4. The return of annual pass sales

A decision that has frustrated and confused Disney fans for a while now was the pause on the sale of annual passes. Citing intense demand, sales were initially halted for Walt Disney World annual passes in November 2021, with no current confirmation as to when sales will resume. Further confusion came last week when a price increase was announced for annual passes, with many hoping that this was potentially signaling their return, though little is known about the future of annual pass sales. 

Disneyland locals have equally endured a rocky road with their annual passes over the past couple of years, so many will be hoping that Iger’s future parks plans will have this at the forefront. 

5. A Genie+ Overhaul

Genie+ is another of Disney’s most divisive additions in recent years, as it replaced the free Fastpass+ system with a new paid model. While some have certainly embraced the benefits of Genie+, the system is deemed to be largely flawed by many, even down to the user experience it offers in the My Disney Experience app. 

With Genie+ serving as a considerable money maker for the Disney parks, it's unlikely that any form of free system will return, however, a better thought-out premium offering would likely satisfy those who have struggled to adjust to Genie+’s implementation. 

What do you think of Iger’s return as CEO? Which of these changes do you hope to see first within the Disney parks? Let us know by leaving us a comment below or on our Facebook page.
