Walt Disney World Annual Passes are BACK

| | |

Walt Disney Annual Passes are BACK! Beginning September 8, 2021, Walt Disney World Resort will introduce 4 new Annual Passes! This morning an update was posted to the website. They brought 3 new Florida Resident or DVC exclusive passes, and 1 for everyone else!

Take a look at the details below:

With the Annual Passholder program’s new look and feel, we wanted to honor our past while looking forward to the future. Using a piece of 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.

Beginning September 8, 2021, Walt Disney World Resort will introduce 4 new Annual Passes!

Coming soon, current, active Annual Passholders will be among the first to receive the brand-new Passholder magnet featuring our new look. It’s our way of saying “thank you” for being a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder. (Two magnets per household. Not responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged magnets).

More Reservation Holds for Select Passes

Annual Passholders staying at select Disney Resort or other select hotels are still eligible to make theme park reservations for each day of their Resort stay(s), in addition to holding their maximum number of theme park reservations at a time on a rolling basis.
And starting September 8, 2021 select Annual Passes will be able to hold more reservations at a time:

  • Platinum Plus, Platinum and Gold Annual Passes: Up to 5 reservations held at a time
  • Silver: Up to 4 reservations held at a time

Enhancements to the Park Reservation System

In an effort to make the reservation program more seamless, on September 8, 2021, Walt Disney World Resort will introduce an enhanced theme park reservation calendar that shows booked reservations, park availability and blockout dates. All current reservations will be maintained with the ability to make and modify additional new reservations as part of the update.

Perks, Benefits and Blockout Dates

All passes will continue to provide special perks throughout the year, including:

  • Discounts on dining, merchandise and more
  • Standard theme park parking
  • Special merchandise and content created just for Passholders
  • Access to V.I.Passholder Support to get the most out of your year of magic

Additionally, blockout dates and our Florida Resident Monthly Payment Program will remain the same.

And as we look ahead to the 50th anniversary celebration, we’ll soon share more information on the experiences and perks coming just for Passholders.
