UPDATE November 17 - New sales for Walt Disney World Annual Passes for the top three tiers were halted back in November 2021 due to demand. The Pixie Pass which is only available to Florida residents and has the most block-out dates has been the only tier available to purchase.
What we do know is that Walt Disney World Annual Passes will come back on sale but unfortunately it doesn;t look like this is going to be anytime in 2022. According to a tweet by reporter, Scott Gustin, Walt Disney World Annual Passes will not be available until 2023 at the earliest. When they do come back on sale these will be the prices, Incredi-Pass $1399 (was £1299), Sorcerer $969 (was $899) and Pirate Pass $749 (was $699) . The Pixie Pass will remain at $399.
A note: I asked Disney about a timeline for new AP sales -- WDW does not anticipate new AP sales (Incredi-Pass, Sorcerer, Pirate) to resume before the end of the year. https://t.co/0BaaImGeDS— Scott Gustin (@ScottGustin) November 15, 2022
June 29 - Disney can sometimes feel confusing at the moment. Well, yesterday certain Walt Disney World Annual Passes were seemingly put back on sale, having been halted since back in Fall 2021, and then taken off sale again.
The Sorcerer Pass was put on sale for $899 and the Pirate Pass was available for $699 for Florida residents and Disney Vacation Club Members only but minutes later they were then suddenly unavailable to purchase again through the website.
It turns out that the annual passes going on sale was in error. The people who tried to purchase the Sorcerer Pass or Pirate Pass were unable to checkout because of the website glitch.
So, the excitement surrounding Walt Disney World annual passes was short lived. This isn't the first time Disney has made a mistake. Back in May, Disney Made Big Mistake: New MagicBand+ Pulled From Sale.
Currently at the time of writing, the Pixie Dust Pass which has block-out dates at weekends as well as peak and holiday periods, is still available for $399 for Florida Residents only. This has been the case since the annual passes were reintroduced several months ago as it is the least popular of all the annual passes on offer due to the huge amount of block-out dates.
We are unsure whether this error means that Disney is planning to put the Sorcerer Pass or Pirate Pass back on sale again in the near future or indeed the Incredi Pass but we will certainly keep you posted on this on our news and Facebook page.
