Amtrak and Disneyland Resort are partnering for a limited promotion that offers discounted rail travel and park admission for Southern California residents.
Through May 21, each child age 2-12 can board an Amtrak Pacific Surfliner train traveling to the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center for free with the purchase of an adult ticket. The ART Route 15 connector bus will shuttle Amtrak passengers from the ARTIC to the theme park for free.
The discount can be redeemed using the “V231″ promo code at the time of purchase.
Children’s fares are normally half of the lowest-priced adult ticket.
Other Amtrak promotions such as its 10 percent discount for AAA members will not apply to the Disney offer.
“Through this partnership, we hope to make passenger rail service more accessible and approachable for Southern Californians, while also providing added value to our existing Pacific Surfliner customers,” said Bryan MacDonald, chairman of the Los Angeles – San Diego – San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) Rail Corridor Agency, which oversees the Pacific Surfliner service.
Once train tickets are booked, passengers are eligible to purchase Disneyland SoCal Resident tickets at a 5 percent discount to visit Disneyland or Disney California Adventure.
Tickets must be purchased by May 21, and they expire on May 24. Proof of residency in ZIP codes 90000-93599, or in Northern Baja within ZIP codes 21000-22999 is required.
The discounts on passes are:
- Two-day ticket with choice of one park per day for $151
- Two-day Park Hopper ticket for $194
- Three-day ticket with choice of one park per day for $189
- Three-day Park Hopper ticket for $232
The Pacific Surfliner travels along a 351-mile coastal route from San Diego to San Luis Obispo, serving 29 stations, making it ideal to partner with Disney to offer discounted travel to SoCal Resident ticket buyers, said LOSSAN Deputy Director Michael Litschi.
“It was a partnership we thought made sense,” he said.
