The reopening of the Disney World theme parks is an unprecedented situation. Disney is walking a fine line in making sure their guests are happy with the protocols.
One heavily affected group is Disney World Annual Passholders. The closure of the parks and modified reopening are definitely not what Passholders had in mind when they purchased their passes. Now, Disney is giving Passholders options for how they want to handle their passes with the reopening.
We already know that Disney is extending affected annual passes by the number of days the parks were closed. The issue now is that many Passholders may have concerns with navigating the Disney Park Pass reservation system and being limited to one park each day with a 3-day reservable limit. In response, Disney is giving Passholders the option to FURTHER extend their pass or to cancel their pass.
For Annual Passholders that have paid in full, your options are:
- Receive a one-month extension to your pass. The additional month will be automatically processed and visible in your My Disney Experience account in October 2020.
- Or, choose to cancel your annual pass and receive a partial refund.
For Annual Passholders on the monthly payment plan, your options are:
- Receive a one-month extension to your pass. The additional month will be automatically processed and visible in your My Disney Experience account in October 2020. Monthly payments will resume on July 11th.
- Or, choose to cancel your annual pass and waive your monthly payments due after August 11th. Any payments made between July 11th and August 11th will be retroactively refunded and all future payments will be stopped.
Disney will be sending out information to Passholders in early July with details on how to choose an option. If you’re an affected Passholder with questions, reach out to us! We’ll do everything we can to source the answers to your questions in this confusing time. For all the latest Annual Passholder updates, keep an eye on DFB!
