Walt Disney World Annual Pass Updates

Good afternoon, everyone! Today, I want to discuss some information that came out a couple days ago! So, let’s get started, shall we?! So, Disney World has announced that they are bringing back some annual passes which it will be starting this month. So, the theme park giant is also doing something big for two of its most important customer groups. Along with the rest of the planet, Disney World shut down in 2020 due to covid-19. When it began to slowly reopen in 2021, it stopped, by and large, selling its Annual Passes, in order to avoid overcrowding. Once vaccines became available, some people stayed home, still unsure about how safe everything was. But a lot of people were eager to get back out there and make up for a lost year, and demand for travel, restaurants and many other things began to rebound. Not necessarily to pre-pandemic levels, but still. But Disney made the decision to halt selling most of its annual passes, “to avoid running out of reservations on more dates,” notes Disney Tourist Blog. “If organic demand were allowed to play out, attendance would’ve been even higher.” But now that we’re a few years out and demand for Disney World is starting to level off and return to pre-pandemic levels, Walt Disney (DIS) – Get Free Report is bringing back a number of annual passes. But you better hurry.

Disney World will resume selling all levels of annual passes on April 20. Blog Mickey notes that “The quantity of passes will be limited and passes, or pass types, may be unavailable for purchase at any time,” which means you better act quick because these things will sell out.

Here’s what will be available:

Disney Incredi-Pass: $1,399

This one is available to all guests, and can be purchased via a layaway plan at $108 per month with 12 monthly payments and 0% APR after $205 down payment with the Florida Resident Monthly Payment Program.

Here’s what it comes with:

Disney Is Adding a Useful Feature

Also, starting April 20, existing annual passholders will be able to upgrade their pass outside of the typical renewal/upgrade window, and they will have to pay the difference in pass types in full at the time of purchase.

Before this change, passholders were able to upgrade their annual pass type, but only during the renewal process. This is a meaningful change because Disney never stopped selling entry-level passes for Florida residents. Many people who purchased that pass likely wanted a higher tier and were willing to wait in order to upgrade.

Now, those passholders can immediately move to a higher tier.

Overall, I think this is great news for Disney World fans. It will make them feel really happy! Now, people with annual passes can only visit all four parks including Magic Kingdom on weekdays except on the weekends because that’s one of the days that would get really busy and that makes sense.

So, what are your thoughts about the Annual Passes coming back to Disney World?! I would love to hear lots of comments, thoughts, opinions, questions, or concerns down below!

Stay tuned for Disney updates.
