Walt Disney World Annual Passes

 

So many people have been waiting for the day when Walt Disney World Annual Passes went back on sale. Disney recently shared that information would be coming later this month. That day is today! Walt Disney World has finally announced details about their revamped Annual Passholder program and they shared that they will go on sale once again beginning on September 8, 2021! With this announcement, there are four new Annual Passes that will be available. These new passes will offer flexibility and will work to meet Guests’ needs. The new passes are the Disney Pixie Dust Pass, the Disney Pirate Pass, the Disney Sorcerer Pass, and the Disney Incredi-Pass.

Pass Perks

These new pass options offer some different perks, as well that Passholders should be aware of. Depending on the pass type that is purchased, Guests will have the ability to hold up to five Disney Park Pass Reservations at a time. In addition, there will be “bonus reservations” added to the calendar from time to time. This means that Passholders can make an additional park reservation without it counting against their reservation hold limit.

In addition, for Passholders staying at a Disney Resort hotels or other select hotels, they will still be able to make theme park reservations for each day of their stay. This is in addition to the reservations that can be held based on your pass type.

With the new Annual Pass options, Guests will be able to customize their pass with different add-ons, like the Water Park and Sports option or Disney PhotoPass downloads. These add-on options will be available for extra purchase with any of the four pass types.

To make things easier for Passholders, there will be soon be the option to quickly see blockout dates for each pass type, view days that are available and make, modify or cancel a reservation all in one place.

Finally, these updated Annual Passes will continue to offer things like Park Hopping, standard theme park parking and discounts on merchandise and dining.
