With the reopening of the Walt Disney World Parks, we have learned that many of the things we have come to know and love about Disney World are very different right now. One of the biggest changes we have experienced in Walt Disney World is that the sales of Annual Passes have been temporarily halted.

Guests who had already purchased an Annual Pass have been able to renew their passes, but they delayed the sale of new passes.

There are some select Guests who are eligible to renew passes that have expired as well. Head over HERE for more info and to see if you are eligible!

Disney announced earlier this month that they WOULD return in time for the 50th anniversary! Now we have more details!

From Disney Parks Blog,

“We’re excited to share that beginning September 8, 2021, we will once again invite new Walt Disney World Annual Passholders to be a part of this beloved program!”

That is next Wednesday so mark your calendars! Not only that, but there will be different types of passes.

4 New Pass Types

“We are introducing four new Annual Passes offering the flexibility and choice to meet guest needs, each designed based on Passholder feedback. These passes will help our biggest fans experience all that’s to come during “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” – from new attractions and nighttime spectaculars to dazzling decorations at all four theme parks and more!”

There are some pretty big changes with these passes. The first three are only available for Florida Residents and/or DVC members. The last pass is for everyone, but those with the highest pass can have up to 5 park days reserved! Right now, only 3 can be reserved without a resort hotel booked.

Additionally, as noted in our Genie+ guide, they have not announced any add-on options for the Genie+ into the Annual Pass program.

For those who are current Passholders, you will be able to continue your current pass. When it is time to renew, you will choose one of the above programs.

PhotoPass and Water Parks/more will be will be offered for an additional $99. This is rather disappointing for those who have enjoyed free downloads of their vacation photos.

Hold More Park Reservations: Depending on their pass type, Passholders may now hold up to five Disney Park Pass reservations at a time. We’ll also be adding “bonus reservations” to the calendar from time to time, so Passholders can make an additional park reservation without it counting against their applicable reservation hold limit. Plus, when Passholders stay at Disney Resort hotels or other select hotels, they will also be eligible to make theme park reservations for each day of their stay – in addition to the reservations you can hold based on your pass type!

Customize Your Pass: Choose different add-on options based on your preferences – from the Water Park and Sports option to Disney PhotoPass downloads. These add-on options will be available for purchase with any of our four new passes.

Access a New Integrated Calendar: Planning will be easier with enhancements to our reservation system, including a new integrated calendar that lets Passholders quickly see blockout dates for each pass type, view available days and make, modify or cancel a reservation all in one place.

Enjoy Passholder Perks: Passes will continue to offerbenefits you know and love including the Park Hopper option, standard theme park parking and discounts on merchandise and dining. And, there will be a few special surprises throughout the 50th anniversary celebration!
