Walt Disney World Resort Unveils New Annual Pass Program

Walt Disney World Annual Passholder

Walt Disney World has unveiled its new annual pass program. This comes ahead of its 50th-Anniversary celebration that starts on October 1, 2021. The new passes will be available starting on September 8. With this new system, there are four tiers that will be available to Florida residents. This new system is similar to the Magic Key pass that was recently unveiled at Disneyland Resort.

There are quite a few details to take note of with the new Annual Passes. Here are some of the highlights:

  • The new Annual Passes continue to require reservations for all visits.
  • Disney is saying that there will be “bonus” reservations that will be offered occasionally.
  • Passholders staying at a Disney Resort will be able to book reservations for the length of their stay.
  • Passholders will also be able to utilize a new integrated calendar to make, modify, or cancel reservations. Theme Park parking is included with each pass level as well.
  • Florida residents will be able to utilize monthly payments for any Annual Pass tier.
  • Discounts of up to 20% for dining and merchandise will be available.
  • Park Hopping will be included with the new Annual Passes
