Much like the Magic Key system which was introduced at Disneyland a few weeks ago, Walt Disney World has overhauled their annual pass program, and has introduced a new tier-based system that comes with new prices, restrictions and more. Here is the basic tier breakdown:
- Disney Incredi-Pass $1299 + tax: This is the only pass available for non-DVC/Florida residents and allows passholders to make up to 5 Parks Pass reservations at a time. This is also the only annual pass with no blockout dates. Monthly payments are also unavailable for this tier for non-Florida residents.
- Disney Sorcerer Pass $899 + tax: This pass allows passholders to make up to 5 Parks Pass reservations at a time and is only available for Disney Vacation Club and Florida residents only.
- Disney Pirate Pass $699 + tax: Florida residents who purchase this pass can make up to 4 Parks Pass reservations at a time.
- Disney Pixie Dust Pass $399 + tax: The lowest tier for Florida residents only, guests can make up to 3 reservations at a time. No weekend dates available.
Free theme park parking is included free at every tier and passholders will continue to enjoy savings up to 20% on dining and merchandise. However, PhotoPass downloads are no longer included as a perk at any level, and must be purchased separately as a $99 add-on that covers the length of the pass. Passholders can also add the Water Park and Sports Option for $99 plus tax for the year.
These new annual passes will go on sale September 8. And though reservations will be required for all visits, Disney has confirmed that “bonus” reservations will be available occasionally just for annual passholders who aren't blocked out that won't count against their allotment.
In addition, guests who stay on-property at Walt Disney World hotel will be able to make Parks Pass reservations for their entire length of stay as well. You can learn more about this new program at Walt Disney World's official annual passholder website here.
