As Disney previously said that the new annual passholder system for Walt Disney World would be shared, now has been announced! Just arriving for the new sales ahead of the resort’s 50th anniversary on October 1st. Walt Disney World annual passholders can get the new ones, starting on September 8th! Four different passes that is somewhat similar like Disneyland’s Magic Key program, that just recently launched. Offering the flexibility and choice to meet guest needs, each designed based on Passholder feedback.
So here’s what they are and what’s new.
Each of the new four passes will be called Disney Pixie Dust Pass (FL Resident), Disney Pirate Pass (FL Resident), Disney Sorcerer Pass (FL Resident and DVC Member) and Disney Incredi-Pass. To make it easier for you to understand which is which. The Incredi-Pass (Non-FL) is the highest tier one for $1,299 w/tax, or $99 per month with 12 monthly payments. With 0% APR after a $205 down payment on the Florida Resident Monthly Payment Program.
Here’s some cool perks that come with it:
- 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 offer benefits 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!
The image design for the new look of the Annual Passholder system, and using the original Walt Disney World Resort logo as a foundation for bright colors and energetic design, the program’s new look puts Passholders right in the middle of the magic. Disney did clarify to help manage the crowds, that annual Passes “may be unavailable for purchase”. Anyone signed up will also still be required to make park reservations for each day of their visit. Do so by visiting their site for information by clicking the link here.
