We have great news for Annual Passholders! Extra benefits are coming that we don’t typically get.
Pause in Annual Passholder Sales
When both Disney World and Disneyland closed in March 2020, many changes took place. Among those was their annual pass programs. At one point, you could not purchase new passes for either coast for several months.
In August 2021, Disney finally announced new/modified programs at both Disneyland and Disney World. There are now more tiers, higher prices, and different park pass allotments.
Currently, there is some confusion if these various Annual Passes will be available for renewal. Find out more about this HERE.
Free Park Passes
Annual Passes are a great benefit to many Guests who visit the Disney Parks regularly. Specifically, in Walt Disney World, Disney Parks will now offer Free Park Passes. Currently, Annual Passholders have a finite number of Park Reservations that they can secure.
Let’s look at how many Park Reservations are available for each Annual Passholder Tier:
- Disney Incredi-Pass: Up to 5 reservations at a time
- Disney Sorcerer Pass: Up to 5 reservations at a time
- Disney Pirate Pass: Up to 4 reservations at a time
- Disney Pixie Dust Pass: Up to 3 reservations at a time
Now here is the great news for Annual Passholders, EPCOT will now offer Free Park Passes for 2 select dates. On both May 1st and May 6th, Annual Passholders can enjoy EPCOT without this affecting their pre-appointed Park Reservation limits. This is a great benefit to those Annual Passholders looking to enjoy the Disney Parks for additional days.
On both May 1st and May 6th, Annual Passholders can enjoy EPCOT without this affecting their pre-appointed Park Reservation limits
Both May 1st and May 6th are listed as “Bonus Reservations”. Back in October, Annual Passholders enjoyed “Bonus Reservations” during the explosion of 50th Anniversary festivities. We hope that additional “Bonus Reservations” will be available more often as we head into the busy summer months.
What do you think of these “Bonus Reservations”? Do you think they should be offered at more Walt Disney World Parks? Have the Park Passes limited your travel plans around Walt Disney World? Share your thoughts with us on our Facebook Page.
