Annual Passholder Changes
The Disneyland Resort is changing how they process Annual Passholders (AP's) for those purchasing them for the first time or those who are renewing them. As we mentioned before, they are no longer taking your picture and putting them on the Annual Pass.
When AP's make their purchase at a dining location or a retail location within the parks, and they have a new AP, they will be asked to show photo identification as well.
They began to allow guests who purchased an Annual Pass recently to upload a photo of themselves from home. This allows the Cast Member at the admission gates or the parking lots to see your photo and not have you show identification.
Beginning July 31, 2011 the Annual Passholder Processing Centers within Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure will be closing. All Annual Pass transactions will be handled at the ticket gate. You can upload a photo from home or have a Photopass photographer take a picture for you, but you will not be required to wait in another line to have your photo taken within the park.
This change now has the Disneyland Resort similar to Walt Disney World's Annual Passholder processing as well.
Rumor is the Plaza Pavilion at Disneyland, where the current Annual Passholder Processing Center is, will become a Mary Poppins themed bakery.
