Disney Summer Fun Pass

(photo taken by me)

As usual, Disneyland Resort is offering SoCal residents a 3 day Summer Fun Pass from now until September 5, 2011 for $139 – one park per day.  The pass must be used before, or on, September 5 in order to use the last 2 days within 45 days.  For $15 more, you can turn your park per day ticket into a hopper pass to get your monies worth to check out the Little Mermaid ride at Disney’s California Adventure, – if you’re  like me and would only like to waste your 1 park per day ticket at Disneyland only.  Check out the video below:
