Annual Passholders Receive One Month Extension to Expiration Dates

Annual Passholders have been disappointed by the recent policies concerning Park Pass reservations and how many Park reservations they can reserve at a time. Disney is working to make it up to them with an exciting new perk!

Disney World is beginning to add one free month to all Annual Pass expiration dates. Disney has automatically extended Annual Pass expiration dates as a way of thanking their loyal Passholders.

Recently, Annual Passholders were dismayed to learn they would be permitted to reserve Park Pass reservations for the length of stay on Resort reservations, but that they would only be permitted to reserve three Park Pass reservations at a time for non-Resort stays.

Disney has also recently shared that there will temporarily be no opportunity to hop between parks, and is refunding Guests with Park Hopper tickets.

With the ability to park hop and choose a park to attend at the spur of the moment currently unavailable, many Passholders were left frustrated and wondering if their Annual Passes were worth the money they paid for them.

If your are an Annual Passholder, check your My Disney Experience account to see if your pass has been extended!

If Annual Passholders decide that their pass is still not worth it for them, Disney has given the option to cancel Annual Passes. Here is the latest policy from Disney:

We know that many Passholders are excited to get back to the magic—and we’re eager to see our cherished Passholders, too. We also recognize that Park reservations will change the way that many of our Passholders use their pass. With that in mind, we are offering these alternative options to manage your pass.

If you are an Annual Passholder that has paid in full, your options are:

  • Receive an additional one-month (30 days) extension to your pass (unless you choose to cancel your pass). This additional month will automatically be processed and visible in your My Disney Experience account over the coming weeks.
  • If you prefer, and in lieu of the one-month extension, you may choose to cancel your annual pass(es). Your pass will remain valid through August 11, 2020 and will be canceled effective August 12, 2020. You will be refunded for the remaining access days of your annual pass from July 11, 2020 through your pass expiration date (as extended, if applicable). Refunds to original form of payment can be expected by mid- to late September. Refunds may take up to an additional month to receive if original form of payment is not available. To request this option, contact V.I.PASSHOLDER Support at (407) 939-7277.

If you are an Annual Passholder on the monthly payment plan, your options are:

  • Receive an additional one-month (30 days) extension to your pass(es) (unless you choose to cancel your pass(es)). This additional month will automatically be processed and visible in your My Disney Experience account over the coming weeks.
  • If you prefer, and in lieu of the additional one-month extension, you may choose to cancel your annual pass(es). If you choose this option, monthly payments will be stopped starting August 12, 2020. Your pass(es) will remain valid through August 11, 2020 and will be canceled effective August 12, 2020. Any payments made between July 11, 2020 and August 11, 2020 will be retroactively refunded. If you made a payment between March 14, 2020 through April 4, 2020 that was not already refunded, that payment will also be retroactively refunded. Refunds to original form of payment can be expected by mid- to late September. Refunds may take up to an additional month to receive if original form of payment is not available. To request this option, contact V.I.PASSHOLDER Support at (407) 939-7277.

Now through August 11, 2020, call V.I.PASSHOLDER Support at 407-939-7277 to cancel your pass or for assistance on any individual concerns. Please note that once submitted, selections cannot be changed.

  1. We live out state. We have been annual passholders for many years; we visit 3-4x a year for 1-2 weeks at a time (including participating in the marathon races). We live in a state that has a relatively low incidence of Covid so, why would we fly to Florida and visit Disney World based on the state’s current Covid levels. In addition, we could travel there and most likely not even get reservations into the parks. For out of state people, a one month extension (plus the months they were closed) is a very poor option. I would think given their poor financial position, extending out of state passes for a longer period and keeping our already spent $$ would be smarter than offering $$ back. Very disappointed in how this is being handled.

  2. I think they should have extended the annual passports for longer. We live out of state with little ones and with masks it’s to hard. Taking away park hopper and limited number of days living out of state doesn’t make it worth the trip to Florida.

  3. This does not help me at all. We live out of state so it’s not like we can visit the park whenever time is available. We are currently scheduled to visit from 10/2-10/9. Our son has a 5 day pass and we were able to book 5 days for him at the parks. However, as annual passholders, we were only permitted to book 3 days, so our son will lose 2 days on his pass because he doesn’t want to go in to the parks by himself. So very frustrated, especially since we live 1200 miles away. They should have allowed those of us from out of state with annual passes to be able to book 4-5 days instead of 3.

  4. I think the extra month is nice, but I don’t feel it makes up for multiple days/months that we should have been able to park hop along with the reservation requirement. I would think it would be possible for passholders to hop by checking the app for availability, day of. Similar to grabbing a fast pass in another park, day of. If the availability was there, you could grab second reservation & hop. Oh well. Considering all things, we have NOT cancelled & have received the days for the closure as well as the extra 30 days. We have out of state Platinum passes.

  5. Again this is great, but why hasn’t the platinum plus passes been addressed? We have paid for water parks and park hopping and those remain closed with no excepted date, I even had to get a renewal certificate in order to book my park days for our Christmas trip. Disney you are usually better than this, what about us platinum plus holders??

  6. What happened to the extension of annual passes for the days Disney was closed? I have been trying for over a week to get a hold of the VIP passholder phone number with no success so I can’t choose and option. Called at 8am a couple of days and it said that is was a 1 minute wait. Three hours later still no answer. Very frustrating!!! If they don’t extend for the days of closure, I will cancel my pass and save the monthly fee.
