• Meetup: Disneyland after work!!!

    Disneyland Park

    Hey let's check out what's new at Disneyland, try some new vegan food options, hit a few rides and then maybe watch a show... Leave comments below if you have any preferences. **Note that having a Disneyland annual pass makes this meetup more cost effective since there is no way to buy a half-day ticket and a one-day ticket to Disneyland can cost over $100. The lowest cost annual pass to Disneyland is the SoCal Passport Pass which is $154 down and $20.54/month for 1 year and is only available to southern California residents. In addition it is convenient to buy the added "MaxPass" which is around $100 for 1 year so you can use the Disney app to get fastpass tickets using your phone. **Note that for a summer day like this, the cheapest annual pass needed is the "Flex Pass" $600/year (or $154 down+$37/month for 1 year): https://disneyland.disney.go.com/guest-services/flex-passport/ This allows 2 days/month during the summer.
