We aren’t sure what to think of this. Check out the new change for the listing of Annual Passholder benefits on the Disney website.
Annual Passholder Lawsuit
Yesterday, we shared that a pair of Florida residents are suing Disney, claiming the company is unfairly treating its annual passholders who cannot get reservations into the park.
Annual passholders must make advance reservations, even if their passes have no blockout dates. But the lawsuit filed anonymously by an Orange County resident “M.P.” and Palm Beach County resident “E.K.” says on some days, reservation slots are full for passholders while Disney continues to sell single-day tickets to welcome in other guests. Be sure to check out Disney’s response HERE.
After this official statement, we now see a big change in the listing of Annual Passholder benefits.
Annual Passholder Benefits
Previously, when guests first clicked on “Annual Passes” on the Walt Disney World website, a benefits page would display all four Annual Passholder tiers. Annual Passes were unavailable for purchase from mid 2020 until September 2021. Disney announced that the Annual Passes would be available for purchase in September 2021 with brand new tiers.
These included the Disney Pixie Dust Pass, Disney Pirate Pass, Disney Sorcerer Pass, and finally the Disney Incredible-Pass. This introductory page explained the difference between the various tiers, the additional add-ons with photos and water parks, and even helped to explain the restrictions of each pass.
Mysteriously, this page is now missing from the Walt Disney World website. Currently, only the Disney Pixie Dust pass is available for purchase. Perhaps Disney no longer offers this informational page since the other passes are unavailable.
The introductory page explained the difference between the various tiers, the additional add-ons with photos and water parks, and even helped to explain the restrictions of each pass is now missing from the Walt Disney World website.
It is also possible that this may be connected to the current lawsuit. At this time it is unclear why, but the page is no longer available.
What do you think of the current Annual Passholder tiers? Do you think this missing webpage may be due to the lawsuit? Do you think the lawsuit may affect the return of Annual Passes? Share your thoughts with us on our Facebook Page.
