CA: Over 100,000 eligible for payout in huge Disneyland class-action case

“Over 100,000 Disneyland passholders are eligible for a cash payment from Disney after the company agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit over alleged false advertising. On Thursday, a preliminary agreement was reached between Disney and plaintiff Jenale Nielsen, a Bay Area woman who filed on behalf of all former Dream Key holders. Magic Key, which is Disneyland’s annual pass program, allows individuals to purchase year-long admission with differing blockout dates depending on how much the pass costs. Nielsen said she purchased the highest-tier Dream Key for $1,399 in part because Disneyland’s advertising claimed it had ‘no blockout dates.’ Two other tiers, Enchant and Believe, were advertised with the line ‘blockout dates apply.’ Upon trying to make park reservations, however, Nielsen said she was ‘disappointed to learn that Disney had already blocked out many days, including all weekend days in the month of November 2021.'” (09/10/23)
