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, was closed for more than a year. During that year, Disneyland Annual Passholders were informed that Disney was “sunsetting” its Annual Pass Program. The program would be announced at a later date. Disneyland reopened in April 2021 — after closing in March 2020 — and there were no Annual Passes. A new program was not announced until the summer of 2021 — that was the Magic Key Pass Program.
