Disney World has just announced that they will be dropping their new annual pass holder options for Disney World on September 8th. This comes just a couple weeks after Disneyland dropped their Key Holder program. Disney has done a whole new makeover to their annual pass holder options for both parks and while I don’t know much about Disneyland, I will be linking their options here for my west coast people.
I’m going to be focusing on Disney World as that’s right here in my backyard of Orlando, Florida.
There are four different options that Disney World is offering for you to choose from and I am going to quickly highlight them all below. Being former annual pass holders and our passes expiring right before COVID hit the world, we didn’t renew and totally kicked ourselves for not doing it. Now that the pass holder options are back, we are going to be choosing the Pirate pass as it makes the most sense for our family.
The four pass holder options are as follows:
All calendars with black out dates are linked as well if blackout dates apply to the pass holder option.
- Pixie Pass – this is very similar to your weekday pass. Subject to blackout dates during peak and holiday seasons. Holds up to 3 park reservations at a time. $399 plus tax. Florida residents have the option to pay monthly with the price being $19/mo with a $205 down payment.
- Pirate Pass – this would be like your silver/gold pass. Subject to blackout dates during peak and holiday season. Holds up to 4 park reservations at a time. $699 plus tax. Florida residents have the option to pay monthly with the price being $45/mo with a $205 down payment.
- Sorcerer Pass – this would be like your platinum pass. Subject to blackout dates during holiday seasons. Holds up to 5 park reservations at a time. $899 plus tax. Florida residents have the option to pay monthly with the price being $63/mo with a $205 down payment.
- Incredi-pass Pass– this would be like the platinum plus pass. Absolutely no blackout dates apply. Hold up to 5 park reservations at a time. $1299 plus tax. Florida residents have the option to pay monthly with the price being $99/mo with a $205 down payment.
All pass holders have the option to visit one or more parks as long as they have reservations in said park.
Now all pass holders will have the typical discounts on dining, merchandise, and more as well as parking being complimentary. There will be dates rolling out on the calendar from time to time for pass holders to make additional reservations with no mark towards the amount that they can make per their pass. Say you have the Sorcerer Pass and you use one reservation for your family and they roll out an extra day for pass holders, you may use that day and still have 4 reservations left.
You also have the option of adding on waterpark passes and photo-pass options to your pass for additional pricing. You can read more about all of that here as well as an even more in-depth breakdown of the different pass holder options.
All of this comes right before the big 50th Anniversary celebration!
What pass holder option will you be choosing for you Disney loving family? We, personally, can’t wait to get back to the magic.
