Stacy Greenhut, Social Media Producer
To limit the number of guests inside Walt Disney World during the pandemic, the theme park giant stopped selling new annual passes.
Earlier in August, Disney officials promised that passes would resume this year, but they didnt say when.
But Walt Disney World officials recently announced that new annual pass sales would resume on Wednesday .
That gives guests just under a month to get their passes before the 50th Anniversary celebrations start on Oct. 1.
The theme park said it is offering different annual pass benefits, based on passholder feedback.
Disney is trying to balance out keeping the locals happy and coming versus maximizing the revenue from out of state people so thats why we see some of the blackout dates on some of these passes during spring break. During Christmas, Len Testa, president of TouringPlans.Com, explained.
According to the Disney Parks blog, depending on your pass type members can hold up to five Disney Park Pass reservations at a time. And from time to time, bonus reservations would be added to the calendar without it counting against their hold limit.
Also, if annual passholders stay at a Disney resort, 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.

When We Recommend Getting An Annual Pass
Heres when we recommend purchasing an Annual Pass.
- Onsite guests that visit the parks 15-18 days per year
- Offsite guests that visit the parks at least 12-14 days per year.
- Guests that have secured an Annual Pass discount for a resort stay that saves money even after you factor in the price of the Annual pass. Remember: you can look at and book available Annual Pass resort discounts before you actually purchase an Annual Pass you just have to show the Annual Pass when you check-in.
Note: taking into account only ticket prices, youll need to travel more days to break even when compared to standard Park Hopper tickets if traveling during slow times of the year vs. needing to travel fewer days if traveling during busy times like the holidays and Spring Break.

What Are The Annual Passholder Discounts
All Annual Pass holders get discounts on dining and shopping. Its a decent selling point from Disney but if youre only upping a ten-day ticket to an annual pass to save on food and souvenirs do your homework. Disney states that you can get up to 20% off at select restaurants but this really only applies to the House of Blues at Disney Springs and all of the different Joffreys coffee locations.
In reality, you really only get a 10% discount at select table service restaurants. If youre not one to splurge on the dining plan or table service restaurants and you like to stick to those quick service locations you wont get much use out of this benefit.
But on the flip side, its worth knowing about things like Tables in Wonderland this is a special dining membership with an annual fee of $150. This is available for any pass holder or DVC member. With this membership, youll get 20% off dining at over a hundred locations and youll get free valet at resorts when you have a dining reservation there.
Now, this discount applies to up to ten people dining with a member meaning only one person in the group needs to have the membership to get the 20% discount. Im only mentioning this because if youre a couple looking at passes you can move down to a lower level and add this to your overall budget and you can probably still come out ahead. I personally think its a decent trade-off of giving up on select dates to get more dining discounts.

Discount Tickets At Disney World
If you are driving or renting a car in Florida, heres another option: there are two Walmarts in Kissimmee, not far from Walt Disney World, each of which offers a ticket center within the store that sells discounted multi-day Disney World tickets.
- 3250 Vineland Road, Kissimmee ,
- 4444 W. Vine Street, Kissimmee ,
We suspect that the ticket desks in the Walmarts are actually operated by a local ticket broker. When weve checked prices in the past, Undercover Tourist had better deals. But the Walmart desks do offer an option for those who have actually arrived in Florida and still need to buy tickets.
The Walmart locations do not carry every ticket type. You have to buy the tickets in person they will not mail them. We recommend calling ahead to confirm prices, hours and availability. The numbers listed below are the main line for the store. Youll have to ask to be transferred to the ticket desk.
Thanks to Bram W for info.
What Is Not Included With A Disney World Annual Pass
A Disney World Annual Pass is an amazing opportunity to enjoy the theme parks 12 months out of the year! Some things that are not included are access to the water parks at Walt Disney World.
If you are interested in admission to the water parks at Walt Disney World you will have the option to add water parks onto your Annual Pass. Also, Disney World PhotoPass services including downloads of your PhotoPass photos were previously included in Disney World Annual Passes. However, Disney is no longer including PhotoPass so you have the option to add PhotoPass services to your Annual Pass for an additional charge.
Additionally, you do not need an Annual Pass to access Disney Springs, the dining and shopping district at Disney World. There is no admission fee to enter Disney Springs.
Annual Passes And Park Reservations
Just like all guests, annual passholders are required to make a Disney Park Pass Reservation for each day they want to visit the theme parks.
Before this update, annual passholders were limited to 3 park pass reservations at one time. Now, however, the Pirate Pass, Sorcerer Pass, and Incredi-Pass each allow for 4 or 5 park pass reservations at a time. The Pixie Dust Pass is the only one that is still limited to 3 reservations.
On top of the normal reservation limits, annual passholders staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel will be able to reserve a park pass for each day of their stay. So if you are staying for 7 days, you can make 7 different park pass reservations, plus you will have your normal allotment of 3, 4, or 5 on top of that.
If you still have an old annual pass, you also can now hold more park pass reservations. Starting September 8, 2021, Platinum Plus, Platinum, and Gold Annual Passholders can hold five reservations at a time, while Silver Passholders will be able to hold four.
Cost Of Disney World Annual Passes
It is worth noting however that even an Annual Pass that costs $1,200+ can still offer savings when compared to purchasing individual theme park tickets. For example, a single-day ticket to a Walt Disney World in 2021 will start at $109 and only go up from there. For a family of four wanting to visit Disney World for five days, well, you can do the math.
However, if a family of four knows that they want to visit Disney World at least once a year you can strategically purchase your Annual Passes and plan an April spring break weeklong vacation for 2021, and then a January winter break 2022 trip and get two vacations or more out of a single pass.

Can I Get More Park Reservations If I Stay At A Resort
When you stay on Walt Disney World Property as an Annual Passholder, you get a guaranteed park reservation. This does not count as one of your reservations through your pass.
For example, if you have the Incredi-Pass with five park reservations and currently have four used up, you can book a stay at Pop Century with guaranteed park reservations and still leave that final park reservation up for grabs for another day.
