“Disneyland annual passholders can finally get their share of the $9.5 million class action lawsuit that found the Anaheim theme park misled and deceived its most loyal fans by artificially limiting capacity and restricting reservations.

“Disneyland has sent email notices to eligible passholders who are entitled to a payment of $65.67 from the Dream Key settlement.

“Passholders who received a settlement email have until Sept. 12 to claim their digital payment via Venmo, Paypal or direct deposit into their banking account — which may take up to 72 hours to appear in the account. Dream Keyholders can also opt to get paid by check through snail mail — which takes six to 10 weeks.

“Passholders who did not opt for digital payment should automatically receive a check at their last known mailing address.”.
