Attention, Annual Passholders! Disney may be asking for additional information regarding your pass extension!
Walt Disney World was closed for almost 4 months, which is a pretty large chunk of time for a 12-month pass. As a result, Disney offered Passholders the option to extend or cancel.
I personally took the extension. My pass activated in late February so I could have received almost the entire amount I paid back. However, I knew I would still visit the parks after reopening so it made sense to take the extension.
It’s not been all Mickey Bars and Dole Whips, though. Annual Passholders were dismayed to learn they would be permitted to reserve Park Pass reservations for the length of stay on Resort reservations. However, they would only be permitted to reserve three Park Pass reservations at a time for non-resort stays.
Additionally, Disney suspended the option to hop between parks.
In response to this, 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.
I personally have not received this extension yet, but I know these things take time.
Not only that, but water parks are not open either so eligible Annual Passholders will also receive a portion of their pass refunded to take this into account.
